Description: Vegan friendly menu. As seen on TV - Man vs. Food - see video below - Salsa music most Fridays - Wet Burrito Wednesdays - Tios was founded in 1986 in Ann Arbor by Tim and Harriet Seaver. Tios promises that all of our recipes use only the highest quality, best tasting ingredients those good enough to stand alone. We prepare our own beans, meats, guacamole, salad dressings, unique salsas, and enchilada sauce all from scratch. All oils used are low-fat, low-cholesterol pure vegetable oil - no lard, coconut or palm oils. We want you to be as proud to dine with us as we are to serve you.

“Nothing Special”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

No matter how often I try I can't bring myself to like Tios. They margaritas are simply not good. I can't speak for the food becuase I have never had it. Use it as a spot to get drinks before I go out as an undergrad but would never use for any other reasons.

“A Saucy Must”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

For hot sauce afficiandos this I heaven. A wall full of nearly every hot sauce one coul imagine, though Susie's from Antigua was not amongst the selection.
The food was fast, fresh and well prepared.
Standard tortillas are worn, so you know authentic from Taco Bell.
Fast friendly service and reasonable prices accompanied the food & hot sauces.
Will make a regular stop for Ann Arbor.

Come for hot sauce Sunday, your choice of heat. We ate here a lot when they had a branch in our neighborhood.

“Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Great food, its not the top Mexican food in Ann Arbor. However given location and how popular it always is, it is worth a stop.

“Good food and sauces.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

We liked the food and it was nice being able to buy a bottle of our favorite sauce to send to our son in Colorado. He miises Tios since moving there.
