the food here is to die for! definitely authentic Mexican cuisine. My favorite is the poblano soup. The chicken tacos are huge and other meals are in healthy size portions. I've tried the rice, beans and fajitas, all were packed with flavor, very tasty. the staff are very friendly and inviting. This place is located in a quaint area with several romantic spots to sit and talk or take a walk at night after dinner. The feel is of a small Mexican village. zapatas serves alcoholic beverages and Mexican inspired desserts. this place is great for an evening out or a nice lunch with the family.

Once you have a molcajete filled with chicken, shrimp, steak, cactus, cheese, onions, tomatoes, and salsa verde, you will have a special place in your heart (and stomach) for Zapata!

The tequila and mezcal options are amazing and delicious. The tequilas are infused in-house and make for wonderful cocktails. I love the tamarind margarita! There are also very high-end tequilas that are meant to be sipped like a fine whiskey.

The food is delicious and the drinks are perfect!

We went to this restaurant last weekend - we asked the maitre d' if their beans were vegetarian and she said "yes" and sat us down. We saw one "veg" dish on their menu, and we decided to ask if we could have any of the other dishes made vegetarian. The waiter who served us was "Paleo" and he said "all our dishes are made with chicken stock". We said "what about the one that is marked "vegetarian?" and he confirmed that even that one had chicken stock in the sauce! So we got up and left - saying to the Maitre D' In this day and age you should at least have something on the menu for vegetarians/vegans/paleos. A bit disheartening to see that they marked a dish "vegetarian" but it is not really vegetarian! I would never go back to this restaurant!

Went for lunch. The food was great. I had a lamb taco and the thursday special. It was great. The staff was very attentive and the food even better. I'll definitely be back for dinner so I can try the tequila.

We really enjoyed our meal at this restaurant, in historic Norcross. It's acute small downtown area to visit anyway, but the menu here was a great treat. Different choices than typical Tex mex. we had a grilled cheese app, and the hand made Paloma drink was very good. Definitely a good choice for a different Mexican meal!
