The food is overrated. We have eaten here twice and both times we were disappointed with the food. Only the guacamole and the cocktails were good. Do not plan to return.

Had reserved a high top bar table, but they did not hold one for us. Our table a little cramped as they are trying to maximize capacity. Only one real option for a vegan, would be nice if they would add a couple options for animal lovers. I would try it again on quiet weeknight where I could sit in the bar area.

Fun pre-Halloween dinner! All waitstaff was dressed in costume and some were coming around with candy treats and dry ice to make your water bubble and steam! Awesome margaritas and delicious food! Definitely recommend.

Outdoor patio area has closed so inside is the only option. It is a popular place so crowded. Noise level high but tolerable. Food is small bites good to share. Busy bar with exotic drinks. Overall a nice evening out.

Passion fruit margarita was terrible - tasted like airplane orange juice. Everything else was fine (fajitas, guacamole, salad) but overpriced. Don’t understand the hype - this place was packed. Save yourself money and go next door to one of the more casual places.

We were sitting outside and a couple were seated at the table right next to ours, actually in back, they were allowed to bring a very large white very long hair beautiful dog in and put it within inches from us, now I am a dog lover however… the tables were close, The staff person doing the seating never asked if anyone at our table had animal allergies or if we would mind if this dogs whose tail was wagging and hitting and our friends the entire meal.

well that is what happened the entire meal the dog stood between the two guest and wagged his tail and hit our dinner companions on their arms. Our dinner companions are not dog people. Now we did not want to say anything as to put a damper on our evening but they should have at least ask or not allow dogs of that size to come in even the outside seating which was very close and not that open.

We ordered our granddaughters lunch with our drinks but it never arrived. It took over an hour to get our meal and we were the second table seated outside. Other tables arrived after us and finished their meals before we got ours. Their only explanation was that they had a large party inside but that didn’t effect any of the other tables outside.

Tequila Escape is an overpriced Mexican Food restaurant. We had a party of 8. It is a very small restaurant and it was packed. They squeezed us in a booth and we were very uncomfortable. It was Saturday night so it was very busy. The noise level was so high and it was hard to hold a conversation. Our reservation was at 7:15 pm and we were served dinner at 9:00pm. The only reason we did not starve was because we ordered a very small and expensive guacamole for an appetizer. The food was decent. I love Mexican food and I have had better for half the price. The drinks were excellent, kudos to the bartenders. Our waitress was very sweet. Overall, this is a good place for a quick bite and a cocktail. If you are on a date night or were hoping to have a conversation with your party, then this is not the place for you.

The service was good especially our server. However, our server failed to explain the add on charges for the fajitas ordered which made the price for fajitas very “unfriendly”! Sadly when I questioned the bill to better understand our very sweet server disappeared. On a more positive note, we will happily go back because the dining experience was good and the mixologist was superb!

We were so disappointed with the service. This was more of an issue with how this was being managed than the server, we suspect but every single thing took forever. The worst part was the glass of wine my mother ordered when she got her food arrived with the check. We got a margarita, lemonade, nachos and they all took forever. Mistakes on the bill too.

Service started off slow, but then the whole staff picked it up and made the remainder of the evening excellent. Food was terrific! Loved the ambiance, though a bit noisy. Will definitely go back!
