Default lunch spot!

I must love it, because I frequent it like my own kitchen. Good food, good prices, and great service!

We had shrimp fajitas and masso de Puerto. Both were fabulous. Prices very reasonable. A local recommended it to us and we loved it!

We were staying just round the corner so decided to have dinner here. The decor is fairly basic but clean and the service is good. I had a steak with rice and beans and my wife had prawns. Both were very good as was the key lime pie. Prompt service and reasonable prices.

We have been going to Tipico's since a friend took us there in 2001. And since then we go back every time we are in Ft. Lauderdale, sometimes twice in a week. We have taken others and no one has ever complained, in fact they end up going back as well. It is not a upscale white linen service so... More

We walked a mile and a half to find this place. Glad we did. The food was great. Price was reasonable and the service was good. We picked Tipico over other Mexican places based off reviews and I would second the good reviews you read here.

The choices on the menu look great, but the quality of the items is not so special. There are a few other places in town that have MUCH better tasting dishes.

I went in as a solo diner and the staff made me feel weird about it. Looked at me strangely and stuck me way back in a corner. I have traveled all over the globe and this is the first time a restaurant did this. Normally I am sat a table that is too big for me. LOL At any... More

This place is a little hole in the wall - small and family owned. Without a recommendation from a good friend, I probably wouldn't have even tried it. But when I did try it (almost a dozen years ago now) it quickly became one of my favorites. I probably eat there twice a week. Everything if fresh, and the service... More
