Yes, in the Blue Ridge Mountains of NC...you too can experience what we experienced in FRESH and authentic Mexican food. The owner is American but lived in Mexico for many years. He's brought back some great recipes and is serving them here at his great little restaurant in Chimney Rock. We arrived and were seated out in the back deck where you can see and hear the roaring of the fast flowing water from the river; great mountain atmosphere! We had the red sangria and beef soft tacos to start; delish! Then...here's was the best part... the Tostada's were absolutely AWESOME and so full of flavor it was amazing. 2 come on a plate with rice, but I substituted for refried beans...and got a side of guacamole. SUPERB! We definitely will be back as we can't find this kind of quality Mexican food in Charlotte where we live!! Cheers and please take a trip to Chimney Rock, Lake Lure and Bat Cave NC ... enjoy the mountains, see the fall colors, but if you like Mexican food, you'll have to be sure to make it to Tia B's; on the upper strip of all the shops in Chimney Rock main street.

Only suggestion would be to have filtered water; not to serve tap water -- too chlorinated. This would enhance the experience greatly.

Do not pass up eating at Tia B's. Everything from the appetizers to the meal was delicious! We sat out on the deck to listen to and watch the river. The inside sitting was very fresh and clean so either spot would be a good decision. The service was polite & helpful with our questions. She kept the glasses full (always a + with us). And the prices were reasonable, gotta love that! We plan on eating there the next time we are in Chimney Rock. Thank you Tia B's for a most enjoyable meal and atmosphere.

Short answer: If you're looking for great Mexican food with a fresh twist and great outdoor seating, you must go here. It's awesome.

My wife and I enjoy the new "fresh Mexican" format like Q'doba, Salasaritas and Chipolte but we also LOVE the authentic Mexican restaurants.

Tia B's was the best of both worlds. Traditional but with a fresh twist - and the ambiance on the back deck overlooking the river was absolutely awesome. The roofed back deck is uniquely nestled among trees so you don't feel like you're on display - but not so secluded that you can't easily see the river through the lacy leaves on the trees.

After eating there, my wife and I both agreed that it was some of the best Mexican food we have ever had. No question. The fresh salsas were outstanding. The soft tacos are to die for and I would strongly recommend sampling one of each meat type on their plate of 3. Wow.

I can't wait to get back to Chimney Rock - specifically to eat there again.
