Very good Mexican food

We really like Tequila's Restaurant. Usually pretty crowded, which can slow service down somewhat, but the food is worth the wait. They have the usual Mexican fare . Worth the trip.

We love coming here for Margaritas and their salsa. Authentic Mexican with great fajitas and other Mexican dishes. Our favorite is the Chicken and Shrimp Burrito.

We've been to Tequila's several times and not been disappointed by the food. It's usually pretty crowded which usually says something about the quality. Unfortunately, the service is sometimes slow due to the fact that it's so busy. Food is pretty authentic Mexican and we have not had anything we didn't like. Great selection of tequilas and the margaritas are... More

I thought this was a dive bar when I first moved to Middletown. I was wrong! Great food. Place was packed but my wife and I were seated quickly. Food was really really good. Good choice of beers. I can't wait to go back. It's a great place to go when you get tired of the chains.

Wife wanted to go here on advice from friend. Not a huge fan of Mexican, but if food is good I am good. Arrived and it was packed, but we were seated right away luckily. Server took a few minutes to get to us but was apologetic. Apps came shortly before the entrees, but I was ok with it. It... More

Used trip advisor to find a good Mexican restaurant. Just a few minutes off 1 heading south. The service was great, friendly cordial and attentive. Short wait, not busy. The food was very good from nachos to fajitas to ice cream. We would return if in the area.

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.
