Great Mexican food when in the Marietta area. No complaints at all with the food or portion sizes. Service is sometimes a little iffy (not terrible, just blah!), but the quality of the food and the atmosphere makes up for this deficiency.

It's fantastic to hear that you've consistently enjoyed the food and ambiance here! That said, we are concerned to know that the service hasn't always impressed. It's certainly always our goal to provide quality, efficient service, so we'll be sure to touch base with the team to ensure that we're continuing to work towards consistently remaining true to those standards....

We were told by some women at the welcome center to avoid this restaurant because the food wasn't good and the staff were rude. Well, I think someone from another restaurant paid them to say this, as they couldn't be more WRONG!!! We were so glad we decided to walk over from our hotel. The waiter was very friendly and...

Had a business lunch here during my last stop in Marietta. I had forgotten about Tampico. The food is still good, the decor is still funky, and the service is still very fast. Definitely a plus when you're on a schedule. Everything was delicious and the portion size was generous. One of those can't miss places you can always count... More

I would eat just about anything with your cheese sauce on it. The atmosphere is amazing, wait staff is always quick, courteous. Just an amazing time all around.

Stopped at the restaurant last Sunday with two sorority sisters after a meeting at Marietta College. We were immediately seated, provided our soda requests, and had an attentive waitress. I was able to order off the luncheon menu which helped to keep costs down. I was also pleased that the gentleman at the cashier was willing to split our check... More

We eat here at least once a week. Usually I order the chicken fajitas or the chicken fajita nachos. Both are large enough to share, but why? The prices are reasonable. The restaurant can be loudish, but that is part of the reason I consider it a great place to take kids.

This place is located in downtown Marietta and is very festive inside! It is much larger than I expected and can handle large parties in multiple locations. We started with the quest fondido and it did not disappoint! The tortillas were very good and hit the spot. I ordered a really great dish that had shrimp, beef, chicken, cactus, and... More

Very convenient spot in downtown Marietta directly across the street from a large parking lot with free parking. Bike shop right next door and plenty of other shops / eateries within easy walking distance. Quick service and great food. Steak fajita nachos, burrito de carne asada two favorites.
