    They have a great happy hour! Two for one Margaritas. I love their chips and salsa as well.

    I've been here twice and I was thoroughly satisfied both times. Maybe it doesn't take much to please me, but I really like their food and atmosphere.

    This place is a hidden gem. Located right behind Public Service Credit Union, it's hard to see from 120th. But I'm glad I did see it! We had wonderful service and the food was very, very good. Our server was very attentive and also offered suggestions for our meal. He also took the time to offer things to taste before making a final decision. Other servers on hand helped with clearing our table and refilling our drinks. We never had empty glasses.

    The food came out pretty quickly and the portions were very big. Too big for me to finish.

    Another plus was all the Tv's they had available around the restaurant as there was a Bronco game on the night we went. All in all I'd say it was a great experience. Great food and great service too. We will be back again!

    I've been here many times. The food is always good, the drinks are great, and the service is sufficient. You may not see your server too much, but there is always someone walking around asking if you need anything, so it works out.

    I enjoyed this place. We went around 4:30P, so there was no crowd, and happy hour was still going on. The mariachi band started a 5P, and they were pretty talented and a good set of characters. I enjoyed them throughout our meal.

    I ordered the sabanitas (skirt steak, with bell peppers, cheese, refried beans, and rice). The meal was pretty tasty. The meat was a little tougher than I would have desired, but flavorful to say the least.

    Had a few items from the appetizer sampler, which were also pretty tasty. The food seemed to be pretty authentic and full of flavor. I did not order a drink, but others at the table enjoyed their drinks and the strength of them.

    This place also has a good variety of tequila which you would expect by the name of the establishment. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for some tequila and Mexican food!

    Thornton has a few Mexican places, but few are worth going to, this place however is a true gem and makes exceptional Mexican food from South of the border, none of that New Mexican or Colorado wana be stuff!

    Forget the simple fajitas, go out on a limb and try something new like Carne Asada or they have a great variant covered with peppers, onions and melted cheese that is to die for!
    The portions and plates are huge, you'll go home extremely full and ready to sleep.

    The service is excellent but...

    Revisited with my wife absolutely no alcohol in her drink that she could taste, I tried it if there was it was barely noticeable!

    5 stars down to 4 now!

    LOVE this restaurant!! Amazing margaritas and the best nachos of my life. A great place to have happy hour or dinner, and the staff is awesome.

  • *****

    Love this place. Had to wait a while today, but still great food. Not disappointed. The staff is great, and even though they were busy, took time to meet our needs. I've had several things here that I would recommend. The spinach quesadilla is great. I just had taco soup today and it was great. Please don't be discouraged by long lines, that usually means Great food!!

    Really good dinner after a long day on the mountains. Good margaritas, great food and service.

    I would like to start by saying Tequila's gave us the best dining experience of all time! The food and staff receive the highest praise and marks that I can give them. First I love being able to pick my own dinner combination plate. I chose the grande meal selection and for around 12 bucks my tastebuds delighted on a sopito with shredded chicken (its kind of like a mini mexican pizza), a ground beef burrito, and a shredded beef chimichanga, rice and beans. The platter was huge, and I ate my fill as an early brunch and had leftovers for a late dinner and I still have leftovers! The flavors on every dish were zesty and popped in many layers. My wife had the Mole Pork Shanks. The Pork was fall off the bone tender and the mole was a sweet blend oj chocolatey firey goodness.. We wanted to take a quart home. They have a pico sauce unlike what we have ever experienced it had cabbage, and cilantro in it and the once again the flavors were absolutely amazing! When i eat at a restaurant i don't go in to it to compare it to another. I look at it as does the food taste good and did i receive good service. I look at each of my own dining experiences the first time i have ever eaten this kind if food so i can't tell you if this was"real or authentic mexican food", but I can tell you between the food, the food, the wonderfull friendly staff, and the atmosphere we and our dinner guests had the bestest meal ever. Oh when we were walking out the door two of the wonderful staff handed us beautifull silk roses! Thank you to the staff at Tequila's for the phenomimal dining experience! Very well done and we will be happy to drive 32 miles to experience your your stellar restaurant again!

    Very tasty, flavors fresh and food delivered hot. Our waiter was very attentive and nuce

    Very nice restaurant inside and out. The food was outstanding. The chips came with Salsa AND a cabbage type condiment. I never had anything like that before. I ordered the Chicken Mole and my wife had Chicken Fajitas. The fajitas were cooked perfectly. A lot of places over cook the onions and peppers, but not here. They were perfect. I got the Mole spicy. I never knew it could be that spicy. I will have to have them tone it down a bit next time. My wife said the bathroom was beautiful and super clean. It's not to often I can say that about a restaurant. I'm looking forward to my next visit.

    Excellent food and ambience!! .

