Loud but fun.

The food is above average for such a busy place. The wait staff is good and they manage to hear customers above the noise level. Sit outdoors if you can.

Not sure why people flock to this place. Its always packed. I would give it a C minus. Its a nice place to hang out and watch people but the food is so amateur, its ridiculous. Wait staff is "ok" at best.

The only problem with this place, is you have to time it right because it's so popular. I love trying something new each time. So far, I haven't been disappointed. The food and the drinks are outstanding. I love the atmosphere, the openness, the streetside patio seating, and that you can people watch folks walking along the university next door.... More

Tres Hombres is a Chico tradition. It has been one of the few reasons that locals go downtown even when the students are in town! AMAZING selection of Tequilas poured liberally into the best OTR Margaritas in town! The food is real Mexican recipes and done just fine. Never a bad meal but can seem a bit rushed at the... More

My family was visiting other family in Chico and we all decided to try out this restaurant for the first time. The restaurant had a lot of customers, but not all the tables were full so we thought we would be served in a timely manner. It took them 20 minutes to get to our table to even take our... More

This restaurant is very nice and classy inside with very friendly folks and great service. However, the food was substandard and maybe just "Ok" and did not seem very authentic. Maybe it was just a bad night but would not recommend it.

Food isn't your traditional Mexican food which is what you would expect from a "Mexican restaurant." Only reason I give it 3 stars is because of their margaritas. They have fresh fruit margs and I can say they are by far the best I've had!!

Have eaten at Tres Hombres ( more often just called Tres ) several times. If authentic Mexican food is what your after this is probably not your best choice. However having said that , the food here is very tasty , service is always spot on and bartenders always aim to please. It's also one of the favorites with the... More
