We were tourists traveling from out of state. We were amazed at the crowd this place drew even on a Monday night. Lots of locals. The atmosphere is nice. The food is good. Service was quick. What my husband was thrilled with.... the beer! Really good beer at a reasonable price.

Great real Mexican food at reasonable $$ and good service to boot. Our meals were hot & fresh. Recommended over others while in Cortez.

Waiter was great, food was very good. My wife said her food was a bit too spicy, but not bad. I have already recommended this place to others, and I would go back myself.

Overnighted in Cortez when visiting Mesa Verde and walked to this little restaurant from our hotel. Lovely 'ritas, good beer and lovely food all in a quaint setting with very good service.

Though I don't drink alcohol their food was exceptional. I loved their simple bean and cheese burrito. I didn't think it would be nearly as good as it was.

The bad thing about Tequila's is that it is a very busy, crowded restaurant. If you want an intimate or a quiet dinner go somewhere else. On the other hand, the service was prompt and attentive.
