I have a lot of food allergies, and generally find that Mexican restaurants are very accommodating. Unfortunately, they usually use too much salt and kill the true flavors. El Tapatio gets a thumbs up .... great atmosphere & Bianca, our server, was darling!

My favorite to order is the chicken nachos with their fresh fruit juices. Melon is the best juice! Price is great too and they give good portions. Would definitely recommend!
