Zapata's cafe offers a diverse menu and excellent service. The queso fundida appetizer was especially good as was the chimichanga grande.

My wife and I recently went to this restaurant for their Cinco De Mayo celebration. I am not usually a fan of Mexican cuisine but I was pleasantly surprised with what we found. The service was very good even thought it was fairly crowded for the celebration and the food was very tasty. Prices are very reasonable, and the Margaritas... More

Very limited on beers; service was mediocre at best; Food was nothing to write home about, though I do have to write it here. Their chips and salsa gave us both after taste...not "hot or spice" to anything as one might expect. We got the fajita's and the tortillas were stuck together. I asked for some salsa a little "hotter"... More

This is a nice friendly Mexican restaurant, good portion, drinks 2 for 1 all day, every day, music with Cliff Cassidy live on Friday nights is a hit, great service.

The service was very friendly and attentive despite me being a bit difficult at first due to the level of noise in the area where we were seated. They ran out of kid's menus and crayons and the waiter made it sounds like that is a common occurrence which shows lack of proper planning on their part. Thankfully the complimentary... More

The outside of the restaurant pulled us in for what was expected to be a great night of food . The other reviews was spot on the food came out with hot plates and dried out food . The fish tacos were just Ok. Lexie did a great job keeping the glasses full .

What IS good here is the taco salad and yes you can eat the bowls! Generous size taco salad with plenty of meat deliciously browned and tasty taco bowls.... partner always orders extra meat. At $8.39 this is good value and is always very filling. Service is always good. One caveat: when the sign outside reads "two for one cocktails"... More

The food was greasy, bland and took over an hour. Drink was watered down. The bathrooms where gross and music was terrible. I will NEVER go there again!
