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 the bar to pick up our food. Staff was extremely friendly... More

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

Long-time aficionados of another restaurant on Mt. Vernon, we started going to Los Tios when the line was too long..There is always room at Los Tios. The chips are great--and often still warm. The menu selection is good--and the sopapillas for dessert? Wow.

Menu is varied, the dishes are excellently prepared, and the staff is terrific. We particularly like the fish fajitas. The Los Tios salad is magnificent, especially when covered with chicken or beef. The margaritas are delightful. Going there for my birthday. Can't wait.

We are new to the Alexandria area and have been looking for a go to Mexican restaurant and we finally have found it in Los Tios Grill. The service was excellent and the food was great and plentiful. It is very family welcome.

Finally, a DC Mexican restaurant we can approve and call out favorite After 7 years we found it Austin Grill had the Carne Asada, but new owners and new chiefs killed it. This place killed it!! Great marinate and just the right combination of grill and other plate items were succulent I tried the Polo Veracruze, absolute the best Maybe... More

This place is a family favorite. We've been eating here since they first opened and the whole restaurant only occupied the space of the current bar. The staff have ALWAYS been friendly and fantastic with children. We haven't had a bad meal and any time there has ever been a problem is has been fixed immediately. Give them a try,... More
