Viva Zapata was just a minute or 2 walk from where I used to live, so I've been there several times. Unlike some other Mexican retsaurants, Zapata is not all decked-out in what you'd think as "mexican" decorating; rather, it reminds you of an old cabin in the woods. Thus, it's a pretty dark place to eat. The food is excellent and prices OK. Portions are large, like other mexican restaurants. Of course, it also has a well-stocked bar as well!
