Established since 1962, Tampico Mexican Restaurant & Cantina is a restaurant offering traditional and Tex-Mex cuisine at moderate prices in a Hacienda style environment. Tampico Mexican Restaurant & Cantina's food is different than typical Mexican food in several ways. Our food is lighter, uses more mesquite grilling, and has a greater variety of tastes. On every plate there is typically three or four unique tastes. In general, our total menu takes Mexican food and uses modern cooking techniques seen in contemporary American restaurants. We hope to see you soon!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The waiter didn't know when to leave me alone. The hostess showed contempt for me, even though I've been there every Friday this month. There is a guy who busses tables who reckonizes me and goes out of his way to acknowledge me. I wish I knew his name. He is the only person who has made an effort to make me feel welcome.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Several food items tasted like they came out of a can or jar. The salsa, for example, was sub-par. Sauces had a canned flavor, definitely not fresh. The shrimp taco was really good, as was the chicken enchilada.
