Two men on a mission against Tios

After reading my nacho posts earlier this week, Sarah, a friend in my lab suggested I check out Epic Portions saying, "It's these guys who blog about eating out in Ann Arbor and how much they hate Tios." I took a look and Sarah was right, the guys on Epic Portions really hate Tios. Here's an excerpt from the blog:
Tios – A Rant (May 13, 2009)
Tios Receives a Good Review???? (August 5, 2009)
Dear Tios, You Suck (November 20, 2009)

Amazing. I was hoping I could continue to read about John and Jeremy's anti-Tios rants, but apparently they have quit posting on the subject; they declared victory after Tios failed to win "Best Mexican Food" on the Com this year. Fortunately, they will continue reviewing local food.


  1. I couldn't agree more with this guy. Banditos and Tios both suck. People I work with seem to love them, but I just chalk that up to them not having had real Mexican before. I've always wondered why Ann Arbor doesn't have decent Mexican. Sabor Latino is decent and Darcy's carts carnitas are great, so maybe we are getting there.

  2. Ya know, I didn't like Tios before they moved, but now I like them. The food isn't the best ever, but if you mix it up yourself (for example, adding their "number 4 salsa" to everything), it makes it pretty good. I like the wet burrito with number 4. The atmosphere is also pretty good for just chilling with friends (and huge margaritas).

  3. When I was in high school my friends and I would go there for taco Tuesday a lot. Haven't gone there much since then. Definitely like the number 4 sauce.

  4. The best Mexican in the area is La Fiesta Mexicana in Ypsi. It's on W. Cross near Perrin. Highly recommended.
