The most bizarre decorations of any restaurant I have ever been too. The owner made all the art in the patio, which you can enjoy year-round in Southern California! I recommend the burritos and chicken tacos. Also fun to try the fruit drinks!

I have worked in downtown Riverside for over five years and never ventured to try Tio's Tacos (maybe the recycled-can-figures scared me away!) but now I know it will be a regular haunt! The Huevos Rancheros were amazing - probably because of the sauces they...More

Tio’s tacos on Mission Inn is a must see. The many large sculptures are made of recyclables/junk. Tin cans, plastic bottles and bottle caps. Walk through the sculptures and look at the gift shop, then go next door to order a ten dollar plate with...More

The décor and art are different, unique and interesting. The food is not very good, it is not the worst Mexican food I have had but definitely not good. I would not go back.

This place had slow service. Average food. And worst of all it is not a very good area, we were not comfortable staying there to eat.

I really love the atmosphere of this place with its weird statues and constructions. The food is really good and also really cheap. Nice yard with outdoor seats and tables. Highly recommended

First time in Riverside. Went for walk along Mission Inn Ave and stumbled across Tio's Tacos. Fun checking out all the recycled objects made into sculptures. Food was great. Fresh juices also increasingly.

The fresh tacos and great fruit juice were great. But the really awesome part of this restaurant is the outsider art exhibit. Take time to wander the sculpture part that surrounds the restaurant after you eat. Definitely eat first.

This place is great the amazing exhibition of giant sculptures made out of bottles, cans, toys you have to come see it for yourself. Great food they also have a huge variety of Agua Frescas

Stopped in for Friday Lunch with my brothers. Hadn't been in almost a year, still good Mexican food in a fantasy environment. Although the time passed has allowed us to see that the grounds with all their recycled magic, have diminished in upkeep and even...More
