“Nice Surprise”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

My husband and I were in Vernonia several days for flight training. After having a few just so-so meals, we stumbled in to El Tapatio. It's a modest little place but the service was a great and the food was delicious. If you like authentic Mexican food than you will love this place. Expansive menu, fast service, friendly staff. I especially enjoyed the fish taco, light and delicious. In fact, we liked it so much that we returned the next night just for desert. The fried ice cream did not disappoint. There is no air conditioning but that is true for many of the restaurants in this area. Temperatures are mild in the summer and outdoor dinning is desirable.
