New menu

Several new dishes on menu. House Specialty dish was my choice and it was tasty and plentiful with enchilada(chicken) taco(beef) and burrito. Top shelf Margarita was not worth the price. Much, much to sweet.

I wasn't really impressed with Tequila's. I had fajitas and they were overcooked without much flavor. Service was alright, but the waitress seemed to be going through the motions rather than genuinely interested. A lot of flies in the dining area. I found the food better at another nearby Mexican restaurant so I probably won't be back to Tequilas.

Every time! Their food is amazing, but they are terribly slow with their service. Love their chimichanga, just takes an hour to get it.

We went on Fathers Day for a late lunch. I'd only been there once before about 8 years ago. Not sure now why we never went back but the food was very good and the Maragritas by the pitcher just hit the spot. The service was very friendly and our waitress was extremely attentive. My husband had the beef buritos... More

This is my favorite place for Mexican food. Love the fajitas. The cheese dip is very good too. It is a little spicy.

Tequila's is operated with care. The kitchen serves consistently delicious food with excellent weekly specials. The staff are friendly and the atmosphere is casual and clean. The bar serves better-than-average margaritas and is one of the few where they are consistently delicious. Their salsa is freshly made and fantastic in regular and hot versions. Take-out is available and is packaged... More

This is the best place in Middletown. Good food at a decent price, the staff has always been attentive. If you are in a hurry let them know, if you want a leisure meal they can do that too. Enjoy I'm a regular patron and highly recommend trying it out for yourself!

They have great authentic food, great margaritas. We go about once a month and have never left disappointed. The only comment to the negative is the some of the staff can be forgetful, no because their overly busy but because they text or are chatting with each other.

sometimes hot, sometimes cold...but we keep coming back. Friendly staff, large portions, and when they make a mistake, they quickly correct the error. We've tried to eat the menu, but to many selections!
