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.

Great taco's and I usually judge a Mexican restaurant by their guacamole. They have very good guacamole and get the green hot sauce if you like the heat.

We went to Tapatio's South Lakeland location. Had not been there in a couple of years and probably won't return. Service was good but the food left a lot to be desired. Chicken on the enchiladas was dry and tasteless. Refried beans were pale and runny. The frozen margarita was too sweet. Draft beer selection was just three Bud products... More

The salsa and chips are very good. The service is fast and friendly. The only thing is that I have had a lot of different things here and everything kind of tastes the same. i do like the taste, but it seems like they use just a few ingredients to make a bunch of different things. I do not recommend... More

Very disappointed in everything except the chips & salsa. The food was just OK and the margaritas were tasteless. Would not go there again.
