Restaurant details
Reviewed September 28, 2013

I've had a lot Mexican meals in my 47 years of my life. I've had fine Mexican Meals in Mexico, New Mexico, Arizona, Texas, and California. I have to place Tia's Tacos at the top of my list for Mexican cuisine. Such underpriced food for high a quality meal. Fresh from the garden ingredients, served quickly from a family friendly staff. If you like small quaint restaurants, Tia's is the place for you.

This is the first place we went after getting off the Ferry! Food was authentic and fantastic!!! Service was good with very pleasant staff! The location is off the beaten path but within walking distance of downtown! This is a must eat at when you come to the island

If you want real Mexican, Salvadoran and Guatemalan food, this is your place. I can't say enough about this restaurant. No matter what you order from their menu, you will be pleased. If you have never had a Pupusa, you must have one. When you get there just say "una pupusa de chicharron" just like Felix..

Grande Burrito, Tacos, Chimichangas, Tamales, Quesadillas and more.

When in Friday Harbor, Do not miss eating at Tia's Tacos. If you can't find it, just ask a local.

Im freaking out, this is so cool! congratulations! I love you and Im so proud of you and your staff. xoxoxoxo
Tia's Tacos is a family style, authentic Mexican restaurant. It is really cool, our family and friends photos are all over the walls, photos of all of us in Mexico, it has a very fun and friendly vibe. Gail has always been a great cook, but she really brings the flavor and soul of Mexico to Friday Harbor with the al la carte style, fresh, and healthy tacos.

Words can't describe how great of a place this is. Notice the lack of negative feedback. The quality of the food, provided by down-to-earth employees, and stellar ownership in an authentic environment does all of the speaking. If you need a change of pace, perhaps a moment to slow down to help you remember why you came to an island in the first place - this is the place to run to. Whether you're a local needing a quick, delicious, fulfilling bite to eat or your a tourist wanting to try something you won't find anywhere else on these waters - you'll be happy you did. There's a reason why no one can find a negative thing to say. I fully support this local establishment in any way possible - and hope that others continue doing so. Well deserved! Props to Tia's Tacos for an amazing season! -Ace.
