This store has everything Mexican. I've been going there for years I just buy their Guacamole & chips. It's great to bring when you are going to someone else's house and bring them this.

Looking for an affordable and good meal. Take out style ordering. The food was excellent. Saw a lot of people in the establishment, means its got to be good, right? Well it was very good. Had a torta and bought some homemade tortilla chips, excellent.

Fresh carnitas, tortillas de Mano, and freshest avocados. They only take cash but have an ATM in the store. Always a line but well worth the wait. Difficult finding parking.

Burrito's are the best. Nacho's are also on the top of our list to buy. You will return once you have gone there once.

Whenever I visit family outside the SF Bay area, they always ask for food from La Tapatia!! I can bring food for dinner plus leftovers at a great price. Always delicious! The people working here are so nice and so efficient!
