It's not really nuevo, after all it's been around for 18 years, but El Tapatio is possibly one of the best Mexican joints in the valley! This authentic Mexican fare can be yours for around $20 for
two. And you will be stuffed, and happy. Parking can be tricky, so either nab a space in the miniscule lot, or park in the Albertson's lot on Victory and walk over. Walk up to the counter and order, then grab some chips, pico de gallo, and a table, then
wait until your number is called. Chips are fresh and homemade and pico de gallo is some of the best we've ever tasted! Tacos ($1.60) are made on soft fresh tortillas. We love the carnitas, chicken, and asada. All meats are well-seasoned, tender, and
full of flavor. Topped with a sprinkling of white onion, cilantro, and pico de gallo, you'll want to order at least three! From the Plate Combination Menu, try the #1, the Super Nachos ($7.50). We order it with steak, but you can choose any meat. It's
topped with tortilla chips, cheese, sour cream, guacamole, and salsa. These nachos are muy bueno! The #7 Enchiladas Plate ($7.90) is a steal for three huge chicken (or any meat) filled, cheese-covered beauties, served with creamy beans, rice, lettuce, guacamole,
onions, and cilantro. If you're thinking of having a party, El Tapatio caters and is really reasonable too! El Tapatio #1 22806 Victory Blvd. Woodland Hills (818) 883-6142. Hours Mon-Fri & Sun 8 a.m.-10 p.m. Sat. 8 a.m.-11 p.m.
