Had the Tampico fajitas . It was a generous amount of tender steak , chicken flavorfull chorizo, shrimp and onions and peppers. The Guacamole was very good too. Great service. Will definitely go back.

We live in California. When we go to a Mexican restaurant, we expect certain things. Tampico is attractive and the service was excellent. However, the salsa was obviously commercial, the tamales and the shredded beef tacos were bland. It's not that the food isn't perfectly good, it's just that for anyone used to food from California, it was a disappointment.... More

Tampico is a must visit for anyone who comes to Marietta and likes Mexican cuisine. Fresh ingredients lead to delicious flavors. Try the Chorri Pollo. Their pork carnitas is amazing in any dish. Quick service and very reasonable prices. If you like it hot, ask for employee salsa.

My husband and I love the fajita nachos. We usually split them, but on this day we each got our own. The food was really fresh, and the service was really fast. We love the atmosphere.

I have eaten there many times and the food has been consistently good. The service is exceptional. It is a great place to go if you are going to the local theatres. It is within a block of both of them.

One of our favorite places to eat! Located downtown Marietta, Ohio. Atmosphere is great... noisy, but typical of authentic Mexican restaurants. Food is excellent and service is fast! Reasonably priced and delicious!

Great Mexican food when in the Marietta area. No complaints at all with the food or portion sizes. Service is sometimes a little iffy (not terrible, just blah!), but the quality of the food and the atmosphere makes up for this deficiency.

We were told by some women at the welcome center to avoid this restaurant because the food wasn't good and the staff were rude.
