No, I would never go here again. The food is overpriced, and definitely not authentic. The margaritas are weak, and taste like sweet and sour mix, that has been watered down. Bought an extra shot of tequila for the same price as the drink itself. The bartender apologized, and stated she would discount my bill, but never did. Anyway, I... More

The 10" burrito and flour tacos is my usual order. Chips and salsa are too. The chips are thicker, and salsa is a a strong mild. The food is good for dine in or take out.

This is the best way to get their dipping chips because the chips come with the dip; otherwise it an extra cost. I love the enchilada ( I get it with chicken), my wife always gets... More

Yummy Mexican food, great margaritas too. The homemade chips and salsa are to die for! Chimichangas, burritos, tacos and enchiladas are the way to go. We usually order it all a la carte and don't forget the fried ice cream!

I don't think the decor has changed a bit in the last 15+ years and that's part of the charm. I moved out of state nearly ten years ago and Tia Helutas is like coming home. Delicious entrees. Their nachos are delicious and the portions are huge. A half order of nachos easily feeds two. Delicious margaritas, the BEST homemade... More

I love the atmosphere here, it's super cute! The food comes out fast and it's really good! I've only had the chips and salsa with a Chimichanga both times that I've been there. The margaritas are awesome and the customer service is excellent!!

Tia Helitas has some of the best authentic mexican food around. Great for an impromptu lunch or a romantic dinner. Don't forget the fried ice cream for dessert you won't regret it.
