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

Great service, great food, great atmosphere! Lots of choices on the menu. I've tried various entrees and have never been disappointed. The queso is a staple everytime I dine there. Prices are reasonable and kids eat free on Sundays.

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.\r

Pros: Close to my house.

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

I have tried several local Mexican restaurants in the area and was not impressed with Zapats. The service is fast and friendly, but the food is not that great. I have gone a few times because I thought maybe I just picked something that I didn't like, but I neve found anything I did like. Then, they were closed down for a period of time and reopened. I tried it again, thinking maybe new ownership, but still not that good. I have not been back ever since.

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 -
