The wait staff was very friendly and attentive. The food was good but nothing stood out. The rest of our table seemed to enjoy their entrees. Nice selection of salsas, varying in heat level.

A great place to hang and drink Tequila. We had a great time stopping in and chatting with the bartenders and having great food and drinks. We loved it. Not a big place, but great atmosphere. Will be back next visit to Ann Arbor.

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.
