Very good authentic Mexican food where the locals go. Reasonable prices -- all cash though. No checks, credit or debit cards. And refill drinks are 75 cents each. Always busy, so the food is fresh and tasty.

No matter when I go, there's a line. Sometimes out the door! I don't mind because that just means it's good. I've been going g for years. The carne asada super burrito is my go-to. I also LOOOOOVE their Agua de melon. Fresh and delicious. Cash only. Zero ambiance. Call ahead and go to the front of the line

We have had lunch at Taqueria El Tapatio a few times while visiting family. The tacos & burritos are very good! This restaurant is cash only & the line can be long at lunchtime.

*CASH ONLY* They do have an ATM in the restaurant. Most things on the menu were between $5-$10 dollars, including many of the combination plates.

Totally authentic Mexican restaurant and reasonably priced. I went on a Sunday, and the place was packed with families dressed in their "Sunday Best". They have about 20 small booths inside, and 12 tables outside on the patio.

I ordered the spicy pork super burrito ($7.25), and it was quite large. They have a station that has 4-5 sauces on it (seemingly homemade) and complementary warmed tortilla chips.

They also have a nice selection of fresh juices, and I watched them juice carrots while I waited for my order.

This little gem is in Trolley Plaza hidden BEHIND McDonald's and Walgreen's in a shopping plaza, so don't give up looking for it - it's worth it.
