Delicious food! It was so hard to decide what to order. I started with a juice that was as beautiful as it was delicious (a triple layer mango/pineapple/cranberry juice). I then had the crepes filled with spinach, mushrooms, baby artichokes and ricotta. The flavors were...More

Breakfast is great fun. We enjoyed the artichoke scramble, sautéed apple and walnut pancakes, and a taco with chorizo, onion, died potatoes, cilantro, cheddar and mozzarella cheese. Bright and cheerful, this family run restaurant has limited seating, so plan accordingly. (The fresh flowers are a...More

Decent value and big flavors. Good menu variety, authentic Mexican flair, good spices. Very casual and simple, but worth it.

Friendly, delicious food, nice music, very comfortable kind of place for breakfast, lunch, and now, dinner. We had the enchiladas for breakfast with coffee. Both were perfect. I like these kinds of places that are clearly family run.

Traveling up the coast, we found Tico's on Trip advisor. Look for a small red and white sign on reservation road and turn in. Tico's interior is small and dated, but the food and service is excellent and speedy. My daughter requested chocolate chip pancakes(...More

Ticos is one of several excellent Mexican/American breakfast and lunch places in Marina. Food is good, service is friendly, parking not a problem. Lunch is also good, though the burgers are just average. A popular place, and rightly so.
