Tio Lucas is a fun spot for cocktails and listen to live music. The food is pretty good. Beef was not my favorite but table side Cesear Salad was great! Atmosphere can be pretty lively!

We had drinks there this afternoon. Quaint with local charm. Nice to see & talk with some locals, but not an elegant place to say the least.

Came here with my husband for lunch, food and service was excellent. We ordered bistec de chorizo. The plate wass big enough to share. For appetizer we also shared the tlalpeño soup. Please ask your waiter about the size of your plate because most plates are large enough to share

Wow! What a fantastic dining experience. The cuisine is outstanding. The staff is friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable of the dishes one savors here! The location is nestled in Centro among the fantastic historical streets and sites of San Miguel. This is a must visit dining experience.

We scouted out a few restaurants before the rest of our family came to spend time here in SMA. This was one place we went back to several times. Great atmosphere, staff are like family, dishes are all delicious and creative, prices are moderate. A++ experience.

Tio Lucas is always a very good option for a complete lunch or dinner. The quality of its food goes hand in hand with the quality of the service and of the place. I have been to Tio Lucas each time that I go to San Miguel, and this is since may be ten or more years ago. To go... More

We were sorely disappointed in the quality of both the food and the hostess. The hostess couldn't stop eating her food to say goodbye as we left. Also, this restaurant allow smoking, and no matter where one sits, there is plenty of smoke to accompany your dining experience. There are so many great restaurants in San Miguel. This is not...

Many of the reviews capture Tio's perfectly. The place is lovely, the waiters attentive (but really cloying) and the food was marginal to really bad. Steaks would have been Golden Corral quality IF they were properly cooked. Of the 3 steaks at our table (one Medium rare, one medium and one medium-well) none were done correctly. All were raw in...
