Amazing food, service,artwork – Maria along with her staff are very nice people, quick service that makes you feel like u are welcome. No one is ever rushing you out the door so they can make more money. you can tell they love their jobs. Not only does todo have great fast service, its clean, they can accommodate a lot of people if u have a large family and are always looking for ways to better serve you. The food is some of the best i have ever had. From their Fantastic Mexican food to their yummy Italian even their Americana food is great. meatballs are to die for. reading some of the more negative reviews i can only assume that the people writing them were having a bad day and took it out on poor maria. I cant imagine that the owner is trying to make anyone wait long on purpose or steal money from them. I recommend if you have never been to todo un poco that you make up your mind for yourself, i have a sneaking suspicion you will never want to leave.
Shady Owner – My husband and I used to love this restaurant but our two most recent encounters have proven the the owner to be very shady. A few months ago, we were overcharged. We noticed, the owner (our server) only wrote the menu items on the ticket, but not the prices. Then, a total plus the tax was written on the bottom. When we added it up, sure enough, the total was a few dollars over what it should've been. When we brought it to her attention, she wasn't surprised at all and changed it for us. We wrote it off as a mistake and went back tonight. This time, we had to wait a few minutes for a table. They sat another couple that walked in after us before us because the open table couldn't accomodate our toddler. After about 10-15 minutes of waiting, another couple with a baby came in. We were both sat at the same time next to each other. We promptly placed our "buy one get one coupon" on our table so the server could pick it up when she took our order. After about 15 minutes, we had still not been greeted. The couple that was sat at the same time as us (but who arrived after us) had their order taken after about five minutes. Finally, I asked the owner if we were going to be helped. She claimed that she was just about to and hadn't before because she didn't know if we were ready (well, she never asked....) At this point, I believed, she realized she messed up because she did attempt to make sure she brought out my salad and some more chips right away. At the end of the meal, we were delivered the bill, which once again was handwritten and did not reflect the prices of the meals but it was totaled at the bottom. As she handed it to us she claimed that she thought she made a mistake, took it away, and promptly brought it back with nothing changed. We totaled it up, and once again, it was about $2.00 off (trust me, I'm not hurting for money, but that $2 extra can go in my son's piggy bank, AND it's the principle of the thing especially since this had happened before). When we informed her we thought that our bill was incorrect, once again, she didn't seem surprised. She took the bill, then brought it back to us claiming that although our coupon was a $10.00 value, she only took off $8.95 because that is all they take off when a pizza is ordered as an entree. I informed her that our coupon had been sitting on the table the ENTIRE visit and we should've been informed of this when we ordered. She argued that she had taken good care of us. When she said this, I informed her that the couple that arrived after us was done eating and were paying by the time we ate our meal, she said that this was because my husband had ordered a thick crust pizza. I argued that it was because we weren't waited on until 15 minutes after the other couple. We also should have been informed that the pizza would take extra time to cook and I guarantee you my husband would have opted against it, as we were STARVING. I also explained to her that this was the second time in a row that we had had issues with our bill.Because of all of these things, you would think that the $2 would be a small price for her to pay to keep paying customers and anyone else the may share their experience with. Anyway, long story short, SHE REFUSED to take off the $2.00. (I mean seriously, you are willing to lose good customers over $2.00?? Like I said, it's not that I can't afford it, I just assumed that as a good business woman she would take care of her customers after a bad experience). Anyway, I said that she could take it out of her tip then. I left only the exact total ( I NEVER DO THIS, as I waited tables for years while going through college and I KNOW how it is!). Anyway, we informed her, we would never be back although we had truly enjoyed dining at the restaurant in the past. I also informed her that we would inform others of our poor experience, so....here ya go. If you end up going anyway..CHECK TO MAKE SURE YOUR BILL IS CORRECT!!
Quit trying to hurt your customers – We have eaten here since they opened. Couldn't figure out why I had uneasy feeling after eating at this restaurant, until I read this on a database.

You would think that they could figure out after a course of a couple of years how to handle food properly. It's too bad, because I love this food, and the owners are so nice. However they have to address this problem.
Hole In the Wall – Hard to find, but excellent food. I have been several times and had many dishes. My favorite is the Chicken Mole Enchilladas, absolutely delicious. Anyway, check it out, it is very private setting and not to many people have caught on. You will not be disappointed.
A refreshing change from those restaurant chains. Delicious food and great service. – The food was extremely flavorable with lots of options. They are great at accomodating large groups and you feel like you are enjoying a home cooked meal not something from a a boring restaurant chain. I would much rather give these hard working folks my money than some restaurant chain. Delicious food!
My FAVORITE Restaurant in Elk Grove – I live in Elk Grove and this is my favorite place to eat. My husband and I go approximately once per month for dinner. I have never had to wait for a table, which tells me that people havent really found about this Elk Grove gem. The owners are hands on, waiting tables, etc. The food is very flavorful, unlike most chain restaurants that have everything delivered frozen. LOve this place.
Unique Experience in a Town of Chains – EG needs more like this. Enough with Fridays and Chilis and the other chains. This is a real neighborhood style joint. I live nearby and have enjoyed many meals at TUP. I have to second the comment on the Pesto pizza. Amazing. TUP is decorated from floor to ceiling with unique artwork adding to the pleasant atmosphere. Give these local small businesses your money and they will make it worth your while.
Best pizza I've ever had in my life. SWEAR. – I work at a call center near the restaurant, and have been in twice. I had the pesto pizza with chicken instead of steak, and it was the best pizza I've ever had. I'm not joking. The owner came out and talked to me and my friend, so it was rather intimate-feeling. Plus, the inside of the restaurant is SWANKY as hell. I reccommend it to anyone, especially the pizza. It's absolutely adorable!
Outstanding Food! – My wife and I dined at Todo un Poco last month. I had the salmon tacos, and she had the vegetarian burrito. Both entrees were so large it was possible to take half the order home - though I didn't because it was so good. Highly recommended for the awesome food!
