“Fun and good”
Reviewed August 1, 2014 via mobile

To begin with, the staff is friendly and takes good care of you (everybody).
Food was excellent including the not so usual fried ant eggs (it sounds gross but it was a good dish).
The plates presentation was nice and the price was also very reasonable.
I would certainly go back.

“There is a reason La Tequila Is Rated #1 -- Because It Is #1”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

Spending just a night here, coming from our home in San Miguel de Allende, I tapped TripAdvisor for restaurants close to our hotel. Closest was "La Tequila," rated #1 in Guadalajara. From the greeter who was sweet, very pretty, and immediately switched to English when she partook of my Spanish, to a wonderful, well-appointed dining room, the evening started on a high note and finished the same way. The waiters were attentive and friendly, and it turns out that the restaurant has a person on staff that teaches everyone English. That said, when one is insistent on muddling through in Spanish, they play along. The food was nothing less than the best Mexican food I can remember and when you order a margarita "muy seco" here, it really comes out dry and perfect. The only regrettable part is that we are not often in Guadalajara, but be assured than any pass near here will find us at La Tequila. Don't miss it!

“Excellent food!”
Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

Everything was perfect: nice setting in the bar area upstairs, good music, good cocktails (of course with tequila) and excellent food: we tried the chicken and it was absolutely wonderful. Very good place to go for a romantic dinner or for drinks and a snacks with friends.

“Great food and fun atmosphere”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

Very good food. Be careful - portions are large :) We had 3 first courses for two people and it was enough. They make your salsa on the spot to your taste. Service is great and very friendly. Overall a fun experience!
