Ate here while traveling through - thought due to high rating, we would give it a try. Not crowded on Tuesday night- service fast & good. Food served hot & it tasted very good. Prices more $$$ than $$!

This is a great place for happy hour drinks with friends. During happy hour (4-6:30) the drinks are made with double shots same price as a single. The best meal to me is the Zapatas fish. I know a Mexican restaurant with great fish ?...More

The lunch specials are a great deal. I went with the Zapata's fish meal. Add chips and salsa, and a tea, and I was all set. It was pretty busy at lunch time. Cool place.

Reseal good Mexican food especially the fajitas but you have to pay up for it! Margaritas ate the very best in town!

This is a definite step up from the average Mexican food restaurant. White table cloths and great service are the norm. Good food is a constant.

Chicken and beef fajitas were excellent. Baked queso definitely good as well. Baked apple pie with Carmel sauce and ice cream was good - not great. Service was fast and friendly. Tea glasses are a little small. Would definitely go back if in the area...More
