We went with my future in laws before the holiday because it was near their house. It wasn't very busy for a Saturday night and we were about to discover why. 2 out of our 4 entrees were brought out first & we had to politely let the food get cold while we waited for the other two. Did I... More

This was my first visit to Port St. Lucie. My daughter was attending a small Civil War reenactment and I was looking for a place that we wouldn't feel too awkward in her Civil War attire. After driving up and down the main strip we finally settled on Zapata's for dinner. The meal was very good. The portions were more... More

Stopped by Zapatas for dinner after seeing it right on US-1 between Port St Lucie and Fort Pierce. We had a great meal. The food was served very hot temperature wise and was also delightfully spicy hot. The place was clean and the service was friendly and prompt. There was a good variety on the menu and the servings were... More

Here's what was good about the experience: the staff was very friendly and the salsa that came with the chips was tasty - probably made on premises. What wasn't so good: The rest of the food - my burrito was bland. There was absolutely no seasoning in the sauce. I ended up just picking out the chicken so it wouldn't... More

I've been here probably twice or three times. Every time the food is either burnt or just mediocre. Not very impressed at all. I think I had a sangria and it was ok. That's about it. Staff sometimes appear nervous around customers ... I wonder if it's a language barrier or something. Not sure. But they will often smile and... More

While in the service, I was stationed in El Paso, Tex., and used to go to Juarez, Mexcio occasionally. There were elderly women there who sold tamales wrapped in corn husks out of wash tubs....but they were DELICIOUS!!! I've been looking for something just as good ever since, but it wasn't until we paid a visit to Zapata's that I... More

I am not a fan of Mexican food so when our group decided to have their monthly meeting here I was not too thrilled. I tried a lunch pairing which was ok - the fried beans just looked nasty so I didn't even try them. This all American gal favors all American fare.

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