I was so surprised to see Tippys. I practically lived at the one in Burke. That seems like many moons ago. I always liked the margarita machine there. Had a bean burrito would have rather had better cheese in it. The hot sauce is good, not too spicy. Friends had chili cheese rice, it still tastes... read more

My husband ordered a fajita burrito and they used lunch meat (?) for the chicken. No peppers, but lots of shredded lettuce on a hot burrito. I had the tacos. Pre-fab shells, nothing homemade here. Bland guacamole. Kinda dirty. Would never go back.

Tippy's is a staple to Centreville. Food is always consistent, service is fast, and prices are incredibly cheap. It is so easy to find coupons online as well. Yes, the interior could be more modern, but it really gives a homey feel.

Tippy's is not a tablecloth restaurant. You order at the counter after reading the extensive menu on the wall and your food is brought to the table. What the staff brings is excellent. Our burrito, enchiladas and frijoles were excellent. The counter staff is friendly (my first time at a Mexican restaurant run by sub-continent Indians) and they get your... More

Tippys is always good for the Mexican taste on a budget! I love the tacos, taco salad and pretty much all the dinner combinations...the best part is the service and price!

We were in Centreville, VA area by chance and went to Tippy's Taco. I haven't been to a Tippy's Taco since my work days in Fair Lakes area. It was fun to go back with my husband and have my stand by Super Nacho's. The staff were pleasant and the food was prepared quickly and brought to the table. It... More

I know, I know.... but it just is. This goes back to when I was a kid, this is the best of my comfort food. The staff knows my order, the food is quick and always delicious. I can't get enough Tippy's!

Surprising good food for such a small restaurant. Pleasantly surprised when we used a coupon to buy food at Tippys. When Groupon offered discounted pricing, we jumped on the opportunity to buy two Groupons so that we can enjoy well priced tasty meals from Tippys again.
