It's a fun atmosphere, but the food is so-so. Nicely presented, but pretty boring in taste. We had a good server, but when we asked another server for another place setting, we were told he was too busy!

We have been to Tres many times while visiting our son who is going to Chico State and its always good. The service is always great, the food too and it's in the perfect spot to people watch. Last night we sat outside even though it was quite hot but with the ceiling fans and a slight breeze we were... More

This was a good place to get out of the sun and grab some cold margaritas. There is good outdoor seating, but the AC was calling.

Tres Hombres is a longtime fixture in Chico--at the very center of town across from the old stalwarts of Collier Hardware and Bidwell Presbyterian Church. Its a great place to enjoy a fast lunch on the newly established porch seating off Broadway; for drinks on a lazy and warm Chico afternoon; or an early dinner with friends. I have been... More

Service was great, the decor lovely. Salsa and chips on the table immediately, nice friendly staff. Went in on a weeknight around 4:30 so not very busy. The food is not traditional Mexican cuisine, not to my liking at all. I ordered a beef taco and got a chicken taco, the rice was hard and cold, the retried bean pretty... More

Found this off of Trip Advisor. Right on the corner Cal state chico across the street. Lots of parking. Great selection of beverages. Try the stuffed calamari.

Be sure to go when the college students are not in session. (You will not get seated for a long time if they are) From 4-6 they offer $5 plates of many things. Cocoanut shrimp is my personal favorite. Many offerings from the bar--excellent margaritas, plain, peach and other fruits.

Tres is a popular spot and seems to be busy many nights. However, it's beyond me why this is the case. The food is average and definitely not authentic Mexican cuisine. My son ordered a burrito ($12), which was packed with dried-out rice and had very little meat or flavor. This was the final straw for our family. The cost... More

Tres Hombres is one of the most popular places in town but I have no idea why. Maybe it's the location, but it certainly isn't the food.The food is the least authentic Mexican food I've ever had. It's gringo Mexican. I've tried numerous dishes and they're all the same, decent at their very best. It should convert to a bar... More
