This place is amazing. The burritos here are the most delicious I have had. Sometimes there can be a line, but the food is definitely worth it. It might be a good idea to take it to go as the place is small and it could e hard to find a seat.
I have to concur that the attitude of the staff is rather homophobic and unfriendly AT TIMES. At other times they seem very friendly. It is very hard running a good restaurant, keeping up with sanitary needs. This place never feels really clean. And when I look back into the kitchen through the pass through (I am very tall) it looks disorganized and a little dirty... okay a lot dirty. But that does not mean it is unsanitary. I still eat here once in awhile. So I have to believe the place is okay. Darn good fish taco!
**BEWARE** The service is awful. Nasty and mean cashiers that give you attitude. Very prejudice toward gays and lesbians. They seem to have a problem serving anyone that appears gay/lesbian to them and snicker and stare behind the counter and will barely acknowledge you then wait on you with a very condescending and patronizing demeanor. SHAME ON THEM!
El Zarape above average mexican food .My better half (in many ways) and I, we went to the NEW Zarape on Adams Ave and 32nd st.We were pleasantly surprised, with a couple of good dishes . Well one good and one outstanding Fish w/crab type sauce (right on ).The imported merlot outstanding .thier margaritas are OK if you LIKE a full glass of ICE for $7.50 with a couple sipps of fluid.(NOT GOOD). Watch out for the margarita girl. They have a Meatball soup which althought is not a soup at all is very tasty good for a appetizer, minus the rice and beans. The service was excellent !!!

I live just a few blocks away from El Zarape and absolutely LOVE it! The menu is extensive (even for vegetarians!). Every single thing that my fiance and I have tried, we have enjoyed. The place is very small, so we usually get take out. Chips and salsa are not to be missed!
I have eatin in restaurants all over the country and even internationally, this by far was the worst. The food came out barely warm, the meat for the taco was burnt and the food was not prepared with the correct amount of seasoning to have a taste. The only good thing is that they used real chicken in the enchiladas which they failed to break up. The taco meat had so much filler in it, that it was gross. I will never waste my money nor my palate their again. I would get hotter and better quality food from a Mexican Lady on a corner selling tamales and enchiladas. What is worse is that had a sticker in their window stating that they were rated highest quality, talk about false advertising. I have never rated a restaurant before but I would rate this one no stars
