El Tio Tex-Mex Grill Restaurant Review

: Falls Church is a destination for anyone seeking interesting and perhaps ethnic restaurants, from Burmese to Bolivian as well as this Tex-Mex place, where one of the favorite dishes is the steak fajitas. But you really can’t go wrong with anything on the menu, from the grilled chorizo burrito to the Mexican combo plate of chicken taco and beef enchilada. More Americanized --- and Texan --- than Mexican, the restaurant presents the Latino flavors that Americans have grown to like. Its sister restaurant is in Gainesville (7527 Linton Hall Rd., 703-753-0826), and both destinations fill with everyone from couples to large families. Good fun, and the food is reasonably priced.
