This is a counter order place where you get a number and they deliver your food to the table (very quickly). Many choices of meat fillings for tacos, burritos, salads, etc. Tacos are street style with very good tortillas. The pastor filling was delicious. The...More

Family owned and operated. Great real Mexican food. Gets a bit crazy on Monday evening with their specials, so perhaps more approachable at other times. Everything is great.

Most authentic taqueria in the valley. Everything I've tried I've loved but the Al Pastor tacos are my BFF❤️❤️.

My ultimate thing here is the FABULOUS lengua (tongue) tacos. Yummmm. They are street taco size so be sure you order 3 if you're hungry, 4 if your starving. Really great Mexican market, too.

Went to La Tapatia at a friend's suggestion. La Tapatia is a great taqueria. Wonderful selection of meats. Wonderful tortillas. Very good tacos, refried beans, and rice. The carnitas were quite good in flavor but uneven in quality. The carnitas was more consistent.More
