On a busy road not great neighborhood you find La Tapatia. The food was excellent, well worth the visit. Its a small restaurant and fill up especially on the weekends. One of our favorite Mexican restaurant. You wont be dissatisfied.

All of our dinners were excellent. Service was excellent. My only complaint was the noise within the resturant. It was difficult to carry on a conversation.
