Awesome food and customer service. Came to Rhode Island from NJ and gave this place a try and it was absolutely amazing.
We are from out of town and wanted Mexican food. This place was amazing!! Food was great, margarita was yummy and service was wonderful. Would go back when I’m in town again.
Service was great and the food was even better! Best place I've been in awhile. Definitely will be returning.
Excellent portions, good flavor and atmosphere.
Lovely food & speedy service. Freshly made and yummy.
I always on the lookout for good vegan/vegetarian options, which are few and far between in South county Rhode island. The vegetarian verde burrito is simply awesome! Unfortunately their refried beans are not vegetarian.
Greatly enjoyed the veggie burrito and the trio combo. Pleasant atmosphere and quick service! Would definitely recommend! Went back a second time for steak and shrimp fajitas! Love this place! Wish we had one where I live!
An authentic Mexican restaurant with a solid vegetarian section on their menu, HUGE portions for fair prices, and very prompt service
Nice restaurant with decent food, generous portions and an attentive staff. Somewhat limited parking, but additional parking nearby.
After a nice walk toward the beach and back we were ready to eat something for lunch. Finally stopped st El Tapatio, I have driven by this Mexican spot for years and never came in. What was I thinking I love Mexican food and love chimichangas which they have, I always get something with rice and refried beans. I found my place for Mexican, after a upsetting dinner a couple days ago and condessa in west Warwick. The guac at el tapatio was much better.
The staff speaks fluent Spanish! Enjoyed sitting at the bar. Good selection of tequila. Ordered some food and it was overall a very pleasant experience!
Awesome selection of tequila and the food is plentiful and good
Absolutely the most authentic Mexican food, great service, great atmosphere for adult and children diners
Oddly enough the food is amazing
This place has authentic Mexican food and all the wait staff also speak Spanish. The carne asada is top notch, as is the Pollo Mexicana. The burritos are huge. When they aren't super busy the time from order to eat is very short, good or bad if you want another margarita. Would recommend, they also do carry out and kids menus (and crayons.. many places at this quality level don't do that these days as much it seems).
Food was great and came out of the kitchen fast. Bathroom was clean. Took a long time to get someone's attention to get refills or our check processed though.
Was pleasantly surprised. Thought it would your run of the mill fake Mexican food but I was wrong. Food was excellent and huge portions. Reasonably priced too. Check them out!
If you are looking for really good Mexican food this is the place. The price is good taking in consideration the serving size. We were a party of five, each ordered a drink, a main course and desserts and we payed a reasonable amount in comparison with other restaurants. I had the Margarita Presidente...sooooo good! Complimentary chips and salsa?? Nice!! Food was very good as well, the desserts...churros can never go wrong, flan and "helado frito" (fried ice-cream) delicious!!! 100% recommended. Great service!!
Excellent food. A little slow on service
Everytime it's good lots of food
Good food and extremely fast service! Could not complain!
Great food great prices and great service.
Pretty good mexican food for a decent price. The portions are big but nothing fancy.
Service will always be the best here, but the food has gone down since when they first opened. Always the best margaritas and chips and salsa though. Get the queso and snack away while you drink at the bar.
Good ambient and food but a bit spicy for my taste. For those who like spicy food and from scratch piña colada w/ a good punch of alcohol in it, this is your place.
Great authentic food and excellent margaritas. Extremely hard working family. Pleased every time ☺
Good Mexican food. Large menu.
Poor service, great food
Aweful. Worst mexican food I ever had. Never had coleslaw at a Mexican restaurant especially heated in the oven, nasty. A steak burrito fajita with only 5 small pieces of the chewiest meat I ever had. Thought I broke a thooth. Service wasn't the best either. If could give this place 0 star as a rating it would still be to good. No soup for you!!
Food and atmosphere were excellent as usual. The young lady that seated/served us was very friendly and personable.
The food is great, service is good, we come here often.
We love this place. Great food and awesome margaritas! They bring you warm chips and 2 kinds of salsa. My kids love the tomato based one and the adults love the spicy one. Port Carnitas is our favorite dish to share. Yum!
Great food and service good price and portions for the money
Although customer service needs improvement its not terrible by any means. This restaurant has an ample menu for the bold or the first time cultural food eater. It helps if someone in your party can read Spanish
I have eaten here probably 6 times. I usually get a burrito. Food is always good, and the service is good also. Not the "absolute best" Mexican restaurant I have ever been to, but it is good. I like the tortilla chips they serve before the meal, the seats are comfortable, the restaurant is not too loud. I don't get the people who are so negative about this spot. It has always been good to me, and I will continue to eat there.
