My colleague loves Mexican food. And I'm from Texas. So Los Ocampo seemed logical. Our greeting was lackluster. I've never heard of a Mexican restaurant that charges for chips and salsa. Portions were fine, neither large nor small. But our food was actually good but bland. There was no salsa, of any kind in sight. When we asked for salsa... More

Great place to eat. Authentic Mexican food. Fast friendly service with great recommendations on selection of menu item that would appeal to us. Friendly prices for great food.

The service was slow, the restaurant was dirty. There were tables that weren't bussed and staff was just standing around chatting. The food was okay. Very large portions. They also have a children's menu. I will not go back here, there are much better places to eat. Our server was super friendly.

My husband and I decided fairly late to eat out since I didn't feel like cooking but also didn't want to have to dress up. We tried Los Ocampo for the first time and we will go back. My husband had an enchilada which he said was very good. It didn't look as smothered in sauce as they often do.... More

I've been here many times and the food is good. My favorite dish is the Sopa de Marisco (I hope I spelled that correctly). There are big chucks of seafood and the soup broth is so good. I love spicy so I add extra peppers to the sauce. It is an awesome dish for cold weather. But, tonight I had... More

Service was just ok, nothing spectacular and nothing bad. It was not busy so we were seated right away and food came rather quickly. The salsa tastes weird. It tastes like Campbell's Alphabet Soup with some Mexican seasoning added in. Didn't care for it. It was very, very mild salsa. No spice at all. I ordered what would be considered... More

had a group of 8 folks having a Sunday Breakfast. We all found the food here good. We all had the Mexican style breakfasts except one person who had a standard American breakfast. Great service, very good food, reasonable prices

I've read previous reviews about bad customer service so was a little reluctant to go here but decided to take a chance anyway. We had a very nice and attentive waitress. Couldn't have asked for anyone better. The food is pretty good. I've had better but this restaurant is pretty close to authentic. My only disappointment was the carne asada... More

We go here about 4/year. It is very good. You choose your spice level and meat. The service is generally good. It is very family friendly. I wish they had a decent happy hour. The margaritas are really really good- again because they are more authentic then the chain variety. I always get the huarchados (spelling completely wrong- sorry) without... More
