“Great Salsa, But Only Once?”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

My chicken enchilada was great. My tamale and taco could have been better, but tasted fine. The salsa was amazing, but you only get one bowl of salsa and chips and $2 per round after! The way I eat chips and salsa would have costed me a fortune!

“Ehhh”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

Have had a lot better. Fried food was a bit soggy. Beans with the chips were good though. Other food was all right. I wouldn't call this place bad, it just wasn't all that good.

“Authentic”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

El Tenampa is my favorite place for Mexican food. It is spicy, but not too. The service is excellent and the servers are very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is what one would expect from a Mexican-American restaurant. The food is very good and the prices are reasonable. Try it, you might like it. Oh, and their salsa is tasty.

“I liked the Chicken and Mushroom served over rice”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

The sauce was not as good as the Mexican food in Ogden, Utah; but the environment was friendly and high energy. The food was served on a very hot plate and the toritillas were hot from the oven. The environment is very decorative.
