Great food but terrible service. The girl who served us, ABBY, was absolutely dreadful and a clear racist. Was being very nice and chatty to every one else in the restaurant but for some reason just hated me and my wife. She made it very obvious that she did not like us. No greeting, no courtesy, no smile, no checking... More

We visited on a short trip to Ann Arobor with our two children (9+10). It is a quaint place with a relaxed atmosphere. The staff was very friendly and the service was outstanding. We enjoyed very good chips and salsa before dinner. I had the combination platter which came with a taco, chile relleno, and empanada. The chile relleno and... More

We had a one night stay in Ann Arbor and went out for dinner. Since the town is known for its dining we were confident that a downtown Mexican place would not disappoint. Well...it did. Should have gone to Zingerman's Roadhouse. Parking was a challenge, but it would have been for many other local places. The restaurant was mostly empty... More

Though it's a bit of a hole in the wall, Tios has great nachos, good beer, and good Mexican food. It's location is great right on Liberty so it's close to lots of other things to do in town. My only wish is that they could keep the wind from blowing in the door in the winter:)

The prices are very reasonable and the food was really good. I had the fish tacos and my husband had steak tacos and they were good. (Just coming off vacation at the outer banks and having amazing fish tacos you have to lessen you expectations for up north!) Also, our waitress was extremely helpful and friendly. I'd definitely recommend to... More

We've been looking for a great Mexican restaurant in the area and decided to give this a try while friends from out of town were visiting. I wish we would've taken them somewhere else. The service was great - our waiter was amazing. The food was just okay though. My chimichanga was dry. The rice was overcooked, the nachos were... More

Best Margarita I have had! I had the classic Margarita, it was beautifully presented and the taste was fresh, and refreshing. Must keep going to experience the many other Margarita options Tios offers!

We took my mother here while she was visiting from Texas. I would agree with her review that most of the food on the menu is more of a Tex-Mex style. Most of us had the authentic tacos and they were very similar to ones I've been served by a friend who was born in Mexico. a beef mixture with... More
