“Good Experiance”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Showed up with a party of 12. They were able to seat us within a reasonable amount of time. Once seated the staff was fantastic. I don't know how they did it but all the entrees arrived at once. When we dug in to our meals no one was unhappy or disappointed. My only nit to pick is with the margaritas. They use a mix. I will recommend this restaurant to my friends and family should they be in the area.

“Very average bland Mexican Food”
Reviewed March 21, 2012

The food is very bland and uninspiring. The service is also very poor. Far too many good Mexican restaurants these days to waste your money here.

“Good basic Mexican food”
Reviewed March 8, 2012

Ask for the salsa picante when you get your chips, much hotter than the salsa they give you when you sit down at first. There are vegetarian options and some great traditional Mexcan dishes like Birria (made with lamb instead of goat). Serice was fast at lunch and value was good. Next time I will go on Thursday night and get one of their drink specials like a Carmel Apple Rita!!!

“Won't Find a Better One!”
Reviewed January 4, 2012

Third time eating here in the past few months, what a fantastic place Price is fine, friendly staff and wonderful, warm atmosphere. Food is terrific, fresh, hot and plentiful. Several bonuses not found at other mexican restaurants: free, fresh cup of soup of the day...I've had Corn Chowder, Cream of Mushroom (a little odd for Mexican place) and Creamy Tomato (tonight). In addition, daily drink specials, like $1.50 marguarita's and $1.00 beers...to top it off, when they bring the check, they bring a small after dinner drink - tonight it was Bailey's w/Whipped Cream...where have you found that. It's family friendly, cozy, comfy tables/booths, a small bar and just an all around great place....check it out soon!

“Seafood Enchiladas ~ YUMMY!!!”
Reviewed December 29, 2011

I grew up in the Elk Grove Village area and Tapalpa was two blocks from my childhood home. We have frequented this establishment for over 12+ years and have never had a bad experience.
We have many mexican friends who rave about the authenticity of the entrees and enjoy a strong margarita. My favorite is their seafood enchiladas. Awesome.

You won't be disappointed with this local restaurant!
