The fact that this place is packed of an evening should tell you something. The food is yummy and the staff are friendly and efficient. Great, relaxed ambiance and reasonable prices. Best restaurant to hit on a Friday night.

My wife and I stopped at Tia Helita's on the advice of a friend and we were very glad we did! The food and service were great and the prices were reasonable. I was surprised that the chips and salsa were not free like they are at the chain restaurants - but - after I tasted them I understood why. They are homemade, inexpensive and excellent! They (and the food) are a far cry from what you usually get at a larger Mexican restaurant and every bit as good as I have ever gotten from the small, family-owned restaurants. The reason is that Tia Helita's is a family owned restaurant using their own recipes. We both had the beef enchiladas and thought they were great! We were both glad we went and will stop there again!

I love Tia Heletas. I moved away from the flint area 1-1/2 years ago after my huband had passed on. Whenever I go up there I have to stop there and bring food back to where I reside now. I have tried other mexican cuisines where I live now but, they just do not compare. I commend you and your wonderful food. Especially your seafood burritos.

Tia Helita's is in a relatively good area unlike many of the more "authentic" Mexican Restaurants. It has a nicely decorated inside with a certain appealing type of class. However, the food there is certainly lacking. In my experience certainly the poorest attempt at "authentic mexican". But try it for yourself! Then try La Azteca or La Familia Morales and notice the difference!

BTW Prices here are highly unreasonable. They even charge for chips and salsa!

I love Tia Helita's except on Friday and Saturday night as it gets real crowded. I guess that's because everyone wants to go there. I love the fireplaces and lamps it gives a romantic feel to the restaurant. The service is always good. It is always clean. It has such nice decor and I see the owner around often supervising. If you want a romantic dinner I would go during the week. Sometimes its hard to find parking.
All in all I would always go back there.

Many people avoid the more "authentic" Mexican restaurants in Flint because most are in dodgy neighborhoods. Tia Heletas is right on Saginaw Street, lots of safe parking. It's fairly busy, friendly atmosphere and good service. The food is merely average - not awful, not great.

chips and salsa were excellent
cheese & onion enchiladas are also outstanding
I don't eat red meat, and the menu is a bit heavy on the carnivore side, but most people like that.
Great atmosphere.
