Value is good; food forgettable but edible. I would not go out of my way to eat here again. Nice ambiance; shares space with a tile store which is different.

Been here several times since moving to Powell, WY. I really like their carnita burritos and the house margs are really good and decently priced.

After reading a review we visited Zapata's mid afternoon for Margaritas and nachos. Menu looked good and interesting. Closes for the winter I think.

Food was good but not great; prices were fine. Staff is very friendly. We would probably go another time to try it out.
