My husband and I went to La Tapitia last night for the first time, for dinner. The parking lot was mobbed so we figured that was a good sign. We were seated quickly in a booth, and in about 5-10 minutes were given chips and homemade salsa...and two hot sauces. We ordered drinks - my husband wanted a bottle of... More

I used to love Tapatía. Real-deal tacos in a family place made perfect lunches. Very sorry to see last week that they have closed.

Food, Drinks and Deserts were amazing but suits only for Mexican Taste. I saw 90% of people only Mexicans.

It was the first time we ate at this restaurant and I never will again. The restaurant was clean and the waiter friendly. Food was ordered and 2 meals came out wrong. The food was only warm and wasn't very good. All of us thought the same.

Excellent authentic Mexican cuisine. The staff is very helpful and will make recommendations from their menu. Personal favorites are Carnitas Tacos and Pork Tamales!

When we first moved to Marlborough, La Tapatia was two blocks away. It was so good, we were going there for dinner multiple times a month. Now that it's moved to a bigger location, we don't go as often, but it's still our most-frequented restaurant in town. The food is fresh, authentic, and tasty. The salsa has the right amount...

Pleasant surprise to know authentic Mexican food in the are. Tried their taco with very similar to what we had in Mexico (for $1.75 each). I tried tongue taco and beef which was excellent). Lots of family and young kids when we went on Saturday night. Tried cactus margarita and liked it very much. The only thing we didn't like... More

Love this place! It was a proper hole-in-the-wall to begin, but has now moved into a full restaurant on the main drag through town. The tacos are truly delicious - I personally prefer the chorizo, but they're all good. Sit down with a friend and order a few with a beer (or two). I've even called ahead and taken them... More

Used to be a great little taqueria with amazing, authentic Mexican food- then they bought a larger place on the other side of town a few months ago --- and the quality is not the same. We miss the food from the old location. But, it is still a better choice than the Americanized chains that crate their food from... More

You must try the Taco Barbacoa (Barbecue taco). It will be unlike anything you've ever had. Out of the park, home-run taco. Totally craving it right now...
