When we moved to the area 7 years ago, one of the first things we did was hunt for a good Mexican place. We've been going here at least once a month since then. The food is awesome and decently priced. The owners and servers are super friendly and always make us feel welcome. There are 5 of us in... More

We live in Tennessee and visit family in the Atlanta area often. We had suggested perhaps a Thai restaurant and I had my mouth watering for Pad Thai. Instead we were told we were going to a Mexican restaurant. My taste buds were greatly disappointed. But, only until we tasted the food at El Tenampa, which is tucked in a... More

This was a terrible Mexican restaurant. First, they only provided one small basket of chips and two small bowls of terrible salsa for the three of us. It costs $1.75 for additional chips! We didn't order anything complicated, but it was a terribly long wait for our food. Maybe that is so you will eat up all your chips and... More

I purchased food from this restaurant on Thursday to discover they overcharged my card. I typically go online and review restaurants before I dine but a co-worker recommended this one. My first and last time dining here. Patrons Beware!!! This appears to happen often...Please Read Google Reviews!!!

We go to this restaurant at least once every 2 weeks. The salsa is SUPERB. When they see me coming in they always give me LOTS of salsa.:-) This is a family run place and we LOVE the fact that they know us! The chicken and vegetable soup is one of my favorite soups in the WORLD. Do not expect... More

This is a family neighborhood restaurant that makes excellent food. We discovered this place about 12 years ago when we moved in this nearby and this is without any exaggeration the best Mexican place we found so far. Occasionally we try other Mexican Restaurants and as we walk out we look at each other and say: but is not as... More

This place is a great stop for a quick, hot lunch. Yesterday I took a break from my busy day in the Johns Creek/Duluth area for a delicious Mexican food fiesta. A friendly waitress brought warm tortilla chips, salsa and later cheese dip. I ordered the "one beef taco, two beef enchiladas" meal with rice and sweet tea. I probably... More

We were looking for a place for lunch and just did a GPS search for places near us. We didn't know a thing about this restaurant before but now it's one of our favorites. The food was VERY tasty and the service was great.
