Stopped in for a quick lunch. Had a bowl of green chili that may have been the best I have ever eaten. Pork was melt in your mouth tender, sauce was perfectly spiced and the vegetables perfect. Had some flour tortillas to complete the meal.

Small inside with a small outside area, but the service and food is excellent. Very traditional Mexican/American food like you might have eaten in Southern California Yum! Very reasonable prices and more food than you can eat. Give it a try its well worth it.

Had lunch here on a Saturday. Service was mixed—the guy who seated us seemed very depressed and uninterested but our actual waitress was decent. The food was bland and gave the impression of canned/processed foods instead of freshly prepared. I had a tostada and it...More

Last night I wanted to take dear friends to dinner. They chose La Tapatia, a Mexican restaurant on Park Center Boulevard in East Boise. There is a reason it's their favorite. Not only is it easy to get to from downtown, east or north Boise,...More

We really enjoyed our lunch at La Tapatia. The portions were generous and well priced. Would highly recommend it especially to guests staying at the Holiday Inn Express right next door.
