El Tapatio started back in 2002 when owners launched their first successful mobil food truck in Grand Junction, Colorado. They brought their culinary passion to every dish they made and soon in January 20th,  2003 they finally made their dream come true of opening their first restaurant.

The first El Tapatio is located on North Avenue and the clientele love their special dishes since the beginning. Then, in 2007, owners decided to open their second Restaurant in Parachute, Colorado in March. After much success, they opened the third store in Fruita, Colorado in February 2008.

The clientele responded very well and they opened their fourth Restaurant in Delta, Colorado in October 2008. They thought about expanding their restaurants and decided to open their fifth in the state of Arizona, in the city of Page in January 2013

And from there, after another successful opening, they started their sixth Restaurant in Flagstaff, Arizona in April 2017.  They are very thankful to the clients who have made this possible in all locations.
