We never miss a meal at Viva Zapata when we pass through Las Vegas. We discovered it accidentally but return again and again very intentionally. The food is excellent, the menu comprehensive, but what impresses me is the staff. They perform like they have been trained by a very high end European wait staff. The service is what turns a...

What can I say this place is great, they offer some delicious yet affordable selections. Their lunchtime menu starts at 8.99 for two tacos, rice and beans. You like guacamole? Oh man they make their guac at your table in front of you and Wow is it tasty. If mexican food is your vice then this place is nice..

While visiting our son stationed at nearby Nellis AFB, we choose Viva Zapatas for his Birthday dinner on a Sunday night. They were very busy and we had a party of 7 and they sat us quickly, before we could even order they brought little bowls of a Mexican broth type soup for the 3 little ones who were starved... More

Every time I go to Nellis Air Force Base, I cannot pass up an opportunity to have a meal at Viva Zapatas. My Army buddies and I have often had lunch here throughout the years, and I bring all my local friends and out of town family and guests here. They have all raved about the wonderful food. Always consistent,... More

Based on a recommendation from a North Las Vegas resident - we visited Viva Zapatas. Fantastic service and food !! Very authentic - you won't be disappointed with your visit. Very good salsa - chips were also served with refried beans. A must visit on your next trip to Las Vegas !

We drove in from California - out hotel room was not ready so we came here to eat. It was delicious. I loved the beans they served with the chips and salsa. The food was amazing and very authentic. We heard it was good and never had been here before. We also had a couple of drinks and they were... More

The food was very good, the live music was awesome, the service was good, but I left off 5 stars because I felt that the prices were alittle high. Not crazy high, but could be better.

This restaurant had a wonderful atmosphere. Its not a fancy place, but it is very Mexican feeling. The food was the best Mexican I have had since I moved to Nevada, but I have had better. Still, if you have a hunger for Mexican food and are in Las Vegas and have a car with you, I recommend trying this... More

I had driven by this place hundreds of times and never really noticed it as the exterior doesn't stand out and the parking lot is small. However, the food here is authentic and delicious! The staff was great and the prices are reasonable. Delicioso!
