Great ending to a great day in Oldtown!!

1st time going here while on a mini-vacation. We were a party of 5 on a Saturday and were seated right away before 7pm. The place was filling up fast after 630 but they have a really large dining area and outdoor seating too. I was impressed with the service there, the drinks were always... read more

Love going to Los Tios! it's a favorite in my office, and only a short drive from King Street. We've been there several times with groups of up to 15 people and never had any issues. The food is absolutely wonderful (awesome selection available) and the wait staff is top notch! The only downside is finding parking on the street.

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...

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.
