They have a great happy hour special. The queso fundido with chorizo is really good. You can order it with out chorizo. Their food is authentic classy style. I love the decor of the reaturants. The bartenders and waiters are excellent. The sangria is great!! A great selection of Tequilas. Offcourse.Lol

Have been here many times over the last 20 years and it still has great food and drinks. The staff is exceptionally friendly and attentive.

This place has the most tender beef in the world, a myriad of different sauces, and world class service. We have never had a bad meal here...never even had an average meal here. Loved every meal, and we probably have had every entree that they offer. You will wait at the bar (have their strawberry margarita while you wait) for up to 45 minutes because this place is that good that they are always packed. I know somebody was complaining about waiting at the bar, but would people be there if it wasn't that good? My wife and I have been enjoying Tequilas since 1996 (when we started dating); unfortunately, since we don't live near the city anymore, our visits are less frequent, but it is always our top choice when we have the chance.

The food was uninspired and over priced for the quality. We sat at the bar as the restaurant was packed and there was no availability. The bar staff was friendly and the service was decent but it the food was nothing great. For example our appetizer was a plate of melted cheese that was stringy, greasy, with a small amount of ground beef and one pepper. Not impressed!

All of staff goes out of their way to ensure you have a seemless dinner experience. Oscar the manager chats with the guests and isn't too timid to "roll up his sleeves" to keep things flowing. Good food and so worth the price!
