4 out of 5 stars...
Short background about how our quiet dinner for two turned into a late, group outing of 11. We went to our godson's baseball game and unbeknownst to me; my husband had invited our godson and his parents to dinner. They also had another child with them. Then they invited some family members and the baseball coach's family. So, here we are...8 adults and 3 kids trying to find a place to eat at 9 pm on a Thursday night in Carolina Beach. And yes, that is the same night as fireworks and the beach music concert. Hmm.... so, we ended up at El Zarape.
They seated us in this strange upstairs area right next to the club. Yes, there's a club. It took approximately 20 minutes for us to get our drinks. When we were finally served our food, it was good. Really good. I didn't expect to eat so much. It just wasn't greasy like other Mexican places and I didn't even feel gross later. Full, but not gross like after El Cerro.
So, I'm overlooking the odd seating and service issues and giving them 4 stars for the non-greasy food.
