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.

We stopped here on our way home as we love Mexican food. Chips and salsa were just ok. Salsa was good but it did not have much of a kick. Dips were bland and tasted like they had about one day of shelf life left. The shrimp quesadilla was good. The fried chimichanga was very good according to my husband.... More
