Not your typical Mexi joint. Chips are light and crispy. Salsa is delicious with a hint of chipolte and a nice kick. Queso dip is well above most I've experienced! My meal was piping hot and was phenomenal.

This is not the same ole same ole Mexican restaurant, sure they start you off with chips and salsa, but that's about the only thing they do that reminds me of the typical no matter what you order it all tastes the same places. Very individual dishes with great taste and presentation, must try the mahi mahi dish fantastic.

In my travels across America, I have eaten at numerous Mexican restaurants. Every time I've been to Mi Tenampa's, it has been excellent!

We had some delicious enchiladas there last night. The service was good, the food was attractively plated, and the only problem was that we were the only two diners in the restaurant at 6:00pm. It felt a little uncomfortable because we couldn't understand the lack of patronage.

We found this gem in our neighborhood and now go there first if we are in the mood for Mexican. Service is great, food is better than your average Mexican, several food items I'd never had in a Mexican place before. We were kind of surprised at first that it wasn't more busy, but it seems to be getting better... More

This is a newer restaurant. My brother introduced me to it in June 2013 and I've already been back, in July. The menu has variety, with prices much lower than expected. I ordered the same thing on my second trip because it was so good, avocado enchiladas. They're available on the Lunch Menu, which is available to order from even... More

Having moved from out west, we found it difficult to find mexican food that was palatable. So much was so heavy because of the oil it was cooked in. This restaurant has the best, from the chips and salsa to the entrees that we have had. The staff is always friendly, and we thoroughly enjoy dining here.

Description
This Mexican restaurant offers fabulously delicious food at very reasonable prices. The atmosphere is casual dining and family friendly, with courteous and attentive staff. We have gone there several times and have never been disappointed with the food nor the service. The food served is better than any Mexican-style chain restaurant with the same prices. The owner, Agustin Sanchez is an Award-Winning-Chef, who comes and greets the customers at their tables.
