Ok Tex Mex style

I had chicken enchiladas verdes. They were good but not excellent. Salsa was tasty but not too hot. Portions were very large and I didn't finish mine. Overall it is better than fast food options and the prices were reasonable.

Very popular place. Ordered two single items and was charged double for a dinner, they corrected it after I complained. Table of drunk men behind us, one screamed at top of his lungs every time a woman walked in the door or by the table. Two bartenders, one was very good and professional, the other cocky, constantly flexing his muscles.... More

If you like Mexican food, I would recommend Zapata's. I always go there for at least one meal whenever I am in town. The staff is friendly and they do have an outside patio section which is great in the summer.

The restaurant itself is really large and is probably better for going in a large group then most other Mexican places. However, the food is not very impressive and if you go on karaoke night good luck enjoying your meal lol.

Reasonably-priced, fairly standard "Mexican" fare. Close to highway. Food was fresh and well-presented. Try the carnitas with green sauce.

The margaritas were decently made and man did they sneak up on me. Fortunately, I only had to walk across the bridge to the DoubleTree. The steak fajitas came out quite hot. Meat was a bit burned but I found that it enhanced the flavor. All in all, great meal for the price. My only concern was, sitting at the... More

The service was fast and attentive, the food was very tasty (try the shrimp tampico) and the drinks were large and delicious. Just what we needed after a long day of driving. And just across the parking lot from our hotel!

I was in the Collinsville area for a family reunion. We are Americans of Latino descent( it plays a part in this episode). Our group consisted of 15-20 and we came here after our family dinner to have a few drinks. The building is awesome and big. It was crowded at first so it appears this is one of the... More
