The service is great and they have endless fresh complementary nachos and salsa. I really liked the food here. I keep coming to this place for their margaritas and sangria. The food is always fresh, the Mexican dishes are yummy and the restaurant per se has a lot of character and always clean. The patio area are very nice when... More

The best Mexican food in Alexandria, and the East coast can be found at Lis Tios (LT). Eating outside on a summer even at LT is really a great experience. I have been coming to LT for many years. Their margaritas are the best, and I love both their quesadillas and enchiladas. I am sure you will love LT and... More

If you're looking for decent TexMex, this place is for you. Not fancy, not expensive. The drinks are weak.

This was one of our favorite restaurants when we lived here previously. We have been to several other restaurants we had fond memories of...and were sorely disappointed. Not Los Tios--I think it is better than I recall. Tasty light chips with salsa (bottomless). We all enjoyed our meals so VERY much. Fajitas. Chimichangas. Burritos. You absolutely cannot go wrong. For... More

Stopped in with a party of 9 on a Friday night and they were able to seat us at two adjoining tables. The staff is very friendly. The large margarita was huge and really good. Fajitas were also good. Everyone in our party really enjoyed their meals. If you are visiting Alexandria, this is not in a tourist area but... More

Los Tios is a local place. I can walk down the hill to get there. I am biased as i have never had a bad anything there. The staff are great. The water glasses should always be full. Especially when im downing these margaritas... lol. The food is about 85 to 95 quality in my book. And that makes a... More

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
