We had breakfast on a Sunday, our first choice was closed. Food was excellent and service was good. We would go there again.

We had dinner with a total of six people - 4 of the 6 ordered 'The General' quesadilla, and all four of us were totally happy with the choice! Honestly, one of the best quesadillas that I've had in a long time, and I order a quesadilla frequently. One person ordered some shrimp tacos, and one fellow had some enchiladas... More

This restaurant looks a bit sketchy from the exterior but push past that for a delicious breakfast. My husband and I split the el jefe steak omelet which was fantastic. He added on a chili relleno because someone else at our table had gotten one and raved about it. He was impressed!

We ordered food and they modified it to suit our taste. The place is not stylish but is remarkably clean and the food was excellent. Very moderate prices.

I love the diablo shrimp meal at this place and I haven't had an entrée I didn't enjoy. They have beer and margaritas and Mexican coke in a bottle. My Mom had the steak and shrimp meal and had enough leftover for a second meal. I definitely recommend this place.

This local Mexican restaurant offers good tasting food. Most dining is inside with a table on the outside. A small size establishment with tables in two rooms. Wine and beer is served also. Good portion size. Steak quesadilla-delicious.

My wife and I decided to try El Zarape after a review that I read on Trip Advisor. To say that we were not disappointed would be an understatement. We have lived in Yuma our entire lives but were not aware of this location. We dined at the 8th Street location. From the moment we walked through the door we... More
