Authentic Mexican dishes! If you ever have had a nice margarita......ask for a Crystal Ball ( a wow rum drink)! It is the only 151 drink that still comes lit with flames. You have to use a straw to push the inverted lime down into the drink to put it out and then the drink clouds up like a crystal ball!! Refreshing anytime of the year! Oh yeah, the food is fresh and the staff always greets you with open arms.

I have been going to Zapata's in Ballantyne for over six years. After my last two visits, I can't say I will be running back anytime soon. We went for Father's Day and were somewhat disappointed. The beef in the enchiladas was tough and too salty. The queso and guacamole (as appetizers) were the best part of the meal. Kids do eat free on Sundays, but that's about the only real plus to a restaurant that used to be one of my favorites.

This restaurant doesn't have much ambience, but the food is good, portions large, and prices reasonable

Zapatas consistently meets our expectations for good Mexican food and great service. If you're passing through Charlotte make time to stop for a good meal.

It's a great place to take company from out of town. We went to the one on John J Delaney. Nice view of the water, drink specials. Food is decent for the price.
