We had lunch at this restaurant today. It was my first visit and won’t be the last. We got an excellent service from Gaby, food was good and served pretty fast. Prices are reasonable for the area. Portions were pretty generous; even for kids’ meals....I loved that they had Mexican background music. We had a beautiful view to the lake and a wonderful time. Looking forward to coming back to the wonderful cabin where we were staying: #Crestlinecozycabin and to this restaurant.More

We walk in and the girl behind the counter says, "How many?" I say 2. She says, "There's tables out there." Never got up, just pointed towards an open door to the deck. Turns out she would be our waitress. They were not crowded at...all, maybe 25% capacity. We selected a table and another girl brought us some chips and salsa. Salsa was okay, chips were cold and tasted old, stale. Waitress asked what we'd like to drink and my wife asked for the drink menu. The waitress gave her a nasty look and went and got it. She ordered a margarita and I a Coke. She asked what we'd like to order at the same time as the drinks. We had been there about 3 minutes. We told her we'd need a minute. 20 minutes later she came back. 20 MINUTES. While waiting for our food, we asked the other girl for some more chips and salsa. She brought salsa, no chips, and walked away leaving our empty chip bowl. Food came fairly quickly and was okay at best. No one ever came by to ask about it or see if we needed anything else. We ate and then waited for someone to come by so we could get to go containers. I finally got up and went to the front desk to ask for them. The girls were standing there talking and acted like I was bothering them. The girl, not our waitress, brought us containers and left. I had to call her back to ask for the check. She didn't think to bring it with her. DUH! I'm normally a very good tipper, 20% at least. The bill was just under $48, I left $50. Just over $2 tip and that may have been too much. We will never go back. Taco Bell has better food and better service for a whole lot less.More

Good food but the worst service of any restaurant around. Our family got so tired of it, we quit going there. One afternoon, the wife and I were the only ones in the place and it still took 15 minutes for the owner to take...our order. Complaining doesn't help. They simply act as if they don't care.More

Tony's was part of the reason for this trip. We used to have a family cabin and really missed the food. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu!

We had heard from Stone Creek Bistro that Toni's was the place for Mexican Food. We had the good fortune of having the owner serve us. We had a great Cadillac Margarita on the rocks with Tajin. DELISH! The chips were thin and crispy with...great homemade salsa. The we ordered Shrimp Fajitas and a Chicken Burrito. I asked for the burrito to be customized and it was perfect. The ambience is festive and it is nice to sit at the window with the view of the lake. The bathrooms are super tidy as well.More

Love the casual atmosphere for good Mexican food either indoors, patio, or screened room. Great Margaritas. Loved the menu. We’ve been there often. Right across the street from Lake Gregory, which designates us as A Playful City. Everyone in our mountain village knows Toni’s. A...great family place. Come visit! Maybe we’ll be there.More

I have been coming to this restaurant for many years. There is plenty of patio space to sit outside in the summer, which overlooks our the lake. There food and service is good. The only thing I have noticed lately is that they are using...less salt/seasoning in their food, which is probably due to their regular customers, but it is still very tasty. I've also noticed that they no longer make their own tortilla chips.More

This place has really good Mexican food. We go here all the time. The cheese enchiladas are the best, and the aguachilis. We even took our friends from Mexico and they were impressed.

Good food, good service and you get a view of the lake. The portions are more than enough. In fact, I took half of it home for another meal. The salsa was excellent but the chips could use some salt. Overall a great place to...eatMore

We ate here for dinner and enjoyed the fresh flavors of the food as well as the view out over the lake. The service was good. The tortilla chips were very tasty. This was the first time we had sopes which were quite the experience....The flat tostadas were also lovely.More
