There are lots of places with good food in Tampico but El Itacate is the Best! Went there for the first time 3/26 and had to go again in 3/27... Amazing food! I especially enjoyed their Milanesa de Pollo Ranchera. That's like breaded chicken breast in a slightly spicy sauce with potatoes..
Also tried their Tortilla Soup and pastries and everything I tried was very tasty. We also shared the Queso Fundido with mushrooms and it was great just like the rest. Very clean and modern place! We certainly will go back there when we are back in Tampico in December.

It is a nice place, climate, and the best of this place are the "bisquetes", I haven't found any similar in all México, they can be served with strawberry marmalade, or simply with butter.

My wife and I visited El Itacate this past week in March 2015. It was a Sunday evening around 8pm and restaurant was crowded! Jam packed and filled with families of all ages. The place is a nice decent size place with booths and tables. There is a bakery side and the restaurant side. The food and service was perfect. I had the entomatadas with Chicken. They were fantastic! They were made just the way my mom use to make them. My wife ordered the gorditas. All our food was cooked to perfection. For a desert, my wife and I ordered coffee and split a concha. The sweet roll was soft, fresh, and tasty. We had a very pleasant experience!!!! I would come here again!!!!

Nothing excellent about it. Food is over priced and very plain. Terrible arroz con pollo y queso. Just OK service.
