I have been to Tres for dinner about 3 times now and after trying different things each time and being sorely disappointed every time, I have decided this place is not worth it unless you're going for drinks and maybe appetizers. Everything I've tried has been really bland, small portions, big price and included extra ingredients that just aren't necessary... More

Best gourmet Mexican food, best drinks in Chico, great downtown location, good prices, terrific outdoor seating to people watch. Close to Chico State.

We read a bunch of reviews and embarked thinking we knew where we were going to eat. First place was highly reviewed, but more of a lunch place, second place was a beer pub with medium rated food, we passed for my 16 year old daughter, not ready for this place. Further closer to the campus at the end of... More

We were visiting Chico and stopped in to Tres Hombres for what we expected to be a more or less typical Mexican restaurant experience. Instead we encountered a really creative dinner house that has taken traditional Mexican fare and done some very creative things with it! First things first, when we entered the restaurant we were greeted with a smile... More

My favorite lunch GOTO. While the food is adequate, the vibe and outdoor patio are the best. Great lunch spot or lively dinner spot for a group.

A go to spot to be seen in Chico at night. We love their happy hour prices on drinks and small plates. They have wonderful margaritas and a nice outside patio. Complimentary chips and salsa too. The atmosphere is very nice inside and we have celebrated many a birthday there where you can reserve a table if you have ten... More

Tres Hombres is located very close to Chico State so it gets al lot of student activity during the school year mostly on Thursday-Saturday evenings. No matter it is still a fun place for all ages to enjoy some great Tex-Mex food, a very good margarita or a pint of ale. They have outdoor seating if you get there early.

We had very good service and the food was very good. I had the fajitas and they were very good. The atmosphere was very festive. Our group will... More

We read the reviews in the local paper and they said that this restaurant was good. We had fish tacos and fajitas and they were tasty, but where was the fish! In each taco there was about a 2mm piece of fish and the rest was a filling of salsa and lettuce. I was really disappointed in both choices. The... More

Great food, service, and atmosphere. How can you go wrong? We dine here every time we visit Chico - would not miss it! Great tacos, but the guacamole is to die for!
