Food was pretty good

The fajitas for two was very good and the quantity still made for left overs. Servers were good, hostess could be more friendly and interactive.

Very authentic , superb, and excellent service. Had 2 wonderful meals, 3 margaritas, and a tip for 50 bucks. The decor is very nice, and the young lady that served us could not have been nicer. Will look forward to getting back next time we are in town. Thanks.

My hubby wanted Mexican food and we found this place. Very small parking lot, chips and salsa to start wasn't too bad..hubby had burritos and bean enchalada and I had a chimichonga. The place is very small, waitress we had was very nice. Not what I expected for my dinner.

We happened upon El Tenampa while looking on yelp for a good place to eat. What an excellent find. My com-padres were nervous driving up to the place, a small building with Mexican market attached. The parking lot was packed. When you open the door you understand why. The smell from the kitchen was mouth watering. The menu has something... More

It was ok for a quick lunch, kind of a disappointment due to the recent reviews. I won't go out of my way to return. Server was ok, nothing special-forgot my sour cream I ordered and did not offer me a refill on my drink.

From the outside, this place is super sketchy. It looks like a road house type dive bar attached to a low end grocery store. If not for a good review in our guidebook, I'd never have stopped here. Once you walk in the door though, you can see it's a busy, family friendly and authentic Mexican joint frequented by Spanish... More

After seeing a huge line up here one day, we tried it the next and were really pleased. In addition, the next door carniceria is a fun stop for bakery items as well as other groceries. (not that you'll be hungry after El Tenampa)

Excellent Food. Good Vegetarian Options. The Hot Salsa was very very good! Crowded, has tex -mex feel to the dining room.

I used this website to search for a good Mexican restaurant in the area and as El Tenampa came up as number 1, we decided to give it a go. Firstly, don't let the exterior of the restaurant put you off going in - it looks a little bit dodgy from the outside, but the interior is much better and... More

Great food and ambiance. Visited because of other great reviews. My whole family strongly agrees. A terrific find in an area of chain restaurants that you can go to any day. If you love Mexican food, you can't go wrong.
