Best Food In Town
Call to place your order for great home-style cooking!
The Original Tico's Tacos was opened back in 1957 in San Jose, Ca by Luis Hevia. Years later he and his wife Claudia decided to move to Gilroy, Ca where the opened another restaurant Vallarta's. They had that restaurant for some years but knew Gilroy wasn't home. They went down to Salinas and found the perfect building to call their own. Tico's Tacos has been standing in Salinas, Ca since July 1980! Luis has since passed away but his legacy has been kept alive through his wife Claudia and his daughter Danielle close behind.
We refuse to compromise on quality in our restaurant. That's why we source our fresh ingredients from local farmers' markets. No matter what time of year, you can be sure you're eating the best of the season.
With the outbreak and panic of
Covid-19 we are taking above and beyond measures to protect you our customers and our staff.
What are we doing?
- Increasing the frequency of our cleaning practices throught our resturant.
-We have unfortunetley had to say bye bye to our fully stocked salsa bar (for now) BUT ask the girls for our
pre-made House Salsa we have ready to go behind the counter.
-We will have sanitizer at the front counter for all customers, there is also a public wall hanging sanitizer dispenser by the bathroom.
-All of us at Tico's will continue to stay informed on preventative measures as updated by the CDC.
-We encourage making head nods the new hand shake :)
MUCH MUCH love
-The Tico's Family
