We celebrated our daughter's birthday dinner there last night (Parkersburg location). We ordered four different entrees. While they were all fairly good, we all missed the normal spicey flavor in all our dishes. Not too sure what was going on, but hopefully it was just an off night. I hope they haven't changed the recipes!! We may give it another... More

We absolutely love the steak fajita nachos. They are delicious, and are perfect for two people to split. The prices are very reasonable, and the staff is always polite.

Went to Tampico with co-workers. I had the combination fajitas. They were very tasty. I would not recommend the salsa appetizer. The salsa wasn't even as good as the kind in the jar. Next visit I would like to try the seafood options. My co workers love this place for fish tacos and enchiladas.

Thanks for coming out. We're glad you and your co-workers all enjoy the food here. While we're happy to hear you enjoyed the fajitas, it's disappointing that the salsa didn't do it for you. It's typically well received so maybe you caught us at an odd time. Anyway, hope to see you again. Until next time, Luis and the Team... More

Super place for your Mexican fix. The staff are very friendly and the service is quick. The food is excellent, and if you have a tooth for HOT, try their hot salsa. It's sure to put a fire in your experience. All dishes I have had are very tasty, and the endless chips/salsa are a plus. Some Mexican beers, regular... More

I had looked at reviews before heading on this trip. And when we got to Parkersburg we saw that it was just a block from our motel. We really enjoyed our supper. Good food and fairly quickly service. Would definitely come back.
