Free chips while you order. Try the Greek Potatoes! Awesome. If you like TVs ask for a seat up front in bar area.

The food isn't terrible, but I am kinda surprised at the other reviews that are raving about this place. The menu is huge and has everything from pancakes and skillets to gyros, burritos and burgers. In my experience places like this that have too much of everything don't really specialize in anything, and nothing is really great, and that is... More

Tello is what I used to think of as a Greek restaurant but now Mexican. It's dated but clean. Good service but slow cooking. I had the homemade corned beef hash with poached eggs and an English muffin. My bride had huevos rancheros with marinara sauce instead of the spicy ranchero sauce. Both were very good. My meal arrived exactly... More

Tremendous warm chips and salsa, great raspberry margarita and Mucho Chicken Sandwich was great as usual. Our waiter, Douglas was extremely innatentive, and way too casual for my liking! Confusion at end with check and coupon! I'll go again for sure!

I like most food here but breakfast is terrible. How can someone mess up eggs, toast and sausage, or omelette. The high ceilings in main dining hall don't allow you to carry on a conversation over dinner. The acoustics are terrible.

Been here multiple times, always hoping that I'll find something good. The "Mexican" menu is overpriced and always over-cooked. I've paid half the price for food that was twice as good. The meat is ALWAYS cooked to the point of being chewy/dry and somehow they seem to miss the concept of traditional Mexican seasonings. I've only tried 1 Greek item.... More

Really good food, that have a wide variety and you get large servings. Short walk from the Holiday inn downtown.

Our past few visits to Tello's have been average. Yesterday's visit was the deciding factor on not wanting to return again. We had a table of 6 and waited quite a while to have a server greet us. After we gave him our drink orders, it was another long wait until we received them. Then another very long wait until... More

I was thrilled to find a breakfast place! Here at Tellos, you can have either baklava or huevos rancheros - what luck! The food was good and the menu offered lots of interesting choices.
