My ultimate thing here is the FABULOUS lengua (tongue) tacos. Yummmm. They are street taco size so be sure you order 3 if you're hungry, 4 if your starving. Really great Mexican market, too.

Went to La Tapatia at a friend's suggestion. La Tapatia is a great taqueria. Wonderful selection of meats. Wonderful tortillas. Very good tacos, refried beans, and rice. The carnitas were quite good in flavor but uneven in quality. The carnitas was more consistent.More

This is just the best place in the area for Mexican food, either to take out or eat on premises. Don't go there, because you'll make line longer!
