The last 3 times I went there I had no food items cooked in my food everything from hair to plastic. I would not go there for anything more than a drink.

Great Salsa accompanying the chips, and some big plates of seafood and veggie dishes (can't remember exactly what we ordered). All of the dishes we ordered were very good, and we even took what we couldn't... More

Wonderful choices of well prepared Mexican food. My wife chose the enchilada suiza, and I selected the burrito from the sea. Both were excellent. Both were very large, so come hungry or ask for a to go box. Knowing a little Spanish helped, and the staff was comfortable with my trying to ensure what we wanted was what we got.... More

We ate at Tequila's tonight at the recommendation of our hotel clerk. We were not disappointed. Service was top rate. Free taco chips with salsa and cole slaw were put on the table and replenished. The margaritas were good. We split the shrimp and mushroom taco meal and it was more than enough food for two. It came with a... More
