$39 - Zapatista: Top 10 Mexican Dining for 2 w/Margaritas

Sold out - This deal was published October 31, 2012 and sold out November 10, 2012.
By Travelzoo Staff
Gayot praises Zapatista as an "innovative, boisterous" spot that's among its Top 10 Mexican Restaurants in Chicago, and Zagat touts the "upscale approach" at work in the "colorfully rustic" dining room. With this deal, two can dine on an appetizer sampler, any two entrees on the menu and margaritas for $39, regularly up to $78.

Why we love it

  • Zapatista is one of the Top 10 Mexican Restaurants in Chicago (Gayot.com)
  • Includes a custom appetizer sampler, any entree on the menu and margaritas for less than $20 per person
  • The kitchen makes corn tortillas from scratch daily
  • Ingredients are sourced from independent farms in Mexico whenever possible

Steak was delicious Lamb tacos - bland. Chili rellanos - mushy. Tacos on lettuce leaves were wonderful. Medium guacamole needed salt and lime

The atmosphere and margaritas were great.

The food was not very good and I had called and made reservations 2 weeks before and when I arrived at Zapatista's they said they didn't have any reservation for me.

The food and atmosphere

Great dining experience and nice ambiance

The margaritas were top notch. Food was for the most part good. Some aspects were a little too heavy/hearty from what I expected.

Ambiance can get very loud especially when seated in a room with large groups.

The appetizer platter was excellent

The waiter and hostess were very nice
