Not much attention to the table, with 25% of the tables unfilled. Food was quite good. Third or fourth time dining here... first time it was not so great.

That is just lazy customer service. I made my reservation on April 26th so when did this party rent out the entire patio? There were some service miscues which was disappointing. We did like the food - chili relleno appetizer (note the filling is premade so you cannot make any changes, like no corn), skirt steak entree.

We got the salsa trio for an appetizer..it was like 3 meat marinades. I would not call it salsa…no tomato, no cilantro, no spice..it was weird. I got the carnitas for $25..it was mostly meat with two little tiny tortillas. Ratio was way, way off. The meat was good texture, but sweet. I got a pineapple Margarita. Again for $10, not worth the price. No garnishment and came in a very small cup, did not feel like I was drinking a margarita. Not my type of food place, left hungry.

I had the La Tampiquena, which is an authentic Hispanic dish - carne asada steak (very juicy, tender and flavorful),chees e enchilada in a luscious mole sauce (incredible), guacamole, corn salsa, rice and black beans. Also had an order of chips and guacamole, and it was amazing. Truly one of the best meals I've ever had. Definitely am going back!!

We have dined here several times and each time our meal was delicious. The side order of plantains is definitely recommended. Their margaritas are delicious and you also have the option of beer, wine, and mixed drinks from the bar. It is conveniently located to DCPA so dinner at Tamayo before a show is always fun.

The food was not good, everything was covered in pickled purple onions and tasted similar. The breakfast potatoes and bacon were the best thing. The margaritas tasted like lemonade and tequila. $42 for a bottomless brunch that had substandard food and drinks was way overpriced. I know location plays Into the cost but I will not be going back.

Had the Mexican cot which would’ve been great but the corn lacked any favor. The carne asada tacos would’ve been better if the meat were tender and the pepper was removed from the garnish. Also the restaurant was cold. However the pineapple margarita was great!

My husband and I chose this place because we hadn't been in a while and we were attending a musical later that evening. Our adult beverages were good plus unique. The food was spot on including not only the guacamole as an appetizer, but the canitas and veggie enchiladas. Our server, Alexa, provided us with a great dining experience!
