We lived next to ca Mexican border for two years, Mexican food was ehh and good- this place really offers an authentic approach to Salvadorian food and Mexican cuisine. I love the outdoor seating and come here every chance I get. The salsa and nachos are a great starter and different from American versions!

We went to Los Tios for an evening meal. What a great experience. The margaritas were fabulous and the meal outstanding. I had the mahi mahi fajitas and they were so wonderful. The wait staff was congenial and responsive. We had a great time.

I love, love this restaurant. It conveniently located around the corner. My favorites are plantains, quesadillas, and pollo Mexicano. I would recommend this restaurant to all because the staff is nice, they stay packed, and they have the best food.

I had been here before for a retirement party. This time it was my retirement party. The staff was very attentive. The chips are great and they kept refilling the baskets. They also refilled the drinks. Everyone had something different to eat AND everyone loved the food.

Earlier today I had a late lunch at Los Tios. I'd been wanting to have some Mexican food for a while and this really hit the spot.

I love this place. I went with friends and tried the Parilladas (mixed grill fajitas). This is great and includes beef, chicken, chorizo and ribs beautifully cooked. It comes with rice and beans. Service is great as well. Lovely place!

There are three locations of this restaurant now, which tells me they are doing something right. I don't get over their way very often, but when I do, this is the go-to place. Authentic cuisine tex/mex and Salvadoran, large portions, best taste. highly recommended
