El Tap is THE authentic Mexican food restaurant with great choices. The staff make you feel as if you were in their home; attentive, VERY friendly, and I promise, you'll want to come back!

Love the food and drinks at El Tap. The staff are always friendly and courteous not to mention fast. This place always has a line to get in on the weekends but it doesn't matter. You just wait. It's worth it.

The service is great with personable staff. The food is what you'd expect, nothing stands out above normal. The biggest downfall is the quality of margarita that you get here. Even when you order top shelf, hand made they just don't get it right.

This came as a recommendation from a locale. Frankly that was the only upside. The food was bland, decor uninspiring and service slow. We waited for 10 minutes to get a drink order. Complimentary chips and salsa were adequate at best. I had the fajitas...More

I, for the life of me don't understand the good reviews, unless they are friends and family of this restaurant. Yes, it is a big nice place, but that is where it stops. The service is just so so unless you know the waiters, and...More
