We first started going here in 2001 after they opened the Ballantyne location. We moved away in 2002 and finally returned home to CLT in 2015. We were thrilled that Zapata's was still here AND that the food and ambiance was still as good as...More

Lots of carnitas on the menu, which is always a good sign. Great server hailed from near Mexico City; asked her for recommendations for her favorites, which turned out to be our favorites as well! We had a seafood chimichanga - lots of shrimp, scallops...More
