El Tapatio, Fair Haven, CT: Looks authentic but I can't find any info on it!

I'm still looking for input on El Tapatio, a Mexican restaurant.
I went into El Tapatio, across from C-Town Supermarket at Grand and Ferry, in Fair Haven. It looked nice inside. It is fairly large (seat 60+) and it seemed clean. It was 11:30AM (when they open), so there weren't any customers yet. They greeted me and I took a menu. I was just scouting or reconnoitering at that point.
The menu looks very interesting; they have a lot of authentic Mexican fare that you don't find elsewhere, like flan napolitos, cabeza, shrimp seviche and tlacoyos. Does anyone know anything about it??

    Is this place taboo? Hello!

      Here you go:


      I've been there myself. Cheap, tasty & authentic. Mostly a Spanish speaking crowd and staff, friendly and eager to please. Start with a selection of tacos and a Dos Equis Amber, and work your way up from there.

        Great! I can do enough Spanish to get through a meal. Gracias

      I'm a total gringo, and I love this place. Nice people, good food, better prices. Places like this are why I live in Fair Haven.
