It’s like a tasty walk through Mexico! The food is prepared using only the freshest ingredients, including the best Carne Asada you’ll ever taste. The best cuts of beef are carefully marinated and seasoned with mouthwatering spices, making it melt in your mouth tender. It’s the perfect addition to creating tasty tacos, burritos, fajitas, quesadillas, and more!

Take a look at three house favorites:

Freshly Made Guacamole
One of the stars of the show is their popular signature side dish, freshly made guacamole. A mobile stand rolls right up to your table, and you get to see this house-made green goodness blended with fresh avocados, cilantro, fresh jalapeños, onions, tomatoes, and tangy lime juice right in front of you! It is included with many entrees and can be ordered separately too. Whatever you do, try it…it’s dynamite!

Homemade Corn Tortillas and Tamales
There’s something special about the hot-off-the-grill homemade corn tortillas and tamales that make every dish taste great! Tequila Spice Mexican Grill and Cantina uses traditional authentic recipes passed down through the generations. Each bite is filled with flavor and then some. Try a combination platter to sample as many things as you can!

Authentic Mexican Desserts
Did someone say dessert? How about delicious homemade flan (Mexican custard) or fried ice cream to cool things off? A must-taste for chocoholics is the Chocolate Chimichanga, a decadent chocolate bar rolled in a flour tortilla deep fried and served alongside two scoops of ice cream. Then, it’s topped with chocolate sauce and whipped cream.  Or, the Churros Con Nieve may tickle your sweet tooth. It’s a yummy Mexican pastry filled with strawberry, vanilla, or caramel, all covered with ice cream. We’d call that a very sweet ending!
