“Was ok, definitely on the Tex/Mex side”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2012

Ambiance - pretty nice layout and decor. Very comfortable, online reservation system works well.
Service - waitress was very good, pleasant, attentive.
Kitchen - may have hit a coordinated seating with many other parties but the kitchen service was quite slow.
Food - hit or miss. Gambas al ajillo was excellent. Fajitas were sweet (very odd) and not spicy, too much veggies, but came out on a sizzling pan like it should.
Drinks - Margarita was on the heavy side of sour to the point that I switched to the fruit one, which was nice.

So overall, was pretty nice place but it was a German take on Tex/Mex. So far El Gordo Loco comes out on top for food.

“Not even close to Mexican”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2012

Just returned from a night out at Zapata. I must preface this by reminding myself that I am in Munich, GERMANY, "What was I thinking... Mexican in Germany?!?"
This is not even close to the #9 top restaurant in Germany. My suggestion; go about 4 blocks towards town and eat at Augustiner Keller and order the Schnitzel... you're in Munich, not Peurto Vallarta!!!

“Good tex/mex in Munich”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2011

Relative to Munich, this was good tex;mex. A real upgrade vs. Milagros at Viktualienmarkt. Pluses: fajitas served in skillet and tasty, tortillas made of wheat and good as well, great ambience and excellent service. Minuses: salsa not home-made nor chunky. Guacamole just ok, vegetarian enchilada with little cheese and flavorless rice. Best in Munich but just average if compared to Texas.

“okay, for average Mexican food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2011

Been all over the world and love Mexican but this place is average. Chips are Indian, not Mexican! I am latin and know a great place, and this is just average. Margaritas are okay. Food was okay, but nothing to write home. Best to stick with Indian or German food in this city or find another Mexican place.

“Good food, fun atmosphere, great service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2011

Dined there Aug 6, 2011. Looking for a change of pace after two weeks of German food while on vacation. Tex-Mex food was very good. Service, especially our waitress Mimi, was exceptional!!
