“Fabulous Fresh Flavorful!!!”
Reviewed August 31, 2014

My husband and I have had some of the best Mexican food ever at Tampico. We stepped out of our comfort zone and tried some different dishes on recommendation of the staff.

For an appetizer we tried the Tampico dip. Its a combination of cheese and meat with pico de gallo which sends the dish to delish with the added freshness.

The Molcajete Azteca is one of the most amazing Mexican dishes I've ever eaten. Tender chicken, steak, and shrimp in the most flavorful sauce with yummy vegetables. Its so much food perfect to share as a dinner. The presentation in the giant carved dish adds drama to delishiousness.

Panuco Special for us was completely unexpected. When we think Mexican food we always think of things loaded with cheese and grease. This couldn't be further from that. Tender grilled fish with plump nicely seasoned shrimp. The sauted vegetables were cooked to perfection and very fresh.

This will continue to be one of our favorite places to eat in Marietta. Between the friendly attentive staff and the amazing food you can't go wrong. Foodies wont be disappointed.

“Yummy and fast”
Reviewed July 23, 2014 via mobile

Perfect for road weary travelers. The food and service were great. My husband ordered the mushroom quesadillas and I ordered shrimp fajitas. Both great but the quesadillas were very good. We would return. Basic Mexican food. Nothing fancy. Solid and fresh.

“FAST food”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

Tampico is located right in downtown Marietta, so it is a favorite of people who work downtown and don't want to get into their car to drive somewhere to eat. The food is good, but the service is so fast it's nearly unbelievable. From the point you order your food, sometimes it is a mere five minutes until your hot, fresh food is delivered to the table. You would think that due to their speed there would be mistakes, but there rarely is.

This is a great restaurant to go to during a lunch break if you work downtown because you will get your food very quickly.

“Best Mexican in Town”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

The food, atmosphere and service cannot be beat. Located on Second Street, Tampico is one of the best, cheapest, and fastest lunch options downtown. I don't think I have ever had a bad dish here, and have been a frequent visitor for over ten years.
