This location burnt down a few months ago and they are waiting to rebuild. MY family has been visiting this return since I was a child. Always a good time, food and service. I can't wait till they rebuild

I've been here more times than I can count and have never been disappointed. The food is delicious and priced nicely. I've recently moved out of state and sincerely miss this place. I can't find Mexican food like this anywhere else :(

Sadly, I can remember the early days of Mexico Tipico when it was so vibrant, clean, and the food was amazing. Those days are gone....long gone.

This is our favorite Mexican restaurant in Louisville that we've found so far. The service is fast and friendly enough and the food is outstanding with generous portions.

I have been eating here, since I was a child. They used to have better service and food. The last time we ate there we ordered two shrimp chimi's. The shrimp was like rubber and it was terrible. I hope they improve food and service as well as outside of building. It is starting to be ran down.

We eat at Mexico Tipico at least once a week if not twice a week. In my opinion this is the best Mexican in Louisville. They have recently added a Fajita Potato to the menu and it is awesome! Great Margarita's, great salsa and cold beer! A must for the Mexican lover!!!

the restaurant was built in the 70s as cow palace. so the building is 40 years old and looks like it and smells like it also. the food is not bad if you can get past the stink from the carpet. the building needs to be torn down im sure it is rat infested
