Great find! We stopped off for dinner on our way to Telluride from Mesa Verde. What a nice surprise. Reasonable prices, really good food, and they give you a ton. Nice service.

We ate at Tequila's tonight at the recommendation of our hotel clerk. We were not disappointed. Service was top rate. Free taco chips with salsa and cole slaw were put on the table and replenished. The margaritas were good. We split the shrimp and mushroom taco meal and it was more than enough food for two. It came with a... More

Went into the restaurant after a tour on the Ute Resevation, so we were rreally hungry. 1 hoor before lunch was over and the staff as just as pleasant and helpful as if they just opened. The food was the best Mexican we have had since being on the road for almost 2 months up and down the West Coast.... More

My son ordered ground beef tacos... and occasionally it happens where one might get a single hair in their food... not this place. He took a bite out of the taco, and cooked into the beef - was practically A HAIRBALL! You know, like the kind of tangled mess one would clean out of a brush! It made us all... More

It's right on the Main Street so it's easy to spot. It's also close to most of the hotels. The staff was friendly and fast. The food is good and not expensive.
