The décor and art are different, unique and interesting. The food is not very good, it is not the worst Mexican food I have had but definitely not good. I would not go back.

This place had slow service. Average food. And worst of all it is not a very good area, we were not comfortable staying there to eat.

I really love the atmosphere of this place with its weird statues and constructions. The food is really good and also really cheap. Nice yard with outdoor seats and tables. Highly recommended

If you're traveling to Riverside, CA, you can't miss visiting Tios Tacos! While the food is good (so those with me told me... I was full), the real draw is the amazing and never-ending art exhibition featuring GIANT sculptures made from trash. Bottles, cans, toys,...More

This place has one the best visual atmosphere a restaurant can have. The food ordering was a bit confusing at first. But we got the hang of it. It's most definitely a must see place. Especially during the holidays. Kids loved it. Took some great...More

I really wanted to love this place. Been dying to go since seeing it featured on a Facebook page. The decor, totally worth going for. The food, meh. We arrived around 6 PM on a Friday night. Nobody in line. When you walk in, it...More
