Had an excellent dinner with a focus on beef items. Ordered the bone in Tomahawk at about a kilo. Served on a slab of salt. Really can serve 2 people. Excellent flavor. This restaurant is really only for beef eaters. However they do have a good salmon fillet. Excellent guacamole and queso fundido type appetizers. Limited wine but several good... More

They offer different locations around town. They have high quality steak and reasonable prices. The place has hunting decorations and the service is very good. Their menu also has some options for the one who dont feel like eating meat

Clean restaurant with delicious food. You can find the most authentic Mexican food with a reasonable price. The décor of the restaurant is unique, friendly, and you feel like you're in an hacienda. Not to mention that the staff is super friendly. My grandma can't take the stairs and she needed to go to the bathroom which is on the... More

Nice place to have breakfast, clean and good service. The food is good too. I personally didn't like the decoration, looking at dead animals while eating is not my thing, but overall it was a good experience.

In a city where crappy restaurant experiences abound, El Asador is one of the very few places that actually seems to take itself and its customers seriously. From delicious entrées and main courses, to a nice choice of drinks, there is something to be found here for everyone. While being a steak lover certainly helps, there are also alternatives for...

For me, the best restaurant to enjoy great quality meat! Amazing Interior (Stuffed Animals). Authentic and special kitchen. Worth a visit! (I'd call it a must in Tampico)

This was always our place to go for steaks. Great atomosphere. Very nice restaurant and wonderful service. We would always bring our American friends and family to eat here while they were visiting us in Tampico. I always got the tortilla soup. They serve the condiments on the side of the bowl, so you can pick and choose what you... More
