This casual spot offers excellent food (and drinks!) for a very reasonable price, served by friendly staff. Excellent choice for dinner with friends.

Had a blast here recently. We had a large party and the waiter was great - don't remember his name, though. I recommend the Fajitas, and they even come in two sizes. Everyone said they liked their meal.

We've ordered the steak burrito with green sauce... Amazing! The chicken fajitas are so yummy too! Throw some salsa on top with some sour cream and you're set! The place... More

Excellent food! Service was polite and accommodating. Parking is limited. Large dining room is good for large groups but doesn't provide a warm welcoming feel.

Tampico is a comfortable, homey place with great wait staff and absolutely delicious food. The guacamole and salsa are always fresh. Combo fajitas are my favorite as well as all the enchiladas.

I have eaten here three times in the past year. I stick to the safe tacos and salads. I avoid the authentic Mexican food for fear it will light me up. The food is good and so is the service. It has subdued lighting and is cozy. The restaurant is in an old Howard Johnson's restaurant building. The bathrooms are... More

Stopped in for dinner, had the 1/2 pound steam shrimp and 2 steak soft tacos. Both were outstanding. The service was top notch. The server ordered my food promptly and the food was served quickly. I will return here again whenever I'm in the area.

My friend picked up carry out from here. We threw most of it in the trash. It seemed a little funky as if it was out dated.

We have a wide choice of Central American restaurants here. This place is in the middle of the pack. Good service, not crowded when we went. Good selection, reasonable prices. Ample parking, shared with the motel next door. Between the lanes of Route 1.Does not excel.
