I am from Lafayette originally but live in Slidell, LA near New Orleans and this is a fast growing city and I wish that someone would open a Tamipos here. The best Mexican food I have ever eaten. I go there every time I am in Lafayette to visit family. Please someone check into this and expand your business. You would make it big time here. Thanks for the great food. No one compares to Tampicos here in Slidell and Cucos is aweful.Please help!!!
The food is good and the service is decent. However, the problem with the Lafayette location is that they have no consistency. I went there four times and ordered the same dish every time (Tacos Al Carbon). They served it differently to me every time. The last time was my birthday. The meal was different and did not even taste like Tacos Al Carbon. It is a beautiful place, but they don't know how to keep people coming back.
I'm from New Orleans. I've been to Tampico's twice. It's not easy going to Lafayette, but when I do make it out there, I make sure I have lunch there. I'm hooked on the Roasted Corn Soup. I love soup, but this one tops every soup I have ever had anywhwere. Not sure if anyone has thought of this... But you MUST open up a Tampico's in New Orleans. Also, I know that the Roasted Corn Soup isn't at all locations but here in New Orleans it would be a must. The service and atmosphere is also good. Thanks again for making our experience worth wild.
I have known the owner and his mother for over 30 yrs. They started out in the 70's with one resturant now they have 4. The recipes are original mexican food. This is not Tex Mex, Chilli out of the can mexican food but this food came from recipes from generations of the family...I recommend Tampico's to everyone who likes real mexican food.
OMG I have loved Tampicos since I cant even remember when! I live in New Iberia and can eat at Tampicos every night! They are the best mexican restaurant that I have ever eaten at!!! I would give them 100 stars!!!!
