The food was very mediocre and our perfect margaritas were anything but. Another curious event was our order was on the table before the ink got dry on the waiter's note pad. We may have expected more than we should have, but we will look someplace else next trip through that part of New Mexico and Southern Colorado.

The décor of this very large and successful restaurant is very authentic. Furniture was made in and brought from Mexico. The food is excellent. I had the carne asada with green chile sauce and it was the best ever. Their tortilla chips are outstanding too. The portions are all large and the prices make the food a bargain.

Didn't expect to find this gem on our road trip. Yummy food, quick service, friendly folks, nice atmosphere. Being from AZ, have been to many Mexican restaurants...this rates among the best.

There are lots of reviews on Tequila's, so let me add something different. No one admits they dine anywhere because of decor. But we do. Tequila's does not look like much, except large, from the outside. But inside it is very nicely done. Comfortable booths and Mexican chairs that do not have those terrible straight backs you sometimes see. Do... More

Excellent ambiance only further enhances the experience of dining Mexican while in Trinidad. The food is really outstanding, the waitstaff attentive while providing privacy. Dishes are served hot & fresh and the refills keep coming on the drinks. A great respite to a long day on the road that really quenched our appetite for something different.

Not a chain restaurant. Good bar. Festive atmosphere. Waitress was very friendly and attentive. Being from Texas the NM Mexican food seems tasteless. Nice chips and salsa. Just passing through going north.

We had been traveling with friends to an historic site just outside of Trinidad when we decided it was time for lunch. Our friends recommended Tequilas and said the food was very good. My husband had the burrito and said it was good. I had the grilled chicken salad with guacamole. It was fantastic. The chicken was very tender and... More
