Had a great dinner for 3 last night. Love the fresh hot chips and delicious salsa! I had the steak fajita skillet which is large and scrumptious. Really good service and great atmosphere.

I've been to El Zarape twice. The service is HORRENDOUS! The first time I went, it was at the peak of dinner time so I cut them some slack. The food that time was okay.
