“It's the Art”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2009

I'l be honest with you.
We haven't been thru much of the menu at Tio's Tacos.
We love the Tacos but I am still searching for the perfect Chile Rellano.
What you have to do is go here for the atmosphere.

Tio's is sandwiched between, in and around two old houses and that is all you can say that is ordinary about it. Since 1990 the owner has been constructing whimsical junk art and sculptures which words cannot describe in the limits of this space.

It's Fred Sanford meets Disneyland.
But make sure you allow enough time to take it all in.
