Very family friendly. The portions are very large! The food was really good and the wait staff was so friendly! Definitely recommend this place for a casual dinner ?

Good food. Great service. I had taco said and my husband has bacon wrapped shrimp. It all was very good. We will go back.

Used to love it, spoke highly of their food, leave a tip even when picking up but now I don’t feel comfortable because I’ve gave them multiple chances but now I see that’s just the way they are. The customer service caters to Hispanics and whites . The greetings are not the same. The energy given is not the same. No smiles or feeling of welcome. I’ve been missing items out my order or food cooked incorrectly the last few times I’ve come to pick up my order and when notified the hostess/host seems to be annoyed or not inclined to fix it. It’s like I’m bothering them to correct their mistake. I’ve witnessed them service people who came after me knowing I was there first. Just no respect and disregard. I will no longer spend my money there and will be notifying everyone I know that I don’t think this is an establishment where Black money or people are appreciated.

First time here. Food was great. We don't love near but we will be making trips to eat here again. Very hard to find good Mexican food in FL.

So far and still the best authentic MEXICAN FOOD I have had in Lakeland! Rates a 10 plus for prep, presentation and taste not to mention portion. Service was excellent, food arrived hot. And cleanliness was excellent!

Overall we were disappointed. The salsa and rice were good, but everything else lacked flavor. The service was middle-of-the-road; a large bug was crawling across the floor, and the restroom had no toilet paper or soap.

Restaurant was expanded plenty of room food was delicious and it's a great family atmosphere place was packed but only waited a few mins for a table and staff was professional


Amazing Experience. We Drive almost 2 hours and we left more than Happy Best Mexican Restaurant.

The food is amazing and authentic! The staff is also very nice and helpful if you don’t know what to order. Great prices for the amount of food you get! What more can I say? Great restaurant!


My family & I have eaten here for at least 22 years. This is the first time we've ever been disappointed. We ordered dinner (picked up) Friday Night. First time I ever got the chicken taco salad, I ate about 1/2 & put the rest in fridge, thinking I would eat it the next day .NOT! It ended up in the trash because during the night i got very bad stomach cramps & ended up being sick ALL day Saturday! Pretty sure I got food poison. Couldn't go far from the bathroom. Im very disappointed, we've never gotten sick from eating there in all the years we've been going there. My husband had the fajitas & only ate the shrimp out of it. I bought the nachos Supreme for my son & he didn't touch it at all because it was just overloaded with sour cream ect. I feel like I waisted almost $40 and was sick ALL day Saturday from food poison. NOT GOOD, now we will be scared to eat there again:(


We have been to Tapatios numerous times. This particular time we commented on how much better the food is as compared to Abuelos. The service was good. The restaurant newly renovated. The servers were efficient and competent. We each had fajitas and they were perfect. (I had chicken, he had beef) We will be dining there again.
