“Nice Lunch”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

We love Mexican food!!! Zapata's food was wonderful. We had a nice lunch with all the trimmings, and enjoyed looking out on the street and people-watch at the same time. Like in so many other establishments in the Cody area, people were friendly and forthcoming. Had it not been for just one bad experience that followed our stay at the Red Pole Ranch, our trip to the West during the government shut-down would have been 100 percent perfect!

“good home food”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

We enjoyed a nice lunch and it was good New Mexican food. The prices were not out of line and we enjoyed kidding the waitress along with the manager - both made our time there a great relaxing time.

“Great New Mexican Food”
Reviewed 21 March 2014

I have dined at Zapata's many times and never had a bad meal. Everything is made fresh daily. Really like beans and rice. Usually get the fish tacos or the spinach enchiladas with the awesome sour cream sauce. Great margaritas and some of the best chips and salsa this far north I have had. They also have a deck for watching what goes by on main street. Check it out!

“Great Mexican Food”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

Lots of Mexican restaurants in and around Cody. None come close to this one. Excellent food, great service, very pleasant atmosphere. The salsa and nacho chips were really good. Tried the Jalapeno Margarita and it also was very good.

“Not so good!”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

The food is so so and serving sizes were about average. Good location, right on main street but atmosphere is a little on the chinch side. Pricing was average.

Sorry you didn't enjoy your visit to Zapata's. I was surprised that you thought my portions were small. I will tell you that most of the people that come into Zapata's always tell me my portions are way to large. Maybe you just a big eater. If you say the food is so so that just tells me you don't know much about Mexican food. About 90% of my reviews are positive plus. I do keep a guest log in book at the front dest if you care to come in and read the reviews. You might also be interested to know that I have numerous request to open a Zapata's in New Mexico, California , Arizona just to mention a few. Again sorry you were not happy.
