One of the most amazing wonderful places I have ever been! they are attentive, thoughtful, and the owners treat you as if your the only ones there! (hard to do when your lobby and place is packed! food si off the chain, and I have now seen why so many people love it!

My wife and I went into Tio Carlos for a late lunch on Friday 7-10.
We were met by the most friendliest waitresses i have ever encountered.
I ordered the speciality of the house Tio Carlos Shrimp.
Our waitress said "get ready to be in mexican heaven" and she wasnt kidding. This dinner was the best i have ever eaten. I have visited many mexiacan restaurants and Tio Carlos off Rosecrans is simply the best.

They have good food at Tio's Calos. The plates will fill you up.
The parking is a little difficult as well as getting to the restaurant but the food is worth the hassle.

Try it and you will like it

I don't order carnitas from anywhere except here because it does not compare. Everything they serve is delicious so you can't go wrong! You will never go back to El Torito or On the Border again (unless it's for Happy Hour!)

This place has the best Mexican food in San Diego. El Torito and On the Border or any of the mexican food places in Old Town cant compete. Repeat customer. Keep going back for the food. Only flaw is bad waitresses. They hire young, immature college girls. Very lousy service! But if you get the owners wife, or Louise, they are wonderful!!

We went to Tio Carlos' Mexican Restaurant with a bunch of friends and sampled everyone's plates. All I can say is yum! Everything without exception was very, very good.

I have been going there for 15 years and they have the best Carnitas around. The margaritas aren't to bad either.
