Welcome to El Tapatio! We have catered in Houston and its community — Greater Heights, Shady Acres, Independence Heights, Oak Forest and Garden Oaks area since 1989.


Taqueria El Tapatio was established in 1989 as one of the first taco houses in Houston. Within the year the clientele has grown and as well our menu. The 29 years of success we have added many homemade plates from our Chile Relleno to Enchiladas, Fajita Mix and Parrillada. 


One of our biggest growth in our restaurant are our Famous Mexican Steaks served in a hot skillet plate that we prepare daily in our own homemade marination (El Tapatio, Chuleton, Costillas De Res,  El Vaquero, Fajita Mix and our Parrillada with Shrimp) 


Our delicious “Hot Bars” is a great catering option for groups of 8 people and more. Letting your guest create their own Mexican feast from our FAMOUS taco trio, tostada, nachos, salads and burrito bowl with all of the topping they crave. Each “Hot Bar” order comes complete with everything you need to serve a memorable meal.
