“Large assortment on the menu”
Reviewed 15 March 2014 via mobile

We have been a couple of times. Last night was the first time in a couple years. The menu hasn't changed much in that time. The menus look tired and well used. We came with 3 other couples so there was eight of us. They waited for all our party to arrive. They brought chips and salsa, the salsa fresh and had a little kick as well. At times they were a little slow when it came time to order as well when you ordered a drink. I had to ask twice for my iced tea and guacamole. The guacamole was fresh, and tasted fine, I have had better and other places but it was still good. The portion size was good, my wife had enough for lunch the next day. Either their business is picking up or people are starting to get out ago after being in the ice box for 2 months. If you like Mexican food this a good place locally to get it.

“Tecalítlan es un Restaurante Magnífico! Vaya! = Go! You will love it!”
Reviewed 7 October 2013 via mobile

Tecalitlan is a really great Mexican restaurant hidden away in a strip mall. It's so worth going because you will be rewarded with sweet service from a caring family that runs the business and a plethora of awesome food. BTW ..they make awesome margaritas and great salsa & chips. Worth finding! Short drive from 39/51.
