We came for lunch and the restaurant was not busy. The food was average Mexican, the portions huge and the service was good. Two of our three orders got mixed up. There are better places to get your fix for Mexican.

Have been going here for years and usually a great place with amazing food but for this Monday visit nothing was great. Chips are unusually boring, right out of a bag, a little stale and cold, very poor table attention, took a very long time...More

We have a group of about 12 people. Tampico set us up in a private area with a great waiter. Food came out quickly and we were able to have our discussion and return to work. Good quality food and very good service.

This is a local favorite. Good food, generous portions and friendly and efficient staff. We ordered the street tacos both pork and beef and they were. Kids gave it thumbs up too.

Tiny restaurant but it makes up for it in flavor. I had the street tacos and they were outstanding. Tacos and beer, you can't go wrong. The prices are more expensive than they should be but other than that it's really good.

Tampico is locally renowned for its huge burritos, which are very tasty and a great value -- almost certain to feed you at least once more at home. However, the lemonade was little better than pink-colored water. My wife and I are non-drinkers and Tampico...More

Everytime we visit, I order the beef taco salad with tostada, edible shell/bowl. My husband orders the macho burrito. We leave very full each time. The same friendly staff has been working there & running the place for at least the last 20 years that...More

Tampicos food is excellent with larger than average servings. The service is excellent. The wait persons are very friendly. Food is hot and served very quickly. Only drawback is the place is very small and can easily hear the conversations at other tables.

We used to come to Tampico years ago but stopped for unknown reasons and started to go to either of two other places in town. Remember it being pretty good and thought we'd try it again at our daughter's request. The drinks were great. The...More

No idea about gluten free, but I'd give them a call and ask.
