It isn't what it used to be. It's just average, and a little expensive for what you get compared to some other Mexican restaurants similar to this one. It isn't even named "El Tapatio" any longer. Just "Tapatio".

Always great food and service. Lots of free chips and salsa. The margaritas are good and every dish we have eaten there has been good to excellent.

I always go to El Tapatio when I am feeling depressed so in essence I eat there quite a bit! I always try to imagine myself as the character Marlon Brando played in Appaloosa.I wonder if they serve Pulque, but the stuff looks pretty harsh to drink so I will stick with the Strawberry Lemonade and pretend that it is...

We eat out every night so we think we know good food or not. Unfortunately we always order the same things that we have grown to love. We switched to Tapatio for Mexican food about three years ago and have never had a bad meal. The staff there is always friendly too. The price is very reasonable too.

This is one of my go-to restaurants when I am in the area. It is good, simple Mexican food. You can't beat the price or the service.

The food was good and the service was great. Surprised to be charged for the second bowl of chips and salsa, especially since our bill was $90 and there were 4 of us. I would understand this extra charge if we had sat and ate bowls of chips and salsa and not ordered food, but that was not the case.... More

I did not think that such bad food as I experienced today would still be possible in 2016 - an eating experience so bad that my stomach still hurts, five hours later. You would think a chain restaurant, even a small local (?) chain could not, on paper, survive for years if the quality of the meals were as abysmal... More

I used to live within walking distance and came here often. Then I heard the original kitchen staff left to open Agave Azul in Gresham. True or not, there was a major shift in the quality of food. I have given this place several tries because I am often in the area. Each time seems worse than the last. It... More

People joke about Oregon "woos mouth" when it comes to spicy Mexican food. Let them come here. I've lived in Mexico, and this is nothing like the cuisine down south. You get a lot of food for the money, but sadly, I won't be back.

Good Mexican food with standard menu. Staff friendly. Service a little slow. Background music terrible (country western, grunge, annoying).
