We have been going to El Tenampa for years, the fajitas are the best I've ever had. When you visit Leo will make you feel like family.

Good solid service and menu. I had the two enchiladas from the lunch and it was a nice sized meal. The server was friendly and accommodated our groups needs. The food was served quickly and piping hot.
