Okay Trippers, here goes another superlative laden review. Okay, now I'm no connoisseur but I am a pretty good customer, and this place is the real deal. I've had the pleasure of dining here several times over the years and it really is incredible. Incredibly good, incredibly consistent, incredibly addictive if Mexican food is your thing. I dined there tonight. I don't recall if there was any actual breathing involved with my meal but there was plenty of everything else. It was so good I was certain someone would come out at any moment, run to my table and with a sinister laugh yank my plate from me and run off to the kitchen screaming "just kidding"! Ridiculously good, that's what it is. If you have an Amtrak layover in Martinez, run don't walk, down to La Tapatia and enjoy a meal. Don't have a layover? Have an imaginary one. Works for me! There are very few places in the Bay Area that get authentic Mexican cuisine right and this is definitely one of the best. So there you have it. Forewarned is forearmed. No excuses now that you know the Amtrak stops here!!! Date night, family outing, boys/girls night out, business lunch bunch or just solo trekking? Yeah, they've got all of you covered... bring it!
So what make this place so special? Consistency. They deliver consistently excellent meals, which makes coming back just that much easier. Buen provecho!

I like sitting outside but the service is bad outside, its like they forget about you, they could make more money if they would come outside once in awhile and check on you,I have to go inside and ask for a drink and I see the waiter standing around talking, the food is good, they just need to crack the whip on there employees.
