In town for the weekend - Glad we found this place. Very busy (but a good sign) We were seated right away. All the staff we met were cheerful and friendly. Drinks were quick and cold and the food was hot and equally fast. Enjoyed multiple enchiladas and cerveza's.!!

Family owned and operated since at least 1990, consistently delicious and enjoyable experience. The staff is very attentive, the service is prompt, and the food is always fresh.

Use to go to 'El Tap' years ago when it was one of only two Mexican restaurants in town. In the last few years, however, Rocky Mount has had an explosion of top notch Mexican competitors, all which I have reviewed.
So it seems El Tap has upped their game. The made at the table guacamole was the very best we have ever had and it is made to your specifications (I like extra lime and lots of cilantro). The margaritas were frozen to a creamy texture and the tequila was not lost in the lime. This also is one of the best in town. Service was on the spot.
Getting past the guacamole, the entire menu will give enough wonderful choices for whatever your taste buds desire and all is done well and presented beautifully.

Eat inside or out on the patio. I like enchiladas but friends chose - and raved over - the chile relleno. Dinner starts with big baskets of tortilla chips and salsa.
