We had margaritas that were OK, they could have used a bit more tequila but that is our preference. The meal was plentiful - lunchmate had the wing appetizer while I had a chicken melt.

Great having you dine with us. Our Margarita was Voted Best In Town. Come give it another try soon. Cheers!

Just stopped in for some drinks and snacks. Ordered up some Margaritas, couple of shots and a martini. We all shared some Nochos and bone in chicken wings. Everything was good and service very friendly.

Went during happy hour and enjoy $5 apps. They were huge! Riblets were especially tasty. Great selection of craft beers and domestics.

So glad you enjoyed our Happy Hour $5 Drink & Large Appetizer Specials. We've been known for the Best Darn Happy Hour in Old Town Temecula for this very reason. Cheers!

Food and service were good but the quality of this restaurant seems to have declined over the past couple of years while the prices have increased. This used to be one of my favorite places but it's very likely that this was my last visit.More

Texas Lil's has great BBQ and you can take the pups there too:} I especially like the buffalo burgers, which not very many places have. The food is served in ample portions with lots of sides to choose from. Highly recommend it.
