Just had a wonderful dinner with friends at this modest restaurant. I had one of the vegetarian selections - Veggie Taco. Just fabulous!!!! Don't let the exterior decor (not a bad decor but not a decor that wows you) deter you from visiting this little gem...

The nacho appetizer is huge and I suggest on asking the waiter/waitress for the portion size before placing any additional orders.

My wife and I have eaten here frequently in recent years. We have tried many menu items and never been disappointed. They have some wonderful low calorie items, particularly whole wheat tortillas with grilled chicken, salsa, salad, and guacamole. This is our diet meal of choice.

Our family decided to try Tequila Grande the other evening. Our daughter, son in law and granddaughter have just moved to Vienna. There were many good selections on the menu. My son in law and my husband ordered enchilada platters which were delicious and very generous. Our daughter had a plate with a beef burrito and chicken enchilada, which included... More

This is a quaint location that is a hidden gem in Vienna Virginia. I don't know why so often passing by the parking lot is empty. I am here to hopefully spread the word that this is the BEST place to come for real AUTHENTIC MEXICAN FOOD. I had the Sunken Borrito and it was truly incredible. The flavors the... More

Forget Chevy's and Chili's - Tequila Grande has been around for 20 years and for good reason. Everything is freshly made, and very good. We've never had a bad meal, and will come back again and again.

Service is great, food is great and price is great. What's not to love? We ordered from the menu with minor changes and it was cooked perfectly to order!

It's all OK. Ok food, ok service, ok price. I think they get most of their business because of the location. Though the décor is Mexican and the food is sort of Mexican, it is a little off in ambiance and flavor. Not bad, just not really Mexican. Food tastes more canned or packaged than fresh. And the waiters and... More

We have been here several times and each visit has been as good as the last. The food is cooked to order, is fresh and always hot. Service is always good. This has fast become a family favorite!

Not worth the stop; very unimpressive food - bland and highly salted; service was unpleasant and almost rude. Maple Avenue in Vienna is a restaurant rich environment, there is really no good reason to stop here.
