“Good Food and Friendly Service”
Reviewed 19 August 2012

We eat here pretty often and the food is consistently good. The service is good. It's not a fancy place but it is always busy. Not a lot to choose from in Hemphill, but this place is good and the prices are very reasonable.

“Frequent Visitor”
Reviewed 1 August 2012

We eat at El Tio at least once a week most weeks, and we really enjoy it. The reason I said it was only average is the fact that it has been gradually getting worse. The food is always good, but they have been having more issues getting the orders correct or bringing you all of it. Also, since we go there so often the waitstaff seems to think they do not need to treat us as they do the rest of the patrons. We are there paying just like everyone else and should not have to wait while they tend to other customers over us, because they know we will continue to come. If they want to treat us like family that's great, but we would enjoy the family discount.

“Great food and reasonable prices!”
Reviewed 29 April 2012

Stopped here on one of our late afternoon motorcycle rides after getting fuel across the street in Hemphill, TX. Serrvice was quick, friendly, and the food was very tasty. Locals seemed to like the place as well.
