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.

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.

I've had better service at a self service restaurant. Very disappointed in the level of hospitality that we received. The food was just OK and I will not be going back for a next visit.

I have never been dissapointed with this restaurant. Staff is friendly and food is always good. Cheap prices! I ordered the lunch special #20. The shreaded pork had an excellant taste. The salsa is one of the best in the area.
