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

Love the revitalized Historic Norcross and restaurants like Zapata's play a huge part in that affection. So refreshing not to be stuck with the typical selection of #1 - #15 Mexican menus. The food was excellent, service fast and friendly. Enchiladas, Crepes and it was Friday so to be a pig I required a fish taco to finish. THAT was... More

The did is excellent here and a great change from the standard Tex-mex fair you normally get. My wife and I split a molcejete and sopas. The waitress was friendly and helpful. We returned a second time and had a shod if not better service from our waiter. And remember, the service received is often a reflection of the attitude... More
