Very disappointing food. Flame starter soaked beef fajitas, puffed cheese entree tastes like velveeta. I will not return

We've been coming to this location for over 20 years. The food, margaritas and service are always good and consistent. Not every Mexican restaurant still has the cheese puff on the menu, but they still do. Gotta have my Los Tios fix once a month!

The restaurant is located across from Meyerland Mall and parking was limited. We went there for lunch and the place was very busy with a constant flow of customers. Many were recognized by the staff by name and were apparent regulars. They have a limited lunch menu which was more than adequate. Servings are large, well seasoned and flavorful and... More

This is a good, reliable tex mex restaurant. The chips are crisp and both red and green salsas are tasty. My family reported the frozen margaritas to be very good. The service was attentive without being intrusive. We ordered a variety of standard dishes (fajitas, enchiladas, rice, beans, guacamole etc) and everything tasted good. There is a good mix of...

This used to be a wonderful restaurant. We have been going here for many years. Now service is very slow. Only the water and iced tea servers do a great job. Took us 20 minutes to receive our food, and it was cold! Waitress had an attitude when we brought it to her attention. Re-served same food, but heated up!... More

Great Mexican food is you don't mind calories, greasy, and cholesterol. Excellent Chile con Queso, Enchiladas, and Guacamole salad. Excellent Margarita which I asked the Bar Tender to make from scratch with Lime Juice instead of a mix.

We haven't visited Los Tios since before the flooding in May 2015. It looks like they have had 75% of the staff turn over. Service was excellent and the food was very good. I was impressed with the support servers (chips/drinks/etc) as they were on top of their game. I had a stuffed puffy taco with beef fajita meet and... More

Just ok. Old and full of older people. The food was just ok but it seems like there is a large following from the local area. Don't think it is up to current standards.
