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.

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.
