Delicious

Hands down our favorite salsa ever. The homemade tortillas are scrumptious. We always enjoy dinner out here. Tonight we had the fried ice cream.

Best I've had outside of New Mexico. The food is very fresh. Rice was extremely light and fluffy, and very flavorful. Surprised to see that they made their tortilla in house. So good.

Went with my girlfriend's family during my first visit to Sedalia. We met as a huge group of 10-12 so I was skeptical of how much I'd like the food and how good the service would be. Plus, they were very crowded. However, it was wonderful. I asked for some hotter salsa and was expecting something not much hotter than... More

Always good food. Never dissapointed. New location is great, more parking easier to get in parking lot from street. Staff always pleasant and service is great.

I'm usually skeptical about being able to find good Mexican food in a Midwest town, so I was very happy to find El Tapatio! The dining area is quite large. We were seated right away and the server was quick to bring chips and salsa and take our beverage orders. I got a combination plate with three items so that... More

This has been my family's favorite home-town restaurant for two decades. Now they have the location and ambiance to go with the food. Personal food favorites are the Chef;s Special, Burrito Tapatio, Enmoladas, and Flautas. Can't go wrong with the Fajitas either. For dessert, try the fired ice cream or Sopapias. If the weather permits, they have a large outdoor... More

The food is consistent and the staff are courteous. We eat at this restaurant at least once a week. There are other Mexican restaurants in Sedalia, but we like the food and drinks best at El Tapatio.

Love the homemade tortillas. Much Better than all the chain places in town on every corner. I had the poblano cream sauce enchiladas one chicken one cheese. Both very good. Very good quality yellow cheese inside not the fake stuff. Beans and rice are above average. They have excellent salsa with bits of fresh cilantro. Also had a side of... More

First time in Sedalia. Disclosure 1: My husband is from Mexico City, and as a result, I know Mexican food *rather* well. Disclosure 2: I live in Montreal, home to some of the WORST Tex-Mex restaurants on Earth. So, ventured into El Tapatio, on a business trip, with no set expectations. It is obviously a family restaurant, not fine dining.... More
