We love Mexican food and have searched high and low for authentic GOOD Mexican food! We finally found it today in Kissimmee! This place is wonderful and the service was awesome! When I saw the Mexican water bar, I knew we had hit pay dirt as this is a sign of authenticity. I had their steak tacos with cilantro and... More

This restaurant was popping when I got there on a Sunday night. There were families and singles, very lovely and diverse crowd. I ordered the vegetarian fajitas with corn tortillas. The tortillas were piping hot, the salsa was on point, and the veggie offerings well done and not greasy. Service was quick and friendly. Great place!

Ate here twice during our vacation. Casual, comfortable atmosphere. Started with complimentary warm chips and salsa. We both had the house margaritas. Enjoyed my steak fajitas with all the accompaniments, prefer the homemade corn tortillas. My husband had the dos amigos - beef burrito & chicken enchilada which were also very good. Sopapillas were not the puff pastry that I... More

Here now and must say we were pleasantly surprised to find this place. Friendly, fast, great prices, but best of all the food!! The mariachis were a plus and unexpected. Good place to come with family and kids. Full bar too. Had a steak gordita and tacos al pastor and chicken. Good salsa and chips here.

The greeter was lovely and helpful on my two visits. The waiter was so nice that I asked for and got him on my second visit. The food was superb.

Stopped in on a whim after seeing the sign, and we were very happy we made the stop! Great food and atmosphere, and the wait staff were quick, and the food came out so fast that it legitimately took us off guard. Ask to try the spicier salsa when being seated. The standard salsa that comes with the complimentary chips... More

We were all hungry for Mexican food, we passed several restaurants on the way here, but had read reviews. We were not disappointed, and realized this is where all the natives come for good Mexican food. I was not feeling well so had their beef and vegetable soup. It was wonderful and not what I expected at all. The broth... More

So, we had the Queso Fundido for the appetizer. I thought it was great, was a bit too greasy for the wife though. I ordered a Dos Equis Amber, received a Dos Equis instead, but in hindsight I'm not too surprised because when our waitress (who was extremely attentive) was going over the beer list to a table next to...

Can't understand all the excellent reviews for El Tapatio because I've never ever had such a tasteless meal in ANY Mexican restaurant. When I ordered, the server pointed out that the sauce was going to be slightly hot and "Was that ok?". But when it arrived, not only was it not hot, you couldn't taste it all and only later... More
