Good sangria and fajitas

We never miss Tipico when we visit Ft. Lauderdale. You can't judge by the humble outside. The food is prepared to order and the ingredients are fresh. On this trip I had the fajitas (steak and chicken). It was a large portion with plenty or add ins and wraps. The sangria was quite delicious... read more

A friend of ours told us the food was good here. So I gave it a shot, when we entered there were about 4 servers SEATED at the bar talking to each other. I didn't know what to expect, but I didn't expect that. There was one other table seated. My husband and I chose our seats - we were... More

One of our favorite Spanish Mexican type of restaurants even with old decor. Nice people. Have enjoyed many visitors here.

It is my favorite place for Mexican food in Fort Lauderdale. I do wish they would they would make the room more presentable. It is not dirty, but grungy looking.

Food is very consistent. Service standard for this type establishment. Prices are reasonable. Been going there for years, only one bad meal which was taken care of immediately. The only negative is the owner seems so distant towards any customers. Although the wait staff is very attentive to your needs. Roast pork & burrito are our staples. Will always return... More

Always fresh and well prepared. A good lunch spot. Have the fresh chips and salsa and then pick from a variety of authentic Mexican and Cuban recipes.

This is not a fancy, hip eating establishment. This is a clean, great value for your money eating establishment! I love the "Tipico chimichanga" Seafood loaded with crab and logastina. We have never had a bad meal here and have been eating here for years. I can't believe there aren't big line ups. Over 9 days of vacation we had... More

Had not been here in years because the last time I went, the food was terrible and the place was dirty, old and falling apart. The food is cheap in quality, not in price and badly prepared. Not authentic at all. If you know Mexican food, you will hate this place. The people working there had no social skills, no... More

We are South Floridians who don't get to Fort Lauderdale often, except for the airport. So when we had a morning appointment downtown, we decided to go back to Canyon Southwest Cafe. (#2 for a reason!) Unfortunately, it was closed (Monday at lunchtime), but fortunately, TripAdvisor led us to this cute little cafe a short walk away. Older decor and... More

We visited Tipico on the recommendations of the staff at our guest house, nearly all of them said they eat there. What a find. It was some of the best Mexican I think I've eaten anywhere. I'd highly recommend it you're looking for something different in Ft. Lauderdale. I can't wait to go back.
