Everything about the place is average. Drinks average, prices average for area happy hours, food average at best, service average, cleanliness of place is average, definitely not worth the drive down to this end of town, probably should have went to Irish tavern next door.

We like the queso, guacamole, chips, salsa and of course margaritas. We recommend the spinach/mushroom quesadillas, fajitas, and chimichangas. Call ahead to see what the wait is because it is often crowded. Great place to chill out and have fun.

I will first start off with the negative and finish in a high note. They don't brew their ice tea it comes out of a machine. This may not be a big deal at all to anyone but if you have ice tea and you are a restaurant then take the time and brew it. They also don't have any... More

Seriously, don't order anything else to drink here besides margaritas. I had the house ones and they were the best I have ever had. My friend had some of the more specialty ones, and they were even better. It's hard to put into words how good they are, and strong too. They don't fool around like most restaurants normally do...

I loved my overstuffed burrito. The sauce alone was amazing. There were several extra hot sauces on the table my favorite was the brown one. Can't remember the name but --- amazing. Service was slow. Server did not seem like she could care less about us. Put ice in soda even when asked not to. Forgot extra lime. But the... More

The chunky home made salsa was the highlight of our dinner. Maybe the drinks are memorable -- the food was forgettable. It was a long wait for dinner -- then the service was slow. We came on taco night -- inexpensive tacos -- bland tacos. The menu talks about spicy this and that. Not from what we ate. The "spicy"... More

I'm not usually a fan of Mexican restaurants because of the typical quality, but I do love Mexican food. So I was a little leery when family said they wanted to go to Tequila Mockingbird, but I figured I'd try it with an open mind. I started with the short rib quesadilla, and it was amazing! The meat was cooked... More

This place was recommended and did not disappoint. We were here on a Sunday and sat in the bar area where several football specials were being offered. I would highly recommend the margaritas and the mahi or rockfish tacos. Seafood enchiladas were also delicious. This place seems like a favorite local hangout.

We have been to Tequila Mockingbird many times and it never disappoints us! We love their salsa and always order their queso! Today my husband ordered steak tacos and I had the la casa salad with chicken. Both were great! I love their chipotle ranch dressing! Since we went for a late lunch - we didn't have to wait! But...
