Perfect for road weary travelers. The food and service were great. My husband ordered the mushroom quesadillas and I ordered shrimp fajitas. Both great but the quesadillas were very good. We would return. Basic Mexican food. Nothing fancy. Solid and fresh.

The food, atmosphere and service cannot be beat. Located on Second Street, Tampico is one of the best, cheapest, and fastest lunch options downtown. I don't think I have ever had a bad dish here, and have been a frequent visitor for over ten years.

We eat here every time we come to Marietta for a spring vacation. The is good and reasonably priced. Friday and Saturday night can get a bit crowded and noises.

prices are excellent, quality is phenomenal and quite obviously authentic, and even in the middle of their lunch rush, it's not more than a 5 minute or so wait. And the servers, well... friendly, accommodating, quick. All in all, a good deal, good meal.

To be honest, I was dubious about the positive reviews for a Mexican restaurant in Marietta, OH. I was pleasantly surprised. The food was very good and I would definitely recommend it if you are looking for something different. I was also impressed by the excellent service.

Solo business trip. Very casual place attentive waitstaff, excellent food, sublime top shelf margarita. Cannot recommend enough. Not frilly and superfluous. Let me stay after meal with prints on table drinking my 2nd amazing margarita. Don't miss if in area!
