Gone Down Hill - Sad

I used to like to see the new Chryslers, then eat here; they would have some really great specials, which they told me they don't have anymore...sad.

If you want great Mexican food, you need to go here. There is always a seat available and it's quiet. This place looks like a hole in the wall but don't let it fool you! I go here at least twice a month if not more.

We've been looking for a good spot for authentic Tex Mex so we were really excited to try Tampico Grill. We really wanted to like it. The food was... some was great, some was not so great. The salsa was okay but definitely could use some more heat. The steak fajitas and steak tacos were excellent! The mole sauce that... More

My adult daughter and I randomly went to lunch there. The server was adorably sweet and attentive. Service was fairly quick. My daughter had a portobello mushroom fajita and it was very tasty and a nice portion (we took some home too). I had a portobello enchilada and a cheese enchilada with the mole sauce which was also yummy. The... More

Been here several times with a friend and always find good quality Tex-Mex food. Don't let the location fool you, it is a friendly family owned restaurant with food.

Went for the first time not too long ago as I'd heard rave reviews about the food so I went to give it a try. The service was a little slow and took a little bit before I got my drink and my dinner partner already had theirs, but otherwise the server we had was very nice and friendly. I... More

tomatoes and cheese are endangered species at this restaurant. Their taco salad is basically just lettuce and very little else

I look for ugly diners that serve good food. The decor in Tampico reminded me of a dreary cantina in northern Mexico. I have eaten here once or twice a year for a long time. I killed a big fat cockroach on the way to my table but decided to stay anyway. The diner looked like it came from the... More

Great family dining spot. I'm always seated in the back area (thank goodness, I have two toddlers!) and service is always with a smile. Generous portions, fresh chips and delicious salsa are pluses as well! They also have a bar, which considering the fact that I have those toddlers I should probably spend some time there. I don't, but everyone... More
