Best salsa but we love it because it is on the Pass where we are staying. So, after a long day driving The Highway of Legends we hit Tequila's for dinner and back to the hotel.

Waiter was a bit on the terse side, and food was warm, not hot, but overall, not bad. We went for lunch at about 10minutes after opening at 11AMMore

Great Mexican food, with a difference, served in a wonderfully festive atmosphere. The menu is designed around authentic dishes from central Mexico, and not your usual "Tex-Mex" fare. Excellent service, too!

The meal was filling but mediocre. The people were fabulous, super nice. I probably not return unless there is no other place to have a meal. I am from Mexico and expect Mexican food to be very tasty and it was fairly bland. Too Americanized...More

HaRay and I had the margaritas which were excellent. The Mexican pizza was my favorite. It was very tasty and great refried beans. Had the enchilada trio. It was good but too many sauces. Good service.

Yes there is outdoor seating, but you have to enter through the restaurant. You would have to ask the staff.
