We both had burritos. I had the dish with several, including chicken, cheese, beef. My husband's was shrimp. He really like his, mine was no different than I get at other Mexican places. Service was excellent. Prices reasonable.

Everything is homemade: salsa, sauces, tortillas, etc unlike many other places. Prices are reasonable. Camarones diablo was great; really good amount of heat in a homemade sauce.

The staff here was very pleasant, and our food was reasonably priced and arrived promptly! They also make a very good (and strong!) Peach Margarita! We will return!!

The Staff at El Tapatio are very friendly and attentive to your needs. We eat here often and have never had to ask for drink refills etc.....Nancy is our favorite! The food is delicious and comes out of the kitchen quickly. Prices are very reasonable.....Their Margaritas are delicious. Peach is one of my favorites
