The Scene
Zapata's glass storefront gives way to a warm, sensuous room with vibrantly painted walls and evocative, jazzy artwork from the owner's private collection. The crowd is a mix of families, local office workers and urban… Read Full Editorial

My Review by jackiet659802440 via Citysearch on 12/2/2012

Worst service ever!! I work in the restaurant business and have Never been treated so poorly!! Marrisa and Yuri need to understand Customers pay your bills therefore You should treat them with kindness!! Both girls had the busboy wait on…

Maybe the cook (whom was great) went south, but now... nah. by fdoamercia via Citysearch on 5/13/2012

Zapata has dropped a notch in the last 12 months, maybe the cook went back to Mexico, really! The Sopa Azteca was mediocre, at best it would be a good tomato based soup. Then the Chile Relleno was undercooked making the poblano chile…

Probably the most authentic Mexican food in Atlanta by SQL11 via Citysearch on 7/10/2011

This small but charming restaurant in historic Norcross serves up some of the freshest, unique and authentic Mexican food you will ever get in Atlanta. The complementary chips and salsa are delicious, fresh and thoroughly addictive. The…

The BEST Mexican food EVER by kikhan via Citysearch on 4/24/2010

I had always thought that a quesadilla was a quesadilla; and that you couldn't do anything to make a quesadilla extraordinary. Well, I stand corrected and duly humbled. The Picadillo Quesadilla at Zapata is simply amazing. And the…

Best Mexican Food ever! by kikhan via Citysearch on 4/24/2010

When I see that even a restaurant like this gets some negative reviews, I begin to lose all hope for the human race. Really, the food here is absolutely fantastic. I had always thought that a quesadilla was a quesadilla; and that you…

Amazing Food! by AMR1970 via Citysearch on 10/18/2009

So, my husband and I went last night to Zapata in downtown Norcross. This ws our first time in the new location. What struck me as soon as we walked in was that the decor had gone down. On P'tree Pkwy they had great little tables,…

Not as good as it was by larkstung via Citysearch on 9/23/2009

First - ordered 2 top shelf margaritas with two different types of tequila. From our table, I saw the waiter (I don't think he was a bartender) fill two glasses 90% full with some sort of mixer and then top it off with one of the tequilas.…

Great venue for rehearsal dinner by Ben H via Citysearch on 9/7/2009

We had our rehearsal dinner last month at Zapata in downtown Norcross and the food/ atmosphere was exceptional! I would highly recommend using it for parties of 70 or less, great value for your dollar at this upscale authentic Mexican gem.…

My Favorite by Christiana via Citysearch on 5/23/2009

This is hands down my favorite Mexican restaurant in the Atlanta area. Delicious and authentic. It is hard to find great mole and they have the best in my opinion.

Real Food...Really Mexican by Mersycruz via Citysearch on 1/22/2009

I really like Zapata. I usually take out lunch due to my hectic schedule but I have dined there for lunch and dinner and have always had a good experience. The pomegranate margaritas are delicioso!!\r The prices are good and the food is…

Don't eat here if it takes more than an hour by Eatingout49 via Citysearch on 11/14/2008

I just had lunch at Zapata and was asked to leave after an hour and 10 minutes because they wanted to give the table to people waiting. I understand turning tables, but interrupting my conversation with a friend was ridiculous. I will…

My favorite restaurant in Atlanta area by ATLSteve via Citysearch on 9/28/2008

Zapata is a breath of fresh air -- this is REAL mexican food. Don't expect Taco Bell or Fronterra-like options here. I have tried nearly everything on the menu and I like the Crepas Poblanas the most. \r \r Bonus: Margaritas are great…

it will have been the best restaurant ever. the margaritas WILL be delicious. by ryan6710 via Citysearch on 9/20/2008

i will have walked into zapatas with great anticipation and of course hunger. the service will have been very prompt and corteous. our table will be no where near the kitchen door, it will not wobble and it won't be even the slightest bit…

Most Horrible Mexican Ever!!! by ashman77 via Citysearch on 5/19/2008

My wife and I decided to try Zapata by reading the good reviews here. Needless to say it was the worst Mexican food we had ever had. And we love our Mexican food. I dont consider the food here authentic, however confused is something that…

I LOVE THIS PLACE! by Haileyjm via Citysearch on 4/2/2008

This is authentic wonderful Mexican food. Everything I have eaten has been delicious and though the prices are a little higher, it's worth it! Everyone I have taken there has agreed that it's amazing, even my brother the Mexican Food Snob…

interesting mexican food by piedone via Citysearch on 3/25/2008

This place is trying to offer a gourmet type experience in mexican cuisine. We went on a Sunday and the place was not full at all. It has a pleasant interior and nice staff. The food was OK. I went for the mole, which was good but not…

Let Me Teach You Some Economics by rdhanson via Citysearch on 2/18/2008

Restaurants are not charitable organizations. So if the prices at Zapata are the same as your local chain, then their costs are probably the same. You can either get lots of average food for a price, or less quantity of a more expensive…

Deep & Varied Menu - Delicious! by fastlane28a via Citysearch on 2/15/2008

Wow - what a find! Zapata is many steps above the avarage Mexican restaurant. The menu is Gourmet, Texas margarita one of the best, beautiful 'art gallery' feel to the space, couteous staff, & super clean restrooms. We look forward to…

Good Prices, Does Not Equal Good Food! Salsa & Chips Might Help! by jaymaygm via Citysearch on 1/23/2007

I was in the Norcross area the other day, and I remember reading good reviews for Zapata. I didn't care if it was in a strip-center. or they didn't serve salsa and chips. The place was packed at lunch time, so in I went. Well, if you…

Will never eat there again! by slimdaddy via Citysearch on 12/12/2006

Yesterday I ate at Zapata for lunch. The atmosphere was good and the place looked nice. However, while I was eating chips and dip, I bit into a staple - a very unpleasant experience. So I quietly let the waiter know that the mangled…
