“Tex-Mex in SE Jax”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

We were in town for one night and needed a quick dinner near our hotel in SE Jacksonville. We weren't blown away by Tequila's (except for the screaming kids in the next booth) but the food ("fajita quesadilla" and "enchiladas supreme") was pretty good and the chips and salsa OK. The prices were reasonable.

“No Doubt Best Mexican in NE FL - Every item is fresh, hot & full of flavor”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Very uncharacteristic of most Mexican places, and I include my 2 years in New Mexico. Everything is very light and so fresh you can taste each ingredient. No heavy, lard fat flavors that most places use to get flavor out of cheap ingredients and mediocre recipes. The initial chips & salsa were our first hint of something special. They are the first to match or beat Paco's, a long-time Winter Park Florida local favorite. The chips are obviously made on-site from VERY delicate corn tortillas, served still - warm with a great mouth full of fresh tangy salsa that is neither bland, nor hot- just right for all. Christina & I tend to differ on chips & salsa, but this was great to both palates. She had the #3 combo of a huge beef taco loaded with meat, an enchilada and chile relliano. I had the enchilada supreme, with one each beef, cheese & chicken enchilada topped with cheese, lettuce & tomatoes and sides of spanish rice and refried beans. I am sure all of you with sensitive tummies or needing low-fat meals think this sound like death on a platter. The incredible thing about Tequila's is that NON OF THE ABOVE IS TRUE!! Both meals were very light and fresh-tasting. Everything ranked among the best examples of Mexican cuisine with no hint of being typical stale, lard-filled plates of items that all tasted the same. Each of our items carried it's own weight and we had no negatives other than needing more people to consume the very generous portions. Service, atmosphere and pricing were excellent. Tequila's is neither pretentious, nor loud-rowdy, but rather a great "date-night" or bring the kids place with great food and a full bar. We highly recommend Tequilla's and will return soon and often.
