A Family Restaurant

Humberto (Beto) and Jada met in Madison, SD at the restaurant where Beto was working. A short year and a half later, they were married and soon after were expecting their first child. Wanting to work together in the community they call home, opening Los Tapatios is their dream for their family.

The name “Los Tapatios” is a reflection of Beto’s family home in Mexico. Beto is from the state of Jalisco. A person from Jalisco is known as a Tapatio (similar to how we would call someone a South Dakotan). Because this is a family business, “Los Tapatios” is the perfect name for our restaurant.

We invite you to join us as we deliver a personalized dining experience exceeding expectations for quality and service!

Affordable & delicious! Great little restaurant. I was pleasantly surprised. I am visiting the area from Arizona and didn't have high hopes for Mexican food around here, but boy was I suprised and quite happy with the food and service at Los Tapatios. The beers were nice and cold too!
