Tequila Grande

Before watching a Lacrosse Game for the first time ever (wooooo...) my friend Rosie and I decided to meet up for dinner before hand (my requirement for going to a game) and we decided on Tequila Grande. I thought margaritas would be necesary before watching.
I got there really early so I kept myself busy with their happy or "power" hour menu.
I got a $4 Original Margarita on the rocks. It was pretty good and it packed a punch. By the time I finished it I was feeling it.
On the power hour menu, you are eligible for $1 taco each drink you get, so I got one with shredded beef. The beef was pretty good, but other then that I literally felt like I just went to Giant and bought a pack of hard tacos, added some meat and threw some cheese on top.
The Chips and Salsa were decent. Nothing spectacular.
After Rosie arrived we split an order of Guacamole $5.95. It was pretty fresh tasting although it was super smooth and blended, did not have the chunky fresh made texture to it.
I ordered the Small Steak Quesadilla $7.95.  This was a good sized quesadilla and I was happy with my order. By this time I was so stuffed I ended up taking it to go to give it to my friend who coached the lax team.
Rosie got a Salad $9.95 with chicken and no dressing. She enjoyed her salad and was impressed that the meat was cooked well (not dry at all).
I almost forgot the best part, the Mango Margarita $6.95 (alright maybe not the best, but pretty darn tasty) It had a very prominent mango flavor, no fake/artificial taste.
This place was pretty good, I thoroughly enjoyed my meal, but the service was ok. This place does not seem fit to handle a crowd, so if you go, I would go during a non peak time. I ordered a burger to go for my friend coaching the lax team, and it took probably about 20-30 minutes to receive and we could barely flag down the waiter for anything.

  1. This one sounds like it had some good with the bad, but as many tex mex restaurants that are around here, I would not be going back. There is too many in the metroplex to have to put up with any bad. However, I am glad you and Rosie had a get together which sometimes good company makes up for the bad aspects. Thanks for sharing your lunchtime outing.

  2. Okay.. I think I need that mango margarita now!! Drop by my blog today and collect a versatile blogger award!! You deserve it. :)
