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

Sold out - This deal was published August 15, 2013 and sold out August 30, 2013.
By Travelzoo Staff
Gayot calls Zapatista one of the Top 10 Chicago Mexican restaurants, praising this "creative cantina" as an "innovative [and] boisterous" spot.

Why we love it

  • Good at all three locations including the new Naperville spot
  • Perfect for end-of-summer patio dining
  • "Generous portions and great margaritas" -- a recent Travelzoo visitor
  • A "bustling cantina...with south-of-the-border standbys" (Chicago Magazine)

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 waiter and hostess were very nice
