Zapatista – South Loop

Zapatista is an authentic Mexican restaurant in the Near South Loop. Made with the passion, heart & soul of Mexico, using the freshest of ingredients, the fare at Zapatista is a blend of regional Mexican dishes that are authentic, yet contemporary. The menu ranges from grilled chicken, pork, steak and seafood entrees with house made moles and salsas to burritos, tacos & enchiladas, plus the guacamole is made table-side just how you like it. The atmosphere
is romantic and rustic with a beautiful stone back bar which holds some of the finest tequilas available; not to mention, the specialty drink list which boasts a variety of unique recipes & a great beer & wine selection. The hand painted wood furniture is comfortable, the walls are rich in color and the photographs hung around the restaurant depict the life of a Zapatista. Choose to dine in the dining room, sit in the bar, or enjoy the long days of summer
at a table on the large outdoor sidewalk patio.

"First time diners, we enjoyed, probably the best part was the chips, their homemade salsa and their guacamole. Our dinners were good, not spectacular, did like the fact that we didn't have to order big dinners, but could order smaller plates. Very loud, not a place if your looking for a quiet romantic dinner. Would go back for sure."

"Love the restaurant and the food. However, the service was less than desirable. Our party of 9 were checked on once. Several request had to be made twice. Actually would have preferred not to give the standard 18% tip."

"One of my go to neighborhood places. Food was as good as ever. Nice selection of margaritas. But for 2nd time with same server was confirmed he is inattentive to detail. Put salt on margarita after specified no salt. Never checked back and had to hunt him down for check. Worse is the valet. The firm is working three locations with seemingly one person. The wait for pickup and drop off is totally unreal. Think maybe taking their niche in the area for granted."

"I made a reservation on line for 8pm on May 5th. I arrived at 7:35pm only to be told that they are atleast 45 minutes behind in seating. The hostesses are very confused and not very informative. I was told I was going to receive a text when my table was ready. My group stood at the bar waiting on the text. As of 9pm, no text had arrived. Fortunately, I was able to order some appetizers at the bar to hold us over. I finally decided to leave at 9:30pm without having dinner. I never did receive a text. I overheard several people standing at the hostess desk voicing their frustration and disappointment."

"The food and ambiance was good, but our server acted as if she'd never worked at a restaurant before. Our water glasses went empty for quite some time (on multiple occasions) and our food took quite a while to come out for a table of 2, while the table of 4 next to us all had their food before us (and ordered after us). Food was great though, so I'd still go back (and hope for a different server)"

"I have been dining at Zapatista for years and couldn't think of a better place to celebrate Cinco De Mayo. The food is consistently good as well as the service. I was able to get a reservation on the same day and it was crowded but we only had to wait 10 minutes to be seated. Loved the Steak Fajitas!"

"Cinco de Mayo was a complete disaster here! I had 7:30 reservations for two, yet we were not sat until nearly 8:30. There was no apology, no acknowledgement from the hostess or manager. I find this unacceptable. When we were finally seated I asked for the manager to stop by our table but they never did. Again, not ok. Food was good but did not make up for the poor service and organization."

"dinner is ok, but we always shoot for lunch, we love their lunch specials.
Margaritas are good, but if you order no salt, you'll get salt, oh well...

"I chose to go to Zapatista for my 30th birthday because the two previous times I was there it was so good. This time, however, it was not. The serving size of the appetizer was not as large as before, the waitress drink my $8 margarita before I was finished with it(I had food in my mouth so I couldn't stop her), and the drinks were not nearly as good as previous visits. I had been looking forward to it all week, I was very disappointed."
