Terrific, interesting Mexican food

The antithesis of Chi-Chi's, for those who remember... Tamarindo's specializes in higher-end Mexican food with flair. Love to try new items whenever we go. It's always good and often great. Oh -- and did I mention they serve free Margaritas?? That's quite a plus!

If you are in the mood for very well-prepared flavorful Mexican food, this is for you. Do not expect typical tex-mex; no heavy cheesy-tomatoey sauces, but instead what you would expect in the Yucatan or Quintana Roo. The free marguaritas are a bonus; no liquor license, so cannot be sold here (can bring your own.) The Tampiqueno flank steak is... More

We hadn't been to Tamarindos in quite a while, but friends of ours asked us to meet them there on a recent Friday night. There has always been a long wait for a table, but this night there was none and the place was only half full. This should have been a red flag. The new menu is extensive and... More

This was a great meal! As a matter of fact one of the best meals I've had at a restaurant in ages! The restaurant is located in a strip mall, and very nondescript from the outside. The dining atmosphere is nice, and the lighting is good! I could actually see! I ordered the Filette Tamarindo's...it was delicious! As a matter... More

Got your attention, right? Yes, no liquor license so the margaritas are free. The food is authentico and the wait staff is knowledgeable. One of my friends is a vegetarian and 3 off menu dishes were available . I recommend the queso con chorizo appetizer. The duck and fajitas were also delicious. Everything is hot and fresh tasting. The kitchen... More

Tamarindos looks like it's nothing from the outside; a small entrance in an otherwise dull strip mall near Blue Bell, PA. However once inside, it's hopping with energy and good food. As others said, it can be a little pricey since you're not paying for alcohol but the portions are big enough that you'll have doggie bags to take with... More

I'll get this out of the way first - the only reason I didn't give Tamaridos and "Excellent" rating is because it was oddly expensive for a BYO. For two people with 1 app and two entrees it was $90. This is the 2nd time that I've been very surprised by a restaurant in a strip mall. It was loud... More

This place is a real find, tucked away in a strip mall, and well worth the trip. The free margaritas are amazing, and they just keep coming. No reservations, except for large groups, so get there early. The place really fills up, so I really am hesitant to tell too many people about it! We discovered it in late November... More

We visited Tamarindo's on Saturday, November 9th at around 7:30.We had to wait approximately 1/2 as the place was packed. From waiting in the foyer, it seemed as if the tables were uncomfortably close while dining, but when we were actually seated, it really wasn't it factor. As busy as they were, after being seated we had no more than... More

We've been going to Tamarindo's for years. With the purchase of an entree, they give you free Margartias made with fresh lime juice that are so fantastic! My 9 year old son loves the simple, home made tortillas with beans and rice. I love the fajitas. My husband loves the chile relleno. The fried fish is outstanding... I think they... More