  • *****

    Finally found some tacos we can enjoy. Margaritas were amazing. Pricey though. Still yummy

  • *****

    They have a full on band some nights coming through the restaurant. Their margaritas are full fish bowls, and their food is huge portions and still delicious! They deserve having a better Yelp review! I've been looking forward to going here again soon.

    Hello again fellow Yelpers...

    So, if you're ever in the Thornton/North Glenn and you're in the mood for authentic Mexican food you've got to try Tequila's Family Restaurant. A place worthy of five stars. Why, you ask? Great question - a few reasons..

    I'll first start by telling you about the house margaritas. OMG!! They come in small, medium and large sizes. Frozen or on the rocks. I ordered a medium and, well let's just say it was mind numbingly strong and tasty...

    The food was authentic. I ordered the Colorado fajitas and the plate did not disappoint. It came with lots of mushrooms which was a surprisingly nice twist.

    And the atmosphere was great! The bar area proudly shows off hundreds of different tequila bottles.

    I'd go again. As a matter of fact I will since I'm in the area for another three days. You should too.

    The service is excellent and if you are a big tequilla fan, they have a huge wall of it to suit any taste and price range.

    Try it, if you know Real Mexican you will like it!

    Lunch Monday after Super Bowl and staff all wearing Bronco gear. That alone worth an extra star. Food was great and service excellent. Will be back.

  • *****

    About once a week our neighbors and I meet for Mexican. Tequila's is our spot for numerous reasons:

    1. Even with a wait, they're quick to make sure everyone can get a seat! Sometimes we have a margarita while we're waiting- makes time pass faster!

    2. The service is great! Incredibly attentive, knowledgeable, considerate, friendly and quick!

    3. The food is always hot, well seasoned, and never disappoints!

    4. The atmosphere is fun, but not loud!

    We love sitting at the high tops in the bar and on their patio in the summer! Alberto the manager is always warm and welcoming. We look forward to sunny summer days and margaritas on the patio!

    Yesterday I had lunch with a friend at this wonderful restaurant. I had the carnitas. They were very tasty. It came with homemade tortillas and guacamole ,rice and beans. The steak was cook perfectly. They even gave me some honey to finish up my tortillas. The place was very nicely decorated and the staff was very nice. We didn't have to wait to order and our food came out fairly quickly. This is a restaurant that I will definitely be go back to. I have already told my friends and family about this place.

  • *****

    I did not have any appetizers, alcoholic beverages or anything other than their shrimp cocktail. This shrimp cocktail was on point. It is the best one that I've had since moving to Colorado. The shrimp were huge and plentiful... all marinated in a deliciously seasoned concoction laced with avocados/lime and a bomb-ass hot-sauce. Very friendly service. Give this place a shot!

  • *****

    My hubby and I love this place, the seafood is amazing! Plus happy hour, lunch specials and a bonus program. We get free apps with purchase or 50% off coupons all of the time. Great service, beer, margs and taquilla.

  • *****

    I am huge on service, and the two times that I have been here, the server was very fast, highly attentive and kept coming back to check on us. Food was delicious and prices were friendly.

  • *****

    The food was excellent. Staff was attentive and friendly. Most of all thanks for your generosity for paying respects for an officer of the law. That was so kind and we will be back

  • *****

    This place is awesome, we love coming here especially Sundays for Football! they have the NFL ticket and cheap beer if you wear your favorite teams jersey!:) Service is always awesome, and the food is great.

  • *****

    We went there for lunch and had a very pleasant experience. The Chicken Mole was delicious and the service was excellent.

  • *****

    I've been here many times during the week. Service and food have always been great.
    Last night we had 4 beers, 2 margaritas, chorizo queso, and a plate of food. We split a main dish when we go here because the portions are so big. Total was $55.
    I'll keep coming back.

  • *****

    Great food. Great staff. Much bang for the buck! I love this place! The lunch prices cannot be beat. And $4 house margaritas for lunch get the job done. What more can I ask for?

  • *****

    Their shredded beef is delicious and you can't beat their delicious and inexpensive margaritas!

  • *****

    Love the food here! The service has always been great here with amazing staff! I always go with the combination plate with a relleno its delicious! They have a large selection of tequilas. They also have delicious salsa and a cabbage salsa that is to die for!

  • *****

    Excellent food, not so great service. We will come back for the food but the service was lacking. Why seat customers at a table where the server is going on her dinner break?

  • *****

    Have been excited to try the new Tequilas in Thornton. Finally got a chance to tonight. Was not disappointed. Welcoming and friendly environment. Service was good, food was yummy. We really enjoyed the chips salsa and cabbage and the queso with chorizo. Would definitely go there again.

  • *****

    This place is awesome eat here if you want that mexican and they give you alot of food amazing place amazing ....

  • *****

    The best mexican joint in town. From the margaritas to the fesh cooked food, you cannot go wrong at this place. Live music from time to time and a great wait staff..love this place !!!

