I love this place, almost everything about it is great. The best fajitas I have ever had. OH MAN, and the chile verde, it is so good, you'll definitely have a hard time finding any as good, and maybe never any that's better.

You just can’t beat el tap for the price. The pollo el tap is our favorite then the carne Asada soft tacos. It’s economical. The salsa verde is made fresh along with the chips and tortillas.

We always like trying new places and will definitely be going back to this one. Great service during a busy lunch on a Sunday. Beef fajitas were a little bland and overcooked but the other entrees, chips/salsa/queso, sopapillas were great.

Ate dinner and my husband had steak fajitas. We had to ask for the tortillas several times before he received them. Our waiter was not attentive. The food was good but service poor.

Immediately seated by friendly wait staff. The food was above average and the staff kept our glass full. The air conditioning probably wasn’t working because it was very hot inside the restaurant. It needs furniture updates. Will return to this restaurant.

El Tapatio is one of our favorites. We eat there every Sunday after morning church service. The staff is very friendly. The food is great and fast!
