So you think you like Mexican food? Here’s Zoca for you.

VCU’s answer to the Mexican food audience. They make everything right in front of you, exactly how you order it, whether that’s a burrito or hard shell tacos. They have you covered.

OPTIONS
You can have tacos, burritos, and quesadillas. Your typical fastfood Mexican type thing. You have choices of chicken and beef for your meats, with tomato, lettuce, cheeses,  and other toppings with a variety of salsas.

LOCATION
907 Floyd Ave. – Student Commons

HOURS
Monday-Thursday: 10:30 a.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Friday: 10:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Saturday: 11:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Sunday: closed

IF YOU HAVE A DINING PLAN
Dining dollars before 2 p.m. Swipes can be used 2 p.m. to closing time.

BUSY TIMES
Definitely not as busy as Nao and Zen, so I would not expect a long line any time. Maybe around dinner time is when I would be a bit worried.

QUALITY
It tastes alright. I wouldn’t say it’s the best option you have as far as VCU dining goes, but it definitely has its niche down pat. If you’re craving Mexican food and all you have to work with is swipes, go for it!

RECOMMENDED OPTIONS
Burritos are easily the most value for your swipe. They really pack it down.

TIPS
You can get the melted cheese on your items now. You can also ask for salsa with your chips, but you cannot get melted cheese on the side for your chips for some reason.
