4.5 for food, but painful service

Not exaggerating when I say the food is really good. Tasted freshly made, and great flavors thoughout. The process of getting the food was painful. We ordered from the menu, and twice our waitress came back and said our choice was not available. It was 7:00 on a Saturday and the place was 75... read more

Fantastic place for dining solo, couple and group setting. The service is prompt and efficient. Establishment is clean and comforting. Pleasant atmosphere. Strongly recommended especially for those who enjoy Mexican food.

We grab take out from Tequilla Grill at least once a month because it is good and affordable. Their burritos are very good - I have the chicken burrito and the wife does the veggie burrito. Add the side of beans and rice - it's worth the extra couple of bucks. I recently tried their Chipotle Chicken dinner which was... More

The place was empty for a Friday night, and menu was limited. The only cheese they use for all their dishes is mozzarella! I was surprised that no cheddar or Monterey Jack, was used at all. It took a while for our dinner to come out and they gave us apps along with our dinner. Not impressed, no wonder it... More

While visiting my sister in Connecticut, she took my husband and I here for dinner. The food was amazing. I had chicken la crema which was so flavorful. I ate the entire entrée! You could tell that the food here was freshly made and not some reheated stuff. My husband had a beef burrito which was huge! My sister had... More

We've been coming here since they have opened... Abel and the gang are a great staff, and work to please. The food has always been super fresh, and have never once had an issue with consistency or quality. As far as local mexican goes, this place gets my vote. Their tacos are some of the freshest i have ever had!... More

I had tried this restaurant when it first opened, and it was just ok. To be fair, gave it another try recently and was very disappointed. Service was ok, but food was not what I expected for the price. The burrito was 90% rice, had a little chicken and a sliver of avocado. Rice and beans was an extra charge.... More

Always fresh food and awesome friendly service. We go there all the time- is not your typical "chain" restaurant. It's the best fresh authentic Mexican food I have ever had. A must try. The restaurant is a little "up scale" for Naugatuck. But has potential to be a very popular place.
