On a busy road not great neighborhood you find La Tapatia. The food was excellent, well worth the visit. Its a small restaurant and fill up especially on the weekends. One of our favorite Mexican restaurant. You wont be dissatisfied.

All of our dinners were excellent. Service was excellent. My only complaint was the noise within the resturant. It was difficult to carry on a conversation.

I love everything about La Tapatia! The sangria is a must have. I ordered the special seafood fajitas. Out of this world delicious. Everything is super fresh and full of flavor! You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. The prices can't be beat!

Take a walk/drive past the high priced Asbury Park Downtown and you'll be rewarded with an abundance of delicious Mexican, reasonably priced and in a nice environment. Now, don't let Main St. and the surrounding shops fool you! Go in without hesitation and enjoy!

On Main St in not an especially great area, but the food makes up for that. We've brought several friends here, and they've in turn brought others who like it as well. Portions are big enough that there's always plenty for lunch the next day....More
