Great al pastor tacos and you cannot beat their price ($1.75 per taco). We also ordered a chicken tamale, fish tacos and shrimp tacos. I have had much better tamales elsewhere. The fish tacos and shrimp tacos were also so so. But the ingredients definitely were fresh. There were enough people in there, so I am sure it is a... More

Stopped in for a quick dinner one evening and we were no disappointed. Neither of us were real hungry, so we ordered a number of appetizers. This was a great decision as they were filling and having the variety was good. Will have to go back at a time when we feel we can order a full dinner.

My Granddaughter can be fussy, but, she had the quesadia, and asked if it could just have chicken and cheese, no problem, it was huge and delicious. She took half of it home and had... More

Some previous negative posts do no justice for this place. The service is wonderful and the food is excellent. Did I mention they make a real margarita no sugary bottle mix. The kitchen is very clean and they are organized. If you are looking for American Mexican food don't come here. This food is more authentic then the food at... More

My husband and I went to La Tapitia last night for the first time, for dinner. The parking lot was mobbed so we figured that was a good sign. We were seated quickly in a booth, and in about 5-10 minutes were given chips and homemade salsa...and two hot sauces. We ordered drinks - my husband wanted a bottle of... More

I used to love Tapatía. Real-deal tacos in a family place made perfect lunches. Very sorry to see last week that they have closed.

Taqueria La Tapatia in Marlborough, MA is a casual, friendly Mexican family restaurant with delicious authentic food, in a warm and casual atmosphere. The chef adjusts dishes for gluten sensitive patrons. A restaurant worth driving to.

Food, Drinks and Deserts were amazing but suits only for Mexican Taste. I saw 90% of people only Mexicans.

It was the first time we ate at this restaurant and I never will again. The restaurant was clean and the waiter friendly. Food was ordered and 2 meals came out wrong. The food was only warm and wasn't very good. All of us thought the same.

This is not your run-of-the-mill tacos/burritos mexican restaurant. We have several of those in the Metrowest area with underwhelming food. Both my sausage gordita with rice and refried beans and my husband's Carne a la Mexicana (sauteed beef in light tomato sauce) were outstanding. Their chips and salsa was also very good. With all the restaurants to choose from in... More
