El Tapatio Mexican Restaurant, Fruita, CO

Overall Pricing

El Tapatio is a great Mexican Restaurant with authentic Mexican cuisine. You can find several of them in Colorado and our review is of the one located in Fruita, CO. This particular location is located next door to the Monument RV Resort. You can walk to this restaurant from the RV Resort as it is only two blocks away.

We enjoyed the Chicken Fajitas along with a side of guacamole and Queso dip for the tortilla chips. The Fajitas were prepared excellently with just a small amount of seasoning on them. The house-made guacamole had a hint of lime in it which always improves the flavor. The refried beans were great and the rice was better than most. Often the rice in many Mexican restaurants is dry and tasteless. Theirs taste fresh and moist with lots of flavors. The queso cheese dip was fantastic and we wish we could get great queso dip like this more often.

The service was great. We waited less than five minutes for a table and the server was quick to take our order. Our glasses never went empty and they continuously ask if everything is okay. The next time we stop off in Grand Junction, CO. we will be sure to stop here again.
