I didn't find the wait staff friendly or rude. Many of them just seemed to be doing a job. Sad to say, but this once was a great place to eat. I still go there because my daughter and a few friends still like to...More

We eat here at least 3-times per month. Very good food, margaritas, and service. Just make sure to ask for Taffeta or Damien, they'll treat you right and you won't be disappointed.

This restaurant spent too long as the town's only Tex mex restaurant. Instead of stepping it up when competition came they have let things go way down. Food is nothing above average. You will not leave thinking, "Wow that was so good!" Most of the...More

Tampico’s (two locations in the Morgan City area) has always been the go to Mexican restaurant in this area. I grew up on Tampico’s. There have been good and bad experiences through the years. I would say more good than bad. Went there last Friday...More

I don't know if it is because we now have two other excellent Mexican restaurants in the area or if Tampico's is just not as good as they once were. I will not go to either location unless my dinner companions want to go. El...More

We had a big crew lunch and were told we had to sit at seperate tables. The waiter seemed irritated by our crowd's size and table-swapping hijinks. The food was good, the decor pleasant - dim and cool on a hot sunny day.
