I stopped in after my average long business travel work day which included lots of driving. This was a treat to say the least. Everything is authentic about this place: the history of the building (the bartender will tell you about it 😁), the genuine staff, the drinks, and the food. The food is original and high quality. This is... More

Ambience was nice, great for a special occasion. Empanadas were good. Guacamole was yummy. For main dish I ordered the fish with garlic which was good but nothing extraordinarily and definitely not worth the price. Now, we were going to order Cebiche and requested it with fish only but the waiter told us the of mix of fish and shrimp... More

This was my second time to Tequila and I will be back a third. Everyone enjoyed their meals. The empanada were very good. Others found the Civiche delicious and the Caesar Salad was a very generous portion. The beef and fish entrees were excellent and nicely spiced. Presentation was attractive and service was attentive.

We chose Tequilas because we were going to a concert playing Mexican and we wanted to get in the mood. The drinks and food was delicious and the service was very good and friendly. Did you know that the Caesar salad originated in Mexico? Yes and my friends totally enjoyed their Mexican salad where the lettuce is served in whole... More

Happy hour begins at 2pm at the bar where one can enjoy small plates & half price margaritas that are strong & yummy. Fundido is hot, delicious, satisfying. Oscar, Dino, Victor and the whole crew are always on their game and make the experience enjoyable. Three tacos are plentiful, awesome, very fresh. Their chips are the best!

We went there for a quick bite during happy hour , we orderd the beef tacos, empanadas and the nachos. The meat was seasoned to perfection, the nachos were the Best that we ever had and the happy hour long island ice tea and sangria were also great.

Went to celebrate my daughter's birthday for lunch yesterday. I originally made reservations for 4 but changed to 5 last minute and was accommodated quickly. Place was very beautiful, (one of the reasons why we chose this restaurant in the first place is the curiosity to see the art work and chandelier). Food was seasoned perfectly and very good. Will...

A few of my friends and I (6 people) went to Tequilas Friday night to celebrate my birthday and another friend's birthday. We were seated right away and served water almost immediately. We all ordered margaritas, and thought they were wonderful. I had the Margartia Roja, which was a good blend of sweetness and tequila. We had one vegan guest... More
