A word from Teqa
Murray Hill embodies the spirit of New York City. A seemingly endless number of lifestyles and cultures live and work within its blocks. The area has a youthful energy that can be felt in the bars and restaurants that dot the neighborhood. But for everything Murray Hill has, until recently it lacked something. Teqa is the missing piece of the Murray Hill nightlife puzzle. A taquería and tequila bar that captures the electricity of the city, Teqa is built for the neighborhood it's proud to call home and serves modern latin cuisine that draws from influences around the globe, in an atmosphere featuring traditional and contemporary elements of Mexican style, with furnishings influenced by cultures that have shaped the 500-year-long history of tequila.Continued

  • "food and service were good as always. Didn't realize it was a price fix deal for Valentine's Day. I would have liked to have known that when I made the reservation."

  • "Our server was great even though we were very disappointed the restaurant had a prix fixe menu for Valentine's Day with few choices, They had the same menu a la carte. We got an appetizer to be fair to our server and were rewarded with a small 3 piece 2 bite each "empanadas??", arty but did nothing to relieve our tremendous hunger. After putting down $35.00 for 1 drink ( Margarita that my GF described as OK) and out absurd appetizer we went out and had a real comfort food meal of good proportion at Jackson Hole! Thanks, at least bringing up our "meal" at"TEQA" will always be an inside joke we can laugh about! Oh- and the choice of music was absurdly off putting and set the wrong mood for a romantic interlude!!"

  • "Everything was fine except the restaurant was very cold. My friend had to eat with her coat on. The host was very nice and when I got to the restaurant seated us in the warmest area away from the window. But even there it was chilly. The server was very nice. I'd love to go back when the weather warms up."

  • "I booked this reservation to get together with my tequila living friend for our yearly pre-Christmas dinner since she goes home to Maryland for the holidays. We love interesting cocktails and Teqa did not disappoint us. They had numerous unique margaritas on the menu so we tried several of them - all very tasty. The guacamole was fresh & delicious and the burger & short rib tacos were enjoyable, except that the burger was cooked a bit too rare. Our waitress was very nice & helped us make selections, but the busboy kept trying to take our plates before we were done & they obviously still had significant food on them. All in all,we really enjoyed Teqa & will probably go back, perhaps for brunch."

  • "Teqa is more focused on the bar scene than on it's menu. As the name implies, tequila is what it's all about. The food was, at best, Mexican-inspired, but wasn't anything remarkable. While the service was attentive and friendly, I wouldn't go back."

  • "We were 2 vegetarians and 1 not. Food got 5 stars from each of us. And margaritas were excellent."

  • "I took my parents here thinking it would be a great visiting spot. see trendy NYC and have good mexican food and it was the complete opposite. It was very loud and there were a ton of young people who had obivously had too much to drink for happy hour. If you are looking for a place after work with a group of people and apps this would be a good spot but not for a parents dinner."

  • "The restaurant is cool. Best part about was the decor, service, and drinks. Unlimited drinks with no time limit is heaven, especially when there is Rose Sangria! The food was just okay. My friend and I came in hungry, and left hungry. The portion sizes were so small!. Our waitress was great though. Not sure if I'd go back; one of those places you go once just to experience."

  • "My second time returning. My first visit was on a Saturday and it was fairly quiet, not spot of people. Second time was on a Sunday, place was packed, music was pumping with an awesome DJ, great vibe, everyone seemed happy to be there! Would recommend this place for anyone looking for a great brunch spot with unlimited mimosas, bloody Mary's, bloody Maria's, or Sangria"

  • "An outstanding addition to the Murray Hill neighborhood. A neighborhood I rarely frequent, to be honest. But Teqa offers great, fresh Mexican cuisine and fantastic Margarita's (free of Sour Mix or other mixers, just fresh Cyrus and lime). It's a little on the dim side for brunch, but the food is delicious, the service friendly and efficient, and the prices just right."

  • "A nice find tucked away from the hustling and bustling of a busy city core. Food and drinks were very good. Drinks are a bit expensive."
