good food

My wife and I ate at El Tequila Salsa recently. I had enchiladas and my wife had a steak sandwich that I ate some of. Both of the meals were very good and the service from the staff was excellent. We will go back again in the future.

I was pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness, the service, and most importantly the food. We will stop again on our way home.

Stopped by here after a visit to Granite Peak ( I've been before, but wanted to take my friends ). The fajitas ( and house hot sauce ) were even better than I remembered. Service staff was great well, and made it a very pleasant meal. Very reasonably priced food and drinks as well.

I absolutely love this place! I go back home to visit my mother every couple months and we always go to this restaurant! I live in Texas! And outside of Texas this is the best and most authentic Mexican Restaurant I've ever been to! The food and the service are incredible! It's so good we went and ate Chimichangas for... More

There were 3 of us. Two of us ordered Enchiladas Pablanos and the other fajita. We go here because it is my son's favorite place. Their cheese enchiladas in our opinion are the best around. Only thing I would like is if they added veges to the plate. Next time I will have to ask! We have never had a... More

We had to go back after our last great meal here. This was even better. My fajita quesadillas were excellent. My husband said the pork carnitas were the BEST he has had, anywhere. On top of that, our server, Pedro, did an excellent job of making sure that we were well taken care of. Can't wait to return.

I want to say that I have been to many Mexican Restaurants in many states in the U.S. and Mexico and this Mole sauce was the tastiest and freshest I have ever had! I had to taste it many times with a spoon to tantalize my taste buds and guess a couple of the ingredients that were substantiated by the... More

It has been several years since we were here. We stopped going because the quality seemed to decline, as did the service. We stopped here on a Sat., mid-afternoon. We were promptly greeted and seated. Fresh chips and salsa arrived as soon as we were seated. They even provided a milder version of salsa for my husband. The quesadilla I... More
