El Zarape Mexican Restaurant Restaurant Review

: El Zarape is a longtime University Heights favorite for real-deal, easy-access Mexican food. This cozy walk-up offers an immense chalkboard full of Mexican cuisine options, including classic choices and unique dishes such as barbecued chicken burritos and scallop tacos. We especially recommend anything that is topped with the mole sauce. Enjoy a nice mahi mahi taco with a cold Negra Modelo or a burrito with carne asada. Vegetarians have plenty of options, and the prices are lows. For sit-down service and a tequila bar worth exploring, check out the sister location at 3201 Adams Ave., 619-578-2600.