  • *****

    I checked out this Tequilas location recently, as it had been a vacant building for quite some time. I'd never visited the other locations before, so can't really compare, but it was a good experience overall.

    No excessive wait times, and the jumbo house margaritas packed a good punch, especially with the BOGO coupon I had. Some type of slaw-like salad was served along with the chips and salsa, but it was a bit too heavy on the onion.

    I went with a chicken burrito, which was great. I was really appreciative that pinto beans were available in place of refried beans.

    The menu appeared gigantic - lots of choices.

    The only slightly annoying downfall was that the waiter made use of the word "amigo" in every third word he uttered. Like, amigo, in a really annoying, amigo, kind of way, ya know, amigo?

    I'd definitely go back. If anything, it's the closest Mexican restaurant to my house.

  • *****

    Friendly staff, large portions. Camarones al Diabla is great!!!! Love the Tequila choices too!

  • *****

    Great food. Great drinks. Friendly staff. This place is way better than the other Mexican restaurants around this area. Highly recommended it!

  • *****

    Great new restaurant in Thornton! The staff is really friendly, and they have a bunch of flavored of tequila. We stop by for lunch quite often and its good portions at a fair price.

  • *****

    Great SERVICE, incredible tequila selection. They are truly family oriented. The little one with us received a kiddie pack. Food was really good! Went on a busy Saturday night for dinner with a long line, but we were seated quickly! The service is outstanding - very attentive. TV's all over the place make it a great spot to watch sporting events and have a drink with friends. Incredible tequila selection - Make a great margarita! I recommend the restaurant and will be going back!

    OK, so two 5 star reviews in a row? I know, but the fajitas at this place were awesome. The humongous margarita may have influenced my review, but I don't think so.

    The Colorado fajitas were the bomb! A whole Tilapia filet and 10 jumbo shrimp. And I do mean 3 bite jumbo shrimp. The veggies with the fajitas were well prepared, a nice mixture of sauted peppers, onions and mushrooms.

    Service was quick and courteous, and did I mention the margarita was excellent?

    Service was quick and friendly, restaurant was clean and inviting. Overall a good experience.

    Did I mention that the jumbo margarita was outstanding?

  • *****

    Service:
    Lots of attention. Never had to wait long if I needed something. Very polite and attentive.

    Drinks:
    House Margarita tasted very good, big enough to get a good buzz, but still tastes good.

    Girlfriend got the Diablo Margarita and while I didn't like it, it still had a decent flavor, just not my thing.

    Food:
    Chicken and crispy chili relleno were very good. Chili relleno's are always hit or miss for me but this one hit the mark.

    Price:
    Price is a little higher than some places (10 to 14 for most items), but the menu has a lot of options and you can easily get a meal for under 10 (build your own combos). They also have a nice build your own combo with options for 1, 2 or 3 items.

    Overall very nice, will be coming back.

    The food was fabulous. The service was great. The quantity of food is overwhelming. Not the tex mex we are used to in Dallas. Thoroughly enjoyable.

  • *****

    The food, service, atmosphere, & drinks were great!! We tried this place while we were here for RushFest (soccer camp) with our kids. The service was on point and our table never went without a full glass or full chips and salsa. The food was very good. Being from So Cali we wanted some good Mexican food and found it here. The margaritas were the best according to my wife (Cabo Wabo Margarita). I plan to eat here again before our week is over and we head back to Cali. This place should get 5 stars on every review.

  • *****

    3 Margarita's eat your heart out!

    This place is affordable, fast, friendly and some damn good Mexican food.

    Give the Alambre a shot it is divine!

    Skip three margs, Tequila's all the way baby!

  • *****

    My favorite restaurant, if you're not ordering the Carne Asada you're doing it wrong. The homemade salsa is very good while you wait (for the Carne Asada).

  • *****

    So happy to find good Mexican food in Colorado!!! Just moved from California and after four other places finally found an excellent chili relleno and Cadillac margarita!!! Woohoo!!!

  • *****

    Love this place. It all started at their Arvada location. And now they opened one closer to my house!!!! definitely a place to go for some great Mexican food and some killer house margaritas!

  • *****

    Mexican cuisine is my favorite! This place is delicious!!! The cabbage salsa is yummy ! I had the carne asada plate & it was awesome!

  • *****

    Great authentic mexican. The cabbage salsa is always good and the house margarita is made with lime juice not sweet and sour which is soo much better. The Alambre is our favorite and one order is enough for 2 people.

  • *****

    Great atmosphere, very friendly staff with excellent service. The food is decent with HUGE helpings. (My husband and I always share one dish). The Horchata is AMAZING! Along with the complimentary cabbage and chips! The salsa is great too if you like spicy buts it's a little to spicy for me.
