Always good authentic Mexican food. One of the best in the town. I like to get the Alhambres with shrimp and chorizo. Yum! They make their own chips and probably their own tortillas. Good salsas too. Always clean inside.

We stopped in here for Sunday lunch. The first good sign was the number of Hispanic families that were dining. Service was prompt and friendly. The chips were very good, and they brought a selection of three salsa: Mild, Hot, and Green. My wife had the Chicago-style Burrito with chicken, and it covered the whole plate. I had the Chile...

I know i am an American that is quite used to making tacos at home with el paso or some other boxed taco kits but the meat was absolutely horrible. It looked like Purina and smelled worse. I was hungry so I ordered some many and took one bite and that was enough for me...yuck

Why on earth would anyone go anywhere else besides here and Two Amigos? Everything is fresh. They do not serve Cisco Guacamole. The salsa is delicious. And we have yet to have a bad meal here. Being in a shopping center and getting ***** Star Food is part of the charm. After all, is an enchilada going to take better... More

I was a little leery of this small place in a grocery store strip mall. There were three different salsas - one was quite zip, but the chips were a little chewy - definitely not crunchy. Adequate service. My meal was ok. However, there was a strange smell - not sure if it was a cleaning product, or not. Definitely... More

For selection, price and quality, you can't beat this little place in the Cape! For starters, (pun intended) the chips are homemade and the salsa choices have a heat option for everyone. I had one fish, one tongue, one steak and one barbacoa taco. (What a pig of a woman I am. I know!) The barbacoa (steamed meat) hit it... More

If you are on the North Cape and want some Mexican this is your place. Very clean taste and some really good guacamole... Been there 3 times in the last 2 months. Only 1 time had a small issue and that was very underdone rice. Other than that it has been worth the trip... You won't leave hungry.....

CressChez clan stopped into Tacos El Tequilla for lunch today....YUM! Fun find on Pine Island & Pondella next to Publix. We both had a cold Modelo beer while munching on fresh chips and 3 different types of salsa; chunky medium strength, red spicy and green spicy. Terry opted the Mexican style tacos; 1 chicken, 1 pork and 1 steak. All... More
