So.....had dinner here at the Tequila Grill last night and wanted to reflect on our experience. Let me first explain that I am a local gal married to a local guy and we like to support small businesses in our area. During the 3 month...COVID lockdown we ordered takeout from many area eateries ( including this one) and always left a 30-40% tip to help the staff as I spent 20 years in the Food & Beverage industry. We sat at the bar and were greeted by the bartender and asked for drink order. My husband is a beer only kind of guy and I’m a liquor girl all the way. I requested a Cadillac Margarita as advertised on their menu and the bartender left to prepare our drinks (I assumed). Within a few minutes another gentleman approached us and asked for our drink order. When I explained we had already done so with another bartender he proceeded to tell me if I wanted the Cadillac Margarita as requested it would cost &12.99 instead of the advertised price on menu of $8.25 due to the Grand Marnier included in the drink. The menu CLEARLY states it is prepared with Grand Marnier and not the knock of generic orange liquor he wanted to give me at menu price. I asked his reasoning for this absurd price hike and he stated it was due to the shutdown during COVID and the price of meat going up. Now, I buy Grand Marnier all the time and I can tell you it is the same price today as it was 5 months ago which is why I’m trying to wrap my head around a price change to 1 alcoholic drink and none to the food. He continued to try and convince me the taste was no different from the knock off to the real thing and I proceeded to explain that was not the case and declined the drink. Now, we could have gotten up and left or I could have ordered ice water as to not contribute to the bar till that evening but I instead requested a Corona and we stayed for dinner with only having 3 beers apiece. Had I been able to order as originally requested I would have had at least 3 margaritas which at $8.25 each pays for a 375 ml bottle of Grand Marnier. Some may say I’m being petty and that’s okay I merely say I want what I want. I suppose I could dig deeper and I say I’m offended by the fact they did not social distance ANY table or barstool as EVERY seat was available to sit in. I could be petty and say the manager who tried to up-charge me never once had a mask on as he served food and interacted with guests the entire time we were there. I could be fussy and report there was so little protein on my Texas Nachos it wasn’t worth half of what I was charged. I could be nitpicking when I report I was charged $1.50 for jalapeños and that my request for no sour cream was disregarded and they put it on anyway. However let me be precise when I say I will never drive the 2 minutes from East Pea Ridge to dine at this restaurant again.More
Went there on a Friday night at around 530 they were extremely busy and they had a Marazzi band playing which to me is kind of aggravating because you can’t have a conversation with the people you were sitting with. However the food was very...good we went out with friends and family and there was about seven of us everyone got something different I would recommend this place anytimeMore
We've been to this restaurant several times. Service is quick and food is good. There are some language barriers but it all works out ok. I feel this restaurant is a little pricy compared to similar Mexican food restaurants in area.
Best food, service and location in the area! The owners and staff are all like family. We frequent there multiple times during the week. The portions are fabulous, fresh and always delicious!! We have been there till closing and love the attention to detail the...entire staff takes to clean everything! We bring all our friends and family here.More
First time visiting. Larger menus than most Mexican restaurants. Service was prompt. Food prep was quick. Prices were avg to above avg. service was ok. Food was good. Staff sat in booth while not helping guests. I’ll try a different option best time. Not bad,...just won’t be on my list of return locations.More
We are locals and like to support local businesses, including restaurants. There are several Mexican Restaurants in the area, but this one is our favorite. The servers work as a platoon. You’re not stuck waiting for your one server to refill your drink. Someone is...always on the move filling glasses and offering assistance. The restaurant is comfortable with an acceptable noise level. I hate shouting across the table to have a conversation. That’s not the case here. They have a large menu with plenty of options. The food is always well prepared and delicious. If your tastebuds are hankering Mexican Cuisine, this is the place for you. You won’t be disappointed.More
