“Mediocre”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

Drinks - A+! Food is very average - Anita's is much better. Nice to be able to eat outside on a nice day.

“Fun place especially on Leesburg's First Friday of the month celebrations...with outdoor seating-”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

Food is a great value and tasty/authentic, we waited 30 mins for a table, (not bad at all for a Friday night) but to charge $12.00 for a virgin strawberry daiquiri was ridiculous. Chicken quesadillas were delicious- but a smaller meal. If you are super hungry, go for the burrito platter. Free Chips are yummy and thin... Their salsa was ok but no where near as good as Uncle Julio's in Reston. Inside the restaurant was VERY SMOKY but it was from the food, not cigarettes. I much prefer eating outside. If you do eat outside, ask for downstairs seating. If you get a drink from the bar while waiting for your table, Virginia laws state you must be "inside the ropes". I don't like the upstairs ropes off section bc too many people squeeze in there and too many pedestrians walk close to you while you are eating. Some people don't mind that- but I like a little space.

“Best Choice for Mexican in Loudoun County/Leesburg”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

Good Mexican is hard to come by in Loudoun County, VA. In four years of living here, Los Tios is the best I've had yet.

It's in the old mill in Leesburg, and parking is across the street - about a one minute walk. The Mill has several restaurants in it.

The service is fast and friendly, and there are two outdoor seating/dining areas as well as the main dining inside.

Prices are reasonable, and the food is much better than other Mexican Places in the area. I would recommend Los Tios over El Sol Azteca and Los Toltecos.

“Refreshingly simple Mexican”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

Having a craving for margaritas while on a trip to Leesburg, we ended up at Los Tios based on others' recommendations. It really lived up to our expectations! The chips were so light and fresh and the salsa was so simple and clearly homemade. Most of our group had fajitas of some kind and we all enjoyed them. The food was not at all spicy, infact it all had almost a sweet taste to it, but we were a little nervous to try the habanero sauce they provided! The small center where this restaurant is located is also really neat!
