My fiancé, son and I went here and it was excellent service. The food was fresh, fast and delicious. One of the best restaurants in Charlotte!
I am a student at UNCC, so of course this restaurant is nearby. I have been frequenting this place for the past 3 years and have never had a bad experience. I absolutely love sitting on the upper balcony type area off the second floor, but when cold, I prefer the bottom level where the bar is. Came here once or twice and watched their karaoke night...very funny and entertaining. Overall, authentic mexican food with the NICEST people. They also offer a discount with your student id!
I have been there at lunch and dinner and find this place to be only average in their execution. What you read on the menus and what you get are very different. The wait staff on once occasion was very rude.
If you like sub-standard food this place is for you.
place had great food. We went there for a work lunch thing one day. Great and affordable lunch prices. The food is authentic mexican.
Huge servings for the $$. Quite noisy, so perfect if your kids are a bit loud. Go on Sunday if you have kids under twelve -- it's free for them off the kids menu with a paying adult. Wonderful decour. Clean. Lots of seating, so not a big wait. Sometimes the wait for food can be long, so bring stuff for kids to do. The wait staff accomodated our request for non-alcoholic margauritas for the kids. Wonderful place.
This PLACE IS HORRIBLE.Not even worth trying
Food is aweful and service is bad too.
They took more tip out of my credit card then what I paid.
Do not go to this place ever.
This is the best damn food north of the border! Zapata's is truly the only place to go for mexican and I am an ethnic food fanatic and critic. Most mexican restaurants serve the typical cheap canned beans, dry rice, and mushy enchilada - Zapata's is nothing like that! Everything is fresh. I recommend the Arroz Con Pollo or Tortilla soup. Enjoy the mariachi band at your table while you dine too. There is also another location north of Charlotte in Cornelius.
This is one the best mexican resturants that i have been to so far. The decor is fun and festive and you leave with money in your pocket and a delicious meal in your stomach. I recommend this place to all my friends.
I CANNOT EVEN TELL YOU HOW AWESOME THIS PLACE WAS......IT WAS WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!!!!!!! THE CHIPS ARE AWESOME AND HOT AND THE BEST PICO DE GALLO I HAVE EVER HAD IN MY LIFE. THE FOOD PORTIONS ARE ENORMOUS. YOU MUST TRY THIS PLACE!!!!!!!!!!
