Best Mexican food around! We have tried Mexican food from all over the area and we frequent here and the food is delicious. Staff is friendly.

Overall okay. I had the fish tacos, they weren't bad. My son had the kids meal burrito and rice and he liked it. My younger son doesn't like anything so he just ordered the chicken nuggets; they were disgusting! As if they're not already prepared with a lot of grease and on top of it they were dipped in oil....

A bit gaudy in deco but the food will not disappoint! Fresh, fast, and tasty; describes all the plates we ordered. The place was packed and it seems like others came after church like we did. I would come back to this restaurant again and again because their food, service and price remains consistent with every visit.

Indifferent service, food didn't match the descriptions on the menu. Ordered carnitas with green chile sauce, but the waiter brought out the order covered with red sauce. When we pointed out the error, the waiter shrugged and said "that's all we have". One of us got a case of the trots the next morning.

Nice spot for a casual lunch. Chips and salsa tasted great. I had chicken Fajitas, they came out sizzling and full of flavor.

We were in Madison for a weekend getaway. Wanted some Mexican food and chose Tapatio. I would rate it as very average and nothing special. Service was fairly slow, chips were stale and margaritas were fairly watered down. Would not go back.

They have a large parking lot and easy access. We were able to be seating almost immediately. Service was great, the food was decent.

Seated Right away, very friendly service attentive staff. Food was fresh and hot, but was very bland. Very little seasoning, seemed to have a complete lack of salt on some of the dishes, including the salsa. Daughter raved about the fish tacos. Loved the fact everything was fresh, just bland.

The food was tasty, but really strange choices on the menu to be sure. Can't imagine using hot dogs in a fajita. Watered down margaritas make that a definite skip. Not bad atmosphere, decent service.

We were here on New Years Day and had a good meal. Everything was hot and fresh, good salsa and chips, very good guacamole. Large portions, freshly prepared, fresh iced tea. It was slow and we had a hard time getting our servers attention, but the experience was good, bathrooms were clean, prices were reasonable. Nice place-very colorful! Would go... More
