Not bad

I liked the food, though probably not as aromatically spiced as Mexican food would be. The decor and seating situation could use some work. It's not as comfortable as I know the Southern restaurants. We were seating right in front of the kitchen (without a door) and were surrounded by a lot of foot... read more

Tampicos isn't my favorite Mexican restaurant in town. The chips and salsa are amazing, I often buy a jar of salsa to take home. The staff is very friendly and the owner makes you feel at home. The food is wonderful, my favorite is the chicken chimichanga. They offer two types of rice red and green (spicer of the two)... More

Love it. Eat it. Do it!!!! Recommendations are Pork Chimichangas, Jalapeño Shrimp Skewers, Martinez Enchiladas, Burrito Steak Fajitas, with Green Cilantro rice and black beans, or Fajita Quesadilla. So good!! 2 for 1 Margaritas are flowing every day. Located in historic building in oldest River port of the town. Always full of military families.

The taco salad comes in a large flour tortilla shell and has way more chicken than lettuce, which you may or may not prefer. The salsa is pretty good albeit a bit salty and the Chili Verde w/pork is good and spicy w/a little sharpness from the tomatillos. Service is good and the ambience is definitely Mexican inspired.

I am a Mexican food snob, if there is such a thing, having grown up in LA where Mexican restaurants outnumber McDonalds and Burger Kings combined. As usual, I stick with the basics the first time I visit a Mexican restaurant to see if they can get them right before moving on to more complex dishes, so we ordered their... More

Their staff is very nice and their food comes in great portions. Their homemade salsa is the best, too! When the Hilton is built in 2016 or 2017, this will be a great location for out-of-town guests staying at the hotel. It's conveniently located in historic downtown Leavenworth.

Good Mexican food here, and the margaritas are a butt kicker, just the way I like them. Fair priced with excellent flavor. Located in a nice area also.

Went for a weekday lunch with a friend. Pretty good and I recommend trying the green rice as an alternative to the normal Mexican rice, it was quite good. Service was good as were my lunch fajitas. Reasonable prices, good portions, and as a bonus they give a military discount. Worth a stop when downtown shopping.

The restaurant is fairly small so we always have to wait (short waits) for a table but it's always worth it. The service here is always great - friendly and knowledgeable. They also have a delish cilantro rice! The food is always piping hot and of the few times I've been here, I have eaten something different each time and... More
