“Great grilled food and tequila!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

We frequent this restaurant every year, this was our third time, when we travel to a conference in Philly. The service has always been friendly, not very fast, but so pleasant it won't matter. The manager came to our table and answered menu questions for the folks that didn't speak Spanish. All the food was delicious, fresh and nicely presented. The guacamole and pickled jalapeños that they put on your table initially are really good.

Don't go there if you're in a hurry, need lots of light, or don't like loud restaurants. There is good energy in the place, the tequila selection is good and it's an all around fun time.

“Not bad better than average but nothing to write home about”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

Better than average Mexican and good drinks in a very cool old building. I would come back but it I would probably stick with drinks as the food was ok but not amazing.

“Loved the place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

Spent our anniversary at Tequilas and absolutely enjoyed it. Great place, very friendly and attentive waiter and staff in general, great tequilas (the real ones) and excellent food, very authentic Mexican cooking. Wish they would have a location in NY.

“Good Mexican in a beautiful building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

First off the restaurant is located in what I'm guessing was a fine old home, what I loved is they kept a lot of the original features such as the marble fireplace and chandelier. Food was very nice and waitstaff great, we enjoyed our evening at Tequilas.

“Great sangria !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

Generous and tasty Sangria! It was not on Menu but the waiter told us about . The service was very nice and the food was great. I am not fond of very spicy food, and I was corrected oriented by Maitre and it was a delicious option.
