The food at El Tequila is the best! Simply put, I have yet to find any mexican restaurant that compares. They have a wide variety of dishes in their menu and they all have a unique and authentic flavor. The service is beyond friendly, they make you feel like family. And the service is amazingly fast. This is a must... More

We tried Grand Plaza down town and was not very impressed, so we decided to give El Tequila a try. Place was typical Mexican decor, but was clean. Food was excellent and have actually been back a couple times. Give it a try.

Excellent food. 10% takeout discount for seniors. Google map on the phone was not accurate (located it very near Taco Bell - haha!). It can be hard to find coming from the north. It's on the east side of the road, 1/2 mile south of a Mobil station. Worth a few u-turns til you spot it.

This is the type of restaurant that when people leave Faribault the one thing they want to do is eat here when they come back! Great service, cute little restaurant, delicious authentic Mexican food and great portions. Very reasonable priced, not to mention their chips and salsa given to every table, Yummy! I crave their rice and beans, just about... More
