went with another couple on a Friday night. Sat in the restaurant side (as opposed to in the bar/lounge area which is separated) Didn't get any appetizers, but did have a Peach Margarita that was to die for.

I've been several times, as family outings, and also with just my girlfriends. The food is always good, and the atmosphere is fun! We always enjoy ourselves!

We have been here two times and plan to come back for more. The chips and salsa are just so good, Very fresh. The menu choices have yet to disappoint us and the iced tea is very refreshing. The service never lacks here as we are checked on every few minutes for refills and asked how the food is.

After a pitcher of Margarita, what ever is my plate taste good. The staff is fine, and the people are a trip especially when it is Karaoke night.

This is one my favorite restaurants in the Lafayette. The atmosphere is a bit dated but the food is outstanding. The chips and salsa are served warm, many places serve cold salsa but not here. Table side guacamole is a must and enchiladas suiza is fantastic!

This was my first time eating at tampico's, It was fantastic! We were greeted right away and seated quickly. Our server, Alaina, was prompt and smiling, it really set the mood for a good meal. The food was delicious and fresh. I am looking forward to returning when in town!
