We chose this restaurant partly because it was within walking distance of our hotel. We were not disappointed. The decor is attractive and the staff does a good job. The hostess kept us informed about the status of our table and the server was friendly...More

My husband and I stopped here for lunch one afternoon. The salsa was great! Food was okay. We are from the South and this was very different than the Mexican food we are acclimated to. I liked the interesting choices on the menu though.

We recently had an excellent meal at this wonderful restaurant. Great salsa! Loved the beans and rice served with the meals. Beans were whole, not refried which was different ( and great!). Would eat here again next time we are in Cody!

Quality well above the cheap, so-called "authentic" Mexican restaurants that are everywhere. This restaurant has a theme and does not rely on cheese, shredded lettuce, and ground beef. Lunchtime was not busy but if going for dinner, get there early to get a table.

Enjoyed our first meal in Cody at Zapata's! Festively decorated, and pleasant staff. Wonderful margueritas and salsa. Lunch portions are huge. Enjoyed eating on the patio admiring downtown and watching the travelers. A must stop for Mexican!

Small eatery with wonderful service. I believe owned and run by a family. Located in the middle of town where all the shops are. A great area to take a stroll in.

We were at Zapata's two years ago and thought it was one of the finest Mexican places we have ever been in. It still is. Chili Verde and fish tacos were delicious. The salsa and chips were also delicious and the Mexican Corn was fabulous....More
