Food is good, little noisey when lots of people there. The staff and owner are nice and personable. Clean place to go for lunch or dinner.

Tia Babes just has not made the jump (or effort) to step it up to good or excellent. So many Mexican restaurants in Santa Paula to choose from; most are better

Nice, comfortable space with fairly attentive service (though the asked-for Ranch dressing was never brought). The food varies from bland (cheese enchiladas) to a bit over-the-top pepper spice (the salsa served initially with our chips).

You need to eat there corn burritos with secret sause. You'll come back again and again. I've done this for 20 years.
