Very good! Will be going back shortly!

Decided to try Zapata after just moving to the area! Chips and salsa to start with were very good and still warm! To start, I had the chicken tortilla soup which was also very tasty. I took 2 fish tacos...delicious ! Do wish they weren't served bare though. No garnish, no slaw just some onion... read more

I'm in Norcross pretty frequently and live Historic Norcross. Have seen this place several times but tonight decided it was time to try. Had the Azteca Molcajete. Have had this dish I other restaurants but this by far was the best. I must try while in the ATL area! Great tequila drinks as well. Can't wait to go back!

We went to meet some friends at Zapata's last week and were very impressed with the food. It was delicious, authentic and unique. You don't find Mexican food like that everywhere. Our server was delightful and attentive too. The restaurant is very cold and drafty which made us very uncomfortable. My wife wore her winter coat throughout the meal. My... More

My wife and I went to Zapata's last night for early dinner .. opens at 5. We both had tacos .. some with shrimp, some with fish along with some guacamole on the side. Excellent flavor with all items. We will definitely visit again when we are in Norcross again.

Zapata's food is excellent. But not only the actual food, the presentation of the food (the look of it on your plate) is superb! And it's located in the quaint historic town of Norcross.

My wife and I came to Zapata's for my birthday. I had eaten at Zapata's before and wanted my wife to try it as well. We were not disappointed. We had specially made margaritas. Everything was made from scratch. You could watch the bartender make the margaritas with fresh ingredients and tequila. The chips and salsa were incredibly fresh and... More

We went to Zapata for the fist time last night for dinner. The service was GREAT and the food was so flavorful and appetizing. We sat right at the front door; which would normally bother me, but it did not even come to mind after we sat down. Our server was so nice and professional. I can not wait to... More

There were two servers and bartender working. There were about 20 people in there when we went at 11:30. We were seated with no menus. We ordered margaritas that took approximately 20 minutes. The bartender then brought over our margaritas and asked if we needed water. We waited for another 10 minutes and I finally got up and asked him... More

I liked the Salsa Verde Enchilada, the pot of Mole not so much (don't remember the name, but they advertise it as their specialty).
