Tapatio's on Memorial is still a good place to eat. On some Sunday nights they have a mariachi band that moves from table to table playing the Mexican songs we gringos request. Do not expect too much of a Tex-Mex atmosphere as it is a converted Burger King. The prices have crept up in the last year, probably not too... More

I know they have a Mexican grocery store next to the one on the south end of town. I recommend this place over any chain place!! Please go and check... More

We eat at Tapatio's frequently but always get the ceviche tostada and the taco salad. This last trip we thought we would try something new. Burrito deluxe for me. The burrito was more of a quesadilla as they didn't finish wrapping it all the way and the inside only had beef and some beans. The top had some shredded cheese... More

My family has been to Tapa Tio's for special occasions(birthdays and anniversaries) and the service and food have always been top-notch. Walk-ins are welcome and the atmosphere is relaxed. I would reccomend this restaurant to any who wish to sample great Mexican food at a decent price.

We were staying in Lakeland for a dance competition and felt like venturing away from downtown to eat. I used trip advisor to find this restaurant. It was very clean and bright. We had a delicious meal. It was raining outside and I had the stew.... Delicious. My little girl ate her whole meal! We will be back.

The most authentic mexican food you'll find in the area! Super fast and friendly service. If you get to go service call ahead and it will be there waiting for you in less than 15 minutes.

Huge portions, great family atmosphere and only a couple of miles from Joker Marchant Stadium. Margaritas could have been better, but the chips and home made salsa and the huge portions of tasty Mexican food more than made up for it. Good spot!

Great authentic Mexican food, not the processed Americanized version. Can be not spicy if you want it to.
