Historic Norcross – Zapata Tacos and Tequilla

IMG_4480This is the Norcross Train Depot and holds a new restaurant, The Crossing. For years it was The Norcross Station a very good restaurant. This is main street in Historic Norcross. IMG_4489It holds a bunch of shops and restaurants.IMG_4495  IMG_4501IMG_4488So there is Zapata, obviously a Mexican restaurant. Zap 8Traditional Chips and salsa to start.  Nice decor.Zap 1But the food is so different, there are no Speedy’s on the menu. They have this wonderful soup….Zap 4Sopa Azteca – a tomato and quajillo pepper based chicken broth – an avocado slice with pasilla pepper flakes, queso fresco crumbs and tortilla strips. Spectacular! Then the lunch entree, Enchiladas Verdes…Zap 3 soft corn tortillas filled with shredded chicken and covered with tomatillo sauce and imported white cheddar cheese, then topped with sour cream. served with refried beans and rice.

If you want to try a place that gives you traditional dishes in a homemade style. The food is out of this world.

IMG_3607The park was stunning. Then off to the Arts Festival, up to the top of the steps.IMG_3609About two hours into it, it starts pouring down rain. I ran to the Rick Case Automotive tentIMG_3613These are a few of their cars and they were super nice!
