I was extremely disappointed today when I ordered a lunch special to go. I paid seven bucks plus gave a tip, of course.. was not worth my nine dollars. first off, my box was set in sideways so my beans dripped all into my carry-out bag.. I guess it was half my fault because I should have checked it out... More

We always come to Tampicos when we're in a rush and want something yummy. The staff is always super friendly, chips and salsa are on the table lightning fast, and your order almost always comes out really quickly. I love their spinach quesadilla and my boyfriend likes the chicken fajita quesadilla. If you need a quick bite to eat, or... More

Ordered the Enchiladas Supreme. One beef, one cheese, one bean, & one chicken enchilada. The best part was the slice of garden tomato that was placed on top of the pile of lettuce and sour creme that covered the enchiladas. Just a very bland and unseasoned meal. Even hot sauce from the table couldn't salvage it. The chicken enchilada had... More

Good food and really fast service made for an enjoyable meal here while we were visiting Marietta. The food is pretty much what you would find in any mexican restaurant but after a long day of traveling, the fast service is perfect..and well appreciated. If in the area, stop in and enjoy a meal!

My husband and I have had some of the best Mexican food ever at Tampico. We stepped out of our comfort zone and tried some different dishes on recommendation of the staff. For an appetizer we tried the Tampico dip. Its a combination of cheese and meat with pico de gallo which sends the dish to delish with the added... More

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.

Tampico is located right in downtown Marietta, so it is a favorite of people who work downtown and don't want to get into their car to drive somewhere to eat. The food is good, but the service is so fast it's nearly unbelievable. From the point you order your food, sometimes it is a mere five minutes until your hot,... More

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.
