Ate an early lunch. Good food fresh and fast. Typical local dive with many of the locals eating lunch. Would go again for sure.

El Zarape is probably my favorite Mexican Food Restaurant in Bay City. The Food is quite tasty & they have a large selection on the menu.
The service is almost always GREAT! Prices are very reasonable & they do serve beer & margaritas!

They have been around for years and years and know how to cook Mexican food. I am there once a week--it is always the same quality, taste. Service, well, there are times they don't see you--so speak up and let them know you are there.

You know the wait staff are nice...enough. This is the restaurant that all the pillars of the community and the old money folks go. It has been around since before time. As with so many small town businesses the outside of the place, the grounds, the landscaping goes to pot. Inside is ok. Wait staff is ok. Food is ok. Everything is just ok. That's what 'we' can get by with. Nothing exceptional except we've been here a long time. It really gets old after a while. But if you want what's decent but not exceptional give them a visit.
