We used to go here alot years ago. Food was great, service great.
We tried it again this past week.
The food was great, service was great.
I would suggest they do some upgrading to the restaurant... very dated and old.
Also the music was little too loud.

The food was burnt. Been going to Zapatas 27 years now and this was the worst ever. Server would not even do anything to make it better. Just asked if I would like to leave a note.

I have been trying to get to this restaurant for months, so when I final did go I was not disappointed. The food was amazing, the service was so friendly, I love the atmosphere and the price was just right. I will be going back and I know I won't have any trouble getting anyone to go with me as the 2 ladies I went with also loved this place as well.

Generous portions, good value and excellent service. The food is delicious. For those who follow a gluten free diet, Zappatas has lots of options and are very familiar with restrictions if you have Celiac Disease or a wheat allergy.

Beef in fajita was overcooked and relatively tasteless. The server seemed rather busy and so we had relatively long gaps in service. Volume of food seemed excessive. Two large tables near us resulted in a lot of noise.

Excellent service and consideration towards anyone with allergies to nuts. I will recommend them for the extra effort they put into their assistance

The food was great food and the service was excellent too. So many options to choose from and everything has a different flavour. Portions are large and sooooo yummy.

The restaurant is very dated. I don't think it has changed in 30 years. Margaritas tasted like they came from a mix and the food was heavy and greasy. Mexican restaurants have come a long way in recent years but this one is stuck in the early 90s. It's too because it's a great location

The food, as always, was very good What was not good, however, was that the restaurant was out of FOUR desserts on a very limited menu--and could not provide ANY of the speciality coffees listed in their menu. This cast a pall on what should have been--and was in the past--a memorable evening.

You can't beat Zapatas for good food, service & price. There was only one other couple there besides us which was strange. Our server was happy and really seemed to enjoy your job.

Zapata's is a mainstay in our rotation of dining establishments. Always good, hot and fresh. Server was fabulous - efficient but with a sense of humor. Great evening.
