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.

This is an authentic Mexican restaurant. Don't be fooled by its looks. Be prepared to wait for a table. Every time we go the line is out the door. Just wish they would be a little more organized with the people waiting to be seated. Tends to get crowded . As for the service it's always been good. We've eaten... More

It looks a bit dodgy from the outside, next to a rough looking supermarket, but inside the staff a super friendly, polite and so eager to please. Service is great, food is good - may be not the best mexican food i have ever had but reasonably authentic, well priced, tasty and the beer is great. It's a fun place... More

I understand the high reviews...our food and drinks were GREAT! If you are the kind of diner that does not care about anything besides food...GO! This authentic Mexican food is delicious. Now to the cons: we stood at the door for 5-10 minutes, and not one person said "Hi", "We'll be with you in a moment" or "Welcome"...we just stood... More

We were greeted promptly by a very nice lady working at the restaurant. After seated, we waited almost 15 minutes to get our menus. No waiting staff approach us. Thank's to the same lady who eventually served our table. food was not as good as I remember. Not coming back!

I am an Asian on holiday and have never tried any Mexican food before but after reading the many good reviews, decided to give it a try with my kids. Ordered the Tenampa Sampler, mixed fajitas, chicken quesadillas and tacos. All these came in generous portion and we had a very satisfying meals. The meat went nicely done but found... More

We spend time in Mexico often and don't care for Americanized Mexican food. At El Tenampa, we had one of the best orders of fajitas we have ever had in the United States, delicious carnitas, and a deliciously different sope. Ok, we over-ordered! So we will have a great lunch tomorrow, too! We enjoyed classy and slightly different margaritas, too!... More
