Great authentic food! We have dined here many times and would go back! Awesome - friendly staff. Plenty of seating and great for the whole family. Open late and offer carry outs. Located near the aquarium downtown - easy access! Viva Mexico!

We come here every time we go to Chicago. Our favorites are the Fajitas! They are SO flavorful, and come served in a cool Lava Bowl! Also the Margaritas are spectacular!!! Can't wait to visit this restaurant soon!

I am a vegetarian, so my review may not apply to non-vegetarians. I did not find many meatless options. I ended up having a cheese enchilda which was just okay. I do recommend there specialty Sangria's and there was a good atmosphere.

Zapatista has brunch!...it is a great place for a reasonably priced Sunday brunch without the normal wait in Chicago. The Mexican twist on eggs and french toast is great.

This was my second time at Zapatista, the first being more than five years ago. I never felt like going back, as I remember the food being passable but kind of dry. I remember the price point being too high for the quality received. Not...More

We took our daughter and some friends to celebrate her birthday. Recommend the margaritas, they have a tequila menu that is amazing. Food is good. Definitely order the queso fundito - a cauldron of bubbling cheese and chorizo with lots of nacho chips.

South Loop
This downtown neighborhood offers a variety of
activities ranging from cultural to sporting. If you
happen to visit during football season, you may bump
into a boisterous few fans on their way to a Bears
game on the southernmost tip of South Loop. On the
flip side, Museum Campus offers cultural and
educational experiences in its planetarium, museum and
aquarium, all situated along the lakefront. Grant Park
