We couldn't get refills. My chimichanga wasn't cooked . I told the server and he just took it away and didn't say or do anything about it. No one liked their food. The glass of sweet tea was good. We live in Branson . So I guess I expected a little more , like edible food and refills . Based... More

Stopped there for lunch on our way home from Chicago and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I had two tamales, rice and beans which is normally a lunch plate for me, which leaves me satisfied but not full. The meal proved to be too much since the tamales were so big! Usually when tamales are that size, they are mostly masa... More

My son and I had lunch during the normal lunch period. My son had the kid's taco with beans and rice while I ordered the veggie quesadilla. We also ordered the queso dip. First, the chips and salsa were standard fare. The salsa had some subtle flavor that made it take a little italian. Oregano, maybe? It wasn't terrible but... More

In general, I prefer the one located in Cape. However, this one was decent. The food was quick. The building itself felt "dirty". The food was good and the service was good.

We had never eaten at El Tapatio but took a chance. The service was great and the food was awesome. We will eat there again if we are in Skeston, MO..

If you are use to authentic Mexican or Tex/Mex not a good choice! Clean, good service - just met our hunger- not our first or second choice, Lambert's was to long a wait for our destinations.

We stopped here on the way from Memphis. Some of the best Mexican good we have eaten. We stop here now every time we are driving down 55. If you like Mexican food this is a great place to stop.

I decided to try Mexican food this pass through Sikeston. So, I selected El Tapatio. My service dog was welcomed and I was seated right away. The chips as salsa arrived quickly. The chips are unremarkable, but the salsa was excellent. It was spicy but not too hot. I liked it quite a lot. My server arrived shortly thereafter and... More
