The food is really good. Salsa is runny but has good flavor. The wait staff is prompt and although they do not speak much English they are helpful, pleasant and do not drive you crazy coming by every 5 minutes. I would eat here again.

This is mediocre Mexican, been there a few times and have never tried their American dishes. I quit going because the owner and some of the help act like they could care less about your business.

Real authentic Mexican food. My favorite is the tampiquena steak plate. Comes with beans and rice and a cheese enchilada, and of course I go weak in the knees for their fresh guacamole. Get a side of it for your chips too.

Very glad to have El Tap in Powell. I really like some of their combos. If you are looking to have a cold one with your meal this is the place.

El Tap's food is consistently good - love the carne asada with a side cheese enchilada, or the Tampiquena. Shrimp is always good, great guacamole, and my husband loves the smothered burrito, fixed "special" with lots of sauce inside and out. We love and support...More
