Great food and fast friendly service. Would recommend it to anyone. We have been there lots of times and always get the same friendly fast service. Great breakfast...it's my favorite, but the whole menu is great.

We had a Saturday morning family breakfast at Zamora's. They have an extensive menu of breakfast plates and tacos. The prices are very reasonable. The wait staff was attentive and kept our coffee cups filled. Easy to find location.

Zamora's Restaurant is good but a little overpriced for typical Mexican food. If you're dining on a budget or don't eat too much, definitely share the Panchos as they are way more than enough food for two. The Hamburger Baskets, though simple, were good for the kids as they came with fries. If the prices were better we'd definitely go... More

We love Zamora's Restaurant. Recently a BBQ Brisket plate has been added to the menu on Fridays and it is amazing. Best brisket around. Way better than Rudy's or the other bbq restaurants around here. I hope it becomes a regular menu item.

Menudo is to die for. Barbacoa was a little grease, but then again all barbacoa is. Just patted it down with a napkin to absorb a little of the grease and it was good to go. One thing was the salsas, they need to make better salsas.

On weekdays they have good breakfast deals on basic eggs with meat, potatoes, and beans, served with tortillas. Service is prompt and breakfast is filling.

Breakfast is absolutely amazing. All of us love to half our morning meal on weekends here. Great atmosphere, friendly service and great food. Packed most mornings, but that only means it's good.

5 of my friends/family and I met at the reataruant for lunch. I have been at this location about 12,times and I have never been disappointed. I have been there mainly for breakfast, but lunch is served as great as breakfast.

I've been going here since it was Ticos. Honestly I haven't found a better place for Botanas and i've had them in a lot of places. I'll give my regular criticism about Tex-Mex places, they're all the same. I enjoy Tex-Mex once in a while and Zamora's does it well but Tex-Mex just doesn't wow me. The service was great... More

Several friends went with us to lunch. We each ordered a different dish and then shared bits with the others. Everything was great and large servings.
