Red snapper is our favoritehe really made us feel special. He was so friendly and he was qick to get our food and took very good care of us. Thanks a bunch. Hope to see yo next year! By the way we went to the tampico on airline, and if you go ask for thier best sever Tony, he is great!!!!!!

I love this place! Easily my new favorite restaurant for seafood. My favorite is the blackened salmon with fried rice, its the best! Cokes are even good and so is the guacamole. Its nothing fancy, but its perfect food! Please DO go!

So wanted this to be a good experience as it's close to my work. Food was okay, service was non-existent even though lots of servers standing around and incredibly poor policy regarding gift certificates. We had a $50 gift certificate and spent $28. We were told that they couldn't give us back cash, which was okay, but even though they had $20 and $10 gift certificates, they could not give us those either. So, we spent $50!!! Quite a tip!!! Definitely won't go back.

This place is awesome, if you want one of the best meals you will ever try (provided you like seafood of course) order the "Snapper a la plancha" with grilled shrimp, it will knock your socks off. The location, the ambience and so on leave nothing to be desired but the snapper makes the place.

I believe the prices are too high for the quality of food you get here. Service was okay, but I was expecting something better. Drinks were weak too!

I went with my friends for first time to Tampico Seafood, a friend of mine recomend me that place. To be honest it was much better as I imagine. We ate a Red Snapper toped with Shrimp and scallops, all grilled...It was amazing!

Went to Tampico with four friends from Mexico (they are from Tamaulipas the state of Tampico). We think the food is good but it is not original Tampiquena; it is more like a Tex-Mex interpretation of Mexican seafood similar to what you find in other Houston restaurants. We think the food is good but not at the level of top restaurants in town. The prices are very high for a place that looks like a taqueria. There are better choices in Houston for this price level. My Mexican friends are surprised this place is seen as a real Mexican restaurant.

I was not pleased with the poor service.
The food is not bad but is very costly.
I would have enjoyed the place had it not been for the poor service.

Tampico used to be a great seafood place; unfortunately, my last visit confirmed opinion: the quality and service are gone, and the prices are too high. Much family feuding has left Tampico without their best players. There are many better run and cheaper seafood restaurants nearby and around Houston. My family and our friends will not return. They need a change in management pronto!!!

Tampico's has got to be one of the best hidden secrets in Houston and one of the best places to go for seafood. Their Red Snapper "A la plancha" which is not on the menu is simply outstanding. The best thing to do is to pick your fish right of the ice counter and have it cooked with shrimp, crab legs, scallops, octupus, etc.
Everyone I have taken there agrees, it's a unique dish. Try the chinese fried rice to go with it, you won't regret it!

From the Ceviche, to the Fried Shrimp, to the fried rice or french fries, you can't go wrong at Tampico. Excellent fresh seafood and mexican dishes. Two salsa's that are impossible to choose between. Great food, great staff.

The absolute best in Mexican seafood that Houston has to offer...

This is a totally out-of-the-way hole in the wall...not your best bet for Friday night dinner...but excellent for that weekend lunch with friends....

We had the whole Red Snapper crowned with TONS of shrimp, scallops and squid. Simply put, it was amazing.

Get ready to wait for a bit, as it took them about 30 mins to put the meal together, but it was very much well worth the wait.

At the entrance of this seafood emporium, you'll be greeted by a cold deli case stocked with red snapper, shrimp, scallops and other fruits of the sea that can be purchased to-go or ordered to eat. The menu is fairly…
