Diner Reviews
  • "Although the red salsa (free) and queso dip (not free) were world class, being from Minnesota I was hoping for a better overall Mexican food experience during my trip to Arizona. As others have commented, this is a noisy place. Our table was about as far from the bar as it could be, which was good. There isn't much separation between the bar and the dining area, and the acoustics seem to amplify the noisy bar patrons. The biggest disappointment was the margaritas. For a place that specializes in tequila (TQLA- get it?), the house margarita was below average as house margaritas go. Granted should have upgraded to a better tequila, but...below avg. Consensus at our table was that the food was good not great."

  • "Way too noisy, had to yell to be heard by dining companions. Waited even though we'd made dinner reservations. Entrees did not arrive together, were several minutes apart."

  • "When we got there they did not have our reservation in the computer.. Reservations was made on line and I printed it with the confirmation #.. It still worked out they found a table for our group.. It was a little loud.. had trouble hearing and giving our order to the waitress. she couldnt hear that we wanted apetizers. but over all we had a good time and food was good."

  • "Enjoyed our first visit to this restaurant, although it was a 30 minute drive from Scottsdale. It was worth the drive. The food was excellent, but it was a little noisy, as we were seated in the bar area. The waiter was very attentive. My wife had the pumpkin seed crusted salmon and I had habanero chicken. Quality of both were excellent and more than we could eat. I'm sure we'll be going back again soon."

  • "They have great Happy Hour prices. The service was a bit slow but it was busy since it was a Friday night. I was here once before on a Wednesday and the service was outstanding. I have yet to try items from the dinner menu, I am making my way through the appetizers. Calamari is great. Wine prices very reasonable. At how many places can 2 people have 5 drinks and 3 appetizers for $39?"

  • "We took out of town relatives here after we had done a mani-pedi party for my daughter's wedding. The food is always good here and different than any other southwestern restaurant in the East Valley. It was hard for the out of town relatives to fine since the name of the restaurant is on the front of the building and not the sides. We had fifteen people and they had a large high top for us to sit at."

  • "We enjoyed our dinner at TQLA very much. The food was wonderful and the service was terrific. However, I would recommend asking for a table away from the bar as the noise level during Happy Hour (3 p.m.- 6:30 p.m.) was quite loud. This restaurant does have a very vibrant bar scene!"

I would recomend this place, we love it."

  • "We went for lunch without of town guests. The food was very good. The service was great too. The price was right for lunch. Music was a little too loud however not distracting. I would highly recommend this place for casual dining."

  • "had high hopes based on reviews so I made reservations for 9 people on a Friday night. Given that it was Friday, I knew it would be busy but this place was packed and VERY loud. The table was only set for 8 and when we asked for another chair, the receptionist was annoyed. We were seated a huge table by the bar that was nearly 5-feet across. We could barely talk and had to yell to talk to the person sitting next to you. There wasn't anything special about the food - not good enough to go back for. This is a good spot to grab a drink with friends or co-workers after a long week of work. I would not recommend having dinner with the family here. Our server was very friendly and accommodating though, we were satisfied with the his service."

  • "My boyfriend's family and I always go out to eat on Friday nights. This last Friday we went to TQLA. It was fun but it was really dark and loud. We made a reservation for 13 people and when I arrived first the table was only set up for 10. As soon as everyone arrived they fixed the chair situation and they were very nice and patient with us until our entire party arrived. The food was great and I LOVED the pitcher of margaritas."

  • "The food was delicious, the service was great and friendly. The only negative was it was so energetic that at times you could not hear the person across the table."

  • "We finally got a chance to try TQLA and were not disappointed. The service and food was excellent. I tried the fajita (chicken & shrimp combo) and was very happy with my choice. We also tried the "Skinny Margarita".... usually they are not anywhere near as good as a standard margarita.... this one was very good."

  • "Interesting selections on their weekend brunch menu. Most menu items have a SW touch. There's even something for those wanting a healthy diet-conscious choice. Our waiter was friendly and efficient. The decor is casual with dark woods and desert colors."

  • "We thought we'd try something different - TQLA was something of a disappointment. The food was just OK and excessively spicy. Even the "Ultimate Margarita" was not very good - either they didn't really use the good Tequila as listed or the mix was lousy - quite a surprise for a place called TQLA. The staff was amiable but clearly young and inexperienced - perhaps this was their winter job when the California surfing beaches are closed? Honestly, the best thing about the experience was the band playing there on Saturday night."

  • "Having tried numerous restaurants serving Mexican foods, this undoubtly been the best. The service was exceptional and the food serve quickly, hot and very tasty. The prices are reasonable and the ambiance. Would definately recommend this restaurant to others and will treat ourselves again to a fine dinner."

  • "Great drinks, pretty good food, portions and prices, but certainly not on my "OMG, I want to go back again TONIGHT!" list. Jason was an excellent server on the patio and made up for a few service and order glitches. Definitely worthwhile during 1/2-off appetizer Happy Hour so stop in and decide for yourself."
