We can in before nthe cantina's chef, but they allowed us to order, and sit in the cantina for a couple of drinks with lunch. When we were trying the Oh Mexico, they gave a little extra in a shot glass for Steve to try too. The food was good and it was a hard choice on what to order.... More

We do Taco-Tuesday almost every week. I like the hard shell beef tacos, though I wish they'd switch to a milder cheddar, it seems a little thick to me. Their enchiladas are really good - the sauce is the best I've had. The chile rellenos are my favorite of any Mexican restaurant. They're not hot like El Torito - pretty... More

Good quality for the price. Our favorite is the Carnitas plate with chips and a glass of wine. Home made salsa, carrots, onions and jalapeños.

I guess you can tell I like a lot of Mexican food, this restaurant is a little closers, it's the opposite direction if looking for fast food I would subject this one just as good.

We love going to Tio's because not only is it delicious, but it is so affordable. You walk up, order and pay and the waitress brings your food to your table. My husband always get the chicken enchiladas and I usually get the enchilada and taco plate. You also get chips and salsa with your order.

I have to admit it is usually on Tuesday that I eat in this restaurant. They have a taco Tuesday special that is great. Their tacos are made with shredded beef not hamburger and their beans are really tasty. On the weekends they serve menudo which is awesome.

I generally do take out and the order is always correct. This time my mom was in town and and we ate in at the Day Creek location. Fast service, attentive waitress, food cooked to our specifications. Mom had the beef enchiladas - 2 of them. They were huge, she only needed one. We tried the nachos, they were excellent.... More
