Oh how I love the small town Mexican restaurant's. El Zarape is a must go every time I am out near it. I'll be perfectly honest, the buffet is phenominal for hangovers. It's like a curative for the worst possible hangovers. The food is great and the margaritas are sweet delicious medicine for my hangover. The service here has always been good as well. Never have to wait too long or be hovered over. They are prompt with the drinks and the food is always delivered nice and hot. Oh, and FYI, the burritos are a good option if the buffet isn't up and running at the time you visit. PS- They have AMAZING salsa.
If your not into Mexican food.....don't worry! They have fantastic steaks and seafood and GREATsmiles!! Joe and Anna and the staff are very attentive to your needs. Cherry Cokes to Margaritas they have it covered and don't forget the Fried Ice Cream or Flan or Sopapia's for dessert!! Great place located on Rt. 251 in Mendota just before the north stop light on the west side. ENJOY!!
My family so enjoys coming to El Zarape! Joe and Anna are so welcoming. They are attentive to all of your favorite food and drink needs. I highly recommend this restaurant if you live or are visiting Mendota! ENJOY!! Sheree Schimmer

I think the thing this place has going for it is its limited selection--they may not make a huge variety of dishes, but what they do make, they make well. My favorites: crispy chicken, honey chicken, beef with peppers and onions, green beans, crab rangoon (the ones here are so light and creamy), and the simple seasoned potatoes. Really, though, I don't think you can go wrong with anything here; everything I've ever tried has been pretty tasty. Definitely a place I look forward to eating at.
OK staff.. Way too overpriced for what you get.. The drive to Peru might be worth it.
The best Chinese food I've had while living in the United states. The staff is super friendly.. my friends and I go so much they know our drink order ! Everything is fresh and hot. We are all addicted to the lo mien noodles, rice and green beans. Delicious !

Nicely remodeled family style restaurant with a huge menu. If they don't have it you don't want it. Breakfast served a all day long. I had the double breaded cheeseburger with fries and a cup of chicken soup. I was stuffed when I finished. I had to leave a few crispy meaty fries behind. My wife and mother-in-law both had omelette. One was a Denver and the other a Gyro. Both came with hash browns and choice of toast. They both very much enjoyed their entries and raved about how good the coffee. You get get your tummy full for under $10. Definitely worth the stop.
Stopped by while in the area and chose Zig's because of the Yelp reviews. Okay, the fried chicken was pretty good. Service was also top notch, however there really wasn't anyone else in the restaurant so good service is expected. Other items including burger, fries, and hash browns were average. The decor is what you would expect from local flair. Crazy cheap too.
Few times in live do you experiencr such a wonderful dining experience! First of all, the serve staff is super friendly, attentive, and helpful. Second of all, ask about the house special. The wonderful special is a beef patty, stuffed with cheddar cheese, then breaded and deep fried. Served with a cup of home made soup for under six bucks. I came here wth a friend on a Tuesday and came back on a Friday with another friend and my girlfriend. If you love dive restaurants and home cooked meals, you will not be disappointed.

This is the best pizza we have had in years, it is now our go to place for pizza. We would love to try other items on the menu but we love the pizza so much!! Service has always been great. Highly recommended!!!!
great food, great staff, great service. cleanest restaurant, nicest and only family friendly bar in Mendota Illinois.
My car went kaputt on a road trip and I ended up hanging out here for an afternoon. I had the wings and they were crispy and tossed with an excellent take on Buffalo sauce. The Caesar salad was good, the beer selection is decent, the place is clean and the service is friendly.
