I am so shocked at how this place gets good reviews. We had eaten here a couple of years ago and did not go back because we didn't like the food. Well, we decided to give them another try because we know things can change for the good. ----- WE WILL NOT BE GOING BACK!!! ----- The food (Carne Asada... More

Visited this restaurant on advice from a girl at the mini golf place. We went at 3 in the afternoon on a Saturday. It was busy...but we got a table quickly. The restaurant is small & the parking could be difficult. If you like authentic Mexican food & atmosphere, this is a great place to go. We ordered a family... More

This is the real deal for is amazing, authentic and inexpensive to boot. Natural juices are delish! The service is good. The mariachi band is great...i think they only play on weekends. The only thing is now it's always packed so a long wait and its very small. I wish they would expand! But might lose some of the charm... More

I swear by great online reviews. If a place doesn't have decent reviews, I won't patronize them. I am so confused about this place. It had great online reviews and boy was I disappointed. The food was average, it wasn't bad. The service was beyond horrible. In my opinion, our waitress was racist. We were the only white family in... More

Food was sooooooo delicious! My whole family was satisfied with their orders. Loved that they cook REAL Mexican food, not that bland gringo version crap. Service was excellent, especially considering how busy this place is. Would highly recommend to anyone!

The food was good and the restaurant is pretty inside. Food came out quickly. However, the location is not that great. Parking lot is not very big, parking was a little tough. There were a couple of homeless people around asking for money.

The chili Rilleno wasn't that good. But the wet burrito was really good tons of meat. The tamales was also pretty good. They also have good margaritas.

El Tenampa is the best hole in the wall in Kissimmee! Literally passed this place tons of times for 6 months and never even knew it existed. The food is amazingly tasty and a great value. We would highly recommend the Wet Burrito, so huge it easily lasts TWO meals! The servers are all very friendly but do not speak... More

We live over 1 hour from this incredible place and will still drive down here to eat. This is true Mexican food and even though my husband and I are not Hispanic, the staff and everyone here are incredibly accommodating and could not be nicer. Their guacamole is outstanding, as is the salsa and really everything. The tortillas are always... More
