I took a group of 13 for a corp dinner. The staff was extremely polite and attentive to our request. We had a quick change and ask for outdoor seating and it was not a problem. Food was good . The guacamole was the best

If you need somewhere to go for a quick lunch, this is a sure bet. The manager is always friendly and treats you like family. The lunch menu is priced well for a huge portion.

Food is awesome and atmosphere is authentic. Great Mexican drinks. Casual environment. I had the fajitas and they were very good. We went to Cantjina 1511 and I thought Zapatas was better.

Zapata's is our first choice for Mexican dining. We pass several Mexican restaurants driving to Zapata's, but the drive is well worth the effort. The atmosphere is inviting and comfortable, the service is courteous and attentive, and the food is consistently good. Highly recommended.

The staff was friendly and kept up with filling our drinks. The food was delicious and I know what I am talking about because even though I am not Mexican, I do have a chihuahua at home.
