good fajitas - huge meet and greet place for 20-30 somethings

We stopped by Los Tios for take out fajitas on a recent Friday evening. Los Tios was completely packed with young professionals in the 20-30 something range having a terrific time during happy hour. It was completely informal, incredibly noisy and virtually impossible to get through the crowd to... read more

Worth the few miles drive from King Street. We were driving around looking for something different and ran into this spot. Very large patio, packed for a Sunday night! We got sat right away, ordered our margarita's and relaxed while we reviewed the menu. If I could have ordered 5 meals, I would have. We split 5 appetizers and all... More

Back again after about a year to enjoy the best Latin American food in Del Ray, we were not disappointed. The expansive menu offers something for every taste with burritos, tacos and enchiladas the most popular. A full list of fajitas was too tempting so we chose the beef, which was hot, saucy and tasty. There is a small but... More

These guys make the best margarita on the east coast. It is really nice to be in the sun outside with one of there frozen margaritas. The food here is great also, but I am only having a margarita today.

Found Los Tios on a friends recommendation.. Excellent find! My son and I shared the Yuca and Chicharon (yuca and fried pork) and it was excellent. I had the Lechoncito al horno, pork roasted in a really piquant but not too spicy Spanish-style sauce that was Muy Bien! And you get to choose the Tequila for your Margarita! They are... More

I live in Del Ray and have had the opportunity to visit Los Tios on many occasions. After last night's dinner, I decided it was about time to write a review. Los Tios offers excellent versions of standard Mexican/Salvadorean: tacos, enchiladas, pupusas, burritos and the like. But where Los Tios really shines are the more upscale and refined dishes that...

Family friendly restaurant with a wide variety of Mexican and Salvadoran dishes - no need for combo #1, get something special. The tamal de elote and tostones were wonderful as appetizers and the seafood enchilada was delicious as well! More than enough to take home for another meal. Servers were very attentive and not intrusive.

Excellent food, reasonable cost and terrific service with a staff that goes out of its way to accommodate and pacify our sometimes rambunctious grandsons so that we can enjoy the dining experience. We're out-of-town visitors, but Los Tios has never failed us in any way.

While we'd long heard about Los Tios, it was only recently that we stopped by their for a weekend brunch when family were in town. The menu is pretty authentic El Salvadorean/Mexican and certainly had more options than we could try. Food was great with ample servings and we found dishes that could please the picky palates of three generations... More
