We visited on a Saturday afternoon. We were surprised by the great service. The cheese dip is really good. We both ordered the special dinner. The tamales are really good and I liked the enchilada. If I had anything I did not like we're the refried beans but that may be my taste, they seemed bland to me. Overall great... More

I guess this is part of a chain, or at least a regional chain. I have eaten at them in Missouri and Oklahoma. The food has been consistently good. The burrito, rice, beans, taco, salsa and cheese dip were all as good, if not better, as any Tex-Mex chain restaurant I have eaten at. The service was a little slow,... More

My wife and I are addicted to good Tex-Mex which she prepares at home often. El Tapatio met our needs for our Mexican food fix at a very reasonable price. Food was served hot and quickly.

We are not in the area often, but this was always a favorite spot to eat. It was okay, but not usual greatness. We went on Cinco de Mayo hoping for some specials, but couldn't even get a strawberry or peach margarita (on menu) and had to settle for lime. The fajitas for two order was more than Big Daddy...

Food good but music was too loud. So loud we were unable to talk so I advise not sitting in the bar area. The cheese dip was a white queso and was great just a tad watery.

Always a great time. Pitcher of Margaritas always gets the party started. Food is delicious, drinks are great. Can't beat the place. Salsa is chunky and amazing

Have to say this is one of the best Mexican restaurants I have ever been to. Friendly staff, incredible food, and reasonable prices. Appears to just be a hole in the wall, but well worth the stop!

For the price of all the entrees, it's not bad. Definitely not gourmet, but has a more authentic feel than most tex mex restaurants.
