This place is awesome I agree the outside is not that nice but the inside is very nice and colorful. The food is delicious and is not over priced is really great. The staff is really friendly and polite. The food took some time to get to the table but it was worth it really fresh and just perfect.

I went it this dump a couple of years back with my family, and the food and service were mediocre, at best. I decided to try it again today by myself, as it is located across the street from a tattoo shop I was getting work done at. The parking has still not improved. They have an uneven, cracked pavement... More

This place doesn't look inviting from the outside but the food inside is lovely.. My husband had the steak and cactus and I had the chicken mole which was lovely.. The staff were lovely and pleasant but the Maraichi Band hit the spot..

The outside might look bad but when you go inside its pretty nice. Food was good. Wait staff was nice and polite. No loud band or anything crazy like that. Not over priced either.

My experience at tenampa was not to greag. They had a reaally loud mariachi band playing so you could barely hear the person next to you. The service was absolutely awful and I would have not left a tip had it not already been added to the check- which I found ridiculous they charged us 14$ for a tip when... More

Thanks to the many reviews on Yelp we gave this place a chance on our way home from Orlando. It's no surprise Mexican food is our favorite so it's always a pleasant surprise to find a new great spot. We happened to get there just as they opened, check the hours they are posted differently on Yelp than what was... More

Because of all the good reviews we have read on Tripadvisor we decided to have dinner at the restaurant. The restaurant has a bit odd looking parkinglot and a homeless guy selling goods in front of the restaurant but when we entered the restaurant we knew we made the right choice. When we sat down and looked at the menu... More

Found this restaurant though one of the "Disney" guidebooks. Authentic Mexican food at a good price. I lived up to what they said. They had a good lunch crowd on a Friday and the portions were big. Priced very reasonable. We would definately visit here next time we are in the Orlando area. It is not that hard to find,... More

El tenampa has tacos that are just about as good as the taquerias in California. The other food here is great as well, and it's the most authentic Mexican you will find in the area.

You can find great Mexican food while listening to mariachis every Friday. Good price, good attention and excellent location
