I've been going to El Tio for years. All of their food is excellent. They're very reasonable priced. The waitresses and waiter always give us prompt exceptional customer service. They're very friendly and welcoming. My husband and I dine at this establishment often. It looks like a little hole in the wall diner. It's a great place to eat. Everything... More

Love Mrs. Irma Jennifer and the others. They are kind and genuine and the food is excellent. Their margaritas are the bomb they are always made special!

Everything we ordered was efficiently prepared and served with little or no waiting, which included several special orders that were not on the menu.

Seems very inconsistent we have eaten there several times and it's good about every other time. Portion sizes are perfect.

I love their Sunday Buffet, but I haven't eaten anything there I didn't really like. The people that own this restaraunt are warm and very friendly. We feel we are part of the family.
