I went to this Mexican restaurant expecting authentic Mexican food with bold flavors. Instead I received bland food. My tamale was cold. My burrito consisted of unseasoned ground beef wrapped in a flour shell with enchilada sauce poured over it! The enchilada was a small version of the burrito. I definitely do not recommend this place if you want good... More

We traveled through the area last weekend. Looking for something fast, yet palatable for a family of four, we fell upon Don Tequila. It was 8:30ish, and we were tired and hungry. This is not a fancy restaurant, but the food was very good and the prices very reasonable. Our waitress was great and the staff were friendly. We looked... More

Love love love Don T's. Food is great, service is fabulous and drinks are awesome. Very friendly staff, never had a bad meal there (we visit at least once a week sometimes more and have for past couple of years).

There is no question that Don Tequila is one notch above other Mexican Restaurants in the area. Definetely better than most, if not all, in Lorain County. The Durango Burrito is huge and awesome.

As Lorain County Mexican goes, this is the best. The menu has a good variety, I love the tamales. This is traditional Mexican-American fare. The place is very clean and the staff is friendly. It is always busy, but never to crowded.

The wife is the Mexican food eater more then my daughter or I. Restaurant seems clean and seating was fast, for dinner time. Service was absolutely abysmal. We sat for no less then 10 minutes before a basket of nachos and a carafe of salsa was thrown on the table by a passing server. 5 more min passed till a... More

Decent, middle of the road, mid western Mexican , and if you are heading there to expect typical,toned down food with not much fresh zing and ingredients. That being said,the dining room is pretty, in a fake authentic rustic Mexican theme. Service is languid, but cordial. And again, the food is just fine, if that's your cup of Mexican tea.

We have eaten at Don Tequila's Mexican Bar and Grille, but I have never had their fajitas before. I was missing a lot, to say the least! The meal consisted of a large hot plate of mixed grilled chicken, green peppers, onions and tomatoes in a light zesty sauce, accompanied by another plate with guacamole, salad, rice and refried beans....

They have good salsa but that's all we had I liked. This place moved used to be a block north in a dumpy old formerTaco Bell. The food has not improved since moving. If you want better service and atmosphere go to Quesadillas in Amherst. Another better choice would be Fiesta Jalapenos in North Ridgeville. Amazing service there.
