We usually get a combo meal. Personally get a Tostada and a Chile Relleno (without the raspberry sauce). Fantastic food!!! Hubby gets two Chile Rellenos. YUM!!!

After coming to Zapata's for the first time with our family, we noticed roaches in the restaurant and water on the floor. The food was plentiful but mediocre, and the management was no where to be found to make a complaint! I DO NOT RECOMMEND this place and I feel the health department should be called. Apparently there is no... More

I really like to go here to sit out on there porch, which is like a greenhouse type room. Decor is nice, and service is always good. Typical Mexican food...I think Tuesdays-Thursdays there is free food at the bar when you are buying drinks. Not a bad place, it is comfortable and drinks are always good.

Good service, authentic Mexican atmosphere (mismatched worn out seats). The food was just ok but pricy. It looks cool outside but there are much better places.

We dine here fairly often. Excellent food and reasonably priced. Service has always been good. We consider it to be our favorite Tex mex restaurant.

We had the good fortune to eat here recently as a party of four on a Friday night. We were seated promptly in the dining room which had a few open tables. Our server Brian did a great job with the drinks and food order. The margaritas glasses are massive and the drink was yummy. The food was served after... More

This was my second attempt to try this place out and it failed miserably. My first try I waited for 20 min without even getting so much as a drink order so me and my 8 month pregnant wife left. We decided to give it another shot several weeks later with roughly the same result. The waitress got our drink... More
