If you are looking for authentic Cuban cuisine and not the "fast food" stuff, this is the place for you!

Tapatios has been around for a long time and only gets better. The portions are huge, the service is fast and the price is reasonable. There is never a long wait, and the staff is pleasant.

A favorite lunch stop after church, this family-run restaurant has a large menu of enchiladas, fajitas, tacos, flautas, and more in great variety. Bring a hearty appetite because the portions are plentiful. Fine service, friendly and quick. Fresh chips and flavorful salsas. Family friendly.

The food is really great but are wait was long to get are drinks and food. Are services was slow but it was differently worth the wait. It was a busy day for them and the parking lot was full, I will definitely come back...More

Fresh, crunchy chips with two kinds of salsa start the meal off right. Service is excellent as is the food. I don't live or work in Lakeland but still eat here several times a year. It is that good.

This use to be my favorite place, sadly no more. Every visit the portions have decreased and service has gone downhill. Every visit my order has arrived incorrect, cold and/or late.

I have been eating lunch here for years. It is comforting to always see the same wait staff and owner. I love the Chile Releno.
