Very good Mexican food, with great service!

Really cute place, with nice service for sure. The food is pretty good too, especially for a chain type restaurant, and at reasonable prices. I was in during the day, but I can imagine since there aren't too many choices around, it could be pretty busy at night, so maybe come early!

Every week I would come here for the 3 enhiladas w/ different sauces. Excellent, humble family-owned restaurant with good service and ample portions. If you like Mexican food, this is the real deal. We're moving back to Arizona now and I almost want to ask for the recipe. They also have a restaurant in Northfield in a strip mall. The... More

Love this place. It's my favorite Mexican restaurant in the area. Reminds me so much of puerto Vallarta. Authentic looking, decorations and food is awesome. Best margaritas hands down besides the ones I get when I'm vacationing in Mexico. The owner rocks and is always so sweet to us! Best part close to home!!

What a great place, it's small but that gives it more of the family style. Everyone there is wonderfully pleasant and the food was great. And for what they charge for the food, you'll be hard pressed to find abetter Mexican Restaurant.

Jumped off the highway for a quick lunch at this little spot and was pleasantly surprised by the authenticity of this little place, both the food and the staff. Service was good, fast, and the portions and prices were more than fair.

Always a welcoming staff. Great food. Family run. We celebrate birthdays there as well as just family nights out. It's a small establishment with wonderful people. The food is very nicely portioned for price. The desserts are very tasty as well.

(second attempt to post, pic loaded but original review did not). My husband and I ate at El Tequila Mexican Restaurant in Faribault a couple months ago. We are not from "Faribo" but have been trying out some placed here during our drives through. El Tequila is not a large restaurant. It has traditional Mexican decor and many of the... More

There is a lanquage barrier/problem and if you order something slightly different (maybe something without onions let's say), the customer doesn't know if the waitress speaks English well enough to understand what was said and one never knows if the cooks pay attention to notes on order. The food has been good, but I stopped going there because of the... More

Don't let my title discourage you, if you like Mexican. I just felt that with the other reviewers speaking so highly of it - I had high expectations. And this girl LOVES mexican food...and I thought it was just an average mexican restaurant. The outside was uninviting but the inside was warm, clean and friendly service. Very small! Truthfully, I'm... More
