Our friends took us here last night for our first time. My hubby has lived in Irving for over 20 years and never knew this spot was here. The food was phenomenal! I had the chile relleno and my hubby had the beef enchiladas. I can't remember what my other friends had, but let's just say their plates were cleaned as well! Our waiter Sam was fantastic as well. He provided over the top service and even customized a drink for me since it wasn't on the menu. Thanks Sam!!! We'll be back very soon! More...

I highly recommend the brisket street tacos and jalapeño margaritas! Guacamole was fresh and delicious as well. Nothing fancy, but it was good food, friendly service, and a relaxed comfortable atmosphere. There was a nice little patio area but we didn't sit out there since it was raining. More...

We love Tio Carlos. Unfortunately, we learned yesterday that Angel is no longer employed there. He was the best!!! He made this place great!!! Too bad Carlos had to run him off. If Carlos knows what good for his business, he'll ask Angel to come back!!! We may try some new places if not, and that'll be ashame. I've spoken with a lot of other regulars, and they feel the same. DO THE RIGHT THING CARLOS...HIRE ANGEL BACK!!! More...

Carlos and his staff welcome me as a friend. Guess it is because this is my favorite Mexican Restaurant in the DFW area, and I am there often! The fajitas are my favorite! I am on a special medically supervised eating plan. Angel (a great waiter) always makes certain my meal is prepared exactly to my specifications. Carlos and his team also give back to Irving by feeding (once a month) a different fire station each month for all 3 shifts! They support the police and fire fighters with special offers. Love a local eatery that goes the extra mile to not only have awesome food, but give back to the community. Tell Carlos "hi" when you make this a favorite place! More...

My husband and I have started to go to Tio's. We have really enjoyed the food. Very fresh And very flavorful. The last couple of times we have been there on odd hours. It has not been busy. The waitress ( female). Sorry can't remember her name... She is not very good. She's not on top with filling the drinks. She brought us our check when we were not even finished eating. And we were celebrating a birthday and wanted to order sopapilla. We placed an order and they were placed on the table while some were still eating and dirty dishes needed to be cleaned off the table..... I think training is in order. We will be going back but will probably ask for another table and another waiter if she happens to get us again. Thank you... More...

Tio Carlos is making the best Mexican food in Irving. I have lived in Irving for almost 20yrs, and have eaten in many places. We do have good Mexican food in Irving, but Tio Carlos is now the best. Excellent food made with fresh ingredients. I have been to Tio Carlos maybe 10 times now, and I am still enjoying exploring their menu. Everything I have ordered I have enjoyed. Last night I shared with my wife the spinach quesadillas. The spinach was extremely fresh, and cook with just the right amount of garlic to make it exceptional. We also has the avocado enchiladas. I asked for the tomatillo sauce and with the fried egg. The mixture of textures and flavors was outstanding. The service is consistently good, even when they are very busy. Carlos is in the dining room personally making sure everyone is getting good service and great food. More...
