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

They have Sunday brunch and we went for Mothers Day. All the Mexican cuisine plus an omelet maker and waffle maker and fresh fruit bar! We enjoyed it as the staff is also A+. Recommend for an inexpensive fun brunch!

We were there last night for first time, with my husband and son. Service was fast, efficient and friendly. We each ordered different dishes, they were all superb, hot, plated nicely. We will return, only negative, a long drive for us

This one doesn't happen to be terrible. The food I've had here on my different visits has almost always been acceptable, or more so. The wait staff is friendly, and the service is quick and clean.

We've been going to this restaurant for years, but I am just now adding it to my reviews. One of the things I like over other Mexican restaurants I've been to recently is that the complimentary chips you start out with come with not only salsa for dipping, but also a refried bean dip which I love. I have a... More

We really do enjoy this place and that is why we keep coming back... More

My family enjoys coming here when we're in need of a Mexican meal. The food's always warm, flavorful, and filling, with very spacious booths. We've never had a bad experience here, and are quick to recommend it to local friends, as well as taking our out of town friends there, should the mood strike us.

We visit El Tapitio about once a month. The ambiance is warm and inviting. The booths feel roomy and comfortable. The food compares favorably with other sit-down Mexican restaurants we've been to. We love the hostess, R., who served us at another Mexican restaurant and we were delighted for find her again after the other restaurant closed down. I like... More

We take the family to El Tapatio often and enjoy the food, atmosphere and service. The people are always very friendly. They serve a bean dip with the chips that is really good! They have a lot of coupons so we always use the Entertainment book or other when we go. The location is great for anyone living in Cooper... More
