Zapata's Mexican Restaurant - University
- Open Now
I was looking for a place to grab a quick bite while I finished editing a video. Stopped by here and ordered a margarita which happened to be on special for only $5! And a Chicken taco which was fresh and awesome. There was a bit of a mix up with me only wanting just one taco because I really just like to eat something with my drink while finishing up my work & the waitress was awesome!!! She understood and fixed the issue right away. The food was great, the view is incredible outside and the service good, clean establishment.
The restaurant is situated near the Boardwalk so the patio has seating with a nice view. The hospitality was great from all the staff. Margaritas were delicious, and the food was supreme. My only regret is that I was too full to finish my meal!
Work ran super late one day, & we had no dinner at home - turns out, this place is open LATE. We got fantastic service, the food & atmosphere reminded me of some of the best Mexican restaurants I've been to in Arizona. Anyhoo, so happy this place is here & is open late & has affordable good food. Two big thumbs up!
A group of about 14 ladies met here for dinner. We had one waitress and she was fabulous. She took care of our table better than a team of servers. The strawberry margarita and the crystal ball were so good. I had birria tacos. They werent as good as some Ive had in the past but they were delicious. We didnt know there would be entertainment. Im guessing it was karaoke night. We had such a great time. I would definitely recommend this spot on a Friday night with friends. If Im ever in town again I will be returning.
I have zero clue why I have never been here before now! Clearly I have been missing out! I wanted some birria tacos and decided to try theirs out for lunch. Honestly probably the best ones Ive had thus far! And their broth actually had chunks of meat in it, first time Ive had that happen and my God was it amazing! And I NEVER eat refried beans yet I found myself eating theirs lol. Everything seriously was delicious. Staff was friendly, place was very clean and has a nice decor. And the fried cheesecake was to die for. I will most certainly be back! Going to have to go for dinner one day and get a margarita.
