The first time we ate here, it was a bit of a test because the menu was not "normal" tex-mex. Good, different, but not great. Service was poor, forgetful. Although it was raised a bit by the Mgr's intervention. We decided to try it again. This time we found a familiar menu with very good food. Also, service was attentive and friendly.

Had nice outside location
Had nice outside location for party of 8. Very good food, however service was slow. Manager adressed service issue with a discount on bill.

We went for the first time. We sat outside, waited several minutes before our waiter showed, but after he did he was very good. Food was extremely good. Well priced for what you get. I was surprised I ate everything on my plate and also grabbed some off my son's plate. Will be going back soon.

Not the typical Mexican fare
Food is unusual. Only issue was the room we were seated in had two doors leading to patio. As wait staff used the doors, loud banging would ensue. Not really conducive to a pleasant dinner.

Good food good service
Food was very good. I had the seafood enchilada. It had a little spice but not to bad. Fernado was attentive. Wife had a lunch special that we didn't realize was wrong until half way through. They apologized and asked if they could correct it. All in all would go back.guacamole was very good also.

Girls night out
I was looking for a fun place with good food and outdoor seating to take my sister when she was in town. Zapatista had it all! The food was outstanding and the staff was very friendly. There was tons of outdoor seating and the vibe was casual and cool!

We had never been here before. What a great surprise! Wonderful service! Our server was very knowledgeable about menu & 3 managers came to check on us to see how we liked everything. The food was AMAZING. I like that we could tailor our sauce selection to our preferred level of spicy. The sangria was delicious as well. We will definitely be back and I'm bringing my parents next time!

We sat so we could easily see the kitchen and loved watching the prep of our food.

Good...but not so good
The food was outstanding, but the service is terrible. It took us over 30 minutes just to get a glass of water. Everything took a really long time, and the place wasn't very crowded! Hire more staff, as only a couple servers handled the entire outdoor patio! Also, it would've been nice to have a little latin music playing vs. the soft rock or whatever it was that was vaguely heard playing on the patio. I think better music would liven up the place.

Not your ordinary Mexican!
Other than having to wait for the hostess for 10 minutes the service was exceptional. very busy,crowded, noisy on Saturday night- music outside for fun! I had fish tacos, my spouse had the chicken stuffed pablanos- both very good. Very interesting Mexican drink menu and ample servings from the bar. Salsa is smokey and tasty as well. We will go back perhaps on a quieter night.

Slow service, friendly waiter, great food. Sauces are a bit spicey for me but enjoyed a new twist on an old theme.

We love that they have a guacamole of the day where they use different fruits instead of tomatoes. Haven't had one we didn't like!

Lunch with my boy!
My boy is an adult, but what mom doesn't still think of their son as my boy?
We met at Zapatista's because of its' easy access to the tollroad. We thought the menu was great offering a lot of choices for both lunch or dinner. We enjoyed the delicious, fresh made guacamole very much. We each had a different entree and were quite pleased with the subtle flavors.
We'll each come again. He will probably stop in at night with friends. Me, I am more of a lunch person!

Best Mexican Restaurant!
Not only is the restaurant beautiful and in a great location, the food is awesome! Everyone was very happy including my picky eater child. The service was good and they had the table waiting for us with water since we made a reservation. I had chicken fajitas which was SO good. My husband was impressed with his sea food enchiladas. The best tings is that the restaurant is not overpriced,

The tacos al pastor, although
The tacos al pastor, although tasty, could've had more meat on them. Many at our table of 9 ordered them and felt the same way.

We visited early on a Sunday
We visited early on a Sunday evening so service was not a problem. The menu has some very unique, but authentic-looking choices and my special order requests were met without hesitation. Must go back to try more!

The food was excellence and so was our servers. They are very attentive to you and what you ordered. Never once did we have to summon a waitstaff to get anything. Would definitively go again.

Friday night out
Wait staff and mgmt friendly. Food was very good. Atmosphere good. For the price which was expensive for Mexican (drinks were high), we were disappointed that we were rushed. We told the server a couple of times that we were not in a rush, but the food came out before we had a chance to enjoy our appetizer and drinks. I looked at my watch and we had been there less than an hour and the server was cleaning off out table. They were not that busy. No one was waiting for a table.

Get the fajitas!
We ordered the guacamole, which is made fresh to order. Was very tasty. Highly recommend. My wife ordered the steak burrito an felt it was something she could have ordered at Chipotle. Now the fajitas...first get the steak. It is served with the usual sides: rice, beans, lettuce, pico de gallo, and sour cream. You would think that the fajitas come on a sizzling platter, but you would be wrong. It is served in a giant molacajete (lava rock). Huge strips of skirt steak are peeking out. There are onions and a sauce that is topped with cheese as well. The lava rock heats all of these and they blend together perfectly. This are the best fajitas I have ever had. In fact when we return we will get the steak fajitas for two.
