Decided to drive to Los Barriles from Buena Vista (maybe a 10 minute drive) for dinner. It's a nice little place and had some musicians. Tasty vegetable kebabs and rice.

So ate here for the first time, lovely place, friendly staff. I only ordered the Nachos as a starter!!! HUGH PLATE!!!!!!! this is enough for 4, great flavor and plenty of toppings. Do not be in a rush when you go as the service is on "soon come time" but I thinks its worth it

This place has a bland, uninviting American menu. Food you can get anywhere in the US. There are so meant better choices in town, such as Piscis, for an authentic Mexican meal that is really good and reasonably priced. Don't waste your time here in dullsville.

We were tired of Mexican food and wanted pizza. It was very average. One of our guests had fried shrimp that was dry and overcooked. Great location and cute inside but I would go elsewhere - just very average and I'm being nice.

So, Tio's has a very warm and friendly atmosphere. Very sweet staff. It has nightly specials like prime rib, which was excellent! But, every time my wife orders the hot dog and it is delicious!!!

I know Buzzard's used to say they had the best burgers in Baja...but that would be incorrect. Tio Pablo's has the best burger I've ever eaten. The music they play is horrible and the service isn't the fastest but the burgers make everything worth it. Their whole menu is pretty good though, especially the calamari steaks and the Beltbuster.

Only about 4 items on the menu are Mexican, the rest are American eats. We were truly looking for a great Mexican place. This was not it. Waitress was seeming to question our orders as she repeated back to us what we said. We both had different Mexican dishes, and while good, they almost tasted the same. Me: Chicken chimichanga...
