Fun and Funky Art at Tio’s Tacos

Vehicle provided by Kia

I’ve seen pictures of the funky artwork at Tio’s Tacos on Instagram for many years. When planning a day trip to visit the California Citrus State Historic Park with my daughter in Riverside, I made sure to add to our itinerary a stop at Tito’s Tacos for lunch.

Many of my friends who have been to Tio’s recommended that we do not go during the lunch or dinner rush. It is a popular place, and there is often a line that wraps around the building to order food. Thanks to my friend’s recommendations, we arrived around two o’clock, and practically had the place all to ourselves.

The restaurant is an Instagrammers dream! I parked our Kia Sorento right under a giant skeleton sculpture riding a bicycle, and then we spent over an hour walking around. The restaurant has a huge garden that is full of the coolest things – it is one of the best art exhibits that I have ever seen. There was a palm tree covered in Barbie Dolls, bicycles on the roof and more. There was so much to see that we could have spent an entire day at the restaurant and still wouldn’t have seen everything.

Once we were done taking over a thousand pictures, we went inside the restaurant for lunch. They have an extensive menu, but we ordered our favorite thing – tacos. We clinked our Coca-Cola glasses together as a toast to our fun mother and daughter afternoon, and then savored the delicious tacos.

Cheers to the weekend!! Happy FRI-YAY!! @tiostacos #tiostacos #fridayfunday
