Located in an old Applebees, Mi Zarapa tries to be an authentic Mexican eatery. The tables are brightly colored and Mexican themed bit you'll still feel you're at Applebees. You'll be given complementary fresh chips and salsa (bland) on arrival. Salsa arrives in a mini carafe - cute but unrealistic - ask for more. An offer to take your order... More

We occasionally visit for lunch when we want Mexican food in a quiet setting that's good for conversation. The food is good and relatively inexpensive for what you get. Any lunch special is a good choice. Service is always quick and friendly too.

The combination dinners for under $10 are a good value. I ordered the #29 dinner and enjoyed it. The free chips were average. The fresh salsa was very good (not too spicy). If you are staying at any of the three nearby Marriott hotels, this place is a good choice.

They serve decent Mexican food. a budget place. Loved their Californian burrito. A budget place, thought the staff wasn't that friendly, but that would not stop me from going back again. The place is ideal on the centerpoint parkway road and those staying at the marriot hotel close by,

I was looking forward to eating here once I read some of the reviews since I was on business travel alone. However I was disappointed in the bland flavor of the carne asada and beans. I felt as if it were seasoned for someone who is 80+ years old with no taste buds. The beans, which are usually an easy... More

Mi Zarape has definitely improved its games in recent years. They offer a variety for vegetarians like me. I ordered veggie fajitas. You get a substantial amount of food for a great price, and it's delicious. Only complaint: TOO SALTY.

I gauge the quality of most restaurants on whether I'm willing to drive more than 15 minutes to get there. There are few Mexican restaurants close to my house and I'm willing to drive 10 more miles to get to Mi Zarape than a few others.

Mi Zarape is a good spot with 4/5 star food, a good sized lunch menu and fair prices. I recommend this Mexican restaurant for any occasion. The only complaint is that the bathrooms are embarrassing with manual hand towels and soap that rarely work. Toilets are always broken or in bad shape. Have some pride and upgrade more than just...

Small local Mexican restaurant that is certainly worth checking out. We usually have four different between the two couples and everyone goes back again and again and the order seldom changes. We each have our favorite. That makes it an easy choice of where to go since we all know going in what we will probably order.

What more could you ask for? This place has good food good price and good service. I live near here and frequent it quite often. If you're looking for a quick and reasonably priced meal I would recommend it.
