“Mmmm...What a nice surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2011

I came off the highway to eat and saw a few fast food restaurants to the right. However, in the corner of my eye and down to the left of those eating dives, I saw the El Tio in a small shopping center. I thought I would try their $5.99 fajita buffet instead of the fast food fare nearby. Ommagawd, it was more than just fajitas. The potatoes were to die for and those tamales, burritos... $5.99? This place felt and tasted authentic and so flavorful. So why eat fast food when you can eat just as fast and much better? I will seek this one out again...I am serious. A high point of my trip back home.
