The food really wasn't very good, but it was pricey. We didn't think it was worth it. Not much choice in the area though.

The restaurant has a very comfortable atmosphere and good for families. The food is very good and served fairly quickly with a average menu selection. Beans, rice, chips and salsa are served with most meals.

Stopped here headed north on the advice of other reviewers, we were not disappointed. Quick service and good food . We had beef and chicken fajitas with all the fixings but the queso was the best . I'll stop here again

The food was very good and the staffing was also awesome the only thing we didn't not enjoy was the salsa it almost seemed like ketchup with some cilantro not horrible but not very good

Edgar G, Manager at Tequila's Family Mexican Restaurant, responded to this review

I'm thrilled you enjoyed your entree, Dustin! It's awesome that our team took good care of you, too. It's a shame that the salsa wasn't quite your favorite, though -- we'd hate for it to be compared to ketchup. I appreciate your feedback, though! All the best, Edgar, General Manager More

From the colorful decor to the tasty food this restaurant is a pleasant place to stop and enjoy the Trinidad area. The portions are large and presented in a colorful arrangement of carefully prepared Southwestern cuisine.

This is a very good Tex-Mex/Authentic Mexican restaurant. Consistently very good and always busy. Deep and varied drink menu...the $9 Patron frozen rita was awesome.. I had the Carne Asada and it was one of the best I've had. Very flavorful, just pink and tasty. The wife, who is a mole perfectionist loved her enchiladas. She said it was authentic... More

We hope you make it back again soon! It's great that our mole impressed your wife -- that's the best compliment we could receive. I'm glad you loved the Patron margarita, too. See you next time! Safe travels, Edgar, General Manager More

We stopped here on our way through 8-5-16. Pleasant bright atmosphere with colorful decor. Service was very good. Hubby had fajitas which he said were very good. I had a chicken and mushroom with cream sauce dish ( can't remember the name). It was also good, but different. Our bill was $32 before tip.

While staying for a few days in Trinidad we had dinner at Tequila"s which was just down the street from our hotel. The food was great and so was the service. Reasonably priced. The Pico de Gallo was to die for!!

Nice Mexican restaurant. Atmosphere and furnishings were colorful and inviting. Portions are quite generous. Fajitas were very good. Moderately priced.

We were reminded why we didn't like this place the first time. Understaffed, order did not come out right and no one refills your drink! It's so very loud and the Mexican food is ok at best.

It's a shame your entree wasn't quite your thing even on the second go around. I also apologize for the poor service -- long waits and messed up orders aren't the norm around here. I appreciate you giving us another try, though. All the best, Edgar, General Manager More
