“Enjoyable meal”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

Open on a Sunday night, good range of food. Big portion sizes. Unsure if they offer smaller portion sizes.

“Not your average menu! :-)”
Reviewed June 9, 2012

Stopped for lunch on our way to Augusta, GA, based on TripAdvisor reviews. What a delicious surprise this place was!

Menu has plenty of options inspired in Mediterranean and Mexican cuisine. Ricardo, the owner and genius behind this cafe, was available the Saturday we stopped for lunch, greeting customers, bringing hot plates to the table and preparing drinks. (he was gracious enough to improvise a tamarind "tea" in lieu of margaritas, as I'm following doctors orders and staying away from alcoholic beverages)

Before the main entrees are served you get to enjoy home made tortilla chips, Mexican style (totopos) which come with delicious mild sauce and refried beans (far and away from the tasteless paste that most Mexican restaurants serve in the area. These beans were very tasty and so was the sauce.

Our entrees came with fresh salads. The Greek dressing (my choice) was very good, with hints of oregano and lots of feta cheese to enjoy.

My husband tried the fish tacos. Tilapia was very mild, cooked to perfection and served with a delicious tartar sauce. Beans and very well seasoned rice on the side. My choice was the chicken chipotle which comes on a bed of creamy mash potatoes and served with grilled zuchinni and yellow squash caramelized on the grill.

We finished our meal with their chocolate cheesecake. The portion of this dessert is rather small, but priced accordingly (at $1.75 we had enough to share a few full spoons of a creamy and chocolaty delightful dessert)

Overall, their prices may be a little bit higher than your average lunch spot, but the quality of their food -freshly prepared and with attention to detail- justifies the few extra bucks.

“Best food in Madison”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

Don't be fooled by the name thinking it is a Mexican restaurant. The menu is varied and the foo, especially the fish, is always fresh. The fish tacos are wonderful as well as the nightly specials. We have never had a bad meal at Tequila. The wine and beer list is good. The restaurant is small but the staff is great. It's sure worth trying if you are visiting in the Madison area.

“OK”
Reviewed May 20, 2012

I don't get all of the great reviews. Maybe I just went on an off night. The food was ok, nothing spectacular.The atmosphere was not all that great. Don't know if I will go back.
