Tequila’s offers authentic Mexican cuisine in an upscale but fun environment. Start your night out with a cantina of Margaritas with the owner’s distilled tequila.

Bar has great drinks. Service very very good. The food is ok at best. The bacon wrapped shrimp I had was dried out and flavorless. Guacamole was bland. I won’t go back

Always a great meal at Tequilas Restaurant. Great food/service. Only drawback is that some of the tables are very close together (which can be uncomfortable or awkward), and the restaurant can be very noisy.

We had a table for four in the main dining area. Very nice and spacious! Service was outstanding and the food amazing. Not the traditional Tex-Mex which is what made this restaurant outstanding.
