Good Mexican restaurant. Since we are from the southwest and eat often at Mexican restaurants, we did not have high expectations for a Mexican Restaurant in Cody. We were really surprised. This place has authentic Green Chili (Chili Verde). If you like real Mexican food this is the place to go while in Cody.

Have been on the road since early June. Keep checking restaurants for real green chili, have been getting green tomato sauce(tomatillo). What a pleasant surprise to get excellent chili verde at Zapata's.
Will be going back again before leaving Cody.

Being from Florida , where no restaurant makes authentic Green Chili, my husband and I are always in search of this delicious New Mexican dish when we arrive in the West.
To our surprise... Zapata's in Cody Wyoming serves wonderful Chili Verde and Chili Rellenos ....made with Hatch Green Chilis.
Owner, Connie Mowlatt is a welcoming hostess and does most of the food preparation herself.
We can hardly wait until our next visit.

We were warned away from Mexican restaurants in Cody but a local sent us to Zapatas. The food was very good with a Santa Fe-type selection of margueritas. The only glitch was having to substitute sopapillas for tortillas with chili verde but the restaurant did this with a smile. A great change of pace from MEAT!
