Traditional Mexican food, delicious and HUGE margaritas, chips and salsa served by the nicest people keep me coming back to Tequila's. Any time I'm asked where I'd like to eat a meal out, I choose Tequila's. They also have another location in North Tampa that I'm dying to try.

I had pollo en adobo and it wasn't too bad, but wasn't great either. It was a piece of chicken breast over some grilled onions with some rice and a not very fresh salad on the side with beans puré. The price was very cheap. Good service

We were in the mood for a taco and margarita and wandered in here, what a mistake! The bartender took our order after the waiter didn't understand what we asked for (it WAS Taco Tuesday) and he came back with something that tasted like mop water if I could imagine what that could taste like! It wasn't a margarita like... More

Our team came in here in less than poor spirits and energy, we were delighted once we were greeted by our server Zach. He was not phased by our dreary faces or demeanor and cheerfully answered all of our questions, laughed at our bad jokes and even brought us samples of one of the sauces we wanted to try. He...

Don't let the location or the look of this building stop you from eating here. It's a little rough looking but otherwise, it's really fantastic! Hunny and myself stopped in here on a whim while staying in Clearwater beach. The service was a little slow because they were understaffed but everyone was so very pleasant. They have a nice patio...

This is in a strange location so unless you are driving by you probably wouldn't stop.. but if you go you will love it! It is very authentic! Great menu and margaritas! The service is quick and pleasant... they have a nice patio as well if you wanted to sit outside.. really great Mexican food!

We had tacos and fajitas. I thought everything was quite bland in flavor. The salsa was good, so we added that to everything for more of a kick. The server was friendly and the service was quick once we were seated and we got most of our food and drinks quickly. However, our server sort of disappeared after that and... More

Stopped for dinner before son's game. Staff was friendly. Got our food very quickly and it was pretty tasty - not great but not bad at all. My wife's chimichanga plate was big enough to share with our daughter. I wasn't very hungry so went with a taco salad with chicken and was very happy with it. Nothing fancy, just... More

We had made the comment how we haven't really seen any Mexican restaurants in the area. We found this place and oh my!! We feel like we're in Mexico and the food was absolutely delicious!! We were greeted with 2 for 1 jumbo margaritas which is an absolute steal. Staff was very prompt and friendly. My husband got the fish... More
