This one of the best Mexican restaurants in the area. The building is unassuming with a great Mexican décor on the inside. The food is always good. The service is outstanding and the pricing is very reasonable

We have been coming to El Tapatio for 8 years. The food is always genuine, the service quick and efficient, and the value can't be beat.
We travel often to Mexico, and the food is authentic. We also enjoy the fast service, and not having to spend over an hour or two as at other restaurants.
Some of our favorites include the Mexican shrimp cocktail, the chori-queso, chile rellenos, fajitas, and carne asada.

I've been eating here since the opened over a decade ago and have never had a bad meal here. All the food is great! Service can be an issue at times but once your order is taken, the food is served quickly. Their prices aren't bad either.

El Tapatio is our neighborhood go-to place for Mexican. Everyone knows La Tolteca, but we prefer El Tapatio--the food is good, service is typically fast, and the price is right. They often have Groupons, which makes it even less expensive. They have drink specials Mon/Tue evenings (Lime Margaritas for $2.99) and it's not as crowded then as on a weekend. For lunch or dinner, it's your best bet.
