Our Go-To Choice

For excellent Mexican food, our first choice is Tequila's. From the Carnita's, to the Golden Burrito, to the Burrito Colorado, it's all good. Plus, they'll mix up a margarita for you with the tequila of your choice for a reasonable price (depending on the tequila you pic of course)! The service... read more

Based on other reviews, we were expecting decent food but this place was nothing special. Chips were bland but salsa was pretty good. We ordered guacamole but never received it and they served the wrong main entrees. We left disappointed and vowed never to go back.

We just ate here for the second time tonight, and our experience can be summed up in one word....disappointing. It was a nice night and we were in the mood for Mexican, so we decided to enjoy the patio at Tequila's. We had been here once before for lunch. That first visit was ok, my chimichanga was lacking some flavor,... More

I'm visiting Denver on vacation and I have tried to zero in on an excellent Mexican restaurant, since it's my favorite cuisine. I've eaten at some top Mexican restaurants from downtown Chicago to Dallas, and this little family restaurant ranks quite high on my satisfaction meter. It is super busy, yet the service has been extraordinary and fast. They have... More

Being a California native, it is hard to find places to eat Mexican that I can tolerate. Colorado and California Mexican food is very different and this place has good Colorado Mexican food which I am learning to love, but first Oh the Margaritas. I am a margarita afficianado so prefer homemade sweet and sour or fresh lime juice and... More

My husband and I stopped here last night for dinner and left very disappointed. My husband and I both ordered burritos. I got the verde one and he got the super burrito. The pork in my burrito was extremely fatty and the burrito had so much sauce on it, it killed all the other flavors. Also, my rice was over... More

In fact, there's so much Mexican food in the Denver area, you can do better than this. My husband agrees. I started with a jalapeno margarita. I've had those at a few other places and usually they're amazing, but something about this margarita wasn't typical, and I left about a third of it (I usually NEVER leave margarita in the... More

Has a lot of different selections and the food is always good. Watch out for the Jalapeños, they are very spicy sometimes. Good food.

Good place, good food. I avoid Wed night due to the Mexican band (too loud for my ears). But otherwise a nice place.

Stopped in for a late lunch. Restaurant wasn't that busy, but we waited forever for our order to be taken. The food arrived hot, but unfortunately that's all it had going for it. I had the combo plate with a tamale and enchilada. Both were mushy and had no flavor. The rice looked and tasted like someone had dumped in... More
