My wife and I were traveling on the east coast of the US. We stopped for gas in northern Delaware. We were going to buy food at the gas station but decided to stop for a sit down meal. Looking through our TripAdvisor app we found Tequilas. What a pleasant surprise. The restaurant was very inviting and close to the... More

Ordered a nice carna asada salad and margarita for lunch and enhoyed both very much. Nit much ambience but when the drinks are good and the price is right I can create my own ambience. Servuce could have been better.

I have loved Tequila's for a long time. First, you get chips and salsa for free. But however, after I ordered, we waited a lengthy time before receiving food and some of the food was cold.

We were in the Middletown area on Labor Day and our first two choices for a late lunch were closed so we tried this place. The house margarita is a $4 special on Mondays so we had to try it. Our lunch entrees of Lunch 1 (chicken enchilada and cheese enchilada) and Lunch sized Chimichanga were tasty. The complimentary chips... More

We eat a lot of Mexican style food. Tequila's is still my favorite. The vegetarian special dinner is my favorite. Salsa and pico de gio are really good. The chips seem fresh. My only objection is I would like to see them develop some more modern margarita flavor sand larger glasses. Service has never been an issue.

When I'm in the mood for Mexican this is the restaurant I go to. The food is great, the portions are huge, and it's not over priced. The weekends are usually very busy so it's best to call ahead. They also have a decent happy hour menu.

The service was slow, the waitress came out with an attitude, and my order was wrong when it finally came out. Haven't been back since.

One of the few Mexican restaurants in the area, this place started out pretty awesome. Really good guacamole and the tamales were also good. Something happened and the quality has been getting worse. I went about 3 weeks ago and the quality seemed better but the service was as bad as the time before.

Thank cllsrr
