Dear Tios, You Suck

by John on November 20, 2009 · 11 comments

Tios’ latest attempt to lure Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor residents into eating their terrible food is an eating competition involving 5 pounds of nachos, called Mount Nacheesmo.  I would normally be pretty pumped about an eating competition in my hometown of Ypsilanti, but I am on a strict boycott of anything involving Tios Mexican Cafe.

In true Tios fashion, the nachos closely resemble something you could easily make at home.  Check out that guacamole.  Look familiar?  Maybe a certain guacamole served by Taco Bell?  Or something that fixes leaks in your plumbing?  Sick.  This looks like 4.5 pounds of tortilla chips with nacho topping garnishes.  I think I’ll keep my $29.99 and Tios can keep their t-shirts.  Boo Tios.  Boo.

Eeeeew, those look bad. Hey, who ended up winning the Cheesecake Factory card?

Craig November 22, 2009 at 1:29 am

It looks like they barely put any cheese on there and for $30, that’s just sad.

Especially considering I can get an 8lb burrito(that’s actually edible, unlike the food at Tios) for $15.

Craig, are you referring to the Burrito Gigante at Bandidos in Chapel Hill? 6 lbs of delicious chicken/steak fajita + all the fixins for $15? Too good to be true?!

I believe he’s referring to the 8 lb. burrito at Pancho Villas. http://www.epicportions.com/2009/04/26/pancho-villas-8-lb-burrito/

Oh that’s right – the Burrito Gigante is the one we’re gonna destroy whenever you get yourself down here!

that looks disgusting. you can get better nachos in the port authority bowling alley in nyc. i don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.

I made better nachos in my house last night in Scotland (a country with no good Mexican food), with ingredients from a German grocery store.

“Maze and Blue” deli? C’mon John… you are from the Ann Arbor area, right? It’s not “Maze” as in mice–it’s “Maize” as in the school color.

Whoops.
