The food here is delicious! I definitely recommend the Pibil Nachos, Tinga Quesadillia, and the Short Rib Tacos, but you really can't go wrong with anything on the menu

Had the Tinga burrito at lunch and it was good. The portion was really huge and it should be because it was around $15. It's a good place to order a dish and to share it with another person rather to order individual dishes. You have to find street parking.

I particularly enjoyed Tinga for their gnarly artwork splattered all over the walls - raining tacos, tacos riding unicorns, 6-legged cats eating tacos! It's unique and definitely entertaining. I also enjoyed Tinga for their restaurant style ambiance for street taco prices. I was surprised to find entrees here for less than $10! I got the chicken tostado plate that came with two tostadas and chips and salsa. The chicken was moist and flavorful and did not need any additional salsa or hot sauce. The bf ordered their Coke infused shredded pork tacos topped with crushed chicharones. It was definitely interesting, but wasn't for me. The taste of Coke was so prevalent that it confused my taste buds. It's a nice change of scenery to get quality food at great prices in a sit-down type place.

I have been meaning to write this review for a few months now and after every tasty time we go to Tinga I tell myself to write it. So, earlier today as my family and I were enjoying another amazing meal at Tinga I felt compelled to finally start writting it. I had the Prime Flat Iron Steak (melt in your mouth fabulousness), my husband always gets the Carnitas (FTW amazing) and our teenaged twin boys both get the Genesis Burritos (which disappear and never any left overs). And the Cotija Cheese, the white cheese that is sprinkled on the beans, is a wonderful addition of authentic flavor. The staff is always accommodating and friendly, especially Brian and Bill. They always make us feel welcome and get everything just right. Modern day taqueria that we will be enjoying for years to come. Love it!!!!!

We've seen Tinga transition from a counter to full-service restaurant (building out an adjacent space in the process). Through it all, Tinga's food remains its best selling point. While others may debate about authenticity, I suggest focusing on the thoughtfulness and care taken with the food. In this discussion, the food shines. From what I can discern, Tinga makes everything from scratch, from the horchata to the chips, you can (extremely positive) impact of this restaurant's comprehensive view on flavor on each plate and drink put on the table. Tinga is family friendly and has solid options for sensitive palates as well as vegetarians. The addition of the magical cauliflower rice appeases those with a carb-restrictive mindset.

Love the Chicken Tinga Nachos and the Mushroom Quesadillas. The staff is really nice, and the wood tables are beautiful.

The Tinga was dissatisfying to say the least. I ordered guacamole and salsa- so they just put my guacamole in soup bowl of salsa. There was stinky crumbles of cheese on my tortilla chips. We seriously thought someone vomited nearby for a few minutes, only to find that it was the cheese. The bean paste was... just that. Bland bean paste. If I didn't want to taste my food I'd smoke like a chimney and eat at Carrows. The carnitas was a bit chuckie cheese-mcdonalds. My girlfriend even kept a grey tortilla in her purse to show people what the tinga was serving and she even threw up later that evening. plus they didn't serve Margaritas

Tinga hasn't shared anything with you.

People are more likely to share with you if you add them to your circles.
