We've dined here several times. Service is timely, and very friendly. Food is just good. Salsa is very bland. Nice place but, there are better in town.

Juan was the most amazing server - five stars! We ordered fajitas to share - huge even shared. The chips were hot and fresh, and the salsa was tasty. Very reasonable. Like that it is locally owned. Will surely come back. Gracias, amigos!

Not great. There are several better Mexican restaurants in Astoria. The food was just mediocre, dry beans and easily could have been better,

We inquired with hotel staff where we could find good Mexican food and they suggested El Tapatio". You walk upstairs and enter a room full of color and good aromas. Sat in a comfy booth looking out to the bay. Ordered a Cadillac Matgarita( yes full bar) which at first was very sweet and just mix, our waitress brought me... More

Hi. So, if I want Mexican food and don't want to drive, this is where I go. I've eaten here about six times and the food is very straight-forward, exactly what you ask for, no bells-or-whistles, no crazy surprises, and portions are large.

Margaritas Drinks are FULL off ice.very weak. Told the waitress she didn't offer me a new drink just kinda stood there? Very bland food basically overpriced taco bell. Everything is canned and or frozen nothing is fresh. Nice decor but not coming back for just that I need good food.

Wasn't impressed. Ordered a margarita, received a rotten line as garnishment. The food had a sweet seasoning to it, didn't care for it. Waitress couldn't count change back properly. Wouldn't come back.

I had lunch here the first day of attending a mid-week training seminar and had the trio of seafood enchilada's. It was AMAZING. You could taste the freshness of the seafood -- and that's not easy to do with mexican food. VERY tasty and TONS of seafood in each enchilada. It was SO good (and so reasonably priced) that I...
