This place is awful we had to beg for drink refills food was all wrong didn't get anything we ordered right. We were there with our special needs daughter for her birthday. She was even wearing a hat that said happy birthday. They sang happy...birthday to other tables not us. They couldn't even take time to clear table so we could talk. This was the worest restaurant I've been to in a long time even the food was bland. Beware of this place.More

The salsa for the chips and salsa was terrible. Very watery. I bet you...can find a much better Mexican restaurant in the area.More

I was there for lunch yesterday and the first thing I saw was the salsa for the chips being put in a styrofoam container. What? They can't wash a small bowl? I ordered the steak taco dinner and something was definitely off with the flavor...of the meat and I did not care for it. They were also a bit skimpy with the rice. Instead of setting out silverware and a napkin they were both in a plastic wrap and the napkin was quite cheesy, like the absolute worst quality. Since my waitress never came back during the meal I did not have the opportunity to get another napkin. I won't be going back - ever.More

So, we were in town and I wanted to take my husband to a good Mexican restaurant. I picked Mr. Tequila, I have been there before and was ready to enjoy a good restaurant. We ordered cheese queso fundido. It was supposed to have pico...de Gallo ( so the menu said ). We get it and all that is in it is cheese and meat. My husband called the waiter over, the waiter that it only comes with meat in it. “No”, we said and showed him the menu. He said that there was a misprint on the menu but he would bring a dish of pico for us ( great ). Then the waiter took our order. My husband ordered a fried chimichanga. Food was brought, looked good but as my husband started eating he realized that the chimichanga was not fried at all. When the waiter came past my husband politely told the food was great but it wasn’t fried as he requested . The waiter apologized but made no attempt to correct the problem. My husband decided not to cause fuss so he just continued eating his plate. Toward the very end of his meal he felt something plastic in his mouth. Pulled it out and found it to be a plastic tie. When we finally called the waiter over to the table all he could do was apologize. Well ,we waited for the bill, thinking that at the very least he would get his meal taken care of by the manager. Not manager came. Soon the waiter came with our bill. My husband looked at it and asked the waiter if he had talked to the manager about the plastic and the waiter replied yes but he was told to go ahead and charge us for the meal. My husband went to the manager who basically called my husband a liar, told him there was not way the plastic could have been in the food and that he would take only $3.00 off his meal. My husband was told to calm down . We spent $72 For our meal and drinks. To be called a liar is an insult, we were not looking for the whole dinner to be comped but when an Entree has foreign matter in it, the right thing to do is to at least is not to charge the customer for it. I would not recommend this place to ANYONE If you decide to chance it and go, look at every bite you take!!More

We were travelling through Bradenton and were looking for a Mexican Restaurant on our Google app. We found ourself close to Mr. Tequila and decided to give it a try. It was an off time, around 2 PM, so we were greeted and seated immediately....Our waitress was very friendly and competent. My wife ordered the Special Nachos with shredded chicken which she pronounced very good, but lacking jalapeno peppers. We were provided a small dish of them, but found an extra 99 cents on the bill for them. I had the Burrito Grande with shredded beef. It was very large but a bit bland, although the sauce it was served with was very good. All in all, we enjoyed our visit and would not hesitate to visit again.More

Yes, still serving up great Mexican food. Atmosphere cosy, but plenty of buzz. Service was great too. Tried (new to me anyway) crab, shrimp and fish fajitas, absolutely delicious. Great 2for1 beer deals and the frozen margaritas (one traditional, one raspberry) went down a treat...with the ladies. Terrific night out.More

This is one of my husbands favorite places, all because of the salsa!!! He hates onions and can’t stand a chunky salsa. So, he loves this salsa because it’s super thin! The taste is fabulous and he loves that each person gets their own little...glass of it! Of course he has to get multiple refills! This is one of the few Mexican places he can go to and not bring his own salsa! Yes, he does that!! (I make it from scratch and he takes it with him to other places, but not here!) We had fajitas, which were good too. But nothing really matters if he has the salsa he loves!!!!More
