I'm travel from Memphis to Delta once a year for camping/hunting. I always make plans to eat here! Great food, great staff!

The staff was very friendly but the food is only average. They have an extensive menu but they don't allow any substitutions. The food arrived at our table luke warm and it was disappointing.

Food is overpriced, not really good and the service was unacceptable. They acted like we were bothering them and just really did not care

We frequent El Tapatio at least twice each month. I must admit that I could eat their crispy Chile Relleno every time I walk in the door, and that is what I usually do every time. The salsa and cabbage is excellent with a hint of pepper and sometimes lime. The re-fried beans are an excellent side along with the... More

I went for my birthday and the staff, mostly the male server, was not very polite. I asked for a birthday shot and they never brought it and i didn't get the birthday dessert that i asked for because the cook supposedly left before they could bring it to me. :( I was petty bummed because it was my first...

Great way to celebrate Christmas Eve. The staff at El Tapitio is wonderful and their food is as terrific. The surrounding are bright and gay and put you in a good mood upon entering. This is one of our favorite places to head for when we want good Mexican food. You won't be disappointed!

All the Mexican food in Delta was superb. And all the Margaritas in Delta were expensive. The waiter here was very nice and accommodating. Food was out fairly quickly, hot and delicious.

As I was traveling across Southwest Colorado, I have stayed in upper market hotels with fine cuisine but also wanted to try the typical foods of locals in a more casual setting, specially while in a road trip. I love Mexican Food (who doesn't right?), so I had to give this place a try. The restaurant is very casual, though... More
