Step off of the busy Commercial Avenue business strip and right into a Southwestern atmosphere. With the look and feel of a large Spanish ranch house, El Tapatio serves up inexpensive, tasty Mexican dishes. The service is very friendly, although communication problems will arise if you don't speak Spanish. The restaurant serves all the regular Mexican dishes--tacos, burritos, tostados, enchiladas, etc.--in addition to very potent margaritas. The flan, unlike at many of Chicago's Mexican restaurants, here is homemade and fresh.
