My family and I are spending Thanksgiving in Santa Cruz . We remember back 25+ years when we would have dinner at Tampico Kitchen. Even then it wasn't the most chowworthy Mexican restaurant in town but it was tasty with great Margaritas. I liked the two chicken tacos, rice and bean plate with cheese puddled on the beans. It doesn't have to be that authentic for me to enjoy Mexican food but I was hoping for advice to go to Tampico or not. I was looking through threads but have not found information recent on the restaurant. I remember they used to have tasty food albeit probably not the definitive Mexican restaurant of the area. My sister said she remembers reading some recent negative reviews but could not tell me what the negative reports were based on. If it is cleanliness and food safety then that is a deal breaker and I would stay away. If not advised, I will look elsewhere for a nostalgic meal. Thanks so much for your help.
