We had the fish tacos, and a combination plate, all were good, Reasonable prices, and the service was good. It is not fancy, but the sort of place you'll frequent.

Overall a good time. Food arrived quickly and hot. One order out of seven was incorrect and they offered to fix it but we were good with what was brought out. Generous portions.

We brought friends here for a birthday dinner. Overall pleased with the food & service. Tucked away in a strip mall, you'll want to use Google to get you here. Better than average mexican fare . Will visit again! Give it a try! ** word to the wise, the salsa served with the chips is VERY VERY spicy!

Got to say that the meal I have had twice now is some of the best Mexician food I have had in the Beaverton area. I ordered the bacon wrapped shrimp and a Patron Silver marg, really good. When you walk in you may think, "typical Mexician" restaurant, but you will be surprised at the quality of food. Hint: Go... More

El Tapatio is very close to my home, so it is the go to place when we are hungry for Mexican cuisine. It is not fine dining, but this family operated restaurant is worth giving a try. The meal portions are generous, the service is outstanding with food usually being served within 10 minutes of your order. They also have... More

I enjoy this little place. It is in a strip mall and I found the staff, the owner, and a woman (not sure her connection) to be above and beyond in service. I greet them in Spanish and they reciprocate. My Spanish is fair so I enjoy practicing and they seem patient with me. I always order a lunch special... More
