“Great TexMex in Round Rock”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

The food and the service was great. The queso was warm and cheesy with just the right amount of pice and the chips are warm, fresh, thin and crisp. The tea was refilled promply and old and fresh and my caldo was really good, chuck full of cabbage, carrots, potato, and zuchini and tnder chunks of beef. The broth was very tasty! The corn tortillas were flavorful. The young woman that waited on me was very nice and a very efficient waitress who checked on me often. I will frequent Tio Dan's since i live lose by, just sorry i waited so long to try it. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is the restaurant could use some updating,however it was very clean.

“Fresh food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

This was our first visit to Tio Dan's and we were happy that the food was cooked fresh. We had the puffy taco and quesadilla plates and both were good. The chips and puffy tacos are a little on the greasy side because they are freshly cooked and the chicken wasn't really drained before being put on the tacos which made the bottoms a little soggy. The flour tortilla's that come with every plate are warm and fresh.
