I had lunch here with a couple of friends. Everyone really enjoyed their meals. They have very good lunch specials which are reasonably priced. This is generally a pretty busy place but they have very good service.

The food at El Tequila is the best! Simply put, I have yet to find any mexican restaurant that compares. They have a wide variety of dishes in their menu and they all have a unique and authentic flavor. The service is beyond friendly, they make you feel like family. And the service is amazingly fast. This is a must... More

We tried Grand Plaza down town and was not very impressed, so we decided to give El Tequila a try. Place was typical Mexican decor, but was clean. Food was excellent and have actually been back a couple times. Give it a try.

Excellent food. 10% takeout discount for seniors. Google map on the phone was not accurate (located it very near Taco Bell - haha!). It can be hard to find coming from the north. It's on the east side of the road, 1/2 mile south of a Mobil station. Worth a few u-turns til you spot it.

We made a reservation for 12 and it was ready. The complimentary chips and salsa are yummy. Food was plentiful and very tasty.
