My husband and I went to Tres Hombres for a weekday lunch. It was beautiful inside! The staff were so friendly and welcoming as well as appropriately attentive. We both ordered a combo plate for about $9 each and enjoyed unlimited chips and homemade salsa, which was awesome!! We highly recommend this restaurant!

I have eaten here many times and am always pleased. The service is usually very good. My favorite item here is their Carnitas. Big helping that tastes great! The tortillas are good. Plenty of space for a large group. Don't forget to grab a lime mint on your way out.

Tres hombres is a cute Mexican restaurant, it has kind of a cantina feel to it. The waiter was nice without being overly attentive and the chips were homemade. The food was good and the prices were pretty fair.

Excellent food and service and a very large drink list. The salsa that they bring with the nachos when you seat, is incredible. It alone is worth the visit. Food is great, just a bit on the greasy side, but overall very good Tex-Mex

Hi Jefferson, Thank you so much for joining us and leaving a review! So awesome to hear that you loved it and especially the salsa - that is one of our staples. We feel we have perfected our fresh chips and salsa after so many years :) If you like some spice... Have you tried the roasted salsa? Cheers! More

Before a Celebration of Life for a Dear Friend, a Group of my 7 old friends and I stopped in Tres Hombres for drinks and dinner.

If you want the basic "white bread" Mexican, this is the place! It's been around forever and it was full of retirees and people who have eaten Americanized Mexican food for years. I ordered some spicy hot sauce and there wasn't a hint of heat in it. The fish tacos were deep fried with tartar sauce poured over them. Blah.... More

Sorry about the title. I feel so forced to come up with something creative. Anyway, Tres Hombres is a nice Utah-Authentic restaurant. High quality "Mexican" food at a decent price. The servings are huge, so you will get full. It is a nice setting also. Surprisingly quaint in the middle of a busy area of the city. The parking is... More

I have eaten at this wonderful restaurant for many years. This last visit I ordered the Veracruz enchiladas which are filled with crab, green chilies and jack cheese and covered with tomatillo sauce and sour cream.

The chicken fajitas are well-seasoned and big enough for two. The beer and tequila lists are very good, and I appreciated the deck even though it was small and overlooked the parking lot and street; sometimes it is just nice to eat outside and feel the sun on one's shoulders while she eats. I wouldn't recommend the guacamole starter -... More
