Always enjoy eating at Tios. Great food and prices. Fast service. They will come to your table and make guacamole for you. It's really good. Appetizers are amazing. Love the bacon wrapped shrimp with cheese inside.

Ate there 8/11 around 5pm. Restaurant is a bit off the main road in an attractive building. There is some outside seating but we went inside and were immediately seated. The menu is diverse, the salsa very good, and the beer was good and cold. We had the tableside guacamole that others rave about. We found it only average and... More

The fresh tableside quac is very good! Would recommend it for sure. I ordered the vegetarian quesadilla. It was packed full of great veggies and had wonderful flavor. My husband ordered the Suizas enchiladas and they were satisfying. He said not the best he has ever had but would get them again. The service was very speedy and friendly! Will... More

Tio's is a great spot for lunch or dinner. The wait staff is friendly and attentive and the food is good. I had chicken fajitas and the seasoning was just right. Service was fast and super efficient.

This restaurant has the best guacamole. Made fresh right at your table. Perfection! Wonderful selection, but my favorite is the fish tacos

The atmosphere was very welcoming with seating inside and on the patio. It's the typical chain Tex-Mex restaurant, but stands out because of the homemade tortillas which they will serve with butter on request. The margaritas were the best in Poplar Bluff and the food was good as well. The wait time for the food and service was average.

Food and atmosphere are really good! The service was good and we did not have to wait a long time for seating or service. We had four different entrees at our table and everyone was pleased with what they ordered.

Checked reviews and I know there is not much in this area. Chips are not homemade. My server was an older lady who was not only rude but never came back to check on us. Food was not much better than Taco Bell. I do not recommend . Oh and a note to the server.... I am usually a big... More
