“Great food/ Great service”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

We arrived on a Monday and the place was busy, we were seated quickly. Ashley was our waitress and she was excellent! Ashely was very professional, polite and knowledgable about the food. The food was prepared fresh, how wonderful and it was authentic! The chips were fresh the salsa was homemade and had flavor. We also tried the guacamole which was made to Order had some spice we loved that. My husband had carne asada with beans and rice, very good. I had three tacos pork, fish and beef wonderful flavor and none of that cheese that a lot of restaurants try and slop all over your food and call it Mexican. We will be back.

“IN an Area of many Mexican Restaurants- Eat HERE”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

This is a restaurant that is trying to do everything right so it can make a stand above the rest of the Mexican restaurants in the area. The competition just in Perrysburg is fierce, so making a mistake could hurt business. Saying this I highly recommend eating here. The food is plentiful, margarittas are potent and staff attentive. You can tell by the parking lot and the standing room only at peak times that many other fans of a good fajita dinner have discovered TekeLa's. My husband and I split an order of chicken fajitas with an extra side of guacamole plus extra tortillas and took food home. That tells you about portion size. If you want fast and the usual stuff go to the competion, but if you crave something better, try Tekela's. We will be back.

“Mexican, made from scratch!”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

Everything on the menu, and made behind the bar, is FRESH! There is not a better margarita anywhere in NW Ohio! The service can be a little slow, unless you are fortunate enough to get a good waiter/waitress! Other than that, it is always a first class dining experience! You must try the steak fajitas! Not sure what they marinate their meat in, but it is absolutely delicious! You can make a meal out of their appetizers, which are half price (along with drinks) from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. every day, including Sunday! A must try restaurant, if you are anywhere near Toledo!

“Good Food!”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We have been here a few times now. It's too bad there isn't more seating as I really don't see myself willing to stand in line for Mexican food. It's good food but not into hour long waiting lines.
The quality of the food is good but the service was a bit slow. We did have a hard time getting our waiters attention for refills on our drinks. I give it a 4 because the food itself is very tasty. The prices are fair and the portions are as well.... We will be back!

“For people who love Mexican food.....”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Tekela's is a fairly new restaurant. It's mexican with a not to tangy flavor. This restaurant's doesn't go over board on the spices. So, if you not too keen on hot spicy food, this is the place for you. Priced well within reason, you get your money's worth. Expect long waits on busy nights. This place is very busy...
