Everyone enjoyed their meals! Great portion size and the food comes out fairly quick. A bit loud because we went at dinner time but we were moved to a quieter table.More

Stopped in last week during business trip to the area. The food was very tasty and although enchiladas with chorizo aren't on the menu, you can ask for them. Not a lot of people on the night I visited but the service was really good....More

We live in California. When we go to a Mexican restaurant, we expect certain things. Tampico is attractive and the service was excellent. However, the salsa was obviously commercial, the tamales and the shredded beef tacos were bland. It's not that the food isn't perfectly...More
