Review of El Tio - CLOSED

El Tio
Restaurant details
Reviewed February 19, 2013

We tried some new things here on our recent trip. The fish soup is so flavorful and delicious. Señor Tio also made a special layered tortilla and fish dish, that was so unusual and good. The panuchos and salbutes are always great, both the pork and chicken. This is a fun dining experience!

We grabbed some food to go...mixed reviews.

The quesadillas were ok, a bit bland. The pork sandwiches were very tasty.I discovered I really don't like tamales...so I don't know whether they were good or not.

The price is good for a quick lunch.

El Tio is located one door North of the square on the street closest to the beach. It's very small with a few plastic tables. This is one of my favorite restaurants for Yucatecan comida para llevar (to go food). The tamales are delicious. They're wrapped in banana leaves and include a small bag of fresh tomato sauce. The salbutes and panuchos are also very good. The prices are very affordable too.
