    Good little Mexican place. Food was good. The guacamole was really tasty.

    The atmosphere was great. I love the privacy in the booth. I got a vegetarian fajita plate. It was both feeling and well prepared. The price was good. The whole experience was pleasant.

    I used to visit this place quite a bit back about four or five years ago. Back then I thought it was really good.... but now I'm wondering if that's not because I was doing a hell of a lot of drinking back then. Nonetheless, I decided to stop off on my way home from work because it was a quick on and off the interstate and I was craving some Mexican food. Boy oh boy was I disappointed. To begin with, the chips could have been better. I think they were bordering on being stale. The salsa was actually good and the service was ok. I ordered a number 15 which is a burrito, a tamale and an enchilada topped with your choice of cheese sauce or red sauce. I opted for the red sauce. The waiter brought my food really quick (probably to quick) and warned me that the plate was hot as they usually do. While it was pretty darn warm, I wouldn't say it was hot. I could have easily handled it without a pot holder. Unfortunately the food was about the same temperature. I dug into the enchilada immediately and it was barely warm as was the burrito. The tamale was a bit warmer than both, possibly because it was in the middle. As for flavor, thank God for the red sauce cuz it was about the only thing that had any. The tamale had a little bit of flavor but the burrito and the enchilada were nothing more than ground beef wrapped in a corn or flour tortilla. I found no onions, no cilantro, nothing! I'm not even sure the beef was seasoned. Just ground beef and either a corn or flour tortilla and that was it. I think Taco Bell would've tasted better. Huge disappointment...... 👎

    The staff was friendly and professional, the food came out really quick and it was good. The place was clean and it had a real Mexican look and feel to it. I recommend El Tapatio.
