Tequilas had high YELP ratings, so gave it a try over another favorite in the area. Service was frazzled (our party of 4 was served our entrees at different times), margaritas solid, food okay and atmosphere busy and noisy. TIP: The bar area had a sports bar theme and was more inviting than the main dining area.

3 of us out for a quick Mexican meal....very clean. courteous staff. lots of TV monitors for watching the game. Food was very nice. Had Acapulco fajitas with really nice carne asada. Bar had very extensive selection of tequilla and my wife loved the margarita. We will definitely go back

My family has been going here for years! I try other restaurants and like a few others, but none are ever as good as this Tequilas location. First off, they have the best Molé Sauce around. I like to get the Enchiladas Molé with shredded beef instead of chicken and I always get extra Molé Sauce. But honestly, everything I've... More

Great food with outstanding service. My wife and I eat here often and we have never had a bad experience. When you order if you like your food with a spicy kick ask for the spicy version. This store has the best management of the Tequilas family of restaurants. Always feel welcome and the drinks are alway consistent. Enjoy!

Went here based on seeing good reviews. What a disappointment. My food was flavorless. Actually this was the worst Mexican food I've ever had. I ordered the bean burrito with enchilada sauce. It was totally bland and lacked any seasoning.

Mexican lunch above local fast food Mexican. We went there with another couple for a late lunch. First stop was the restrooms, which the doors would not lock and one of the two sinks wasn’t draining. Other that these two items, it was clean. We had the #2 Soft Chile Relleno & 1 tortilla and the Tostada Deluxe. The other... 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