Love the food and the staff
Visiting from Brooklyn and the food was gorgeously delicious. Portions of course are large and shareable ,but with so many tasty options you'll have to go home with a doggy bag. The staff was very friendly and attentive and the establishment was clean. Give them a try, especially after a morning light house cruise!
Awesome food and drinks, service is always great and friendly
Not the best margaritas, but great food and fast service!
Standard cheap eats mexican.
Great food and drinks and service!! Can’t beat it!
As good as you'll get in RI for Mexican, this isn't Texas after all. The food is fresh, authentic and tasty served in a clean and friendly environment at reasonable prices. If you want better Mexican, you probably need to get closer to Mexico.
I go to as many Mexican restaurants as possible to explore the best ones and this is by far the best! Fri. The margaritas are perfect and homemade not the mix or sour mix like most. The salsa , guac, and Verde salsa are are superb . I will be back soon and repeatedly :)
The best local Mexican restaurant. Not up to Texas, but decent.
The service was grumpy, seemingly unhappy with no warmth. I felt more like we were imposing. The food was mediocre. I had the vegetarian burrito and it had an odd taste; like dish soap.
Good food, fast service, friendly staff!
Friendly staff! Great food
Food was delicious and plentiful. Service was very good.
Good food with nice atmosphere.
I like the atmosphere, the way the restaurant looks in the outside and inside. The greetings were great and so welcoming, the service was great and the food was serve within 15 or 20 minutes when ordered. Excellent Restaurant.
Great margarita, waitress brought water with it, without needing to be told, that's a sign of good service in my book, guac was excellent. I'll be back.
Food and staff are great had the camarones a la Diabla no other place serves them like this place
Good food great atmosphere and a nice location.
Fresh Salsa with just the right kick. Twice this week... my husband's choice!
Pretty good food, and the portions are pretty large. So far it's the best Mexican restaurant around I've been too
Great local Mexican location which huge portions and great drink menu.
Not all mexicn food has cumin!!!! They put cumin in everything, too bad.
I did enjoy my food but the service wasn't the greatest. Not sure if it's because they were just understaffed. I will try again but if the service is the same, it will be my last.
Best Mexican restaurant in Rhode Island. I highly recommend it.
Great food. Good portions
We have been eating here for about 7 years. After living in Phoenix for 31 years I need good Mexican food. We live in Westerly and drive here to eat Mexican food because it is authentic and they serve generous portions for both lunch and dinner. Not quite as spicy as we like but very flavorful. Try the combination plates!
i consider my self a great conneiuseiur of Mexican cuisine.I would rate this one 1000 stars if i could.
Lousy service. Also, the ground beef was worse than Taco Bell's.
Very good food and drinks. Service just took a little while.
Great Mexican food. Good service an good prices! Will go back!!!!
I can't fairly rate this place, because I didn't eat. I went with a party of about 10 people. The service was excellent. Our drinks are continuously replenished. The place was clean, including the bathroom.
The food was bland. Not a good representation of mexican food
Good food at a great price
Great food, great service. I had the Mexican Trio, so good. Rice and pinto beans, Portuguese shrimp and steak & chicken. Love their fresh salsa and good chips. Always good food. Awesome. Crazy busy on Cinco de Mayo ( 1 hr and 15 min wait), but on a regular Sat night you might wait 15 min. Outdoor dining on a warm night!
Great real Mexican food!
Tamal is very good. A lot of food, family, nice Margaritas. It looks totally different from inside. Warm corn chips at the beginning.
Great Mexican food, by far the best we've found south of Providence. Good service, food comes out fast. Pretty cheap. What more could you want?
Great food, fresh and delicious!! All authentic!!
Always great food and good servers.
Great food, friendly staff, quick service, servings are big, lots of rice and beans, you will be satisfied. The place is spacious and doesn't get too crowded. Definately recommend the "Camarones al ajillo"
Authentic Mexican food. Delicious!
My absolute favorite
The food here is really good. In the prices are just right so it doesn't cost much to go out for dinner. The atmosphere is very nice inside also. The fajitas are really large for a single order. Looking forward to go back again soon.
Food and service was fantastic!
Needed a last minute dinner when passing through town. Decided to make a stop at El Tapatio. So glad to did! Great, quick Mexican! Everyone in the family enjoyed their dinner. Food came super fast and prices were great!
This is definitely my favorite restaurant in wockford (North Kingstown). Well priced, perfect atmosphere, and of course amazing Mexican food.
Loved it. Flavors were right on. Great value.
Had a quick lunch here and it was absolutely fantastic. Came out with chips and a tasty salsa as soon as we sat down. We both got burritos and they were what you want in a burrito. Service was excellent, as well. Don't make a mistake and drive past this little gem. Highly recommend!
