Very fun and funky restaurant! Food was served fresh, hot and fast! Margaritas were very tasty! Definitely plan to visit again when in town. Worth a trip downtown!

This is a fantastic place to eat! The food is always good, wonderful atmosphere, and great servers. I have never been dissapointed with anything!!! Below it asks if I went Couple, Family, Friends, Business, or Solo. Been every way except for business. I highly recommend it for any type of eating experience.

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.

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
