You have to try the grill outside the restaurant...pork tacos, burritos, etc. absolutely the best. You can order items outside and then take inside and eat chips and salsa or whatever. But if your bag is tacos, burritos, tortas, etc. this is the go to place.

I'm writing not about the restaurant proper but the side service they have outside of the restaurant which kind of reminds me of a food cart without the cart and street food in Mexico which I have been to many times and I also grew up on Mexican food. This is no 4 star restaurant, remember that. They have the... More

Very good Mexican food. Can be quite busy during lunch time, so the earlier you arrive the better. I've experienced both good and bad service, but overall I'd say the service is quick and staff friendly.

Getting ready to eat when I noticed large patch of Mushrooms growing out of the corner by the ceiling. This is in the back conference room. Hopefully this has been addressed!

If you come to this restaurant and the doors are open and they have fans set up blowing down the aisle, just walk right back out! If you think its hot outside its an oven inside. I ordered the Pollo Asado. The chicken had great flavor but was overcooked and dried out. The onions and peppers could have been cooked... More

We stayed in the motel next to the Grill and so it was a 2 minute walk away which made it an easy choice. We like the casual atmosphere and the complimentary chips and salsa and they have an extensive menu. We chose to split the steak fajitas and were very satisfied with the preparation, delivery and amount of food... More

I grew up in the Sonoran Desert...spoiled by great Mexican food. The offerings in McMinnville pale in comparison. Tequila Grill, though, is the worst of the bunch. A few years ago I went with a large group. Everyone's meal was very salty. I went again in December with a group and was disappointed again. Very bland. Very saucy. Uninspiring. I... More

We popped in on a weekday night and were seated right by the door- asked to move and we were accommodated with a smile. Super fast service, huge menu which caused some confusion. The food was different than we were expecting, with the goodies we normally get inside a burrito piled on top- other than the meat. Excellent salsa and... More

I had a craving for Mexican food (as I often do) and decided to check out the Tequilla Grill, since it was very positively reviewed in TA. It is located side-by-side with a tacqueria, so we had a momentary confusion over which was the restaurant, but sorted it out quickly. We were given both the lunch menu as well as... More
