I'm always skeptical about a place that puts "authentic" in their name but I was pleasantly surprised with Tampico. We were quickly seated with some warm tortillas and salsa that tasted fresh. We were starving and figured we'd be stuffed on the chips before the food came but the waiter promptly took our order and had our food back to... More

I went here the other day with my family and were quite happy. It's hard to be unique with mexican, but this place excelled where we wanted it to: good food, affordable, and large portion sizes. We had enough leftovers for a second meal. My wife is a huge fan of mexican food and she thinks this is the best... More

We've tried all the local Mexican places before happening upon Tampico. What a relief to find this place (it really wasn't too hard to find, I just took too long to try it). Solid dishes, good service, fair prices. The only shortfall? The Horchata. Seems that there's pineapple in there or something citrus based. Not my favorite. Other than that,... More

This is a pretty good place. I haven't been here, however, in years. Somehow, it got better. The burrito with shredded beef was excellent and the taco salad was pretty good. The chips are always good. They always do a good business and are in a perfect downtown location.

The food here was very good. The portion sizes are great, especially for the price you pay. Overall it wasn't too pricey and we had some food to bring home too. The waitress staff could have been a little more tentative, as we waited a long while for refills on our drinks. They have specials also which can definitely bring... More

In Leavenworth for one night. Wanted Mexican and based on trip advisor reviews we chose Tampico and so glad we did. I ordered tomatillo enchiladas(posted picture)- 2 with shredded beef and one with shredded chicken. Shredded beef was soooo good! The green rice was excellent. Good refried beans, too. My husband had fajita burrito and he liked it. The queso... More

My wife and I decided to try this place for our first date night in months and we were very happy with our visit. The place is very clean and nicely decorated with a very pleasant wait staff that was very attentive our entire dinner. For an appetizer we ordered the spinach queso to go with the complimentary chips and... More

We were pleasantly surprised at how much we enjoyed this place! I got the shrimp chimi and the dough was fluffy, soft and flavorful! Perfection. It was also a surprise to have more than just shrimp and cheese inside it. Onions and peppers gave it a great flavor. My husband got the Martinez enchiladas and they had really tasty and... More

Spectacular and friendly staff. Food was served quickly. My wife and I both had chicken chimichangas. Food was hot and tasty. Margaritas are ok.
