If you need to get in and out quickly for lunch they will accommodate you. The food is basic Mexican fare...good... More

El Tapatio is our family choice for Mexican food in town. All food items taste great, and are reasonable priced. They always have specials of the evening for food and alcohol. Certainly recommend for any occasion. We go there monthly for dinner.

We stopped at El Tapatio for dinner after returning to Lex from a long day in Louisville. We arrived not long before closing, but we were welcomed in very warmly, and had an excellent meal.
