“Horrible and expensive”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

It looks really trendy and the wait staff were friendly. That's why I gave the place "one star".

The drinks and meal were way too expensive and downright awful.
I went during (half price drinks) happy hour and had a regular margarita for $4.50. I got an 8oz glass full of ice and at most 3 oz of margarita.
I ordered a vegetable enchilada with black beans and rice for $10.50. The description sounded great. What arrived were two very small and very soggy blue corn tortillas with 2 tablespoons of diced carrots and corn inside. (I am not exaggerating). It was smothered in a thin white sauce. There was also 1/4 cup of black beans and 1/2 cup of rice on the plate.

Another diner had the chicken tortilla soup. It was as thick as paste and very salty. It was awful.
I will never go back.

“Amazing”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

tqla is one of my top choices when going to the Phoenix Valley, Cathy name, The service is great, and the food was amazing. But best of all is the bar. Good variety in alcohol, outstanding tap, No matter what i will come back to this restaurant again and again. If i were to recommend any restaurant in the Phoenix area it would be tqla.

“Great service, good food, nice decor”
Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

Not too much in the way of non-fast food Mexican in this area - but this place was really good. The server was excellent, the drink choices were great, and the food was very good. Would highly recommend.
