Ordered beef enchiladas and it didn't have any flavor. The beans were too watery, just wasted my money.

Four of us had lunch there and non-of us could finish our meals. The food was excellent and the service was good. The parking is excellent.

The Chile Verde is the best of everything. They have a large menu selection with many different items all very good.

We eat here often and go back for their delicious burritos. My favorite is the Carnitas Burrito- very generous amount of tasty pork.

Tico's has great mexican food but the menu is limited. Its a very popular dine in and mostly take out place. I would consider their prices pretty high for a mexican restaurant without much ambiance. But the food is good. If you don't eat meat,...More
