So glad we found this gem.I loved everything here. Food was delicious and not salty as other Mexican places. Our server was very sweet. This is our new favorite.

Stopped for the first time today, and we have driven past many times, and I was impressed, thought it was just a fast food joint, and was wrong, the place is really nice, the food was outstanding, we will go back.

If you love Mexican you will love El Tapatio. The menu is extensive and has everything (and more) you can expect offered at a Mexican restaurant. The food is delicious, reasonably priced and served in large portions. Plus the service and ambiance were fabulous. Best...dining experience we had in Kissimmee!More

Was craving Mexican food for lunch so I decided (based on reviews) to visit this location with my coworkers. At 12:30 PM they were fairly busy, (parking lot was full) but I was greeted as I entered by a friendly face and promptly seated. Out...waitress, who's name escapes me (my apologies) was a stand out and I wish I could give her proper credit. She was such a joy and really explained the menu as it was our first time. She was courteousness, answered our questions (a group of lawyers always ask far too many) and was very accommodating. Despite other reviews, I did not feel like as an African American, I was treated poorly. My colleagues and I, had chips and guacamole(the guac was amazing!) , the lunch burrito, taco salad, and fajitas. The portion sizes were excellent and price was amazing! I was very impressed that I got my fajitas for $10.00 which was very filling and worth the price! The only reason I couldn't give 5 stars because the shredded chicken burrito lacked flavor. Food was authentic, service was quick despite being very busy and I will absolutely be adding this into our lunch rotation.More

We came here with friends that winter in the area.... This is their go to Mexican restaurant. It was good. I had no complaints about my quesadilla. I'm not a fan of refried beans so they let me substitute a salad. The rice was a...bit bland, but a dollop of salsa helped that. I'd definitely go back again, but I'm not sure I agree with some of the other raving reviews.More

This is the absolute best Mexican food restaurant I have ever had and I have eaten at thousands. It's rare to find one where absolutely everything blows your socks off from the complimentary chips and salsa, to the rice and beans. To me, the best...mexican food places should make you want to eat the rice and beans regardless of what diet you're on. The rice and beans at el tapatio are life changing. This place has ruined me for life. I live in Texas and only get to Florida once a year. I'm from Texas so I know good mexican food.More

From the moment we pulled in to the parking lot, I had no doubt that it was going to be a great experience. Upon entering the restaurant, we were warmly greeted and sat quickly while the restaurant was buzzing during the dinner hour. From the...margarita and dinner to the desert, it was excellent. The server, Illiana, was amazing. This was happy surprise to find this authentic restaurant and is the first one that I've found since moving here from the SW US. Great job and looking forward to my next visit.More

Better off asking asking the restaurant and not here.
