This is a nice restaurant located on the eastern side of Cortez. It is easy to find and has parking. The food was very delicious, full of SW flavors. It seemed to be popular with the locals which is always a good sign.

We currently live in New Mexico and therefore often eat Mexican. But I have to admit that Tequila's in Cortez, Colorado has the best Mexican food ever! I can not explain exactly why, but we loved it. My husband had fajitas and I had Quesadilla....More

First - if you order margaritas, make sure at least one member of the group is the designated driver. The margaritas are tasty and potent! Our meal was very good (mole something and chicken enchiladas) and we especially enjoyed the chips, salsa, and bean dip....More

Good, fresh salsa. Entrees were good but nothing special. Service was very rushed even though the place was not that busy.

We had a fantastic meal at Tequila's. I'm picky about mole and this was by far the best I've had, even in Mexico. The cabbage salsa is to die for. The waitress was very attentive and personable. The margaritas are great too!
