    oday there are 16 locations in the Portland area to serve you. In addition, El Tapatio has a presence in Boise, Idaho serving under the name El Rancho Viejo. eltapatio-history-mapEl Tapatio is still a family operated restaurant and is committed to serving quality Mexican cuisine, made with the freshest ingredients. El Tapatio offers traditional dishes such as tacos, burritos, and enchiladas as well as innovative dishes such as our Molcajete dish. The traditional décor and family friendly environments are an ideal place to celebrate special occasions or just come in for a casual lunch or dinner. In addition, El Tapatio offers full service cantinas to wet the tongue with some of the tastiest margaritas and cocktails in town!

    Recently, Efren decided that El Tapatio should offer a healthier Mexican option without sacrificing the quality or taste. Therefore, El Tapatio has made small but significant changes in the way it prepares its recipes. For example, El Tapatio does not use lard in the preparation of the refried beans, a healthier canola oil is used instead. In addition, El Tapatio utilizes the healthier sea salt in its recipes and in its table salt shakers. All of our sautéed meats such as fajitas and carnitas are cooked with vegetable, soybean, or canola oil as well.

    El Tapatio prides itself in offering great value to its patrons. Your stomach won’t be disappointed with the generous servings and neither will your wallet with the prices. As always, chips and salsa are served to our guests! We hope to see you really soon, Amigos!
