Service is always SO fast here! I go to all locations and all are wonderful. They always make the dishes to order and are friendly in service. This is our favorite Mexican restaurant!

My friends and I went for lunch, I decided to order Tortilla Soup. I have been there before and I didn't like their food, so I figured I couldn't go wrong ordering soup.Well, was I wrong, it was horrible. It was a red/brown flavorless broth with shredded chicken, not the grilled chicken as the menu stated. No more Zapatas for me.

If you're looking for authentic Mexican - this isn't the place to go. My husband & I moved here from TX and we have yet to find authentic Mexican or even Tex-Mex. at Zapata's, I asked for queso and the waiter had no idea what it was. When I said cheese dip, he understood. But it was runny & watery. Margaritas tasted like our juice. Not great service either. We won't go back.

Situated within spitting distance from the Hilton University in Charlotte this little Mexican gem offers tasty food at a good price. The atmosphere is suitable for families or business and the portions are big. Consider Zapatas as a nice alternative to the lame dining options around that hotel.
