I first came here because I was driving by but have returned because of the general atmosphere and the friendliness of the staff. I am always trying out my Spanglish when ordering and they get a real kick out of my mangling the language. Perhaps if I eat here more, I'll learn how to order correctly. Service is great, prices...

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

Phil, thank you so much for the recommendation! There's a lot of good Mexican food in the area, so it's such a compliment that ours sits at the top of your list. The Cadillac Margarita is a favorite around here -- you have good taste. :) See you soon, The El Tapatio family 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.
