The decor reminds me of authentic Mexican restaurants I used to go to in New Mexico and across the border into Mexico. The staff feels like family and is very considerate. The food is excellent with a wide selection and some American foods as well if you have someone who doesn't like Mexican. We are repeat customers at this El Tapatio location, which we enjoy better than some other El Tapatio restaurants we've visited. My parents have gone there on our recommendation when they are in the Portland area - they live in Salem - and they are repeat customers now too.
Fun and Friendly – Food is excellent! Real food, NOT the same old stuff, all covered with cheese, that all looks the same color and melts together in the plate. Atmosphere of a neighborhood restaurant, (which it is) and doesn't have the feel of those large chain joints. Drinks are not watered down; yummy Margaritas. We always celebrate family birthdays there and everyone has a great time. The food arrives promptly and the wait-staff knows what they are doing. Prompt service, always a smile. Never had any type of problem. . . and we've been going there for many years.
Yummy, yummy, I've got love in my tummy. – I like this restaurant. The food and service are always great! They have prompt seating and are always kind. They've been there for a long time and I hope they continue to be. I will surely be a customer for a long time!
Favorite Mexican food for 20+ years – I absolutely love El Tapatio! The food is so tasty, authentic, and usually very quick to arrive at the table. Always prompt seating and friendly service. Overall this is a great restaurant that I still think tops all the other Mexican restaurants I have tried, and I will continue to eat there with friends and family on a regular basis.
no reason to go – bland, bad food; horrible service (which means long waits to take your order, angry staff who plop things down/spill stuff); watered-down drinks...avoid at all costs.
