Delicious meat

This place is very nice in Tampico area. You will love the decoration and the service. The food is very good and the prices, too. They offer great wine list and good creations. Loved the meat.

Went here on 2nd night in Tampico and beside the language barrier, they brought different steaks to table, let us point at what we wanted and meal was excellent. I never thought I could get a good steak in Tampico (and large) but was pleasantly surprised. They did their best with the language issues but would definitely go back again... More

El Asador is pretty much the best Tampico has to offer. Like in most places, the service is fantastic and the food is even better. The decor and interior make you enjoy the experience and you're always sure to find familiar faces hanging around. A timeless favorite of many tampiquenos this place will continue to be successful through all time.

The food was very good. The ribeye I ordered was good quality and cooked as ordered. Great salsa (green and red) with chips on the table, and the wait staff was superb. Tile floor and wooden tables, but spotless. The atmosphere is clean, but not great and not romantic or special if that is important to you. So if you... More

The beef they serve here is good as well as the service, but don't expect 5 star service or 5 star setting. It's just a simple restaurant where one day the server is very good and the other only so-so. The food is good and the prices are maybe just on the high side, but okay.

This restaurant has been in Tampico for more than 12 years probably, there are three locations, one in Altamira, one near the Hampton Inn and this one on 5th Street near Avenida Universidad, we have been to all three, but this is the best. Ambiance inside is like being on a " hunting ranch house" with stone walls and decorated... More

A just OK restaurant near the Gulf of Mexico with no seafood on the menu ... it is popular with the locals but nothing to write home about.

My husband's family lives in Tampico and we love to go here when visiting. Great steaks, chicken! Pricey, but worth it!
