Zapata's Mexican Restaurant Collinsville IL



Hi Neighbors!

Stopped by Zapata's Mexican Restaurant in Collinsville, Illinois over the weekend and as one who greatly enjoys, but can be critical of, Mexican food, I was very impressed!  Not sure what to expect I had asked a few customers who were leaving the business and inquired as to how the food was.  All responses were positive so we went inside to check out their lunch buffet.  



On the tables before us were tortilla shells, both hard and soft, ground beef, chicken, strips of steak, chips, salsa and Queso (cheese sauce), as well as beans and rice, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, and a few other goodies.  The food was unbelievable and the price - only 8.99 a person, well worth the price.  Genuine Mexican food, all was first rate, the service was great.  Our waiter did an excellent job of checking on us without being constantly at our table.  He was peasant and appeared to enjoy his job.



Literally nothing could have been better about the meal and I say that sincerely.  I even joked with the family that perhaps we should look for a home to purchase in the area so we could frequent Zapata's on a regular basis.  That may not be a reality, but rest assured, anytime I am traveling through Collinsville, I need look no further than Zapata's for a superb meal at a great price!  And after three plates of food and many many visits to Mexican restaurants over the years, I certainly consider myself a reliable judge of Mexican food!



So if you are ever passing through Collinsville, IL and need somewhere to eat, try Zapata's!  I think you will come away satisfied.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
