"Family run business with a wide selection, fair prices and ability to cut and program automotive keys at a discount to the dealers.
Very happy with the service."

Yelp rating:

"I LOVE this place!
1) Cute key designs (I got a vintage Mickey Mouse design)
2) SO cheap (I got two standard keys made today - $2.50 each!)
3) SO quick (It was seriously a minute or two between asking for key copies and having them in my hand)
4) Great service (The guy who works there is super friendly!)

Another great bonus:
I was signing the iPad receipt and had to ask where they got the stylus because it worked so wonderfully. He replied by saying that it's actually one of their promotional items and GAVE ME ONE! I had my iPad in my car and tried it out right away...OMG I will be loyal to Viva Zapata FOREVER!!!"

"thank you Mo ! Just got my transponder key cut and after the second try (minor adjustment)....Success! I wasn't expecting the key to work due to my part but for a fraction of Lexus dealer price I have a brand new key."

"Absolutely top notch. Zapata is great in terms of service, knowledge, skill and efficiency. This is a well deserved 5 star business that I am actually (sort of) happy to need! Not like your money is going to wasteful middle men who don't do jack.
Price very reasonable. They came out same day for a lock issue one front door, which has a 100 year old lock it seems. Repaired what could be repaired but didn't want to damage the truthfully ancient lock I recommended a specialist. Zapata stayed for over an hour and a half to get the job done and I really appreciate that. I've also been in the store and it's nice, friendly and clean. Again well run and professional. I had an old cabinet that needed a new lock. The took out old one that I didn't have key for and replaced it with a new one. It was 20 dollars I recall. Highly recommended and I would give 6 stars if I could."
