We were driving thru Cody - stopped in on our 1st nite here. Rather warm in the dining area. Were given 1 chips & salsa & was never asked if we wanted more as we waited a long time (20+) minutes for our entrees. Service...More

After a busy day running errands and squeezing in some quality time outdoors, we (my wife and I) headed for Zapata's on Sheridan Ave last night. To characterize our dining experience in two words, it would be "absolute delight". We appreciate a restaurant with a...More

This restaurant had the best salsa I've ever had but only the first bowl is free. They sell pints of it for $5.99 so maybe they just want you to buy it after the first free bowl. In Texas, most places have unlimited salsa so...More

So glad you enjoyed your meal at Zapata's. And yes unfortunately we do have to charge on salsa refills because it is quite expensive to make. Thank you for the nice review. Connie Owner

This was pretty good Mexican food. If you bring the kids they have cheeseburgers & chicken tenders for the picky eaters. Queso was delish & you can sit outside.

We really enjoyed our meal. The kids had chimichangas and I had an enchilada that was very good, but to start off our meal - the CHIPS and SALSA were the huge hit of the day. Great service and food.

The service was very slow the night we went. The food was okay. Our food was not very hot. I think we must have gone on an off night from what I read with the reviews.More

So sorry that the service was a bit slow. We are very busy this time of year, that and the fact that we make everything at time of the order. Nothing is premade. I will check into as way the food wasn't very hot. Thanks...More
