This is a counter order place where you get a number and they deliver your food to the table (very quickly). Many choices of meat fillings for tacos, burritos, salads, etc. Tacos are street style with very good tortillas. The pastor filling was delicious. The birra (roasted beef) was very flavorful but I did have to pick out a large... More

Family owned and operated. Great real Mexican food. Gets a bit crazy on Monday evening with their specials, so perhaps more approachable at other times. Everything is great.

Most authentic taqueria in the valley. Everything I've tried I've loved but the Al Pastor tacos are my BFF❤️❤️.

Yes this is the real deal as other reviewers have intimated. Went there twice during our recent short stay in the Medford area. Fantastic food and atmosphere.

My ultimate thing here is the FABULOUS lengua (tongue) tacos. Yummmm. They are street taco size so be sure you order 3 if you're hungry, 4 if your starving. Really great Mexican market, too.

In the back of a Mexican Market (most everyone breezes by to get to the hot food.). Favourites: Carnitas Burito, Caldo and Horchata to drink. Stop in you wont be sorry.

Went to La Tapatia at a friend's suggestion. La Tapatia is a great taqueria. Wonderful selection of meats. Wonderful tortillas. Very good tacos, refried beans, and rice. The carnitas were quite good in flavor but uneven in quality. The carnitas was more consistent.

I was wondering what all the fuss was about for this restaurant????? I really can't say as we did finally go there and the food was what I would call "sub-standard". I ordered fish tacos and they were ok. Fish thrown on a tortilla,period. My husband ordered enchilada and a Chile Releno(sp) and it was just OK. The waitress were... More

Took the family here based on TA reviews... None of us were impressed. We found our meals to be pretty average. The pork (Al Pastor) was flavorful. The $1 tacos were small and not very flavorful. The tomato slices in my meal were not even close to being ripe (no they weren't tomatillos). We found it odd that they you... More

We have eaten here many times. It is delicious. The best Mexican food I've had throughout my travels. The cashier with really good English skills is a bit rude.
