    I selected Tequila Ranch for my recent birthday dinner based on past experience and it did not disappoint! We were a group of 14 and Amber, our server, was on top of everything. She was timely in taking our drink and dinner order. The service was amazing and her attention to our needs was awesome. The menu provided just the right variety to meet everyone's likes and dietary needs. The food was delicious and the portion size was quite generous. The only downside was the temperature of the restaurant. It was very warm. That AC needs to be cranked up in South Florida!

    First time at TR for dinner. Love good Mexican food. And being from So. California I think I know great Mex food. The menu is nice with just enough variety. Although, no burritos. The table side guac was so yummy! The carnitas cooked properly-crispy outside but still moist inside. The surf and turf was perfect!! They are under new management. Try it :) I will eat there again soon.

    Dined on 7/11/2014
    The restaurant was not what I expected. The food & drinks were definitely overpriced... I had a steak quesadilla & it was $15 for something that should've been $8-$10. I also has a mango martini for $16! The server made my party deel as if we were in a rush to eat. We quickly dined & went down to Wet Willy's & had much better drinks for far less $$$. I would only recommend this palce if you need a quick bite to eat for lunch & you just happen to be at the Hard Rock.

    My wife's bday is on July 4th and I understand they were busy that day. We had a party of 9 people and there was no special birthday dessert or treatment. We ordered a dessert and paid for it and mentioned that it was her birthday. We had to ask for a candle. Not good or special treatment. Food and drinks were ok.

    Hostess would not open a section for us. Drinks $16.00 each, no liquor! Really? Food fair! Ordered steak fajita with an up charge for chicken, thinking its a few $. Cost $29.00. Ridiculous for that place. It certainly was not high end. Should have eaten elsewhere. The manager was very argumentative about the bill. The sever was the only good thing about that place, nice polite boy.

    We sat outside on Friday night, May 16th. Randy was our server and he was truly outstanding. We go down to the Hardrock area for concerts all the time and will absolutely be back to Tequila Ranch because of Randy. Thank you so incredibly much for making my birthday dinner enjoyable! The only slight issue we had was that when I called the hostess to let them know we were going to be about 15 minutes late, they said they didn't have our reservation. I made the reservation through opentable and had a confirmation number. The hostess said they make confirmation calls the day before and if they don't hear from the guest, they erase the reservation. I never received a call and thus my reservation was erased. They took care of us anyway ;-)

    I am a Mexican food expert snob. I was surprised by what I expected to be a chain restaurant food menu which turned out to be excellent authentic Mexican. The guacamole that was made at the table was fantastic. We had the arracharras and the fajitas with shrimp. The steak was done as requested rare, and very tender and excellent. The shrimp fajitas were great.

    Came here with some out of town guests and was very surprised. The food was delicious! The ingredients were fresh and the menu had a wide variety of choices. I recommend the guacamole made table side, it was tasty and the chips were crispy and fresh. The margarita menu was extensive, the choices were unique but there were also some classics. For dessert we had the churros which I highly recommend. The wine bottle prices were excellent, I'll be returning to enjoy another bottle of Merlot with my food.

    Tried to get a quick bite before a show and prob should have just had the nachos from the snack bar. The sangria was overly sweet with the taste of wine that had turned. The apps that we ended up getting were barely edible. The pork tacos were nothing but fat and everything but the queso lacked salt. Overall not impressed and not going back.

    I ordered a Martini and the server acted like he didn't even know what that was. When the drink came, I had to send it back because it literally tasted like water. He brought me another one that wasn't much better. It was in a very small glass and they charged me $18.00!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Horrible. The food was just okay. We will not go back and would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. (Server was very sweet and attentive though).

    We were a party of four with a reservation. There was no wait when we arrived before we were seated. We started with drinks and the table side guacamole prep, which was excellent. Salsa and chips were also on the table. We had three different dishes at the table--two of us ordered the same thing. All of the dishes were excellent and the server was very efficient and pleasant. All in all, the meal and service were excellent. For me, I could have done without the men's room attendant. While a very pleasant fellow, I am fully capable of washing and drying my hands without assistance. The flip side, of course is that the attendant is gainfully employed.

    We visited Tequila Ranch before a show at Hard Rock. Since we went early, it was not crowded, but the whole place was very crowded after the concert, around 9:00. The food was good, especially the guacamole. It was a bit pricey for Mexican (Our party of 4 with two pitchers of margaritas and one appetizer paid $144.00 -- 18% tip is included), but it was very good and not as expensive as some of the other restaurants in Hard Rock. We wanted to linger at the table, especially since it wasn't very crowded, and the waitress was accepting of that.

    I had visited Tequila Ranch about a year ago but had forgotten how limited the menu is. We had to ask for a waiter after sitting for about 10-15 minutes. I ordered a frozen margarita that was more whipped than frozen; we had to pay $2.00 for salsa and chips. The food was okay. I will not be visiting the restaurant again in the near future.

    The food was below average in taste and quality. The service was average. The waitress offered us a pitcher of margaritas on special. We had 2. They were $60 a pitcher and it barely poured 4 glasses with ice. The chip basket was tiny and the salsa came in one of those condiment containers. The guacamole was flavorful and plentiful. I would not go back. There are plenty of local tex-mex restaurants that are by far better. I was disappointed.
