The food was traditional with the usual selection. The mixed fajita was excellent but the chicken enchilada was a little dry but tasty. The empanadas were the best we have had. They were crispy tasty and filled with beef. This was our third time here...More

On a busy road not great neighborhood you find La Tapatia. The food was excellent, well worth the visit. Its a small restaurant and fill up especially on the weekends. One of our favorite Mexican restaurant. You wont be dissatisfied.

I love everything about La Tapatia! The sangria is a must have. I ordered the special seafood fajitas. Out of this world delicious. Everything is super fresh and full of flavor! You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. The prices can't be beat!

Still good. Been a few years since we were there. Added items to menu and raised prices. Was a best-kept secret in Asbury, but the place was booming on a THU night. Better food than other places in Asbury, and full-service bar. Drinks are big....More
