Pretty good for a small town

I stopped here for a late dinner on the way home to Denver. Access is easy from I-25. I had the Tequila Special Salad with chicken, which was nicely spiced.

Tequila's has a wonderful Mexican ambiance. Wait staff is very attentive and food arrived very quickly after ordering. Being from New Mexico we found the food very flavorful but not as spicy as we normally enjoy with both red and green chile in NM. Excellent Mexican food including seafood; great ambiance; wonderful staff. Easy on/off of I 25 on the... More

I had the fish tacos. Not what I expected, but I enjoyed them. It was fish in a cream sauce, no cabbage etc. beans and rice had a nice smokey flavor. My companion had the tortilla soup.

We like to try non-chain restaurants recommended by Trip Advisor. We need to eat a Sunday lunch in Trinidad and chose this place.
