“We love this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2010

I was surprised to read the negative reviews on this one. We love this place. Good portions and very good food. I think it's been slow getting off the ground for this place, but word's getting out amongst the locals. We have dinner here probably once a week....and we're German! I spend LOTS of time in downtown San Antonio and have been to many a mexican food place....this place is better then most of 'em! It's nothing real fancy, but it's clean and it's GOOD. Even our picky-eater toddler requests this place....

“Not Good”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2010

It's suprising to see a place serving food at such poor quality in business. I was with a large group that ordered a variety, nachos, cheese enchiladas, beef tacos, taquitos, and everything was greasy and bland. What they served as guacamole was a flavorless, unappetising green blob on the plate. The cheese enchiladas were worse than the frozen dinner you get at the grocery store. My husband couldn't finish his tacos because the grease saturated the taco shells. Don't waste your time. Support local restaurants that serve quality & tasteful fare!

“Clean, Family friendly Mexican Restaurant near Faust Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2009

El Tapatio on Seguin near The Faust Hotel was a complete surprise. We have been trying out all the Mexican restaurants in town and were delighted to find El Tapatio right in the center of town. It was clean and bright, and the prices were very reasonable, and the servings were HUGE! And best of all the food was very good! It is a family run restaurant and we would recommend it for families.
