I have lived in Riverside for a long time and I love Mexican food, so I’m not sure why it’s taken me so long to try Tio’s Tacos in Riverside.
This place is a trip. It is filled with original works of art that are made up of “things that have been utilized, and in this country considered useless, then discarded”.
If you haven’t been here, you should give it a try and spend some time wandering through the art-filled compound.
I didn’t take pictures of everything. There is much more to see.
About the artist…
We sat in one of the outside dining areas. No matter where you sit, there is plenty to look at.
Plenty of birds, too.
Our bill was very reasonable. About $30 for three of us. Although we ordered water bottles, Tio’s also offers flavored margaritas and beer.
Chips and salsa…
Chorizo and egg burrito…
Carne asada burrito…
Carne asada tacos (they usually come with onions and cilantro)…
When you visit Tio’s Tacos, make sure you look up and down while walking through the gardens. The art is everywhere.
Tio’s Tacos is hard to miss, but here’s the address just in case:
3948 Mission Inn Ave, Riverside, CA 92501
