“Great Mexican Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

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.

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

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.

“A good choice in Cortez.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

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. The food is good, not great. My wife had a grilled shrimp and mushroom dish which she said was excellent. I had a chili verde burrito which was a bit disappointing. The meat was tough and tasted smokey, suggesting it was grilled. If you can handle the noise and the crowding this is a good place.

“Uneven”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

For starters, the margaritas and beer are excellent, and very reasonably priced. The chips & salsa are delicious. They offered a cabbage-based dip that was very unique, and delicious. Their menu is expansive, and offers things I've never seen offered in a Mexican restaurant, like the pork chops I ordered. They were pretty good, but the rice was so-so, and the tiny portion of beans was too salty for my taste. The shredded beef enchilada my wife ordered was not that great. It contained potatoes, so it was like they used canned beef stew. The prices, and service were average. If we ever return to Cortez, we might be willing to try them again, but it wouldn't be a top priority.

“Always good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

Like Tequila's Carne Asada the best. I also like the cabbage "salsa" they serve with the chips. Smaller than some of the others but a festive atmosphere.
