Overall fresh food - but lacking in flavor - huge hot sauce bar. Food served on metal trays with chips (no salsa) - reminded me of an overpriced Moe's. Had the steak burrito and beef taco - maybe I'm too conditioned to standard Mexican food...but...More

Service was fast, and prompt. Food was very good,fresh, and looked really good. Menu had everything we were looking for. Easy to find, debit and credit is accepted. Atmosphere was friendly with high spirits. Kid friendly!

We didn't think the food was anything special and then we both had some stomach issues after eating here. We have no intention to ever go back!

My wife and I went to Zapatas last night. The place was busy and we expected that it would be slow so we went into the bar and sat at one of the round tables. We waited about 10 minutes and no one came to...More

Portions were good and preparation was great. The staff was really accommodating. They can substitute most of the meat with spinach for vegetarians. Good evening out with family. I had vegetarian fajitas (got more then 50% of onion in :-( my vegetables) but the portions...More
