This restaurant has been open for years. I have enjoyed food, service, and atmosphere since it opened. No corners have been cut or service laxed.

This recipe has worked so well that an opportunity to open another restaurant of quality atmosphere... More

Very friendly and fast. We arrived just after the lunch crowd was leaving, everything was clean already and the restaurant was a little noisy but that was ok. Our orders came quickly, were correct and were well presented on the plates. I lived down south, traveled quite a bit and have had what I consider real Mexican food. This was... More

If you like genuine Mexican food this is a good place to eat. We enjoyed all the food we have tried here. The service has always been outstanding, served by Mexican people. It has very colorful Mexican decor and sometimes live music?

El Tapatio is our favorite local Mexican Restaurant. It is in a strip mall and has plenty of parking. The hosts and servers are friendly and attentive. The menu is a typical Mexican American Restaurant with many choices along with a lunch section and a combination meal section. Prices are very reasonable and portions are plentiful. They start you with... More

The service was absolutely horrific. Entirely unprofessional, rude, awkward. Please don't give them your money. There are other places to eat. I wouldn't wish this on anyone. My wife and mother and I left infuriated.

Great Mexican food. I have never been disappointed and you can't beat the price. They go out of their way for Birthdays and can seat large parties. Only negative is wish they had more beer selections on tap.
