Good place to eat, great margaritas, great service!

It's been several years since I last reviewed El Tapatio, and it remains an excellent choice for tasty Mexican food. The menu is individual to the restaurant - they don't have the standard "Speedy Gonzales" style lunch specials. Food is always good, and authentically not particularly spicy. Salsa is actually tasty although mild (but they have a much hotter version... More

Very average Mexican food, but considered the better choice for Mexican in Sedalia. Service average, price is on higher average price side, not cheap Mexican. Not outstanding in anyway.

I enjoyed the meal. I have had the taco salad and the tacos recently. Both meals were delicious. They were courteous and very service oriented.

My mom and I dined here while we were in town. We were seated and chips and salsa were brought out immediately. The salsa is VERY good. It's not too hot, which I enjoyed. It's a smooth salsa not chunky and has a touch of cilantro in it. We both ordered fajitas. I had chicken and she had the trio... More

El Tapatio is a great place to go for authentic Mexican food! The wait staff is fast, and you usually get your order very quickly. The margaritas are also amazing!

On our trips back and forth from Lake of the Ozarks we had seen El Tapatio from our car several times. On this trip our party of four was hungry and decided to give this place a try. WOW, what a great decision! The only bad thing? This place is not in our hometown. I would go to El Tapatio... More

My boyfriend lived in this area for quite a long time, and has been raving about this for the past eight years. We finally had an opportunity to travel to this area, and stopped here for dinner. This is great authentic Mexican food, and the prices are quite reasonable. The staff and service are excellent.
