This has to be one of the best places we ate at while here. All the food came in baggies but was the best food I have ever eaten.

For years we have deemed Sunday's ribs and chicken night. Ribs are sold by the kilo. Go early as he sells out!

We love getting Tino's chicken and ribs and enjoying a quiet meal at home. It is a great bargain and really delicious, wish he was there every day instead of only wkend.

We tried the ribs, boneless pork and chicken. The chicken was the best; great flavor and very moist. The ribs were good, but I missed having BBQ sauce. The boneless pork was excellent, and was wonderful on the tortillas. It came with beans, rice and cole slaw, though there weren't many beans in the sauce. The cole slaw was vinagary.... More

This is another must eat place. Tino's ribs come with sides and you can order with or without the bone. He is only there on weekends but it is not to be missed.

We've gone down the road to Tino's backyard on Sundays before and had ribs which were OK, but we also tried the chicken then and loved it. So, this time that's all we got, it's the best chicken! Your meal will come with the tortillas, rice, beans and salsa. We tried eating it on the beach once and it was... More

Timo is really nice but the Ribs if you want to call them that are really disappointing . They are cross cut niblettes. The are not tender although the flavor is good. The chicken is better you can ask for white or dark. The prices are cheap. It comes with sides .But he is only open on the weekends .... More

I had the chicken and was very happy and surprised with how great it was. It is such a little hole in the wall, that normally I would have walked past it. But it was well worth the stop. Only open Sat and Sun so make sure you're you get there?

Hard to describe the deliciousness of Tino's poc chuc. I'll say this: once you start eating it you won't be able to stop until it's all gone, only buy what you can eat in one sitting. So good!
