If I Could Rate It Higher, I Would!

This is, by far, my favorite Mexican restaurant of any I've been to, ANYWHERE! It is authentic, homemade food...FRESH. The quality, portion sizes, prices, service, variety cleanliness, taste...all rate a 10 in my book! Do yourself a favor and give El Tapatio a try.

But it won't be the last. I drive by here almost every day and never thought to stop for lunch until a friend suggested we meet there. We were seated right away (they were about half-full at lunch) and we got our drinks right away. I was a little disappointed, and surprised, that we couldn't get Mexican Coke in a... More

This is by far the best Mexican in Muskegon. They are always packed. I always get tongue tacos and queso fonduta- AMAZING. I've never had a bad meal and there is ALWAYS great flavor!!!

Hi everyone, please ignore the menu that is given here, or on any website. It is 100% different than the actual one. Please stop in for a to-go menu instead of being upset we don't actually have alcoholic beverages or "mexican pizzas".

My wife and I got take out from El Tapatio and were satisfied with our food. I ordered beef and cheese nachos and my wife ordered 2 beef enchiladas with a side of lettuce (the lettuce was going bad, but maybe it was just us). Over all, I would order again when I am back in the area.

Love the tacos here. The food is very consistent. Prices are awesome. It does get busy on Tuesdays for the taco special.

Cute, colorful spot with authentic Mexican food. Loved that they asked if you wanted your tacos "Mexican" or "American" style (onions & cilantro vs. lettuce, tomato & cheese).

Food was not good. Low quality meat, Luke warm food, and you pay extra for all cheese, sour cream, and chips, sala after the first basket etc. They have listed online that they have liquor and they do not. They also have a sign that says their credit card machine is broken today, but the sign is torn and tattered.... More

Love their tacos! Especially love their American style chicken tacos and guacamole. Chips and salsa are always a good start. Service okay.
