Went there and had $1 tacos. They were delicious and cheap! And it was so neat to watch the staff making the tortillas in-house!

Food was good. I had a shrimp quesadilla and a side of guacamole. Both were very good. The servers were genuine, yet young and inexperienced which meant that they really didn't communicate very well (did not listen to my question and instead just talked without really answering my food related questions). It all worked out fine. The dining room smelled... More

My burrito was very good, as were the other three dishes we ordered. The setting was attractive and clean, and the service was good. The prices were competitive.

We just had the most wonderful experience at El Tapatio! Our two-year-old son has celiac disease and therefore has special dietary requirements; everyone was very empathetic and were so accommodating, so nice and they went above and beyond to confirm the food was gluten free and "celiac safe." This is one of the only places we've eaten that has chips... More

Folks love this place, but their bar must not be set very high. I was excited because they offered menudo on the menu (my personal litmus test for a "real" Mexican restaurant). The staff was extremely nice and helpful. Great service. But the food... Sigh. Lo Mejor de la Casa? I ordered Pollo poblano en mole (or some variation) and... More

The food is average although not as authentic as some places in Sedalia. The chips, salsa, and margaritas are the best offerings!

as the other El Tapatio restaurants I have eaten at in Missouri and Oklahoma. The food was the same. Great salsa, cheese dip, tacos, burittos, rice, refried beans, etc. The prices were the same, very reasonable. The service, however seemed to be lacking. Took a long time to place my order, then a long time to get my food. There... More

Moved to new location. Very nice. Very big. Service was good. Disappointed with food. Taste was ok.. When ifood came to table it was cold. That may be why food was just ok. Cheese dip just barely warm. Another's bean dip sent back because cheese wasn't melted and beans not hot. Enchilada just warm. Tostadas cold. Chips slightly stale. If... More
