Awesome!

I have been to Zapata's twice while traveling through Cody. I loved it both times. Once I was alone and the wait staff was very helpful! The second time I brought my husband along and he thought the food was tremendously flavorful! We enjoyed a bucket of beer on a great summer night outside on... read more

I had the taco dinner here with the soft shell chicken with rice and corn. It was really good and not too heavy, like some Mexican food can be. The best part was the Mexican corn and the salsa (which had a little 'heat' to it). Good service. Very reasonably priced. Seemed popular with families. There is parking on one... More

We eat here many times a month. We love their reasonable prices and quick service. Love their beans - whole - and their rice is the best ever! Or you can order Mexican corn and beans. We regularly eat their enchiladas smothered in green and sour cream sauce (we usually order the delish chicken, pork, or shredded beef) and one... More

We were lucky enough to have a reserved table in the covered outside seating area to watch the parade. Right on the Main Street in the centre of Cody. Great Margaritas and breakfast burritos! First time in USA for independence day!

We were excited to find a Mexican restaurant in town and were looking forward to this meal, but there really wasn't anything special about it. It was touted as new Mexican cuisine (we weren't clear on what that meant) but didn't come away impressed. We were surprised that they didn't have a cheese (queso) dip as an appetizer, but did...

Sorry you didn't enjoy your visit to Zapatas. But I was surprised that you said my portions are small. Because they are anything but small. But I will tell you that you can't order a meal for one share it and then say it wasn't enough. If you read all of the reviews you will see that over 90% of... More

I started eating here when I moved to Cody 18 months ago and still eat there every time I pass through. The chips and salsa can only be described as special; very flavorful salsa, very thick, yet crunchy chips, made in the kitchen. My favorite dish is the shredded beef tacos. Great service and a great location on Cody's quaint... More

Food was well flavored, served piping hot, drinks were very good, surprised to find such good Mexican food in Wy. Service was excellent, good for lunch or dinner. Very reasonable priced. Remember you have to enter the candy store next to Zapata's in order to enter Zapata's

Not a big fan of this place. Granted their margaritas and salsa are good, but thats about it. Food is never good and service is not great either. Their outside seating is nice in the summer though. This is more of a New Mexico style place. If you want real good Mexican food go to, Taco's El Tacanazo.

We had enought of the traditional meat and potatoes fare and welcomed a change of taste. The place was packed considering it is towards the end if the tourist season. The food was good and tasty though not mind blowing amazing TexMex. The portions are big and none of us could finish our food though we hate to waste food.... More
