Food was good, not the best we've had, but good. Menu had large selection. The service was very good and food was served quickly. Within walking distance of Comfort Inn, which was nice.

This restaurant was just a short walk from our hotel. It is small, but the food was delicious and the waiter was very nice and accommodating! One of the best margaritas I have ever drank!

Truly a great dining experience. My husband and I stopped here for dinner on a whim as the parking lot seemed to have quite a few local vehicles as well as people from out of town. We were promptly seated and impressed by the extensive menu that offered a wide variety of food for any budget. While we were trying... More

My husband had the chicken fajitas which were moist and seasoned perfectly. we started off with a margarita which was... More

The young man that greeted us has great customer service skills, he was very attentive not only to us but everyone in the restaurant. Prices are reasonable and the food tastes great! Definitely worth the stop!

Friendly service, delicious authentic food. I had a combo, and they were very willing to adapt the choices to include mole for my enchilada. (Some places won't allow any substitutions on the combos.) They didn't skimp on the tequila in the house margarita, either!

Not many options in Parachute except fast-food so El Tapatio was an easy choice. I had a steak burrito that was absolutely huge! It was quite good. Staff spoke enough English although not too extensively. Restaurant is a little tricky to find because it is sort of in an alley so look for the marijuana dispensary and Subway immediately north...
