I am a frequent customer of Los Zarapes and are good friends with the owners Felipe, Carmen, and their family. Great service, great food and great prices.

Los Zarapes provides a nice sit down meal at a good price and a fast pace. You see Los Zarapes' dining room from the parking lot of the shopping center. You enter the tiny enclosed center section of the shopping center, then enter the restaurant through their door on the right. The restaurant decor remains simple, but bright and cheerful. The booths are sturdily constructed in the rustic style out of two-by-four lumber smoothly finished and stained with a transparent light reddish color stain. The tables are sturdy and the seating spaces are comfortable and not crowded. The whole restaurant smells and looks clean.

My daughter and I tried Los Zarapes for a late weekday lunch. When we entered, the waiter immediately came from the kitchen, greeted us with a big smile and "Ola," and seated us in one of the window booths. Within a minute, he brought fresh chips and salsa. The salsa tasted very good with a well balanced heat level--nicely spicy, but not searingly spicy. The menu listed many choices, from full fledged dinners, to quick lunch combos, to individual items. I chose a chicken entree meal for myself and a beef and cheese entree meal for my daughter. The food arrived hot and fresh within a very short time. The food tasted very good--as good or better than many Mexican restaurants that I've tried in the Southwest. The beans were very good, and the white cheese sauce on my chicken was delicious. The waiter removed dishes quickly and courteously throughout our meal, always with a smile, and promptly refilled our drinks. The experience impressed me enough to stay for dessert. We ordered the sopapilla with ice cream. It arrived very promptly, and I was surprised to see it decorated with real whipped cream, a cherry, and candy sprinkles. My toddler daughter was very enthused to see this effort--I don't know if they always decorate the sopapilla this way, or just for little ones, but it was nice. The presentation was good, but the flavor was even better--the tortilla portion nicely crispy and decent quality ice cream on top. We came away quite full and with a doggy bag of leftovers for only $15 for both meals, our soda and milk, and a dessert.

Los Zarapes has everything down perfect. The waiter proves top notch, the waiter and the kitchen provide very prompt service, the atmosphere inside remains pleasant, the staff keeps the restaurant very clean, and the food tastes great. I highly recommend Los Zarapes to anyone looking for an enjoyable meal experience in Mahomet.
