After moving to Colorado a month ago from Texas, I was starting to wonder if we would ever find decent Mexican food here. Finally, it was found at Tequila's. Their food actually tasted authentic, and the service was great. I will definitely be visiting here reguarly, even if it is well over an hour from my home.

I ate here with my family on a recent trip through southern Colorado. The food and service were both good. I was not blown away with the food but it was good. There are pretty limited choices for food in Trinidad and this was the best food we had there.

Kind of hesitated to eat there because it looks like a chain operation and we like smaller more authentic food restaurants. Sucked it up and headed to Tequila's for dinner and were pleasantly surprised. Loved the salsa and chips and dinner was very good. We will go back. Service good too.

This is a great family Mexican restaurant. Each time we pass through Trinidad we stay over so we can enjoy their food. This time we tried dessert. The fried ice cream was good and the clan excellent...all home made. Be sure to get a meal here if you want Mexican. You won't be disappointed.

I have been going to Tequila's for 10+ years with mixed results. But in recent years they have had consistently good food, good services and good margaritas. I take visiting friends and relatives there often.

I stopped in after passing it several times on my way to Pueblo. It was good Mexican food and the margaritas were delicious! I would go back again! The staff was very friendly.

We are in this area every couple of months enroute to our ranch in southern Colorado. We have been dining here since it opened and their consistency and quality has never waivered. We make it a MUST on our itinerary to meet friends and family here. The Carne Asada is the best we've had anywhere! The service is excellent from... More

stopped in here on a whim one time on my way to col. sprgs. I was surprised by the great service from the wait staff [ who I could barley understand due to his Mexican accent, but got to like him a lot ] and the food was great. fish tacos and dos xxx beer in a chilled mug. umm... More
