yummy Mexican food in a fun setting

We keep going back to this local's favorite, lunch or dinner. Large menu and generous portions, great service, nice decor. I love the chicken quesadilla for a meal, delicious, but it's all good.

If you are looking for a real Mexican meal that is not afraid to add some spice then this is for you! Interesting menu, including plenty of seafood options. I chose the seafood burrito, highly recommend. Prices are from $8.00 up. Service was good, food came in a timely manner. I would go back.

I met my dad here for lunch. We shared the steak fajitas and each got 3 fajitas. It was super plentiful and the waiter brought us both flour and corn tortillas. The fajitas were really tasty! Service was quick and friendly

The food is very good, and the service is very good. It is a great place to take the family. They have great fish, which is usually on the specials. As you come in the door you need to check the specials board.

Tequila's is a very good Mexican food restaurant here in Cortez. They have a wide variety of items on the menu, from lunch to dinner, good drinks, good Margaritas. Service is prompt, and food is served fairly promptly. The only thing is on weekend nights, be there early or there is usually a wait. Very popular place in town! It's... More

We were lucky these folks were open late. We had a wonderful meal. Super Margaritas. All the food was fresh. Great salsa and chips. I had the carne asada plate which was excellent. Staff was very helpful and friendly. I have no problem recommending this place to eat.

The Margarita Original is the best margarita in town. I like the chile verde the best. Usually friendly/attentive servers.
