Good Food, Great Value

This was my first visit to El Tapatio and I came for lunch with coworkers. The first thing that caught my attention was the house salsa. It was pretty hot! Not blazing hot, but usually a house salsa is pretty mild because everyone who comes in usually eats it. I'm fine with spicy food, so after my... read more

This family run restaurant serves great food for families and fans. They are busy every night and they run to keep up. The service is friendly and quick and the food is delicious. This has become a Seahawk team favorite as it is fairly close to their headquarters. Come by to enjoy authentic , good food!

My friends and I stopped by for lunch here and were very satisfied with our food. The service was great, our server checked in on how the food was and was good with providing refills without any of us asking. We will definitely be back again.

Good Mexican food served quickly and with a smile. Great place for families, however at times it can be very noisy. Food is freshly prepared.

We have been dining frequently at El Tapatio since we first tried it six years ago. It is a great place to dine with family and friends. The food is excellent and the staff are always smiling and making sure that you are enjoying your dinner and time at their place.

This is the best Mexican food on the Eastside! Even the Seahawks players eat here! We enjoyed one more meal here before we make our annual trip to Cabo San Lucas. The chicken enchiladas are better than you can make at home because of the delicious ranchero sauce! Go here for delicious food, nice service and A wonderful family-run restaurant.

We lived in the area for several years, and ate here at least 50 time, both in restaurant and take out. The service was always great, meals quick and hot, beverage nice and cold. Great chips and salsa at time of seating, a very good atmosphere all around. I did notice the portions starting to get smaller, especially the Chicken... More

We live in Newcastle and have been coming to Tapatio for many years now and have always had great food and service. It is a family owned and run restaurant with a good variety of items on the menu. Well worth a try but it can get busy on the weekends...because it is so good!
