Prices are very reasonable, large menu and fast service. Family owned and operated. This restaurant is a first class dining experience and should be must destination.

We came for dinner because we were in the mood for Mexican Food. The service was not good and the food wasn't either. My husband ordered fish tacos and there was very little fish and rather plain tasting. I order chicken tacos and the chicken tasted like canned meat and was not very flavorful. We also had refried beans which... More

We come here when the Chipotle line is too long across the street because the service is quick. Average food and drinks. I usually get the Carne Asada Burrito with queso and it is good, nothing special. My wife likes their chile rellenos and enchiladas.

I live in area and took family out for dinner. Waiter took order and food came quickly. Brought my son's rice/beans but never returned with rest of meal. Kept walking by but never gave eye contact.

Food was mush out of a microwave. Service was robotic. Had to argue with cashier for a receipt. Flies on my food. My kids like Taco Bell better and so do I. Chef Girdon Ramsey needs to visit this place. Owners should be ashamed.

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

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.
