Our annual family reunion of about 12, recently celebrated a evening out at El Tenampa and we absolutely loved it. The Mexican food was amazing and the ambiance felt very authentic. Plenty of latin families there enjoying an evening out. Prices were very reasonable and the quality of food was excellent. The mariachis on a Saturday night were quite entertaining and the energy in the whole restaurant was well uplifting. We will definitely return..

This was my first time in this restaurant and I loved it. The food was very good, I tried the taquitos with mix meat and the giant hamburger. The food was beautifuly served, very good taste and good quantity. It is decorated with Mexican Murales and wood chair carved with Diego Rivera's Painting. The price was excellent.

We are local, and had tried Tenampa a year ago for a very nice meal (although with mariachis, not a favorite.) If I recall, we had enchiladas, etc. and the quantities were large, flavors good, and the quality decent. Then we forgot about this little spot.

The other night we tried it again, this time having the chicken mole. This is not shredded chicken, but 3 bone-in pieces, all of which had a fairly odd taste. The Man finished his, but I could not. After our memory of our previous meal, this was a disappointment.

The service was great, the chips were house-made and flavorful, and the cerveza cold (although without a glass.) We owe it to El Tenampa to try once more sometime. Then the winning 2 votes will decide if we ever return.

Orlando has so few decent Mexican restaurants, if you're in the mood and nearby, give this one a chance. We will one more time.

from the outside this place doesnt really impress,but the food is excellent. had the mexican style steak and it was cooked to perfection.the sides you get with your main course means we avoided having a starter but the starters at the next table looked delicious.the staff were very young and seemed a bit inexperienced but overall we had a great time here.
