    Amazing place for a date, everyday dining or even a special occasion. Best Mexican food in the entire city and it’s not even close.

    Hadn't been to Tequila's in a long time. Our server was fantastic. He must have heard my wife and I talking, he came over to the table with exactly what we wanted when we wanted it. My steak was really poor quality, but everything else was really good. We booked via OpenTable and listed the occasion as Birthday, but got no acknowledgement of that, which was disappointing. Overall, it was a good meal and good experience, just missed on a few small items.

    Stay away. Hard to say what was worse, the service or the food. Two of the three dishes at the table dry and somewhat tasteless- must be a fast food type assembly line operation. Server forgot to tell us there were specials, failed to bring a drink order, acted surprised when we complained about it after 20 or 25 minutes then tried to cover by saying it must be ready- but by then we were done and ready to leave. No apology. Also way too loud. Stay away.

    Excellent quality food and drinks. Hadn't been there in a while and the menu seems more limited but what we ordered was excellent. Place was packed and very loud, but a fun vibe. Service was a bit slow but nothing that bothered us too much.

True authentic Mexican food. Cool ambiance, great staff, and phenomenal food. Definitely will be coming back here. This place is a must try. A true 5/5 stars.

    Lively Mexican restaurant with a nice variety of choices. A few of us had the chicken mole which was a very generous size portion and very tasty. I particularly liked the salsa that came with the chips. It seemed to be bean-based rather than tomato-based, although I'm still not sure how I feel about the thick tortilla chips, compared tot he thin ones in most restaurants. The noise made it a bit difficult to ask questions of our waiter.

    We love Tequila’s. It never disappoints. The staff and owner make guests feel so at home. Roses margarita, margarita rojo, and other creative drinks showcase quality tequilas and mezcal. Best shrimp ceviche ever! Guacamole with bacon and chipotle, fish in mango-ginger sauce, and beef-filled poblanos tickle the tastebuds. We went two nights in a row because of seamless cordial service, lovely art, historic building, decor, lively vibe, and wonderful food.
