Zocalo closes South Broadway location
A notorious black hole location on South Broadway has claimed another victim: The southern outpost of Zocalo closed its doors at the end of March.
In the '70s, the building at 2200 South Broadway was held a Mr. Steak. Since then, it's been home to El Ranchito, Broadway Grill, Hades and El Olvido, among other ill-fated ventures.
Zocalo's original location at 12 East 11th Avenue in Capitol Hill is still going strong. The restaurant was opened by members of the Vargas family, including a veteran of the nearby Benny's, nearly four years ago, and won our Best Free Chips and Salsa award in the Best of Denver 2013.
