I make it a point to visit this restaurant when I'm in town. George W. Bush ate here, and I once met John McCain who was on the way out after eating here.

The food was fair- the service OK. this used to be a really good mexican restaurant. Now- the salsa is too hot, the fajitas were tough and overcooked, and the chili relleno had no egg on the outside---it was a chili with cheese inside. Its fair- and its expensive- we spent 35$ for 2 soft drinks, fajitas and a chili... More

This was our second visit to the Tee Pee. If we lived in Phoenix it would be a go - to place for us. Loved the food. The atmosphere seems like a "everyone knows your name" kind of place. Without a doubt the next time we visit our daughter in Phoenix we will head to the Tee Pee!

This is a recurring favorite spot for excellent Mexican food, but have previously only been here for lunch. Had the opportunity to try dinner and was not disappointed. Menu is slightly different with the lunch specials not available. But you are still brought yummy chips to start. Salsa is good but a 'hotter' version is available upon request. Margaritas are...

I would give the Tee-Pee a 10 if I could. Absolutely great food, big helpings, good prices and superior service. Not an attractive building, but great atmosphere inside. From their wall collection, you can see that it is very popular with celebrities.

My friend was raving about this place, decided to check it out with him and I would rather go to chipotle then eat here. Service was horrible, server kept forgetting our order or to busy talking away with other servers or guest. Finished one beverage and was going to order another, but it took our server for ever to reach... More

The Tee Pee is seriously old school -- you can tell the people hanging at the bar have probably been hanging there daily for years, decades even. Cafeteria-style plateware. Great salsa and the original chile relleno is truly a marvel -- more like a souffle, so don't be surprised if you are expecting the traditional-style relleno. Good prices, good family-owned... More

Looking for an authentic Mexican restaurant, look no further. The Tee Pee offers a good selection of beers, drinks, and great Mexican food. Chimichuuies,chili rellenos, and enchiladas all fresh and yummy. Tiny restaurant so get there earlier, no reservations Enjoy!
