Tico's Tacos

Best food in town


Tico's Tacos was originally opened in San Jose, Ca in 1957 by Luis Hevia. A few years later in 1980 Luis and his wife Claudia Hevia opened a Tico's Tacos in the heart of Salinas, Ca right on South Main Street where it still stands! Luis Hevia is no longer with us, but his Legacy still runs strong with Claudia taking the lead and their daughter close behind.
