Diner Reviews
  • "We enjoyed our food - good but not notable. My jumbo Sangria was way watered down and no other wine was available. Probably would not return."

  • "Saw this place on evening as we were strolling down El. Camino killing time. A week later my wife and I were hungry and I went on Open Table to search out some place different. Remembering the name, I booked us a table. What an amazing experience! Our waitress, Jennifer, was attentive and had excellent recommendations for us. The soles as an appetizer was unbelievably good. I had the chili relleno stuffed with carnitas. I also indulged with three house margaritas. I was very impressed with their outstanding collection of fine tequilas. Make sure to ask to have yours made with agave nectar. We're coming here again...very soon."

  • "Tequilas is a family owned San Clemente gem. Fresh ingredients in the food, wonderful margaritas and they will specialize things for you; all you have to do is ask. I have tried all the other Mexican restaurants in San Clemente - this one is the best. If you don't see it on the menu ask and you can have it (usually) made for you. They even serve pasta, so something for everyone."
