My husband's favorite restaurant is Tia Queta. It has been his favorite restaurant for at least 20 years. We went a few years ago and it was excellent every time. We decided to go for New Year's Eve this year, to make it a special...More

I’ve been going here for nearly 30 years and can’t think of a place I’d rather be. Every dish I’ve ever had there is excellent and the best margaritas in town

I first started going to Tia Queta restaurant in 2004 and from the moment I stepped into their rooftop deck - I was hooked. It is just like the family restaurants I would visit in Mexico with whitewashed walls and an eclectic mix of treasures...More

My husband and I always choose TiaQuetq when we want to have a quiet dinner with friends and not feel rushed. Margaritas first with their tomato salsa, chips and a side of Quacamole to start. Our favorites include chicken mole, enchiladas verdes and their fish...More

For many years my wife and I were regulars here enjoying memorable meals courtesy of Roberto and his extended family. Over time, the staff changed and some dishes became disappointing and we drifted away. Mainly for old times sake, we went back for dinner and...More

We came for lunch. Not impressed. Mole enchiladas were greasy and mole sauce had no flavor. Tortilla was mushy. Chicken in the enchiladas was orange, and did not taste good. Tacos al pastor OK but not great. Burrito not great either. Chips and salsa- the...More
