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.
