Taqueria el Tapatio has always been a strong performer and a great value, but lately we've been particularly hooked on it for breakfast. If there were ever a motivator to make you wanna get out of bed and put on some pants on a weekend morning, this is it. The juevos rancheros come with three home-made sauces on the side,... More

We really had a good experience in eating there. The food was good and place was clean. Food came out promptly. Service was okay but not friendly and welcoming. We plan on going there again.

Had beef Milanesa. Hard to find in the states. The preparation was good. The interior was like a Mexican sports bar with predominately Mexican men there. Food ok, could use some decoration and a family atmosphere.

Not the biggest fan of Mexican in any food form so I may not be the best to judge. I had a take out order of chicken quesadilla. They were okay. Made fast, very little wait time. Staff was friendly. My order was still hot by the time I ate it. Portion was large and the price was fair at... More

Went here on recommendation from the clerk at our hotel. Standard decor, tables and chairs. Soccer channel on TV. We missed the lunch crowd and only 4 other tables were filled. Greeted promptly and seated. Friendly waitress. Our food was promptly served. The gravy was flavorful but not too strong on the chili powder. The beans were a little too... More

Hungry for Mexican, this restaurant was one of the closest to where I was staying. The three taco, rice and beans deal was a great price--6.99, but who ever heard of tongue tacos being dry? They were and that's just not right. The barbaracoa taco was better. The salsa and chips were fine, but ordinary. A good deal. Lots of... More

A converted piazza hut, stackable chairs and tables covered with a spongy oilcloth greeted me, but I presisted on, glad I did. A friendly waitress quickly arrived to take my order and bring the requisite chips and salsa. Although it was lunch time, I saw no specials on the menu, but the entrees range from 5-7 dollars, so they cant... More

I frequent this restaurant for breakfast, and the main reason I go is because the people who work there are so friendly and kind. They provide excellent customer service every single time. The food is very good, and the prices are very reasonable. This restaurant has been a Sunday morning hangout for me for awhile, and I always look forward... More

Really good food at good prices. The guacomole and salsa has cilantro in it though. I know cilantro is a love/hate food.
