In a quaint home, Tia's is what mommacita would have served! Most of the excellent food and the tacos are just little like Mexico! No alcohol, just pure and simple food, served with love and love!

Better known as "Tina's Tacos" this place is great. Tina (the Frisbee golf queen) runs the place with efficiency and humor. Tacos are great and the price is fair.

I ordered the beef burrito and my husband ordered a chicken quesadilla. Mine was tasteless and inedible. The chunks of beef were undercooked and very red. My husband liked his but said it tasted a lot like chicken pot pie.
