Excellent flavors of Mexico, our waiter was above excellent, he took all our order all 20 of them, food all arrived one after the other with no mistakes and then he gave us each a bill which was excellent as well with every order perfect. I was so busy visiting I forgot to get his name.

Excellent after all these years. I have been eating at Tapatios for 20 years at the Memorial Ave location. They offer authentic Mexican food in ample portions at great prices with very friendly, attentive service.
Tiffany Johnson
We came here on a whim while driving I-4 Eastbound, and oh wow I'm so glad we did. Not only was the service wonderful, the food came out lightning fast for a restaurant and it was DELICIOUS!
David Ortiz
We went there for the first time as a family and everything was great from the prices, courteous professional staff, the menu, and the family atmosphere.
Osvaldo Santiago
Been going since they opened..... Keep saying I'm ordering something other than the Special Dinner but just can't do it. It's too good! Not to mention the chips and salsa(s) hot and mild mixed(yum) are the best. I've never been disappointed! The serving staff is always attentive and very accomodating with special orders. Highly Recommend!
