Although the food was great and the service very good, this place didn't last very long. Unfortunately. There really isn't an authentic Mexican restaurant in Niceville.

This place was one of favorite places for ceviche, my husband and children loved the burgers, and almost everything I tried from the menu was just plain great. Unfortunately, Tejas has been closed for about a year, since late summer 2012. I wish they'd come back!

I went for the buffet but was very disappointed. The quesadillas were the best thing on the line but you can only eat so many of those. They had something that looked like a churro but it had a hot dog in the center. Still not sure what that was. As of August the place is closed for good.

The lunch buffet was small but so good. Even the Spanish rice was flavorful. Enchiladas and a Shrimp & Crawfish quesadillas were our favorites. I am Hispanic and my spouse is Southern, both of us were pleasantly surprised. Oh and it was very inexpensive!!!

Today was my second lunch experience at this place, and I have been less than impressed both times. The first time, the service was very slow, but the waitress kept our drinks and chips filled, so I decided not to say anything - maybe it was fluke that everything else was slow. After my lunch experience today, I can say... More

One of our favorite restaurants. We were sad to see them leave downtown Fort Walton Beach. Give it a try you will not be disappointed.
