When we want traditional Mexican food this is the place. For dessert you will not find a better piece of cheesecake in Minnesota. The owners are terrific.

My family eats here a lot! We are a large family of 13. We usually come for birthday's or celebration. Food is excellent and so is the service. One of the problems with all of us coming in is space. Not much space for such a large group. We usually call in ahead of time.

Mentioned to our server that we had a concert to get to & he assured us he'd do what he could to get us served & on our way. We enjoyed delicious chips & meals. The friendly, hard-working staff also... More

I now live in New Jersey, land of every kind of great restaurant you can imagine. When I go back to Minnesota to visit, I always eat at El Tequila more than once. I often... More

We ate dinner here last week and the waitress was very nice but she did not understand enough of the language to make our meal good. I have a dairy allergy and we ended up with some food we could not eat and we could not get it across to the waitress. Also, they have a big new vegetarian section... More

I've been familiar with El Tequila my whole life. If any member of my family is visiting Southern Minnesota they ALWAYS visit El Tequila multiple times. My wife and I have moved away from the area, but we must've eaten there at least 4 times the month before left. It's that good. Here's a breakdown: 1. The food is phenomenal.... More

I went here last week with a large work group. They sat us in the "back" for more privacy, which I found thoughtful. The place is colorful & festive. The food was delicious! I had the chimichanga lunch special & it was very filling & tasty. The chips & salsa were good too! The service was a little slow, but... More

We love that El Tequila has draft beer always more for your money. Their salsa is very good. Our service has always been excellent. We are early eaters we dine about 5:30 p.m. The husband has never been disappointed in their relleno's (sp) . Although we have ordered other things and have never been disappointed I really like their trio... More
