Feels Like You're in Mexico

Don't let the outside appearance of the restaurant affect your decision to eat here. It is a great authentic Mexican restaurant, with Mexican flavor.

Visited this restaurant a little before mid-day on the weekend. Glad we got there when we did because by the time we got served there was a line at the door. It took a while to get acknowledged and an even longer time to get a high chair for the little one. Menu is extensive, food is tasty. One caveat,... More

Very busy on a Monday night and pretty chaotic to get a seaters attention even to add you to the wait list but all good once sat. Sharing platter to start was good with good US/Mexican tastes - and on the mains, good fajitas, the chicken was ok but the steak which was meant to be a piece of rib... More

This is truly Authentic Mexican food and the people that work at El Tenampa are friendly, helpful, efficient and hard working. We were served by Alejandro on our last visit and he was great as well!

They have moved to S. Orange Blossom Trail, I believe and that is where we found them. Had a wonderful lunch with really good food, and lots of it. Will definitely be back when we are in the area again.

Ordered the Carne Asada dish and two tacos to go. Everything was spectacular. Great guacamole. The refried beans and rice were great. Will be back soon.

We wanted to enjoy some authentic Mexican food while in the area for vacation. We asked for a suggestion from someone that worked at the resort we were staying. She recommended El Tenampa. Like many have said the looks from the outside is a little run down looking and to be honest we would not have stopped here with out... More

Ate here for the first time last year - returned this year and had another excellent meal. I won't bang on about the unprepossessing nature of the building, or the slightly lass than salubrious neighbourhood - others have spoken to those issues. Come here for the food and the authentic ambiance and leave well fed and satisfied, without spending a... More

Can not rave enough about this amazingly authentic Mexican restaurant! At first I did not want to stop due to the location and the rundown location of the little Gem! Read the reviews on Trip Advisor and decided to stop. So glad we did! Such a beautifully decorated little spot with the friendliest waitstaff. We were amazed at the display... More

We stopped in based on trip advisor reviews and it didn't disappoint. Being from Texas, I'm always leery of trying Mexican food elsewhere but this place feeds you like family and puts you in food coma without hitting the wallet that hard. Great friendly bilingual staff that helped my bilingual table. Will definitely be back again and again.
