My wife and I went to Zapatas last night. The place was busy and we expected that it would be slow so we went into the bar and sat at one of the round tables. We waited about 10 minutes and no one came to take an order. Three other small groups entered the bar after us and received service.... More

Portions were good and preparation was great. The staff was really accommodating. They can substitute most of the meat with spinach for vegetarians. Good evening out with family. I had vegetarian fajitas (got more then 50% of onion in :-( my vegetables) but the portions were so big that I managed to pick and choose. Rest of my family enjoyed... More

My sweetie gave me free choice of restaurants for our Valentine's Day dinner. That night, I wanted a margarita. We have been to Zapatas twice before but, we always have eaten in the restaurant/main dining room area. We decided to sit in the bar area and we were treated with a wonderful bartender, Victor. He made the most AMAZING Patron... More

I would call this a more upscale Mexican restaurant. It looks so small from the outside but it is quite large. The store front is deceiving and my first thought was hmm. Friendly service, great for large groups, or families. I found the pricing a bit more than usual. Street tacos (2 chicken tacos with sides $12.50) My local Mexican... More

We were in Charlotte for a soccer tournament (team of 13-year old boys) and had our team dinner at Zapata's Cantina. The service for all 58 of us was beyond outstanding and the food superb. The Zapata's Team went out of their way to make it easy for us to order with separate checks by family (and we weren't sitting... More

Had a great meal sitting outside under the awning with soft Mexican music overhead, the flow of water from the nearby fountain and topped off with super tasty eats. The wife and I just decided this place now makes it to our favorites list for Ballantyne.

The first time I ate dinner here it was excellent. The second time, it was not nearly as good. The service wasn't as good the second time around and I felt a bit sick after eating my chicken quesadilla
