We have eaten here many times over the years and always find the food to be good and the service to be excellent. The prices are modest compared to many Mexican food restaurants.

The food is really good! The salsa is not too hot, but has some spice to it. The food is great and the service is fast.

Have always had great food and drinks at this location. We starrted coming here when it first opened and occasionally get back, but it's difficult since we've moved from the area.

First, I'm from South Texas. Two, I know what good Mexican should taste like. And Three, this restaurant fits the definition. Nowadays a lot of "Authentic Mexican" is the flavor of Mexico (think Mole sauce ) which to me isn't true TexMex but I'm biased being from South Texas. I had a taste test going here and have been there... More

I forgot the name of the dish but it was steak, onions, mushrooms with rice and charro beans. It was all very good. Service was wonderful. Those guys were hopping. It was crowded on a Friday night but we only waited 5 min for a table. Good selection on the menu. There are a couple dishes I wish they had... More

Affordable food that was not bad. Very good service. Salsa was not good at all, but the local pallet likes it. Not as good as Texmex where I come from, but very sufficient. Atmosphere a little cliche and dated, but they make up for it by treating you right!

We were a party of six, and when we had to park a block away because the parking lot was jammed, we were expecting a long delay. The restaurant is huge though and we were promptly seated. A very extensive menu with most of the normal dishes. I am from Southern California so my expectations were high, but El Tequila... More

One of these places is right around the corner from me, so it is very convienient. When a place has real Mexicans working in it, I have always figured it must be good, and it isn't a chain. Plus, you see the clients are also Hispanic, that is a good sign. There are lunch specials, and there will be a... More
