“Excellent”
Reviewed September 17, 2012 via mobile

So many choices. The staff were friendly and the food delicious. This was not you typical Mexican food. Oysters, steak, standard Mexican fare. We had two for on draft beers and a nic walk bact to the hotel. Decorations both inside and out were interesting.

“Best Mexican in town”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

This is a relatively small place, and rivals Aztecas, the only other place in town to get GREAT mexican food. Food comes out fast, so it's easy to do lunch here too.

“Huge portions”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

This was just what we were looking for - so the five stars reflect the overall experience of a casual Mexican restaurant with great service and a big selection of dishes. Perhaps quantity trumped quality, but it was very yummy and the friendly service made for a very pleasant evening.

“worth a try”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

Spent the night in Fruita at the super 8 and had dinner at El Tapatio across the street. My husband said it was the best chili relleno he's ever had!
