Food was ok, service was good. I was a little disappointed. It was once a really great place. They used to make fresh guacamole at the table, and you'd pick the ingredients. Too bad.

This is one of the few places on Long Island that serves good Mexican food. Great quality and decent prices.

We decided to forego our usual Friday dining out experience and try something different-we love Mexican food and are always searching for a good replacement for our South Florida favorites.....since moving to LI we haven't been able to find great Mexican food....Zapata's is no exception. Parking was the first bad experience...there is none. The place was crowded that seemed like... More

The basic, very plain interior is neat and clean. The food is like being invited to a family meal in Mexico. When many diners are Spanish speaking it suggests they are enjoying home cooking also.

The food was very greasy. The place was small (hardly any parking), the menu had small print and was hard to read. The food was mediocre. For almost the same price, you can go to Besitos and get far fresher, quality food and a much nicer atmosphere. I was disappointed!

The restaurant had only 3 other table full among the 15 tables in the dining area. We were giving menus when seated and 5 min later a girl brought 2 glasses of water and chips and... More

The service was excellent. The food was okay, but overpriced for what it was. Had a good time, but got fleeced on the cost, especially the drinks. Not bad, but I've also had much better Mexican food. The staff itself was friendly, prompt and outstanding.

This site & one other just had 1 lonely review so I'm here to contribute another. We had been worried about trying this place however, we were pleasantly surprised & impressed with the service, food & drinks and plan to be repeat customers. Very tasty chicken enchilada, food was served very fresh. Although we are Hispanic, we are not Mexican... More
