We call and made reservations for a group 9 we told them we could split up and not have to sit all at one table. Upon arriving it took about 5-10 mins for someone to acknowledge that we were there.

We arrived on a Friday night and only had to wait less than ten minutes to be seated for dinner. Our waitress was very friendly. The chips and hot sauce were good. The cheese enchiladas, rice and beans that I had were good as well. The restaurant is cute and we would consider returning if we are ever in Cody... More

Just got back from Zapata's for dinner. We really enjoyed our food and the service was great. I had a margarita which was tasty as well. Our waitress was friendly and efficient. If we come back to Cody, we will be sure to stop in again.

I think anyone who likes Mexican food will be happy here. I thought our server was quite excellent, and... More

Food served is exquisite, just for that reason you should go there, because service is not good. There was no fork and knife on the table, the host person was not smiling, and The restaurant didnot have chicken left a saturday night( chicken is very popular in the mexican food, that's a shame). Service in Cody, Wyoming is not generally... More

It's characterful inside with a very mexican feel, brightly coloured mexican blankets, mexican pottery, chillis everywhere, bright mexican colours, really nicely done. I especally loved the booths with their mexican... More
