FABULOUS! – GET THE MARGARITAS MMMMM THE FROZED STRAWBERRY IS THE BEST OUT THERE. THE SALSA IS WONDERFUL TOO!!!!!
best seafood and service in town,the crab legs are amazing!! – if u want a night of mariachi and really good food your in the right spot!!! i tried the crab legs and the bucket of coronitas, it threw red lobster in check 'mexican style' the taste is amazing!!! they also have a new location in golden, the views are breathtaking and the food and service is great i cant wait for summer to be here so i can enjoy a cold margarita on their patio!!!
Not too tasty – Overall it was fun atmosphere but food was tasteless. I would suggest asking your server to flare it up.
Best Mexican Seafood in Colorado – El Tapitio is one of those places that has become a must for all my trips to Denver. Having eatten at most Mexican restaurants in Denver, El Tapitio has by far the best seafood selection with great quality. The fried Red Snapper is to die for. If you have never eatten the skin on any fish ever, you will not be disappointed how the Red Snapper is fried. The only fried fish skin that I have or will ever eat. On weekends they have a Mariachi band that gives the restaurant a great ambience.
Above the Rest! – This is by far the best authentic Mexican food you can find in Lakewood. Their margaritas are awesome and their salsa is full of fresh ingredients. Will be going back soon and telling others about it!!
Tops in Margaritaville! – These beauties are served in softball-sized hemispheres and are the best yet! Kiddie bar imitations cannot compare. Food is authentic (as evidenced by the authentic Mexicans filling the place on weekends) and Mexican candies at cashiers stand are a special treat to be tried.
Authentic and Local – If you want real Mexican food from a local family, go to El Tapatios. Expect to wait on week-end nights. Be patient and enjoy the mariachi band (week-ends only). If you speak no Spanish, you may find yourself with a new waiter after you are seated.
Enjoy the ambiance, the friendly waiters, the music, & the food. TVs on the Spanish channels in several corners.
