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.

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.

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.

Texas Lil's has a country western/sports bar decor. Several rooms are available to eat in and the one with the bar has the majority of TVs. Ample booth and table seating. The furnishings are older but clean. Many framed pictures of Temecula buildings of years...More
