El Tapatio is a local Mexican restaurant with three locations in the Upper Cumberland. They serve traditional Mexican food in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. It is a local favorite in Cookeville and Sparta and gets great reviews online.
"Favorite Spot in Cookeville!! I come here once every one to two weeks, it's always packed no matter what time of the day, the people who put bad reviews below are not to be trusted, and they have a wide variety of food. Salsa is of a smooth consistency, less tangy than some I've had in other places. The enchiladas are good, as is the taco salad. Everything they have taste better with cheese sauce poured all over it. I would recommend it to all. For kids they have to options of chicken nuggets and fries, and hamburgers. :
