Wanted to try something new with the husband while out running errands. We decided on zapatas based on reviews. We were happy we did! Service was so friendly and quick. Food was served piping hot. Set up: queso was a little watery, salsa was good, chips were fresh, salsa especial (spicer) was outstanding and served warm. Main dishes: served very... More

Saw this while actually looking for another restaurant and decided to stop in. Greeted by a very friendly young lady, and seated promptly. Ordered the steak fajitas and they arrived very quickly. Meat was so tender and very tasty as well. Salsa and queso that came with the chips was excellent as well. I will definitely go there next time... More

The food was alright for the price, but the service was subpar at best though. My chicken enchiladas were tough and the chicken tasted "fishy" if that makes any sense. My salsa and queso were never refilled and I wasn't offered a sopapilla or even given my bill.

We had supper here after the World QH show one evening. It was late but the food was excellent and a lot of it too.

This was down the street from my hotel so I tried it. It's not the worst Mexican I've ever had but not the best either. I had the chimichanga which was covered in chili which is something I've never encountered before. The chili was a little bland and the chimichanga was filled with a wonderful steak but so much cheese... More

We made a mistake when we turned into the parking lot for Zapata's Mexican Grill. I thought it was another restaurant down the road about 1/2 mile. I've never made a better mistake! I asked my server to bring me something good, that was spicy and non-dairy. I was presented with the mango habanero chicken. Oh-my-word! Such a delight!!! The... More

There are no shortage of Mexican restaurants in OKC and certainly no shortage around the airport and state fairgrounds. But without question Zapatas is one of the best - if not the best! The staff is great, the quality of food is excellent, and the prices are great for the portions you receive. The fresh tortillas and chips, along with... More

A Wonderful warm family restaurant with terrific food! Chili Rellenos were what I've dreamed of for years. Go, eat, you will be delighted.

There are much better Mexican food places than this. When we placed the order to go, the girl who answered the phone didn't speak any English so we had to wait 7 minutes for someone else to get on the phone. He spoke a little English but we had to tell him several times that we wanted TWO chicken enchilada... More

This is what I'd call a "hole in the wall" restaurant but COMPLETELY worth the find. The best Mexican food I've eaten since I was in Cabo. The waitstaff is very helpful explaining all the different dishes. Go outside the comfort zone and eat something other than tacos or fajitas. It is totally worth it! Nothing any of us had... More
