We’ve been to this local restaurant many times and have enjoyed each entree. The servers keep your drinks full, and never hesitate to refill the chips and salsa. I especially enjoy the carne asada as the flank steak is seasoned perfectly and grilled.

Very good food, served by a highly professional waiter. Drinks were made with good water and the portions were excellent. The salsa was heavy on the cilantro which I liked. Very good atmosphere as well.

Best salsa but we love it because it is on the Pass where we are staying. So, after a long day driving The Highway of Legends we hit Tequila's for dinner and back to the hotel.

Great Mexican food, with a difference, served in a wonderfully festive atmosphere. The menu is designed around authentic dishes from central Mexico, and not your usual "Tex-Mex" fare. Excellent service, too!
