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!

This has been in the hood for many years, and it's a nice place close by for a good meal. Never had any issues with food or service.

Good food, good service, and reasonable pricing. I've been coming to the Newcastle and Factoria restaurants for 15 years and have never been disappointed.

We've been eating at Tapatio's for several years now with friends, family and just us and we always enjoy our meal. We typically go on a Friday night, which is very busy but they are relatively quick to seat you. The staff is welcoming and friendly. They are able to meet any dietary requirements. They offer a nice wine selection... More

Can't say enough about this restaurant! We dine here quite frequently and just love all the dishes we have tried. Excellent food with great quality ingredients. The restaurant owner and staff are a delight and make the dining experience wonderful! We normally have a margarita and it's nice that Tapatio does not 'water' the drinks down. Yummy restaurant in every... More

First of all they have the best rice in any Mexican restaurant ever. There are several signature dishes you should try here, my favorites are Chile Colorado and Enchiladas Guadalajara, if you are craving for steak Carne Asada or Tacos Carbon, if you are craving grilled chicken Pollo Taraxco or Pollo Al Carbon. I have to warn you: the one... More

They make wonderful fish tacos, Chicken Mole Pablano, Pollo Taraxco, Carne Asada, Fijitas and other dishes are well executed and delicious. They have extensive vegetarian offerings and are happy to make them vegan if you want that. They make their own tortillas on site and you can watch them being cooked. All the dishes are a good value. The main... More

If you live in Newcastle and do not want to drive to another city, this is your only choice. It is not bad, but nothing more than food to fill you stomach.
