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.

Audrianna, we're so glad you love the cheese sauce so much. It's not easy being cheesy, but it sure is delicious, so we look forward to having you back again for another tasty meal. Until next time, Luis and the Team at Tampico Mexican Restaurant #1 More

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.

While visiting family in Marietta, Ohio, my wife and I were taken to Tampico for Sunday lunch. This was our first visit and it was a great choice. It was fairly busy, and a large birthday party group raised the noise level a bit, but otherwise it was a very pleasant dining experience. The host greeted us warmly, we were... More

I can't believe it has taken me so long to write a review of this place. (and I am sorry for that Tampico's) We are somewhat regulars there; sometimes as a couple, sometimes as a family, and sometimes as a celebration with a lot of people. I cannot attest to the authenticity of the food because although I have been... More

Sometimes I like to just eat. This place gave me fast Mexican food. The dessert was ok but felt bought. No atmosphere tho, no music or attention.

While we're glad you got just what you wanted, quick and tasty Mexican food, it's shocking to hear that there wasn't any music playing or attention given to you while you were here. We must have been getting close to closing, and I can guarantee that this is not how it always is. If you enjoy it that way, though... More

The positive: management was very understanding and wanted to earn their customer, decent prices The negatives: way too Americanized that it's lacking flavor, dark interior
