Great for more than a decade

Been going here on & off for 15 yrs. A great family run place with many familiar employees still there all these years later. The food has been consistent for all these years as well. Arguably the best homemade tortillas in town. Chile Colorado amongst the best I've ever sampled. Great... read more

Award winning restaurant did not disappoint. Nice atmosphere. Would not have stopped if not for trip advisor. Needs a bigger parking lot.

We recently discovered this restaurant, and you will not be disappointed. The atmosphere is festive without being too cheesy and the food is tasty with very plentiful portions, be prepared for a take home box. The wait staff never lets your drink get empty and they are the friendliest in town.

Recently, we ate here for an early (Saturday) Father's Day dinner. It was about 5pm and we were afraid that some of the EDC (Electric Daisy Carnival) fans were there and was expecting a long wait. Luckily, the line was non to be found and was seated in less than 5 minutes from entering. The decoration of the foyer already... More

This place was a great find. Ate here twice in two days. Once for dinner and once for lunch. Very good seafood and traditional Mexican food. Great feel and great service. Next time I am in Vegas, I will return.

Everything was great, and I would have been content with simply the tortilla chips and salsa with bean dip as served when we were seated. The servers were friendly and attentive, and I left with a very full stomach! The chips were also very popular with my kids, and they don't usually eat tortilla chips and bean dip!

The food and service were excellent. I especially enjoyed the guacamole that was made fresh at the table. Portions were easily enough for two meals.

Not having been to this restaurant before I asked the waitress what I should order. She suggested a chicken dish with creamy white sauce. not sure what it was called but it was very good! Staff was courteous and helpful cost a little more than i expected but there was easily enough to make two meals out of it. They... More

We stopped at Viva Zapata's for lunch when traveling from Phoenix to Seattle. Their location is right off the freeway (I-15), there is gas next to the restaurant. We stopped due to the reviews. We will continue to stop here on our travels. Their food was very good, the service was excellent, add in the authentic decor and we enjoyed... More
