“Best Authentic Mexican!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

The prices are outstanding and we love to go on Tuesdays and Thursdays for $1 tacos. Make sure to order the tacos with a fried shell. You won't regret it.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

Home made corn tortilla's and barbacoa delish! Go at lunch or grab take out. Beans are creamy and the tacos divine. Price is even better.

“Si, mucho bueno!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

Yes very good! That's about as much Mexican as I can say to describe this place... the food is great and authentic. The guacamole is fresh, and tastes like it's made to order. Yum. The restaurant, itself is quite small and the surrounding area looks like it's in an economic decline, but this place seems to be hanging on, and a carry-out favorite with the locals. Good, friendly service.

“Surprisingly awesome Mexican food in Muskegon!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

Just left a weeklong stay in Muskegon, El Tapatio was hands down, the best food we had while here. It's a small seating area, hard workig waitresses and good serving time. The food is cheap, good portion sizes, and delicious, very authentic Mexican fare. I am very picky about my Mexican food as I've lived in Chicago most of my life and was very pleasantly surprised to discover this place. I had a steak torta which was perfect. Guacamole was fantastic, quesadillas made with real chihuahua cheese, I can't find anything to complain about.
