Detroit’s El Zocalo restaurant listed for sale
El Zocalo, a Mexican restaurant in Detroit that’s known for its large portions, is up for sale.
Yvonne Cordoba, owner of the southwest Detroit staple, wants $1.5 million for two-story restaurant at 3400 Bagley. The sale also includes the 13,000-square-foot building’s Class C liquor license, according to an online listing.
Cordoba could not be immediately reached for comment Tuesday. Listing agent Christopher Monsour also could not be reached.
The 390-seat restaurant has been open for more than 30 years. Cordoba’s husband, Victor, ran the restaurant with her until he died in 2013.
The restaurant is known for large portions and low prices, and sits on Bagley with several other Mexicantown favorites.
Eater Detroit reports the restaurant will close Sunday. The property is listed as “immediately” available.
The restaurant has two banquet rooms, three full bars and a pavilion outside, according to the listing.
