My husband and I went to Zapata for lunch on a Saturday and had planned on using our groupon deal since they only offer the dinner menu on Saturdays. We arrived around 12:30 and when we told our waiter about our groupon he said we could only use it for dinner, even though they were only serving from the dinner menu. I was a little disappointed, but we were there and decided to give it a try.
We ordered the Queso Morelos for an appetizer, ENCHILADAS de MOLE, and Al Pastor taco dinner and a couple of beers. The queso morelos was amazing. I've never had anything like this and will try now to recreate it in my house it was sooo good. The mole was ok (my husband is from Mexico and loves Mole), and the tacos were great. The beer was cold. Our waiter was attentive.
I even ordered a spicy mezcal margarita that was amazing.
The only thing that is holding me off from giving this place 5 stars, is that 15 minutes after we arrived another couple came in wanting to use the groupon and the staff let them. There needs to be some consistency with this. It's bad business to tell one guest no and another yes. And if you are serving the dinner menu then you should be prepared to let guests use a dinner certificate. They were not busy when we arrived, nor when we left.
I would return, just not to use a groupon deal.
