Never had a bad meal, consistently good

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... read 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

Nice family place operated by a wonderful family. The chef's special and burrito tapitio are favorites. The fajitas are very good as well. We buy the salsa to go to bring to friends when we go out of town to visit. Not fancy, but consistently very good.

El Tapatio is a locally owned Mexican restaurant in Sedalia, MO. Sedalia is mostly fast food restaurants right now so this is a nicer place for us. There is an extensive menu---meat and veggie options. They have excellent chips by the basket when you sit down to eat and their salsa is fresh. They have a Taco Tuesday night where... More

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
