Well decorated and pleasant staff. Had a great lunch time meal. Chips and salsa were provided like most places as an appetizer, both had very good taste. Meals were served quickly and the staff were quick to attend to needs. Had a great meal and would return without hesitation.

This is the place that replaced El Torito on Sunrise Boulevard. I wasn't sure what to expect, but we went to El Torito quite a bit and were willing to take a chance on another Mexican food spot. We liked it a lot. The food is good, the service is good, and the portions are big. Lots of choices - big menu. Bring an appetite when you go to El Tapatio!

Great for families too if you must!

The ambience of this place is awesome. The food is very good- the best in the Sacramento area. The Chicken molcajete is my favorite dish. It's a must try.

This place also offers Sunday brunch which is by far the most amazing set up I have ever experienced. Me and my family always look forward coming to dine here. I highly recommend this restaurant.

I really enjoyed this restaurant. This was a step above most Mexican restaurants I have visited: Key Highlights:

-Drinks: The margaritas were excellent. Perfect tart and adequate tequila. Most Mexican restaurants I have visited are lacking one or both of those features.

-Food: I had the carne asada and was really impressed. The meet was cooked perfectly, and came with a whole sliced avocado. Also complimented by sauteed vegetables that were perfectly done. This dish was probably my favorite part of the experience.

-Service: Mario was our server and went far above and beyond. He was very attentive, but also funny and charming. His hospitality topped off the experience excellently.
