|1225 E Winding Creek Drive #130, Eagle, ID 83616
If Mexican food is what you desire, have you tried La Tapatia in Eagle or Boise’s Parkcenter La Tapatia? The Mexican eatery is visible from State Street in Eagle but once inside the parking lot it’s not as easy to find their 1225 E. Winding Creek Drive location around the back. The décor consists of several rustic wooden chairs around glass topped tables and a few blanket-lined booths; and several pieces of metal artwork and Mexican beer posters line the walls. Check out the interesting hand painted ceiling mural!

Most lunches are in the range of $6.75 to $8.95 and are served Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. All combination plates and entrees are served with rice and beans. Small combination plates are $9.25, large combination plates are $10.75. Kid’s plates for $4.95 include rice, beans and a small order of a taco, enchilada, burrito or mini quezadilla. (Quezadilla is the Mexican spelling of quesadilla.)
Service is friendly and very attentive. Upon our arrival a server brought a bowl of hot chips with spicy salsa and bean dip and took our drink order. After perusing the extensive menu and having many questions we were pleased when Edgardo patiently explained menu items in full detail. His recommendations were accurate and appreciated!
Our order consisted of chicken quezadillas appetizer ($8.50); and a variety of entrees including a large combination plate of chicken chimichanga and pork tamale, Steak Azteca ($13.50), and Beef Flautas Rancheras ($9.95). Within no time piping hot giant ceramic dishes were delivered tableside. The entrees were garnished with freshly made pico de gallo and lots of crisp lettuce. The chicken chimichanga on the large combo plate was so large there was enough leftover for a leftover lunch at home. The Steak Azteca was accurately cooked to specifications and was as enjoyable as the shredded beef taquitos. Our drinks and chips/salsa were continually refilled throughout the meal.
Desserts consist of Deep Fried Ice Cream, Sopappillas, both $3 and Flan for $3.50. We shared two desserts. Light and airy Sopappillas (fried dough) drizzled with honey and cinnamon and an unusual treat of Fried Ice Cream, a giant ball of vanilla ice cream rolled in corn flakes then quickly deep fried. Ice cream doesn’t get any more fattening than this!
