I last reviewed this location 2 years ago but my opinion of this restaurant has not changed. The food is terrific. We did notice that they had updated their menu and a couple of items that we had previously had were no longer offer. We had inquired about a particular dish that my husband enjoys and when the waitress told... More

Took my brother in law here for Mexican. It was yummy. The service was very good and the food was tasty and hot. The salsa however is just too hot for me to enjoy. Wish they had a slightly wimpier version. Otherwise it was great. Don't let the outside fool you. It looks like an old gas station turned into... More

We've eaten here several times and have ALWAYS had a good experience. Service is friendly and professional. They cook the food to order-it is not just sitting in the kitchen waiting to be reheated. While waiting for the entrees we enjoyed the chips and salsa. The salsa is definitely made fresh daily and I think they make their own chips... More

We had returned from a cruise and were looking for some good mexican. Wife and I enjoyed the food, it wasn't spectacular but very good. I had the torta and it was excellent, we don't have any items like that where we're from at a mexican restaurant and I really enjoyed it. The tacos were also excellent.

A friend and I had lunch at El Tequila yesterday. The food was OK. I tried a combination plate of standard fare with enchilada, taco and chile relleno. The food was OK,, but I have had better. It seemed bland and under spiced.. The price was certainly reasonable for the amount of food and the service was very good.

This is my new favorite Mexican restaurant! The gorditas are amazing. Everything we tried, soft tacos, sopes, horchata, etc. was obviously made from scratch and authentic. I want to go back right now!

I had the chicken fajitas. The chicken was cooked separately from the peppers and onions and then dumped on them. Over salty and no other flavor. Rice was tasteless. Beans weren't too bad. Flour tortillas were OK. Wife had chicken taco salad. Said it was just lettuce and chicken (with bones) and no sauce. Salsa was bland and tasted like... More

This gem is in a strip mall on Harbor City Boulevard near Del's Freeze. It seems to be family owned and operated. Menu is large enough to have something for every one. All the food is made to order and the staff are more than happy to adjust to suit. On arrival they have the expected chips and salsa. The... More

So fresh, delicious and cheap! And the perfect location next to Del's Freeze...a little cool to tame the heat! Not your everyday Mexican, in a good way!

Party of 6 and we had a great time. Food was not only authentic, but oh my god tasty. You do not leave there feeling hungry or disappointed. First time we had been there (including my son & family who live in the area) and we will definitely go back again. Great atmosphere and clean, even the bathrooms!!!
