el tapatio is another strip-mall restaurant...but it rates a bit above your typical strip mall restaurant. we were there on 10/19, at 8:45pm. our server, dulce, was primo - attentive but not intrusive. shmackyrelish and i both liked that they serve beans with their chips and salsa - in fact, we both thought the beans they served upfront were better than the beans that came with our entrees. the chips tasted store-bought, but dulce had no problem keeping our basket filled. shmack thought the salsa had ""a nice bite,"" with good spicing. i had the pork carnitas, which were not at all to my taste. they were more like fajita-style, but whatever it was, i didn't like the cooking method. shmack had much better success with the crab enchiladas - they were excellent. we both liked the fact that many dishes come with guacamole and/or sour cream, and that they have an extensive seafood and veggie menu - shmack is looking forward to trying their spinach enchiladas. the booths were comfortable, the decor was lively. plus they gave us a free dessert - a sugared tortilla strip with fruit sauce and chocolate drizzled, covered with whipped cream! i'd definitely return here if i was in the area. olus they are an entertainment book participant!
Pros: comfy booths, great service, entertainment book participant
Cons: fajita-style pork carnitas
