Can't believe no one has posted photos of this dive. It has an inviting exterior and has outdoor dining. We scouted it out on our innkeepers recommendation. The dining room was cool and welcoming coming inside. Nice to be out of the 95+ degree heat....More

We really enjoyed our recent visit to Tequila Grill! Although we enjoy our regular Iowa City options; it was nice to take a short drive and try something different! It has a very relaxed atmosphere, great service and wonderful food.

We had an awesome meal and it was very authentic. Our food was delicious and it's very affordable. Perfect for us as we weren't looking for anything fancy, we just wanted good food.

When we walked in we waited a few minutes to be seated. Employees walked right by us without acknowledging us and we finally stopped one to ask if we just sat ourselves. He didn't speak English, but gestured that we could sit. I grabbed some...More
