Zapata's Mexican Restaurant - University
Always good service and good food. And they are taking good COVID-19 precautions.
Huge portions of delicious, fresh made food in a relaxed environment. I'll be returning on my next visit to Charlotte.
Mexican food and the feeling here is excellent. Service is always super even when they have a full house. Service is typically good. This place has a great design.
While that atmosphere was nice and our waitress was awesome, the food wasn't great. I ordered shrimp tacos. The shrimp was breaded which wouldn't have been so bad if the pieces of shrimp were larger. It seemed liked there was more breading than meat. The beans were good, but some of the rice was hard and stuck together. I have definitely had better Mexican food. I was very disappointed. I do not plan to return to this establishment.
The food was decent. Expected spicy for a Mexican restaurant but was not. The ambience made it special. The music was a bit loud. But overall a nice restaurant.
