“Seriously? Best Mexican? People need to get out more.”

Restaurant details
Reviewed September 14, 2011

We went to El Tequila because of the other reviews. Pretty funny! I've had better salsa from our co-op deli. Every Mexican place I've ever been to in the Twin Cities had better food. I really shouldn't complain about how fast the food came out, but there is NO way the meal was freshly prepared for us. Perhaps I should've had the fajitas, but I won't go back. They DID serve some strong drinks, though. Our server was friendly, but the rest of the help seemed kinda annoyed by our presence. I'd recommend to a friend for some fast/cheap food.

I agree with the other reviews. Service ok, food is very good and the salsa is outstanding. You can buy and take the salsa home with you. I drive 25 miles to go to this place and consider it the best Mexican restaurant that I know of.

There's nothing really wrong with El Tequila. I stop in every now and then and enjoy tacos or enchiladas or whatever. I never get the feel, though, that the people there feel terribly invested in the place's success. Maybe the actual proprietor spends most of his/her time at one of the other locations.

Worth a visit for the salsa alone; I'm ticked the El Tequila in Farmington closed ...
