Delicious!

We called ahead to find they don’t take reservations, but as we had a group of eight, the kept our group in mind. We didn’t have to wait and we got a big table together on a Friday night. We ordered the pitcher of margaritas, which was adequate for two light drinkers and two not-so-light. I can... read more

This place is the best Mexican place I've had in this area. The salsa was fresh and tasty, they also serve refried beans with your chips. The margarita were fantastic, $5 on Wednesdays! And the app combo, everything on it was amazing. I can't wait to go back!

We were really disappointed with this experience. The reviews were really good, so we were excited about another great Mexican experience in California. But the food tasted like it was from a can, not home cooked. After multiple fantastic Mexican meals all over Northern California, it was a sad way to end our trip.

My wife and have been to La Tapatia in Concord a number of times and both believe that it has the best burritos in the city. Their signature dishes and combination plates are also excellent. The only dish so far that has not excelled is the whole fried fish. There is an excellent tequila list that embraces over 100 different... More

I have always loved this place! It's never let me down. As another reviewer mentioned, the bean dip (that is FREE!) that they start you off with is just fantastic. Red and green salsa come with (the green one is delightfully spicy!) the dip and chips and it's free refills on those. There's a nice selection of beer and liquor... More

This restaurant has been in Concord for over 30 years and it continues to be our favorite Mexican restaurant. Nice patio and atmosphere. They also have one in Martinez with a beautifull banquet facility.
