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

We recently moved from Montrose and have been trying new restaurants in Delta. We found El Tapatio, and it has quickly become one of our go to favorites. The food is good quality, tasty and affordable. The atmosphere is casual and welcoming. And you can afford to bring the whole family.

I had hoped to find better food here based on other Trip Advisor reviews but was disappointed in the food. I had ordered the tacos al carbon and ended up only eating the meat out of the inside of the taco - the tortillas were so wet that I couldn't even begin to pick them up - not sure if... More

I am from Texas. So, when I have Mexican food, my expectations are not low. That being said this restaurant was not that great. When I leave wishing that I would have had fast food instead, it isn't good. The refried beans were the best thing on the plate. The chicken verde enchiladas that I got were cooked in a... More

We have eaten here several times. Always the same service and food. Not bad for a small town. Will visit again.

We love to go here and enjoy great Mexican food and beer. They start you off with salsa and Chips. The service is good as the waiters are nice and attentive. The prices are good and a nice selection of tequila . The food is more traditional Mexican and is always great.

My family and I eat here all the time. Could not ask for better service, everyone is always friendly and joking with us, playing with the kids....everything. Service is beyond any expectation and the food is sooo good. My dad travels a lot, and first thing he does when he gets back home is go to El Tapatio! The seafood... More
