Tapatio is always wonderful. My husband and I have tried every Mexican restaurant in the Tallahassee area, and El Tapatio is by far the best. I would recommend the "O", it is grilled chicken covered in cheese dip. Everytime I order it the chicken is moist and delicious. It is never dry or old like some of the restaurants I have tried around here. The prices are excellent and the Margarita's are wonderful. Our food has always come very fast and hot. We absolutely love El Tapatio, and won't trade it for any of the chain Mexican restaurants around here. It is family owned and operated and we have gotten to know the staff over our months of eating there once a week. Excellent excellent food. We bring all of our friends there, and none have them have gone back to any other Mexican Restaurant. It is the best kept secret in town.
I am not sure about the previous review that sounds a little far fetched to me. my experiences with peppers have been great they always have drink specials usually 241 draft and they offer Negra Modelo and dos equis... Not to mention the drafts are only $2.50 + 2 for 1 margaritas. I highly recommend the chimichangas and enchiladas and of course chips and salsa are included. From what I understand this is a franchise restaurant but the deals are unbeatable I usually walk out of there for less than 30 dollars with tip included for 2 people and multiple drinks. I give Peppers 5 stars.
While the food here is very good, the service needs improving. We have visited here several times and most every time the food arrives cooler than normal. It appears they get some of the order ready quickly and it sits there and gets cool while the other ordered items are being prepared. Also they hold the appetizers until the main course is brought to the table. This causes the other food, that was hot, to get cool while eating the appetizers.
