El Tio Tex-Mex Grill - Tex-Mex Chain in Several Area Locations, Including Great Falls Shopping Plaza


Recommended Posts

Local chain El Tio Tex-Mex Grill expanding where the former Great Falls Tavern (closed), then more recently Triny's Mexican restaurant existed, but recently also closed.  This will be their 4th location and they are working on a refresh/remodel before opening in the near future.  Location is excellent at the corner of Georgetown Pike (Rte 193) and Walker Road.

Assuming it's like the El Tio in Falls Church, it's perfectly fine Salvadorean/Mex.  Globby and salty but good. The service is always really solicitous, and it could not be more family friendly. Oyamel this is not.  Fun fact that different family members also operate Los Tios if Del Ray.

I'm a fan of the McLean location, which, pre-Covid, churned out solid Tex-Mex food in a family-friendly dining room with a neighborhood vibe. Now, during Covid (and perhaps before), they've put real thought into their take-out service, carefully packaging meals and accoutrements for dining at home (including free sides of chips and salsa that you would normally get when dining in). This place checks a lot of boxes: taste, cost, quality, quantity, and convenience.
