Established since 1962, Tampico is a restaurant offering traditional and Tex-Mex cuisine at moderate prices in a Hacienda style environment. Tampico'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. Words such as "freshness", "healthy", "grilling", "light", "colorful", and "unique ingredients" all help describe our food.
