We just had lunch at Zapata's and enjoyed it. My pollo asado burrito was excellent. It was so huge that I'm taking half home. My husband said his enchiladas were good but not outstanding. The salsa was very good and the chips tasted freshly made. The cheese dip was made with white cheese and jalapenos but it was very mild. (We actually prefer Tex-Mex style chili con queso, but this was OK.) The two small, complimentary soapillas were delicious! Overall, we enjoyed our lunch and would definitely eat here again.

This is far better than any chain restaurant.
Try the Street Tacos. Great staff. Best Mexican I've experienced. My wife agrees. Try and sit outside if the weather is calm.

This place does have a nice location and if the weather is nice you can sit outside next to the pond. The cheese quesadilla was barely as good as one you get a Chili's or any other chain restaurant, shame for a place that is supposed to be so authentic. The service was good though and the atmosphere is nice.

The location is great, the food was amazing (I love sopas, but they are so hard to find), and there was so much food!

Great place to grab some Mexican food while staying at the University Hilton. They offer multiple vegetarian options and their margarita's are tasty!
