We stopped in to Tequila Tony's for lunch while we were in Odessa because it had been recommended to us as being a fairly decent place to eat. They had also said that it could be very pricy, so I was expecting a high bill at the end of it all. The chips and salsa were great, we ordered the... More

My go-to dishes are the shredded beef tacos or the carne guisada. I also like the fajita which come out on a hot plate. The large queso is great for a large party and it comes with fresh tortilla chips. Lemonade is fresh, sweet tea is excellent.

Not only hot and made to order, but absolutely delish! Washed down with a Tecate in a frosted glass doesn't get much better. So why not a 5! The order was confused bringing the wonderful Mexican shrimp cocktail and lengua burrito (which was specially and deliciously made by the chef) instead of the menudo. Most likely due to the "fast"!... More

So after reading many positive reviews of this place by locals online, i decided to try it for lunch today. I sat at the bar and it was dirty/sticky. Mexican food is one of my favorites and a good margarita is hard to beat. Surprisingly, they only had one type of margarita so i went with it. Bad decision. It... More

I have been coming to this place for years. Chips and salsa are great. Wife and I usually have enchiladas, daughter has a combo burrito smothered in queso. Service is hit or miss but most of the time not bad. Has been getting better lately. Not a quiet place but good atmosphere for casual dining.

I could write a book on the quality of their mixed drinks. This would make an excellent bar, but the Mexican food borders on really strange to me. It is a twist on traditional Mexican food that Just left my tastebuds thinking wth??? On another note... Don't expect a quiet dinner here...it's a hangout for drinkers and socializing.

Very good, consistent food. From bar selection, to fresh squeezed lemonade, to sweet tea, the drinks are a good start to the complimentary chips and salsa that start your meal. You can opt for Queso (at a cost), I'd suggest getting a small bowl unless you have a large group. They have seafood, fajitas, enchilada plates, and combo platters. I... More

Tried several Mexican Seafood places. This one is the best in town. Traditional food, good staff and dedicated family ownership. Good family place to eat. The Brit!
