Authentic Mexican food cooked to order.

The meals at this restaurant are always cooked fresh and tasty. The specials of the day usually feature a seafood dish and are always excellent. Chips and salsa are severed pre meal and consist of both corn and flour tortillas. The salsa has just the correct flavor and is not too hot. There is a... read more

The food was good, the service was excellent, and patio seating was so pleasant! The manager, Manny, was serving and such a nice guy. He is friendly and accommodating. I had the chicken quesadilla and it was very tasty and full of chicken! My ice tea was never empty. Kudos to the owners for running a very nice restaurant! We'll... More

Food is good... place is cute... But I like my Mexican food Hearty and Homespun... this was kind of arts fartsy for me... different herbs... very pretty presentation... But I'm kind of a Redneck when it comes to great Mexican Food... and they are surrounded by some tough Mexican food competition.

I have a friend who recently moved to Bonsall, and took me to this restaurant, it's amazing and we have been back many times. Nothing compares to the service. I simply asked about the type of chips that they served and they brought me a special plate of them! I work in customer service and my expectations are high. This... More

Manny has created something really special here is you like uniqueness and flavor. It's Mexican but not what you're used to. The Carnitas is great but their special Brochetta's and the best. If you like spicy, like forehead sweating spicy, you have to try the Molcajete Azteca is off the charts.

We had a great time, Manny the manager is a wonderful host. The special, Three Cheese Shrimp Quesadilla, is a remarkable explosion of flavors: a classic Vera Cruz style shrimp with garlic, onion, spinach, cheeses, guacamole. This place is a go-to gem of a place, tucked away in a shopping center just off Rt. 76. Others had an applewood wrapped... More

We live close by, and after several visits can say that the food and drinks at Tekila are consistently good, the atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, and the staff is attentive and down to earth. We can bring our dog with us and eat on the patio out back, and they will even bring him a bowl of water. Heaters... More

First time I had just stopped in for a yummy margarita and had some of their incredible tortilla chips. The last time we went was on our way to the beach. I got a chicken tostada with rice and beans. My friend got the HUGE carne asada plate. The kids got chicken nuggets and chicken taquitos. The chicken nuggets had... More

We stopped by this Mexican eatery for lunch, choosing to sit outdoors in the perfect Bonsall weather although the interior is very inviting; clean, quiet, interesting and roomy with generous windows providing natural light. The back patio is good too. Friendly, smiling, knowledgeable wait staff provide a great reception and when we were ready to order, recommendations to try a... More

You will like the excellent friendly service, the outdoor seating (I prefer the back patio), the casual atmosphere as well as the food. Pricing is reasonable but not cheap. The top shelf margarita was good enough to order again, but I have had better. Food was plentiful and of good if not exceptional quality. This will be a great place... More
