Very good authentic mexican

Good food and decent atmosphere. My only complaint on the Fajitas chihuahua was the beef was a bit lesser quality. Flavors were great but meat was a bit "stringy". Zapata Margarita was decent but a bit too much lime flavor. Also it was SMALL. Served in an Old Fashioned Glass. Waiter was... read more

Zapata's is always a treat. It is located in downtown Norcross and has a delightful atmosphere and a cute deck in back to sit in. The food is delicious! We always enjoy our dinners there!

This seems to be pretty authentic Mexican food. Good flavor, good portion size. Fast, friendly service. Would definitely eat here again.

Always good food, always dependable. Great bartenders and service. Not your standard Mexican cuisine.

We go there often. Food is always fresh and flavorful It's not Tex-mex, just really good Mexican food. Wait staff is attentive and cordial, not overly friendly. We go for lunch. It's kind of a guy place, lots of businessmen, not so many women. Protein is featured, there is not much green, except salads. It's not noisy, you can carry... More

This is our standard go-to when we are home. We drive out of our way to hit this place up. They are authentic Mexican, not the Americanized version that most folks know and love. So good. So fresh. Check it out!

Was in the area on business and decided on Mexican. It was recommended by the hotel where I stayed. This is quite good. I had the fajita and was not disappointed with quality and also the generous portion. Chips/ salsa very good as starters as well. The meal was a good value !!

Molcajetes --- these things are God's gift to man. A firefly hot lava bowl filled with meat, cactus, tomatoes, pearl onions, and cheese.... Every time I go, I eat this and love it even more. Thank you Zapata for such a delicious meal.

I have visited this restaurant a couple of times with friends. The last time was with friends for a birthday party. The food was excellent, the molcajete bowl is AWESOME! We also got a pitcher of fresh made margaritas which are delicious and strong... NOT pre-made! Victor and the staff are awesome. If you're in the downtown Norcross area, you've... More
