No Mexicans in the kitchen, but who cares

Have been there several times and would return even if it wasn't the closest restaurant to my house. Good variety of choices and nothing isn't good (although some things are better than others, but that is a matter of personal choice too).

Stopped while on business trip. Unfamiliar with the area. Good parking. Clean looking place. Hostess promptly greeted us. They have a rather extensive menu. Lunch selections are at the back. The Sunken Burrito was pretty tasty and filling. One member if our group doesn't care for Mex food but he found a Ranch Burger that he liked. Prices are reasonable... More

My girlfriend and I come here often and always get enchiladas. I usually get the crab and shrimp. Last night I wanted to try something different and chose your a la carte Taco version instead. Wow, I was highly impressed! The smoky taste of the grilled shrimp was delicious. Great portion sizes and quality for the price. Think I will... More

We arrived late, close to closing time on a weeknight. We were seated and assured that the entire menu was available. Our waiter was prompt and she was delightful. When the food arrived it was hot, good presentation, wonderful flavors, and can't beat the price! My spouse is usually critical of Mexican restaurants but he loved this place. I was... More

Tequila Grand is one of my favorite 'authentic' Mexican restaurants. I have many great meals here, and the staff has always been very friendly and efferent.

We noticed a change after this summer. Most dishes are much spicier than in the past. However, that is not always a good thing. I used to like the chicken poblano, but lately I cannot eat it because of how spicy it is. Wish the recipes would go back to what they were before.

I went with a friend, both of us used to live in New Mexico. There's nothing in the metro area that can compare with NM cuisine, but this restaurant was reasonably good for this region. I ordered enchiladas and my friend got tamales. We split a pumpkin flan for dessert. None of it was super great, but we had no... More

Very mediocre service after the lunch rush. Kinda like we were a annoying them while they prepared for evening crowd. Not the cleanest and no hot water in men's room after 2 min water running. Save your money and eat Taco Bell. Tamales were very average. Chille Relleno really good.

The place doesn't look much from afar. It is right on maple street right next to a local hotel. I was a little apprehended as I approach the place.
