we finally made to La Tapatia last Saturday for lunch. We had tried to go before they moved, but, could never get a parking spot. My Granddaughter can be fussy, but, she had the quesadia, and asked if it could just have chicken and cheese, no problem, it was huge and delicious. She took half of it home and had... More

Some previous negative posts do no justice for this place. The service is wonderful and the food is excellent. Did I mention they make a real margarita no sugary bottle mix. The kitchen is very clean and they are organized. If you are looking for American Mexican food don't come here. This food is more authentic then the food at... More

My husband and I went to La Tapitia last night for the first time, for dinner. The parking lot was mobbed so we figured that was a good sign. We were seated quickly in a booth, and in about 5-10 minutes were given chips and homemade salsa...and two hot sauces. We ordered drinks - my husband wanted a bottle of... More

I used to love Tapatía. Real-deal tacos in a family place made perfect lunches. Very sorry to see last week that they have closed.

Food, Drinks and Deserts were amazing but suits only for Mexican Taste. I saw 90% of people only Mexicans.

It was the first time we ate at this restaurant and I never will again. The restaurant was clean and the waiter friendly. Food was ordered and 2 meals came out wrong. The food was only warm and wasn't very good. All of us thought the same.

Excellent authentic Mexican cuisine. The staff is very helpful and will make recommendations from their menu. Personal favorites are Carnitas Tacos and Pork Tamales!

When we first moved to Marlborough, La Tapatia was two blocks away. It was so good, we were going there for dinner multiple times a month. Now that it's moved to a bigger location, we don't go as often, but it's still our most-frequented restaurant in town. The food is fresh, authentic, and tasty. The salsa has the right amount...

Lots of family and young kids when we went on Saturday night. Tried cactus margarita and liked it very much. The only thing we didn't like... More

Love this place! It was a proper hole-in-the-wall to begin, but has now moved into a full restaurant on the main drag through town. The tacos are truly delicious - I personally prefer the chorizo, but they're all good. Sit down with a friend and order a few with a beer (or two). I've even called ahead and taken them... More
