Good Mexican food

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.

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!

I have been here several times and while it won't be gourmet it is a great place to get a quick cheap meal. I usually get 4 beef hard shell tacos.

Tippys catered our lunch at work and the food was on time , warm and delicious,the soft tacos were my favorite as was the guacamole,the hot sauce was the perfect amount of heat with flavor as well.I normally don't eat lunch but the FOUR tacos I had from Tippys really hit the spot!

This place is a no go. The server isn't friendly at all, it seems like she doesn't like her job and takes it out on the customers. The food is terrible and expensive. Don't waste your time and money on this restaurant.

Great little taco place! A friend of mine at work and I usually pop in here for lunch (never been for dinner) and I think they have awesome tacos at a cheap price! Get the small trio dip appetizer too – perfect to share with two or three people (guac, cheese and salsa). My husband likes their burritos too. It... More

I've been going to this place since I was in high school and that was in the 80s. I got married and my husband and I moved. Now that we are back in the local area I told him we needed to go to this place - he fell in love. The food is good and simple and you won't... More

I love the tacos. No ambiance in the restaurant. The service is friendly and they have great tacos for the price.
