You need to eat there corn burritos with secret sause. You'll come back again and again. I've done this for 20 years.

Liked all of it. The salsa is good but it's a little on the hot side for most people. I had the enchilada special with a salad on the side, with a glass of ice tea. The service was very good and served promptly. She kept my tea topped off and the salsa dish filled, along with the chip dish.... More

The old location of Tia Babe's had a restaurant that served great Mexican food at good prices. The new location of Tia Babe's not so much.

The food is horrible, no spice, no flavor! No choice for a spicier salsa, it's a shame, the beautiful building, one would hope for more! It did taste like it was old and had been microwaved. Never will go again, wonder why the parking lot is so empty? Tia Babes was good as a "to go place" before she built... More

I asked the waiter about the carnitas, and he said they were outstanding. So I ordered them. When the server set the food in front of me, the smell was that of pork that had been stored in a refrigerator for a couple of weeks and then microwaved. And it tasted worse. Terrible understates the case. My friends ordered Carne... More

A group of us went to this place after hearing great things from others. It was nice looking place. The food and service however was very poor. One person in our party had a Carnitas Burrito. The meat tasted old and rancid. It was sent back. The chicken fajitas were tasteless and dry. One person in our party was sick... More

Beautiful Spanish decor building, inexpensive, but quality of food is poor. We've been there once, and no desire to return.

I'm a native Californian and fancy myself a mexican restaurant expert. With the exception of the place I grew up down the street from, this is the best restaurant I have ever been to for mexican food. The moment I walked through the door I felt like I was a local. Even spoke with Tia Babe who is an unbelievably... More
