I was a little leery of this small place in a grocery store strip mall. There were three different salsas - one was quite zip, but the chips were a little chewy - definitely not crunchy. Adequate service. My meal was ok. However, there was a strange smell - not sure if it was a cleaning product, or not. Definitely... More

For selection, price and quality, you can't beat this little place in the Cape! For starters, (pun intended) the chips are homemade and the salsa choices have a heat option for everyone. I had one fish, one tongue, one steak and one barbacoa taco. (What a pig of a woman I am. I know!) The barbacoa (steamed meat) hit it... More

If you are on the North Cape and want some Mexican this is your place. Very clean taste and some really good guacamole... Been there 3 times in the last 2 months. Only 1 time had a small issue and that was very underdone rice. Other than that it has been worth the trip... You won't leave hungry.....

CressChez clan stopped into Tacos El Tequilla for lunch today....YUM! Fun find on Pine Island & Pondella next to Publix. We both had a cold Modelo beer while munching on fresh chips and 3 different types of salsa; chunky medium strength, red spicy and green spicy. Terry opted the Mexican style tacos; 1 chicken, 1 pork and 1 steak. All... More

First time eating here. Chimichanga made up most of the plate. Tender, flavorful chicken with sides of fresh tomatoes, onion, lettuce and rice! Topped with sour cream. Yummy! :) Great prices and clean environment. Festive music playing. Had to get a to go box. Lots of food :)

Four of us had four different meals for lunch. More food than expected on all plates. I had chicken with mole sauce. The sauces and dips are milder than you would expect in a mexicanrestaurant. Perhaps to fit the tastes of elderly clientele. I would have preferred thinner chips but for the price (free), they were great.

Bring your appetite! This restaurant serves a huge array of authentic Mexican food and the servings are large enough that you could share or take some home. The food is excellent, very fresh, terrific price. The atmosphere is casual, you can take your time relaxing in their genuine, large Equipale chairs and you don't feel rushed at all. If you... More

If you are looking for some fresh flavorful Mexican that is fast and cheap this is your place. The service is excellent, cute decor. Very clean and the food is very good. Love their Mexican tacos w onion and cilantro. Their beans are so creamy and wonderful. Perfect place for lunch or dinner on the go. Good for families.