Tasty regular Mexican food, served amazingly quickly (entrees on the table within ten minutes of our walking in the door, on a Saturday night).Restaurant clean, but ambience nothing special. Plenty of on-site parking.
Great place with lovely and authentic Mexican food. We had a great time and would choose the restaurant again and again...
Great Mexican food and great service love the place
My favorite Mexican restaurant. Food is consistently excellent and very reasonably priced. Always busy, but seldom wait more than 5 minutes to be seated.
Not bad. We found this place on our way to the less-than-impressive Air Force One Experience. Good chips and salsa. Quick service.
After spending a rainy day down Matunuck we were looking for a place to stop and eat on our way home. This place was it. The food was good and the wait staff was excellent.
A delicious meal was had by all, and the nachos!!!!
Friendly staff. Food was not as good, salsas tasted like jar salsas, beans were canned beans. Our enchiladas and quesadillas were stuffed with American cheese :( in Mexico we never ever use the American cheese to prepare those dishes. There are other white cheeses that you could use instead.
Really enjoy the food here. Good menu and a great lunch or dinner place. Never too busy at lunch time.
I LOVE this place! Great food... Good drinks! For you pokemon go people it is also a poke stop
My go to restaurant for Mexican food. Yummie food, lots of flavors, and their drinks are to die for!!!!! Excellent service, good comes out excellent and in a timely manner. Great place to bring the family or go with friends.
Good food. Great service. Finally found a Mexican restaurant in New England that offers real pico de gallo!
Stopped in for drinks and a snack. Enjoyed the food and the service was good. Shared the Tapatio Sampler platter and it was more than enough for three.
They're really fast to bring out the food during lunch! Im always satisfied! Margaritas are on point also with plenty of options.
Decent local Mexican food. Spiced down for the locals sadly.
Nothin. Wrong with cheap Mexican food for lunch here! If you want to leave with a full stomach and a heavy wallet this may be the place for you. That being said I wouldn't classify this as high end dining. The service is always superb and the food is always hot but the flavors are standard for Mexican food and don't stand out against some of my more memorable meals. Now don't get me wrong, I love to come to this place and I don't think I've ever left even thinking about wanting food for several hours! If you want something cheap with generous portions, friendly service and a clean environment I can recommend El Tapatio, but if you are looking for something to appease a food snob you may want to search a bit further!
I've been here 3 times. each time I felt like the food was exactly average. the service was decent and the price is fair. not worth it to go out of the way for, but if you are a local or in the area and craving some Mexican, it may work for you.
The staff there is exceptional and very very kind. They have a very large menu and tons of options to choose from, they also give you a lot of bang for your buck. The service is pretty fast and I reccomend this restaurant to everybody I know. If you want Mexican food and are in the area I reccomend you try this place out.
Great outdoor patio. Very good margaritas...lots of options. Very good cheese dip! Salsa good too. That's all I wanted and that's what I got!
We like to come here with the kids. The service is prompt and friendly, the food is delicious.
Authentic Mexican with great prices
Food and service was pretty good and prices were reasonable.
Good food, portions are decent. The atmosphere is family friendly. We were close to a family who were having their 12 yo birthday party.
Fresh food and fast lunch service
Great margaritas! Food could use improvement
One of few “real” Mexican options in the area. Very attentive staff. Ice cold beer served in tall frosty mugs at fair prices. Good chips & salsa. Great tacos. Have met some nice friendly people sitting at the bar. My new “go to” place when in the mood for Mexican — or just a couple cold beverages.
The food is really good and service also really good. The food took a little too long but happy with our food!
Very authentic Mexican restaurant... really enjoyed time and food... delicacy at its best...
Decent Mexican place.
The food was horrible and they didnt put any booze in the margaritas
Great food great staff
The food and service was amazin...I recomend the margaritas, delicious. We will be back.
Great food, large portions, tacky decor, variable service. I've been here a couple times and you definitely go here for the food and drinks. Staffing is variable, but mostly understaffed. Both times we went there the server hardly spoke English but nailed the orders. I would recommend doing take out when possible or catching a couple drinks.
My kids love this place. The food is great.
I liked what I had. Closest I've had to the Mexican food I had in El Paso Texas.
Absolutely worst "dining" experience of my life. Seated at an awkward little table near an out of control adult birthday party group next a bunch of unsupervised kids dancing in the isles. So loud couldn't hear each other talk. We paid for the drink my wife ordered and left. Maybe it was just a one-time perfect storm of loud rude people but it really was stunningly awful.
The cuisine here is authentic and consistent. We have been visiting this restaurant since they opened, and compare it to any Mexican restaurant we've eaten at in the continental United States. The tortilla soup, spicy shrimp and the carne asada are a few our favorite dishes.
