This place is next to the Starbucks so easy to find. I visited the restaurant a year ago and really enjoyed. I went back and the food was absolutely solid. Their tortilla chips are so fresh and tasty, a true test. The staff are the same, which says a lot about the owner, and the restaurant is spotless, i.e. clean... More

Not really my type place. You order at the counter and serve your own drinks I think. Very casual. Like a fast food place. Very popular with locals based on price. The food is OK but there are lots of better Mexican places around.

Pretty good Mexican food in Desert Hot Springs. We got our dinners for take away . Nothing really outstanding in MHO but just good overall. A casual, safe bet in Desert Hot Springs.

Ridiculously brightly lit, with ridiculously loud music, a storefront taqueria opening onto a parking lot. Not sure what the secret is, but the food was delicious. I had a tostada, and the refried beans were really good, just like a previous reviewer said they would be. Their pico de gallo salsa is super good too. So probably not a good... More

16 reviews 5.0 star rating 9/20/2016 Amazing food! We had breakfast burritos one day, which were unbelievable. I'm not usually a fan of chorizo, but they were done just right. Went back for dinner and had the carnitas, which was cooked to perfection, nice char on the outside and falling apart tender. The best refried beans every...usually you get some... More

The food here is so authentic. The surroundings are spotless and the place is always full of customers. I have never had anything that did not exceed my expectations.

Ate here about a month ago. Had a chicken enchilada which was really good. What really impressed me was the speed and efficiency of their operation. It's counter service, then you wait for your number to be called. The cooks and expeditors do a great job of cranking the food out. It's as much fun to watch as it is... More

We love the chorizo and egg breakfast burrito! It is large enough to be breakfast for the two of us. Restaurant is bright and clean and the owners are very nice.

Arriving Desert Hot Springs in the evening our group of 13 people (7 kids) needed instantly some food. Zapopan delivered as promised and managed to serve us all with a variety of Mexican dishes. Highly recommendable.
