Tequila's is located right on the river with a view of the hot springs across the way. The service was OK, nothing great but nothing horrible either. I thought the salsa was really good, and the food was good as well. I thought that it was a little pricey for what they serve. However, I would recommend it because it... More

This is the best location in town, worst food and service! I would recommend only for view and outside dining.

From the second I walked in the door we were treated terrible. Once we finally got someone to actually come over and take our order two waiter's argued over who wasn't going to take our order and they both walked away like little kids. We waited five more minutes for someone to come over and take our order. Food was... More

Not a bad place to stop for a bit to eat. The food is decent, but the prices are rather high compared to other Mexican restaurants. The staff is rather friendly though.

We were all pleased with our food, and service was prompt and friendly. Good chips and salsa, and the chicken enchiladas were great!

After going to the "local" hippie hot springs spot we needed some energy! Had a couple of brews and lunch combo choices for lunch. Terrific to sit on patio and watch the river flow by and the relaxing view of the spa hotel. Food was average..service was good.

Had lunch there several years ago and we drove from Durango just to have lunch there again. If you are seated by the windows, you have a wonderful view of the Pagosa Hot Springs and the river. Great food - very TEX MEX which is our favorite. I agree with another reviewer that the décor is "Cheezy" but it just... More

This is a tourist trap with overpriced food amd mediocre drinks. Really too bad as it sits atop an amazing spot overlooking the river and springs. Skip it if you can, if you must go, maybe an app and a beer just for the great views.

Can't go wrong eating at Tequila's...it is always good. Service is great and the view of the Spring's Resort and the River is fantastic, especially in the summer and eating outside.
