This is NOT a chain, and you'll be thankful that you try it! Recommend the chimichanga. Get there before 7pm, or before 6pm on Friday for a seat.

Ridiculous. They had the nerve to send me 7 nachos in an almost empty container. I wasnt even mad. I was laughing, never seen anything like it. Avoid, unless you want to spend 7 for a laugh.

Los Tios Grill - what a great place for margaritas with salsa & chips! The entrees are outstanding too. When the weather, have a seat outside, you will love to Del Ray scenery. This place is not to be missed!!

The salsa was not what I expect. It had a very taco sauce flavor to it. The food was just average. The guacamole was excellent, big portion, so plan to share.

You can get take-out. Don't think they deliver though.
