My family lives in the Texarkana region and Zapata's is a favorite restaurant for big parties or family get togethers. The food is good, nothing exceptional in my opinion, but the service is great and the atmosphere is a lot of fun. It's a bit pricey for what you get, but given the options in Texarkana it's one of the... More

Upscale Mexican with the addition of Quail on the menu. A little pricier than your run of the mill Mexican joint but it was not run of the mill and well worth it. I had the grilled quail which had a magnificent flavor and my aunt had the soft taco plate that used marinate flank steak and they were to... More

I'm not going to try to falsely convince anyone that this is the best Tex-Mex north of the border. It's not. But it does have some things that make it standout. First, the owners/managers are almost always visible somewhere in the restaurant. And they often greet you with a friendly smile. Though that doesn't seem like much, it's very common... More

This restaurant has to be associated with Superiors Bar and Grill. It has their old menu choices and the frajitas are served exactly the same. This us a good thing! Had a kitchen mixup with my order but other than that the food was outstanding. Location is downtown which could be a negative for some folks. Try it, you won't... More

Love to have lunch at this restaurant. Great Mexican food and great salads. Salads are large and feature fresh ingredients. Service is fast and ability to request specific changes or additions is easy to make. Price is slightly higher than I would normally spend for lunch but with great service, easy parking, and superb food I don't mind paying a... More

I asked hotel where I should go downtown, this was there first response. I was taken back when I saw white table cloths and staff in black and white, not what I expected for Mexican. I thought it was overpriced and the fajita plate was not overwhelming in quantity. Food was good. They don't serve normal fajitas of chicken, steak,... More
