I’ve been here many times. It is authentic, and it is almost a hole in the wall. It as very busy, and service was slow. My meal was good, but I’ve had better food and service here. Mariachis were playing and they were great,

El Tenempa spells Mexican food from the name, to the menu, to the ambiance and decoration, to the live music played by a live band if four guys. The food was pretty decent too. All of my party enjoyed their food, without any complaints.

With all the fake stuff in Orlando, El Tenampa is real. Real good good, real atmosphere, and real people enjoying time together. Music adds to the fun.
