I loved my overstuffed burrito. The sauce alone was amazing. There were several extra hot sauces on the table my favorite was the brown one. Can't remember the name but --- amazing. Service was slow. Server did not seem like she could care less about us. Put ice in soda even when asked not to. Forgot extra lime. But the... More

The chunky home made salsa was the highlight of our dinner. Maybe the drinks are memorable -- the food was forgettable. It was a long wait for dinner -- then the service was slow. We came on taco night -- inexpensive tacos -- bland tacos. The menu talks about spicy this and that. Not from what we ate. The "spicy"... More

I'm not usually a fan of Mexican restaurants because of the typical quality, but I do love Mexican food. So I was a little leery when family said they wanted to go to Tequila Mockingbird, but I figured I'd try it with an open mind. I started with the short rib quesadilla, and it was amazing! The meat was cooked... More

This place was recommended and did not disappoint. We were here on a Sunday and sat in the bar area where several football specials were being offered. I would highly recommend the margaritas and the mahi or rockfish tacos. Seafood enchiladas were also delicious. This place seems like a favorite local hangout.

We have been to Tequila Mockingbird many times and it never disappoints us! We love their salsa and always order their queso! Today my husband ordered steak tacos and I had the la casa salad with chicken. Both were great! I love their chipotle ranch dressing! Since we went for a late lunch - we didn't have to wait! But...

My wife and I met some friends at Tequila Mockingbird. I found the food to be very delicious and the service was great. After one visit, I see this becoming a favorite.

First time patrons. House Marguerita was giant and delicious only $5 at happy hour. Rock fish tacos were great with sides of rice and re-fried beans. Steak and chicken fajitas were sizzling and served with fresh lettuce, tomato, cheese, tortillas. Well spiced and flavorful. Complimentary corn chips and fresh salsa were exceptional. Fresh made guacamole was delicious. Our server was... More

If you're up for American Mexican food at the beach in a comfy setting Tequila Mockingbird is a great place to try. Our dishes ranged from rockfish, fried fish, and grilled shrimp tacos to enchiladas and chimichangas. The portions were hearty and the drink list was fun. You get a basket of chips and fresh salsa while you wait for... More

This is my wife's personal favorite restaurant of anywhere and I see her point. The first round of chips are on the house with chunky salsa generously consisting of onion and jalapeno in addition to the fresh tomato. We ordered guacamole which was delicious if a bit mild for my tastes. Very creamy avocado however which was nice. My wife... More
