Great Neighborhood Mexican Restaurant

El Tapatio is very close to my home, so it is the go to place when we are hungry for Mexican cuisine. It is not fine dining, but this family operated restaurant is worth giving a try. The meal portions are generous, the service is outstanding with food usually being served within 10 minutes of... read more

I enjoy this little place. It is in a strip mall and I found the staff, the owner, and a woman (not sure her connection) to be above and beyond in service. I greet them in Spanish and they reciprocate. My Spanish is fair so I enjoy practicing and they seem patient with me. I always order a lunch special... More

Went here over the summer, never thought to write a review. Sat in the back with my family by the chip station. Food was good and service is great but I noticed they were taking the uneaten chips people left and putting them back into a large container and then getting chips out of that container to serve to new...

The prices are very reasonable. Great place for lunch or dinner, friends, family or couples. If you want to be able to have a conversation,... More

When we walked in, we were greeted immediately by a lovely lady with a beautiful smile. Three different people helped to serve us and each one was smiling and very friendly. They were very attentive without being annoyingly attentive. We had an option of eating the buffet or from the menu. We saw other people with plates from the buffet... More
