“Better Before They Moved”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

In a town with just a few restaraunts, you'd think that they would do better.

Before they moved to the other end of the shopping strip we would stop in every so often.
Both times we've been since they moved we have been the only table busy in the restaurant.

With one table and one server - service was prompt.
Like others have commented, the food has much to be desired.
Bland and canned.

I'm hoping they can turn it around

“Good, could be better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

With a plethora of Mexican restaurants in the Champaign area, Los Zarapes just doesn't cut it when compared to other nearby restaurants. It's good enough to tolerate when I need a quick carry-out fix, but otherwise I end up driving into town for higher-quality Mexican fare.

“Poor choice”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

Had stomach issues the last time I ate there. Most of the food appears pre-prepared and microwaved. Nothing original. Weak margaritas.

“FYI”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

If you want authentic mexican food DON'T expect to get it from Los Zarapes. The service was great and the food was served quickly. However, it wouldn't surprise me if it was served straight from the can. The food lacked flavor and was extremely bland.
