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. The table was immediately set up for us as the evening hour was just beginning. Our server filled our water glasses and took cocktail orders allowing us to go over the ample multi page... More

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. My friend ordered the Zacatecas enchiladas which are filled with crab, Gulf Shrimp, green chilies, and onion with red sauce and jack cheese. We... More

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

I ordered a combination plate. The enchilada was good, but the relleno was just unacceptable. One layer of cheese, one layer of poblano, and two very thick layers of breading. When I asked the waitress why was the relleno prepared that way (as opposed to cheese INSIDE the poblano) the answer that it was easier to prepare this way in... More

Hello Webtraveler99, I want to start off saying we are glad you loved the enchilada but are upset the relleno didn't leave you satisfied. I am going to look into what happened and why you would receive that explanation when that is not the case. We take pride that everything in our restaurant is made fresh from quality ingredients!

This restaurant has been around forever so that says something. The restaurant business is tough. This is consistently fine food, nothing out of the ordinary.
