“A neat Mexican alternative to a sea of fast food chains”
Review of El Tenampa

El Tenampa
Cuisines: Mexican
Restaurant details
Reviewed September 1, 2011

This is a small family run operation, staffed and managed by Guatamalans interestingly enough. Service was friendly and attentive. Food was good, freshly prepared, and came to the table hot and ready to eat. Tortilla chips and salsa that arrived at the table were fresh and tasty. Tortilla chips were obviously home made. There was a nice variety of dishes including the usual Tex-Mex. We ordered a couple of the house specials, and were very pleased. Wine list is totally unimpressive...stay with beer or soft drinks. The place is clean, but very plain. If you're looking for white tablecloth fine dining this is not it.
