We were out of town on vacation, and for our daughter's 16th birthday we decided to get Mexican. The service was awesome and the food was INCREDIBLE! The prices were so affordable that our family of 7 ate for under $70. The icing on top was their fantastic birthday song. We will remember this visit for a long time.

I had shrimp enchiladas. They were very good, but I have to say that the service was absolutely great. The owner/manager also came by to see how the experience was. I would highly recommend this location. Great food, great service.

We walked to the restaurant from our hotel when there were few patrons. Wow what a wonderful surprise to find their Mexican food is so good! I liked it so well that I went back and bought 15 quesadillas (5 cheese/chicken/beef) to take to my family reunion. They gave me a little break on the cost, and portions were so... More

We took a group from church. The food was great and the service was better. I highly recommend El Tequila for small groups, or larger events.

This is one of our favorite places in the Brainerd area. Great food and service. They have a very interesting, sort of festive, decor.

I was a little disappointed with the margarita it was too sweet. But the chile relano made me sweat and brought tears to my eyes, something that never happens in Minnesota. It had bite or I have been in MN too long and lost my tolerance for heat!

Food was average, similar to most chain Mexican despite supposed to be more traditional. Server did not speak good English.
