Chicken and beef fajitas were excellent. Baked queso definitely good as well. Baked apple pie with Carmel sauce and ice cream was good - not great. Service was fast and friendly. Tea glasses are a little small. Would definitely go back if in the area...More

Zapata's is one of our "go to" places in Texarkana. Zapata's has the best staff in Texarkana. The menu is Tex-Mex but the ribs and the burgers are worth trying. At lunch, try the grilled fish.

The best margaritas I've ever had! Everything on the menu that I have tried was so good. My favorite dish is their carne asada!

Zapata's offers first rate Mexican food. Their soups are great, their entrees good and salsa just right. They are in the old downtown, which is picturesque. The service is great and decor very good. Great atmosphere.
