This restaurant, located in what appeared to be a rather sketchy, industrial section of town, is charming and a little quirky, the food was delicious, and the service was friendly. I was greeted and seated by a hostess wearing an embroidered blouse and long skirt, a typical look from the Zapata era. The restaurant is decorated with all kinds of... More

Had great expectations but our server let us down. The hostest was excellent. Chips and salsa with beans was excellent and delivered just after we sat down. Bussing was excellent too. Took a bit for the server to take our drink order and maybe 10 minutes to get two common margaritas. Ordered fundito then but took 15 minutes for that... More

My friend told me about Zupas and I've eaten there 3 times in 3 weeks!! DELICIOUS !!! I recommend that everyone try it!!! I love that they let you sample the soups so you can taste before you buy! The Cuban sandwich minus the pickles is fantastic! !

We were looking for a good place to eat while at a race and found good reviews on tripadvisor so we tried it. We were here for a couple of days and made sure we went to dinner there again before we left back for California because we liked it and the people so much.

I found the restaurant on TripAdvisor and was already surprised about the good reviews. When we are arrived on Friday at 12:00 for lunch we had to even wait for 10 mins to get a table. The service was really nice and the staff very friendly. The guacamole was even prepared directly at the desk and the mains were as... More

I've been here a few times and I've always been impressed by the great food. All dinner meals are well sized (and not just full of rice and beans). Margaritas are also good. The atmosphere is cozy and you can often hear some live music, though I wish the dining area was slightly bigger. It can get crowded early and... More

When near North Las Vegas, Viva Zapatas is a great bet for a terrific Mexican dinner. Great food and equally good service.

Seated right away, staff was very accommodating. Water glasses stayed full without asking. Food served quickly and delicious. I had a chicken taco salad, very generous with the chicken, great flavor. Atmosphere was fun, live music that did not overpower the conversation but added to the aumbence of the restaurant

Went there with my sister's family, including a very impatient 1-1/2 year old. We were told the wait was going to be a half an hour. When we mentioned the baby, they scrambled to make special accommodations for us and we got seated right away. Live music was entertaining and food was great! Would definitely go there again.
