I'm originally from Oklahoma. I lived there for 21 years... I'm 45 now, and I still visit a few times per year, and I can confidently state the following: Oklahoma just doesn't have REALLY good Mexican restaurants that aren't chains. This was no different. The service was fine; the food was average, and the margaritas were cheap (which is good)... More

We went here after I purchased a restaurant.com certificate. We were seated promptly and our server was good. The food was a little slow coming out, but everything tastes good. When I got ready to check out the cashier was horribly unpleasant. It was as though I was bothering her by trying to check out. She treated the couple who... More

This is one of three Mexican sit down restaurants in Stillwater (they all have the same menu but this is the cheapest of the three). I'm not a fan. Everything is Americanized with loads of cheese and lack of onions or flavor. I will admit though that they are the place to go to get a cheap $14 (I think)... More

Grew up in New Mexico and travel to Mexico at least 1-2 times a year, so odds are I'm spoiled. El Tap is probably about as good as you'll get in Stillwater for Mexican food, but there are so many better options for grub in town. This is about as Mexican as Taco Bell

I'm not a Mexican food lover in general, but when I do go for some, this is where I go. My friends from NM who know REAL Mexican food, not the general Tex-Mex gunk served nearly everywhere in Oklahoma and Texas, say this is truly authentic Mexican. And they are definitely Mexican food lovers. The wait staff is fast and... More

I can't get past the price for three shrimp tacos at 30% more than better sit-down places in Tulsa (like San Marcos). They only serve 1 tortilla per taco - I guess ebcause 2 woudl completely overwhelm the filling Mr Taco on N Lewis in Tulsa serves twice the filling for less than half the price (and include 2 tortillas...

The Wife and I ate here for the 1st time. I had 3 taco's which were just as good as the ones I had in Mexico on a vacation there. Wife had enchaladas which she liked very much. Everything was hot and fresh. They give you chips and salsa while you wait for your food. Service was good as well.... More

This place has the best Mexican food in Stillwater. My brother always takes me here every time I come to visit. I usually gain a few pounds from eating all of the good food that is available in Stillwater. If you like authentic Mexican food, then you cannot go wrong by eating here. Enjoy!!

My husband and I have our office close to El Tapatio on Perkins Rd., it's quick and easy to get there for a quick bite. For a while now we've overlooked items missing from our orders but today 5/6/2013, we decided to have lunch out on the Patio, not only did they forget my beans on my order but they... More

You can beat the staff and the food! Great place to eat even If you are on a budget. The staff is super friendly and the service is always very fast.
