Best TexMex restaurant in town.
The first thing you notice is that even for a Mexican restaurant, the welcoming attitude of the wait staff is almost over the top. The chips are fresh and the bean dip and salsa are excellent. Then they bring you the food and... well, all I can say is I have been eating at El Tenampa for 15 years and I have NEVER gone away unsatisifed. It seems like a lot of Mexican places often give you either quantity OR quality, but at El Tenampa you get both. The food is great, and the portions are intentionally overwhelming. The Chile Colorado, Pork Carnitas, Banderillas (Mexican-style shish kabob), Chile Rellenos and Tacos Rancheros (soft tacos with Carne Asada) are all HIGHLY recommended. The Saturday buffet is awesome, too...just make sure you get there before the Chile Rellenos get old.
