This is a basically good Mexican restaurant but not the greatest. I enjoyed my meal here and the service was excellent but the food was just a bit lackluster. It could be that my dining companion made better choices--she was very complimentary.

Like going to grandmas to eat. She is teaching me how to order what I like. Love it all. Crazy how many times we drove by without noticing.

I just had a taste of Zapata for the first time about 2 weeks ago and left with mixed feelings about it. My wife and kid liked their tacos; I made the mistake of ordering carnitas with rice and beans instead of sticking to the Mexican side of the menu. I can tell you is not the best looking or... More

If you’re looking for a large-chain-restaurant-style of Mexican food and ambience, this is not your place. But if you’re looking for well-prepared, delicious, quality, inexpensive Mexican food as you like it, you’ll find it here. Zapata is a small, clean, unassuming restaurant on the main drive through Lake Worth (Dixie Highway), not far off the Interstate (I-95 exit east at... More

Family style restaurant. Lowest prices. Dinner for three typically runs us about $35. The food is very authentic. We go there when we are not in the mood to cook, and don't want to spend a bunch of money on dinner out. The enchilatas are my favorite. The chili reanos are also awesome. The sope, tacos and steaks are also... More

This full-service Mexican restaurant, conveniently right on the edge of downtown Lake Worth, Zapata's has a wonderful menu of authentic food, from fresh salsa to luscious menudo. Spacious, cheerful, and clean, with very friendly service, this would be a great place for a family meal or a party of friends. They serve beer and wine. They make their own tortillas.... More
