Terrible Service!!!! I will never go back after my experience going to Tapatio. The service was horrible we sat there waiting for our food for one hour and started noticing that other people who came after us were getting there food before us. We called the waiter and asked him what happened to our food and apparently he had forgotten... More

Came here for lunch on a Saturday. The food was fresh and delicious. I got the tacos al pastor and they were beautifully plated and tasted even better. Service was fast and friendly. I would recommend Tapatio to anyone!

I had lunch here yesterday. We were in a private room and had a single waitress, so I really can't comment on the service. This place is in a relatively new strip mall just off I-70 at the 18th Street exit, so it's very easy to get to. As others have commented, the place is very clean, the menu is... More

I stop here a couple of times a month for lunch. The food is reasonably priced, the service is very attentive and the Mexican Food is good. Of course corn chips are brought to the table when you sit down and everything looks clean - you get the feeling that there is pride of ownership while you are there, too.... More

dropped by here for lunch recently with some business associates. Service was a little slow but once they got rolling everything was fine. Plenty of free chips/salsa for starters. Good lunch specials priced between $5 and $7. Ingredients fresh and the burritos were very tasty. All in all a very nice Mexican food place.

I've been here about 5 times for the authentic style food. Some people love authentic, some people do not. This time we had a really great server who was right on top of things. If you think you're going in for something amazing or amazing service... this is not the place for you. It's really just an okay restaurant that... More

I have been there a few times and the service is very inattentive. They all wear sharp uniforms but the organization ends there. The table next to us walked out because the staff served us before they even took their order... And they were there before us.... Our server walked by me several times while I tried to wave her...

One of the best Mexican Grills here in the Kansas City area. My first time there and the food was great and service was excellent. Just right off I-70.
