We fancy ourselves to be Mexican food experts, having grown up and visited SoCal often. This place is just OK; we did not find the food to taste super-fresh, and the sauces seemed packaged, rather than scratch.

This is, to behonest, a quaint hole in the wall. But it has atmosphere galore and the food was delicious... from what seems like home made nacho chips, salsa, and guacamole right through to the best chile and enchiladas I have tasted in a long time. It is not tex mex like so many places in Canada, but more authentic... More

Wow! Who knew this kind of Mexican could be found in Biddeford, Maine? My daughter and I enjoyed everything. The portions are huge and everything was so fresh. Chimichangas, enchiladas, tostaguac...all excellent. My only complaint was how loud it was when the servers cleared the dishes into the rolling dish cart in the dining area. Other than that... I can't... More

We have no local Mexican restaurants where we live, so we were looking forward to finding a good place on our latest trip to Maine, and based on the reviews we decided to go local and try Los Tapatios, and are glad we did. We did an early dinner,and the place was moderately busy. We were quickly seated and before... More

I find the food the most realistic and least mass produced of all the local Mexican restaurants. Prices are reasonable and service is good. I haven't been moved by their Margaritas but not enough to keep me away when I have had the need for Mexican food.

Great little Mexican Restaurant! The portions were plentiful, chips free with good salsa and waitstaff attentive. The favorite thing we had was part of a combo: Stuffed poblano pepper! It was stuffed with non-instant mashed potato and covered with a delectable green sauce. The sangria was tasty and giant with tons of fresh fruit. See you tomorrow!

Coming from the SW we've been disappointed in the mexican food options available in the Biddeford area until Los Tapatios arrived. The food is fresh and authentic for the most part. Favorites are the enchiladas and fajitas. Portions are generous and the prices are reasonable. Service is good. Not a fancy place..has typical mexican decor and brown tables and chairs.... More

Was really excited to hear that there was a Mexican spot in downtown Biddeford. Actually kind of enjoyed the atmosphere...the restaurant is located in the basement of a building, but they added some funky touches to make the space unique. Here is what I enjoyed about Los Tapatios: Really nice service, ice cold dos equis on tap, fresh tortilla chips... More

Always a pleasure to visit Los Tapatios! Delicious Mexican food. Try the enchiladas with the mole poblano sauce. Yum.

Los Tapatios has great Mexican tap beers and drinks, service is very good and a nice Mexican style décor. However the food is just average and some of the food with chicken was overcooked and really dry.
