WONDERFUL

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 eaten at Tequila's restaurants in Golden, Lakewood, Northglenn, Glenwood Springs, Grand Junction and Trinidad. I have never been 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

The food was great, reasonably priced, and the serviçe was great. Although they only have one type of salsa, when we asked if they had anything hotter, the server made a more spicey version for us. He also added some roasted jalapeños to my wife's plate. The restaurant is also very easy to find as it is on the I-25... More

This is a definite "must try" if you are in southern Colorado. The Carne Asada plate was HUGE, but the flavor was even bigger. I asked the waiter if they had hotter hot sauce, and even though they didn't, he added some chipotle to some of their hot sauce just for us. He also added some roasted jalapenos to my... More

They had more than the typical Mexican fare. And it was very tasty. My husband said the pork was some of the best he's ever had. I tried the Mexican stir-fry and thought it was a great alternative to more typical Mexican fare.

We were on our way home from an amazing trip to Texas and we found this restaurant on this site. Everyone in my family thought the food was absolutely delicious. I ordered the fajitas texanas. OMG - the flavor of the meat was perfect! Sizzling onions and peppers, beans, rice sour cream and guacamole made it perfect - and don't... More
