I wanted to write another review of Los Tapatios because this restaurant continues to impress us. We have a great time each and every time that we go in. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is what you would expect from a Mexican restaurant. Food is always great and my wife who grew up in South Central LA (that's... More

If I'd written this review two years ago, it would be a 5 star review; however, this restaurant has gone downhill in both service and food quality. This place used to serve very fresh and well prepared foods, but I've been twice this year (2014) and was sorely disappointed both times. Their corn chips, at one time, were fresh and... More

This was our second visit and we're still impressed. The food is great. Not spiced too much - you have to remember that this is Maine. The flavors are clean and fresh. The chili poblano stuffed with potato and cheese and topped with salsa verde is amazing. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

Love this place, I can come here by self for a great meal and a margarita, or with my whole family, my kids love the chuuros and fried ice cream. Very inexpensive. It's so good I ate here twice in the same day last week. The gentleman who runs the restaurant, Gama, makes sure everyone is happy. I make sure... More

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!