Excellent food! Good vegetarian options.
Good food...could spice it up a bit but that my personal taste.
Very good food friendly staff
Some of the best and fastest service I've ever recieved! The kept my water filled and refilled the chips and salsa multiple times without having to be flagged down. The pork Chile Verde and enchilada plate were very good for the price and the portions are huge. Will definitely be going back!
I ordered fajitas I brought it home to my dog. That was the worse fajitas I’ve ever had. I only wanted to try it cuz it had great reviews but I’ll bever go back
Good service, authentic Mexican food with an extensive menu selections. Al fresco dining, too. Priced about average for RI.
Stopped by for a quick lunch and was very pleasantly surprised by the food. We would definitely come here again. Crab enchiladas and fish tacos we're great.
Excellent food, excellent margaritas. They even give everyone individual salsas! They didn’t mind us bringing a cake for a birthday, even gave us plates and a serving utensil.
I loovve this place. The cranston location shut down so i travel to this one for the food Margaritas are good too Great service also. Decent prices for awesome food Kid menu available
Great service.. good good and prices are also great.
Excellent food And service!!!
Great food, awesome margaritas, fabulous dessert. Service was STELLAR. New favorite Mexican restaurant. Kudos to the staff.
Not mexican food.. The rice of my moms carne asada was all hard and old.. My tacos al pastor were chicken instead or pork.. Not a good time.
Great food. Usually service is good. Last time we went, we waited forever at every juncture of our meal.
Best Mexican food I have had aside from my parents cooking!
The food gets better every time I go!
Great dinner and service!
Quick service and good food.
Ok so not sure where to start.... Picture your grandma's house but Mexican style. Including dolls in frilly dresses behind glass, hand painted murals and cheesy mexican music. Grandma makes a mean house margarita but her air conditioning is broken so it's like 85 degrees inside. We waited for about 15 mins after that to order nachos Idaho appetizer, it came out in a decent amount of time but was bland and insanely greasy. Service was ok considering how busy they were, but we will not be going back.
Best Mexican food in town hands down!
I travel a lot and get Mexican food all over the US. This place is legit. Authentic feel/food, good service, warm tortilla chips... Greeted with a hello and left to a "have a nice day".... I would highly recommend the Huevos Rancheros.
Good food, good people, fast service, good price
El Tapatio was singularly responsible for bringing great tex-mex back to Rhode Island after the few places we had all seemingly decided to shut down in the early 2000's. They've been in and out of a few locations, but their North Kingstown location appears to be here for the long haul. This is what your food would be like in SoCal. Everything is delicious and the service is almost absurdly fast. You get huge servings. Downsides are that the rice is sometimes dry and the drinks are unpredictable. Once had a drink that was basically water, then another drink that was almost entirely tequila. Eat here immediately.
great food great atmosphere and awesome customer service highly recommend it
Felt like I was back in Mexico eating authentic food and atmosphere!
Service great. Food okay. Taco salad said supposed to have tomatoes (plural) and onion and none were present except for the one half slice of a tomato pictured here. Ordered the margarita with Grand Marnier but it came without it so reordered. Not so great overall but again - the people were very nice so I would try again.
The food is always delicious and the place is clean, but the last time we went we had two different waiters and they were not really attentive to our table, but they were both nice
Very disappointing and overpriced. Waitress had zero personality and therefore only got a 15% tip. She gave all of her attention to the table that was ordering rounds of very expensive drinks, of course! Fish tacos seriously should be renamed MUSH tacos...had to eat them with a fork. Tiny pieces of fish in the mush. Tasted just okay. Best thing we ate was the warm chips and salsa. We walked out the door with not as much as a thank you. Would never go back and I do not recommended. There was snow and ice to walk over outside their front entrance - definitely a liability and not wise on their part! Takes a lot for me to give a negative recommendation. Don't waste your hard-earned money. Too many other great restaurants in this area with grateful staff. Not this one!
An old favorite that I just happily returned to!
Excellent food that certainly satisfies. Service was very good as were the drinks. Would go again and again. Great for large parties, although the location itself is kinda small and wait times could vary. Would recommend a reservation if you can.
Bad. Bad. Bad. Not good.
THE BEST MEXICAN FOOD ANYWHERE ! I can't even list the dishes I love . It looks small but it's big on flavor .
Absolutely delicious! I love going here with my mother and trying new options (pick anything, you can never go wrong). The portions are huge and two people can easily share one plate. Usually we choose a soup (which is also a large bowl) and a meal to to share and we're so full and satisfied we have to take a to go box home.The staff is friendly and attentive too. Authentic food, authentic music, and a great time!
Good service the waiter didn’t really know English that good
