“A very welcome and Authentic surprise in the Poconos!!”

Blue Tequila Mexican Restaurant & Bar
Cuisines: Mexican
Restaurant details
Reviewed May 28, 2013

After a day of shopping and 2 days of eating junk food with the kids this past weekend(burgers, fries, wings, etc) I craved real food. I had seen the sign at Days Inn for Blue Tequila and questioned "Mexican in the Poconos?" (It's an easy on/off from the I80) And there were not many cars in the parking lot either... so I was a little skeptical. I became a little more skeptical when I go in through the motel lobby and see Non-Mexicans (Maybe Indian) at the bar or hosting. So I asked the hostess if this place was really Mexican. She said the chef was Mexican and I decided to stay. The kids and I were so happy we did. The chips were warm when they came out. The salsa was fresh not too spicy. We ordered a side of guacamole which was GREAT and enough for the 3 of us. (I'm a bit of guacamole snob having been to Rosa Mexicano and Dos Caminos in NY and Blue Tequila was right up there in quality)

My finnicky teenager ordered the Chicken Mole and loved it. Fresh and bountiful with rice/beans and corn tortillas. My daughter had their very cheesy quesadilla from the kids menu and it could have fed an adult. I had the steak fajitas which were sizzling and really tasty.
We couldn't have been happier with the food and the service was excellent. The server was knowledgable and very attentive. I took her recommendation on my Tequila sunrise drink and wasn't disappointed either. I'll be sure to visit the next time we're there. This place is a real asset to an area short on variety.

To Management: DON'T LOSE THE CHEF
