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

Tampico Grill has a great menu of authentic mexican dishes. My favorite is the simple hard shell ground beef tacos, but there are so many delicious items to choose from. The service is also excellent and we've never had to wait for a table. There is also a decent sized bar area with several tvs.

I could kick myself for not stopping at Tampico's more often. I've been there twice with friends (who highly recommended it) and each time the food and service were excellent. They brought out a basket of warm taco chips and two dishes of salsa (Nice Touch for two couples!) while we decided on our order. This time, I got the... More

We love coming here because the food is excellent. I'm from southern California and New Mexico and I know what authentic, really good Mexican cooking is, which is why we're really happy that we found Tampico Grill in Maryland. I love their chicken fajitas. We usually get a guacamole appetizer. It's a lot of really good food. Make sure you... More

I enjoy having the one of the lunch specials with the endless refills of Coke, before going across the street to look at the new cars. This place really is one of those Jewels located just off of Main street in the cool little "market area" of town.
