At the end of our Northern Ca. visit we stayed at La Quinta Hotel, Millbrae and needed a restaurant within walking distance. Mi Tequila restaurant was THE best Mexican restaurant we have ever dined at. It is family owned. We were greeted warmly and immediately served their homemade chips and salsa. The quesadillas served were spicy and amazing. We sampled... More

The restaurant was slow (not a lot of customers) so I had good service. They were attentive and prompt. I had the appetizer quesadilla with chicken and it was a large serving. It was a little runny due to the chicken marinating sauce but was still good. The chips tasted a little stale but the salsa was good. Not spicy... More

Not the fastest service but always tasty and served hot. Portions adequate and not typical Mexican food. A family operated business if you enjoy spending time and money at a local business.

They have been in business for 30 years. The place doesn't look that old. Nice family style restaurant. Owned by a young at heart couple. After a few days, I started calling the wife, Mom and her son Carlos, Carlos. They were that friendly. Mama remembered my dietary allergies and I only needed to order the dish. I didn't have...

Has replaced Celia's for our new local favorite Mexican restaurant - food is much better quality! Prices may be slightly higher but still reasonable and worth it. Quiet atmosphere, drinks very good as well. I liked the Chile Verde and their Verde enchiladas - I love their rice and they give you a small salad with meals as well. Pina... More

Great frozen margaritas and Mexican beers. Sort of "El Torrito" style Mexican food. I always order sliced avocado added to my entrees and they are very generous with it. Most entrees come with a side salad served beforehand. The flan here is fantastic!

While staying overnight in Millbrae, CA for a flight out of SFO to Europe the next day, my wife and I were craving some good Mexican food since we wouldn’t have any for the next three weeks. After reading several reviews about Mi Tequila we agreed to give them a try and we definitely were not disappointed. The restaurant is... More

We have been coming to Mi Tequila with friends every Friday for over 8 years. Always wonderful service & delicious food. We love their margaritas, no where in the U.S. compares, and we have tried many others. The food is always delicious. Some of our favorites are: Mexican jumbalaya, fajitas, chili verde, carne asada, steak parilla with grilled onions, carnitas,... More

I had their Chile Verde, two nights in a row! The margaritas were a little weak, but otherwise, I really enjoyed the food and service.

Nothing special to look at, but we like this little neighborhood place with good food (love the machaca!) and a simple homey, relaxed feel.
