We had an excellent dinner. Food was delicious, we loved the guacamole bar, enjoyed both white and red sangria. Our server was amazing, when one of my friends asked where the bathroom was, he took her by the arm and personally escorted her there.
Can’t wait to go back!!

The wait staff is attentive, knowledgeable and fun. They suggested wine choices which paired well with our food. We had the specials of the night - langostinos and a short rib with scallops Delicious. Can’t wait to go back

Every visit to Tequila's is a treat! The food is always so fresh and delicious. The servers are exceptionally warm. And the the excitement of fellow patrons makes it feel like you are part of something special. It feels like a celebration even if it isn't. One of our all time favorite restaurants in Philly!!

A MUST! Everything we had here is so, so good! Try the Enchiladas Playa or the Chiles Rellenos - you won't be disappointed. I asked if they had Mexican coffee, and they brewed it special for me which was a real treat. Our waiter was so kind and sweet, the restaurant is truly family owned and cared for. The food is outstanding, flavor city!

We went to Tequlia's for lunch during restaurant week. The food was excellent. Great flavor & authentic Mexican recipes. Service was outstanding. Seating is a little tight and the noise level when it is crowded can be a bit load but i would deal with that any day to have this great of a meal!

Restaurant week was an excellent value. The food was phenomenal and the Restaurant week price can't be beat.

The place was pretty packed for a thursday and the service was slow and it was pretty loud, but it wasn't unexpected.

I’ve been coming to Tequila’s for nearly 25 years, and I’m amazed at how they keep their menu fresh and creative, while maintaining quality, ambience, and service standards. It was busy for restaurant week, but the service was impeccable. Both menus were offered and we opted for the regular menu. We shared the tuna ceviche, queso fundido, and the barramundi. All were excellent!

Went during restaurant week with 2 other guests. We tried all 3 appetizers (ceviche, sopa, empanadas)... all delicious. Our entrees were all excellent, beautifully presented, and ample sized portions. We had the 'surf and turf', grouper, and seafood enchiladas. We also tried all 3 desserts. The service was very attentive, despite it being a busy Sunday night during restaurant week. We will definitely return.

Such a pleasant surprise. Went for restaurant week. Don't know that I would have ever experienced this beautiful, truly ethnic, delicious restaurant without it. Tortilla soup fantastic, with added avocado in it. Yum! Excellent grouper fish cooked in garlic and tequila.. Amazing tres leches dessert. And best of all, the classiest, most attractive waiters in the city. This place rocks!

Went to Tequilas during winter restaurant week for girls night out dinner. Drinks and desserts were good. Didn't really think I got the value for the money with the small plate and entree. 2 of the 4 entrees did not come as described: no banana leaf on the pork and medium well filet came out very pink inside.

We were told that the entire party had to be at the restaurant before we could be seated. While we were waiting to be seated two people came in to join parties that had been seated. Service was very slow. The food was good but after we finished our apps it was a 30 minute wait until the entrees arrived. One member of our party had to leave before dessert arrived 40 min after our entrees were completed. My iced tea was never refilled. It took over two hours to eat our lunch due to the service. It was Restaurant Week in Philly but that is not a valid excuse.
