We went to this little "hidden gem" after a long day at Disney's Animal Kingdom. We were tired, hungry, and looking for some great Mexican food. I am SO glad we went here. Service was prompt and polite. Our food was out in less than 15 minutes and it was AWESOME. My partner and I both got a burrito and... More

As the other reviews said the staff are really accommodating when finding you a table. There were 8 of us and they fit us in to what was a busy bustling restaurant. This was around 5pm. The food was fresh and varied, which was a delight after days of theme park rubbish food. Our fussy daughter was very particular about... More

I have a lot of food allergies, and generally find that Mexican restaurants are very accommodating. Unfortunately, they usually use too much salt and kill the true flavors. El Tapatio gets a thumbs up .... great atmosphere & Bianca, our server, was darling!

My wife asks many questions and to answer them all to her satisfaction is worth great marks !!! Food came out quick. A burrito, order of... More

My favorite to order is the chicken nachos with their fresh fruit juices. Melon is the best juice! Price is great too and they give good portions. Would definitely recommend!

We have visited this place several times over the past few years and the food has always been great authentic Mexican. The service has always been good to very good but this evenings meal with the family was more than excellent. Our waitress Karen was exceptional. She explained everything very well for our guests that were unfamiliar with Mexican food.... More

Went here on the basis of reviews here and were not disappointed. A little slow to be seated but then quickly served with chips and a drink order, $3 for two Blue Moon drafts was amazing. I had the tacos and my wife had the duo deal and both were excellent. Service was attentive and friendly, overall a great experience.

Having visited South of the Border several times, and the TexMex areas of the Southwest States, I've grown to appreciate true Mexican cuisine, not the Americanized imitations found in chain restaurants that lay false claim to menu items. Through a Canadian friend, I found El Tapatio at 1804 West Vine Street in Kissimmee, about three blocks west of John Young... More
