First off, get the Mexican guacamole. Second, I've never had anything bad here. We had to send everything we ordered back, which was frustrating. Nothing showed up as it had been ordered, so we were frustrated. Decent little local place though.

A chance stop for a late lunch. A number of cars in the lot always a good sign. An average Mexican restaurant. Food had good flavor, dish proportions fairly typical. Nothing to distinguish this restaurant yet nothing to keep me from recommending it either. Pleasant lunch experience

One of my favorite Mexican experiences..Great food and margaritas served by warm friendly staff.. I truly feel like a family member here.. Large scenic patio area which hosts great live music. Just a short walkable distance from downtown Roswell shops and sights.. 👍🏼👍🏼

We have been eating here for many years, before the name change. The menu has changed recently and not for the better. However, today will be the last time. The wife and I ordered Steak Fajitas......and they were horrible. The meat was tough and un-chewable. The veggies were big chunks of onions and peppers with absolutely no seasoning and no... More

Really disturbed by this as my family and I have visited here on multiple occasions. Their score was a 62 or U for a variety of reasons that are outlined in the online report. I will tell you that my family enjoyed the guacamole immensely. Very sad they seem to have an issue here and hope they can correct it... More

This place has a homey feel to it and you get the feel you that you are supporting a local business. Their portions are very generous. A solid thumbs up!

I came to El Zarape with my husband last night. We sat outside and chips and salsa were delivered. The salsa was delicious but the chips were a tad stale. I ordered the tlalpeno soup and enchiladas acapulco and he got a burrito. My soup was excellent, lots of chicken and veggies and cheese, I would definitely get the soup... More

Between the boyfriend and me, we sampled burritos, tacos, enchiladas and the chili relleno. Everything was terribly bland. By far the worst Mexican restaurant I've been to in the Atlanta area and I have been to many. The margaritas were tasty and our server was very attentive.

I have been here off and on, mainly for the Speedy Gonzales which is ordinary but fine. Yesterday we wanted to try some of their 'specialty' dishes so we ordered the Chili Poblano and the Guajillo Burrito and tortilla soup as an appetizer. The soup was fine, nicely spiced with big chunks of chicken. The burrito was ok, though small... More
