“Good casual Mexican lunch on a Tuesday...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2010 via mobile

Good casual Mexican
lunch on a Tuesday was good. Quick basket of hot chips with two salsas. Two taco lunch special ($8), one beef one chicken. Beef was ground beef and a little greasy. Chicken was shredded/chopped and very tender. Both served in homemade fried shells with lettuce, tomato, cheese plus refried beans and yellow rice sides. Both a little under-seasoned. Corona ($4) ice cold. Beer & wine only, no margaritas! Seems to have Spanish food as well, but I was focused on the tacos. Service fine, not very friendly. I'd come back.

“Horrible place - bad food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2010

Food was really disgusting, service couldn't care less. The whole place looks dirty and dingy.

“Surprisingly Good Tex-Mex for a great price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2010

Tipico was recommended by a local as the only good Mexican restaurant in the area. With the exception of the nachos, everything we had was great - and we were with someone who travelled a lot in Mexico. The skirt steak Tampiqueno was fabulous, so was the chicken soup and the tres leche dessert. The sangria was perfect - not too sweet. And the prices were low.
