We were very disappointed when Cancun Mexican Restaurant closed last fall, as it had become our favorite Mexican restaurant in the Portland area. So we were thrilled to learn that a new Mexican restaurant had recently opened in the same location. Our pleasure multiplied when we recognized a friendly familiar face or two from the former establishment.
We’ve tried Los Tapatios several times now, and think the food is even better than Cancun’s was. Everything we’ve had has been delicious, but this place really works magic with pork dishes. The carnitas and the pork burritos are incredible.
There are some good lunch deals available, served daily from 11:00-3:00, along with a selection of kids’ meals, vegetarian dishes, and a well-stocked bar. The frozen margaritas are great – and BIG!
For excellent Mexican food served in a friendly, welcoming environment, it would be hard to beat Los Tapatios.
