This is not Mexican food. True, it may be to much to ask to eat a decent Mexican meal in Tallahassee, Florida, but seriously...Taco Bell is a better bet than El Tapatio. I was so excited to try it, and was disappointed not only by the cheap and gaudy decor, but the slop they served up for food. I couldn't touch anything but the lettuce (the few strands that had escaped the vile pile of "guacamole"). The guacamole is obviously frozen and way past its prime, and the cheese they use on all their entrees tastes like it has been eaten, digested, and regurgitated right back onto the plate.
The waiters are polite.
The food is horrid.
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.
