I was just reading the review left by the customer that tried to use a Gift Certificate at this restaurant. I generally don't write reviews, but when I saw this diatribe, I felt I had to respond. I was seated in the booth right behind you and having to listen to your belligerence made not only my family feel uncomfortable, but everyone else who was within earshot of you. The manager or owner who dealt with you did so in a calm and even manner and you were most unreasonable. I for one am jubilant you won't ever be going back so my family doesn't have to listen to the trash and lies flowing from your mouth.
This restaurant is clean and has a very friendly staff. I think if someone wants to use these special Gift Certificates they need to read the terms before they make all the guests have to listen to their problems.
I have been going in there for over 20 years and have never seen a sight as to what this customer displayed in front of all the families that were trying to enjoy their meal.

I could not be more disappointed with this restaurant.
The service is lousy, the food is ok, but the owner is lucky he's still in business. I'm certain his manager is the only reason he still has any customers.
If you have a gift certificate to this place you might as well throw it away since they won't honor it anyway!
The owner refused to accept our gift certificate and said that he hates seeing them come through his door (last time I checked, a gift certificate had the same value as cash). The manager apologized but they will NEVER see my family again.
Do yourself a favor, go to a restaurant with better food and better service.

Tres Hombres reminds me of the type of quality that one might expect in a location such as Old Town San Diego. The chips and salsa are the best I have ever had and I always order a second bowl, which can be had in exchange for some spare change. The hosts and hostesses are very friendly and actually get to know the customers and truly care about providing a welcoming atmosphere.
The enchiladas are all very good, with my favorite being the seafood varieties. Everything at Tres Hombres tastes incredibly fresh, from the corn tortillas to the vegetables in the fajitas. I would also recommend the Coctel de Camarones which is refreshing and combines so many great flavors.
No trip to Tres would be complete without a Margarita and this restaurant has the most extensive list of Tequila and Margarita varieties that I have ever seen.
The bottom line is if you like attentive service and excellent, yet relatively inexpensive Mexican food then Tres Hombres is the spot.
i tried tres hombres for the first time this weekend
what a treat / friendly people large portions of good food
and my pomagranite margarita was awesome. my wife and i had the shrimp and crab enchilada my kids loved the flautas the line to get in was a little long but well worth the
15 minute wait we will be back
I went in with 3 of my friends and the first thing you notice is the jungle like atmosphere. We all had one of their house margaritas to start and couldn't stay away from them, along with the chips and salsa. If you like seafood the crab quesadilla is a great appetizer to start with. The shrimp and steak fajitas were absolutely amazing, great flavor and a hearty portion of food. My friends had the carne asada burrito, enchiladas Zacatecas and the mahi tacos and we couldn't have asked for a better time there. Our server told us he had been working there for 15+ years and he really showed us that there is a reason he's been there so long. We will definitely be back for more!

This place had the worst service I've ever experienced. We sat down and ordered 3 margaritas (overpriced and not very good). We tried to order desert but the manager said that didn't count as ""food"". We tried to order other things (tortilla soup-they were out, one taco-sides don't count as 'food' either -btw food is food as stated by utah law people). We ordered chips and cheese, they brought us nachos. We wanted to leave and the bill was wrong- charged for nachos (which we sent back since we didn't order them) and 4 drinks. We sent the bill back 3 times before they actually charged us for the right combination of food/drinks and every time they brought the check back with the wrong food on it the manager got more and more mad- Hello!! You can't get the bill right!! Bottom line-bad service, bad attitudes, overcharged us numerous times, and no one has any idea of Utah state law. Stay away.

They will hire anyone. This place was one of my favs but the service has gone downhill fast. When I have the guy waiter never a problem and its great. But I have not got him the past few times and I have even got up and left because of waiting for the girl to take my order.

I have been going to tres hombres for years and ordering the same Seafood Enchiladas (Zacatecas) that are amazing But recently upon the advice of their manager I have been trying several new dishes Including the Carnitas and my new favorite the Appetizer Coctel de Camarones(Shrimp Cocktail) My Great grandmother lives 1 block from the beach in Mazatlan and when this shrimp cocktail was served to me just the sight and smell took me back to Mazatlan! It was garnished with fresh Avocado slices on top and had ton of large fresh gulf shrimp. AWESOME!! Also try their chipotle salsa a littlte hotter than their reg but tasty!

The food was very bland. I came here with two friends and we all agreed that the food was lacking any real flavor. We were all seeking salt or something to jazz up the taste even a little bit.. even hot sauce didn't work to increase the flavor.
The serving staff was also lacking. They messed up my friend's order and ended up bringing out 4 plates of food for her. At least they over compensated, but they made themselves look inexperienced as a result.
I won't go back and wouldn't recommend this restaurant to anyone. My quest for good mexican in SLC continues...

I first went to Tres Hombres when I was a very young child, and have been going ever since! Like many others have said, it has a great atmosphere! Exquisite decor and ambiance! Others have also said how something was too hot, or too cheesy, or too this, or too that. What people don't realize is that not everyone is alike. What you need to do is specify what you want. Waiters are people too, not mind readers! Tell them you don't want a lot of salt on your chips, or you don't want as much cheese on your quesadilla. All you have to do is say a couple of extra words, and the pleasure is all yours! I absolutely adore this restaurant, and the people that work there. The owners work as hard as they can, and they are very involved with their own work. The hostesses are very hospitable, and the waiters are fun-loving. Tres Hombres has been around for about 25 years! As always, their chips and salsa are to die for! Don't forget the heavenly guacamole, awesome chile verde, and the others! Their margaritas and other bar selections are always heavily raved about. Tres Hombres is the right choice for you, if you know how to dine. It is a one-of-a-kind restaurant, and you can be confident in going there! Yes, there are pros and cons to everything, but you will see that these pros skyrocket over the cons! Saddle up your taste buds, kick back your heels, and get ready for an enjoyable meal!
P.S. Just for fun, if you speak Spanish don't be afraid to try some on the staff! Some may not speak Spanish, but the probabilities are they do. !Adios amigos!

This restaurant looks nice on the outside and inside, and the prices are high enough that you think you're going to get some really tasty Mexican food. Not so. I ordered a cheese enchilada and chile relleno. I didn't think you could do much to ruin this dish, but found out tonight that it is possible. They put about 1/2 pound of cheese on top of the dish, which is way too much for my taste. The chile relleno wasn't actually a chile relleno at all, but a few diced, canned green peppers wrapped in an egg omelet. It was so bad that I only took two bites and couldn't finish it. Keep in mind that I am not a picky eater. All I expected was a whole chile, breaded and fried; that is after all what a chile relleno is.
I would not recommend this restaurant to ANYONE! Terrible food, average service and prices that make you expect food that is actually good.

Generally decent food and staff try to be attentive. Excellent salsa and chips. Food just seemed better in the past. No restaurant is always consistent, and this one doesn't always make the grade. Perhaps they're banking on their popularity instead of quality.
