Chicken enchiladas and rice very good, probably best I've had. Chips fresh and warm with great salsa.

We have frequented El Tapatio a few times now, and always have enjoyed the dining experience. One of the most friendly places where the staff are genuine and enjoy holding conversation with you. If you enjoy Mariachi, the band plays on Friday evenings.
