We always enjoy a weekend lunch at Los Tios. We dine outside, surrounded by young families passing by or 'managing' their children at the next table. The staff is invariably efficient and pleasant. Alex is our favorite, but that is a personal bias and not a reflection of the service provided by any others. The menu offers a wonderful selection... More

This is one of our favorite places to go in Del Ray. The staff are so friendly, helpful and attentive. The food is fantastic (chicken mexicana is my favorite, but their fajitas are good, and if you like seafood and they are serving ceviche, I strongly suggest you get one...SO good.) They also have some great adult beverages - margaritas,... More

Los Tios is our go-to place for Mexican food for an occasion. I've had great tilapia and shrimp dinners, but most often we are there with extended family or friends and have tacos, quesadillas, enchiladas, fajitas and chimichangas. All are great. Plus, they have excellent margaritas and good beer. Our last visit was a birthday--the birthday Grandpa got a huge... More

We only eat here when we can sit outside. The food and the sangria is very good. The service is also very good. However, eating inside this restaurant is like sitting in the middle of a daycare center. Many families with children come here as it is a local favorite in Del Ray. Be forewarned!

Los Tios offers your typical menu of Tex-Mex options. It's a popular local hangout. Try the Salvadorian options if you're looking for a change of pace. Pros: large, cold beer. Lots of seating. Good quality food. Cons: very loud when busy. Combos don't offer many options.

In some ways I shouldn't even tell you about Los Tios, you'll come and take my seat, but I can't keep this place a secret either. Los Tios grew up with the neighborhood. It started as a tiny little bar with take out. Soon it grew into a dining room. Now it's two big dining rooms. The food is great,... More

We showed up on a Sunday around 6:15 and were seated inside right away. The patio was small and had no availability. My wife and I had our two kids. I felt that once the inside got a little busy, we were being ignored because we didn't order alcohol. Mind you, we drove about 20 minutes out of our way... More
