We come here all the time! Great Mexican food. Chicken nachos is great, chicken on the beach is great, fajitas are great... staff is not the friendliest but not the rudest either. Usually pretty fast service too.

Every person, with the exception of the young man with horned rimmed glasses who served us chips and salsa, was extremely rude. I'm not exaggerating...From the man who seated us, to the waitress who acted like we were disturbing her day, to the lady that took our money checking out....EVERYONE was rude. I don't care how good your food is,... More

Great Mexican restaurant. ... it is the place to go for a family, sit down dinner. Service is speedy They quickly push together tables for larger parties. You barely sit down before the complementary chips and salsa arrive. I recommend the enchiladas, tacos, or burritos. They also have American food items such as hot dogs and hamburgers for the limited... More

This place offers the best Mexican food around this small, rural area for fairly cheap prices! It's definitely my favorite restaurant around!

It's exactly what you'd expect in a Mexican Restaurant. Good food prepared quickly. It's a good place to go to grab a margarita and a plate of chicken on the beach

Awesome place to get real Mexican food without breaking the bank. You have to try their taco salad. I usually spend $6 including my drink and I can't eat all of it. They give you plenty to eat.

Fair service. Prices on menu are slightly higher than other similar Mexican restaurants around here. Quality of food is low. Anytime I've ate at Tequilas my food is almost always cold. Infact I will not eat at Tequilas unless I get drug there by a friend. If you want good Mexican food go to Princeton and eat at El Rodeo... More
