Have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. The service is always prompt and friendly. Very accommodating to picky appetites and substitutions. Portion sizes are large and bar drinks are strong! Love the fajitas!

I like everything, specially the decor. The food is great. Huge menu. Full bar. Large servings. Fast, good service. Great for family dinning. One of the best restaurants in town. Best Mexican food in Trinidad. Serves lunch & dinner. I think they're open 7 days a week. Yummy food! I love it!!

So we had checked into the Super 8 in Trinidad, CO. The desk clerk gave us a few suggestions for restaurants in the area and thought Tequila's sounded good. We were seated immediately. The decor was very festive. The waitress (I wish I could remember her name) was very efficient. We each had a margarita within minutes. The chips and... More

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.
