About Us


Our business specializes in two different cuisines, Mexican and Italian. That is why we consider ourselves MexItaly – the only like establishment in this part of the North Country. We have been in business as Tico’s Mex Mex Grill for over 8 years and in September of last year, we took up the challenge of this new menu. With a few minor glitches at the beginning, we overcame them and continue to enjoy cooking for our customers. We have been told many times by our customers how they feel “right at home” and I guess that is a specialty too – To make you feel welcomed and at home. Enjoying a fresh, homemade-style meal is a plus! You can find us under Primos de Tico’s on Facebook. You’ll be able to see many reviews and pictures of our dishes.

Thank you for taking the time to know a little bit about us. We love what we do and hope you will love us too!


We were established on September 19, 2008 as Tico’s Mex Mex Grill at The Square in Watertown, NY. While my husband was deployed, my mother-in-law and I decided to risk our retirement and embark on this adventure. We found ourselves doing what we love, cooking! When my husband retired in 2009, he was quick to catch on, and we have worked side-by-side ever since. When we moved to our new location in September, 2016, we acquired an Italian menu. We had a few minor glitches at first, but managed to work them out.

In 2020 we opened our second location, Tico’s Mex Mex Grill in Chaumont, NY.
We all have dreams and we have made ours come true – thanks to you, our customers!
