they always get it right

Like to eat Tio’s often. They have good food, friendly service, and fair prices. They also get your food order right when you modify it. Beans are great, hardshell tacos (beef/potato) w/cabbage are my fave... no cheese, wish they had queso cotija, or queso fresco instead.

I've eaten here twice now, once on "quick side" and once on "restaurant side". Both times the food was excellent. On the quick side, my wife got one carne asada and one potato taco. She said these blew away the tacos at Brandon's for Taco Tuesday. I got the Special Fries, which is fries covered in beans, carne asada, cheese,... More

While this place is popular with many of my friends, I don't get it. I always order a chicken dish where ever I eat. The chicken is brown meat, not white, tastes greasy. I only eat here when I have to.

I often come here after work, especially on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Today the food was exactly the way I ordered and hot! I tell the other drivers at work not to be scared off of the prices. It's worth every penny! But sometimes when they're real busy, the quality goes down a notch. But mostly consistent. I tell the other... More

Tio's is a good lunch spot with good variety, great selection of COLD Mexican beer (Dos Equis, Pacifico, Modelo etc.). Food is good and prices fair for quality.

You order and pay and food is brought to you. The food is yummy and great portions. The staff is always friendly. Good assortment of tasty salsas and the chips are very good. Pricing is reasonable.

Good place for a quick bite. You order at the counter and they bring your food out. It's not really a sit down type place where they wait on you. Good chips and salsa.

Tio's was recommended by a friend so we had high hopes. First impressions were very positive. The decor and atmosphere is nice and the staff was welcoming and friendly. But as is often said in dining reviews....to bad you can't eat atmosphere. The food was of excellent quality, with fresh ingredients. It was just boring. I had the potato tacos... More

I normally go to the Tio's by my house to pick up salsa and pico de gallo. My work had a meeting at the Tio's in Fontana. The food was delicious and the staff was friendly. I had the tilapia special with chips and salsa. Everything was delicious and my whole crew left happy.
