Their food is very very consistent. They have the best chips and salsa I've ever put in my mouth. I typically get something pretty benign like fajitas but they are fabulous. My husband chooses something more authentic and loves it every time. I know they always order extra queso. I highly recommend if you're in town stopping by there's one... More

Most people go to Tapatios in order traditional Mexican food like tacos and burritos. There is nothing wrong with this but what really makes Tapatio special is there unique dishes from the Mexican area of Jalisco that... More

Great Mexican restaurant with a short wait for your food. The chips are very fresh and delicious. The food is great and priced appropriately. We eat here typically once or twice a month!

My husband and I eat at Tapatios south Lakeland at least once a month. We love the authentic Mexican food and their salsa is exceptional. Service is quick and the owner is friendly and knows his regulars by name. Highly recommend this restaurant.

While visiting for a Drum corps completion, a group of us decided to have dinner before. Based on menu, price and location, we chose Tapitos. Please note there are 2 locations, as one if us went to the wrong one! The food was plentiful, the prices reasonable and the service was very prompt. They were able to accommodate a party... More

We look for a good restaurant in Lakeland where the family meets between Tampa and Orlando. Promising the granddaughter a Mexican meal, we found this's in a AAA magazine referral. The seven of us good meals, super nachos, enchiladas, salads, burritos, and ceviche on tostadas. Great service and accommodations.

I was stationed in San Diego and enjoyed real Mexican cuisine. I've now found a place that brings back memories of living in southern California. The one thing I was happy about is they can and will create the menu options vegetarian. I went with combo of enchilada and tamale. One chicken one beef. Both seasoned well and came out... More
