El Zarape is a family-run business, and everyone in the immediate vicinity knows this place and is known in this place. The food is EXCELLENT! There are no reservations, so come early or expect to wait. The wait is worth it!!

My husband and I love this place. It's family owned and the family works the place. You're always treated like one of them and they are always glad to see you. Feel good when they go out of your way to greet you. The food is awesome, the drinks are delicious. Chips warm and the salsa is yummy.

Small hometown feeling in Cypress. Small but gerat food, and a feeling as if they have known you for years. Full bar at this small quint Mexican restaurant. Most of the guests are local residents due to the off beat location. Taco night is wednesday and is busy, a must try.
