Had vegetarian food here (these are not listed on the menu ). They were very helpful at customizing the food to suit vegetarian needs. The veg soup and tortillas were excellent.

Waitress service was lacking in service and friendliness. Chips and salsa, and iced tea are not availble on menu. Food is pretty good though.. Ill go back, just wont expect too much,. Note Not a date place, lacking ambiance.

We always have breakfast here at least once when we are visiting our family who live here. They have remodelled since we were here last. It looks good! The chorizo and eggs are great. The flour tortillas are great too. And the service is excellent!

We take most of our Nogales visiting international visitors to El Zarape for lunch for a true Mexican experience. The food is good, service is fast and parking is adequate.

Great menu full of mexican favorites, generous portions, excellent service. Truly a local secret. The menudo is the best around, but a little stingy on the tripe.

After a strong recommendation for this family run restaurant, I was a bit disappointed. My first dish of enchiladas was inedible, I couldn't cut through the enchilada! The replacement dish was sub-par. I've had better Mexican food in New Hampshire. Be forwarned, they have no...More
