Tequila Sunrise Mexican Grille
On Saturday and Sunday nights, a group of wandering mariachi singers pass through this restaurant as you dine. On any night you can enjoy whopping 46-ounce margaritas, Mexican beer and an array of Tex-Mex specialities. Tucked away in a tiny shopping-office strip handsomely landscaped with big oak trees, this small restaurant is loved for its food, camaraderie and modest prices. As for decor, you'll find booths and tables on a covered patio and three other rooms, the back one of which is the most intimate.
We try it for the first time on May 5th 2012. We arrived, took a seat outside, mariachi music, order beverage and food and...a DJ arrived to ruin everything, playing regae, modern latin singers, etc. So for a while we were suffering by hearing both at the same time. I call someone and complained but took out the mariachi music. The food nothing special, the regular menu, boring. Tomato salsa that came with the chips nothing great. Same with the flan. Completely dissapointed for a May 5th celebration (lunch time).
Good seafood, slightly pricey, but the portions are filling. Fresh! Try the crab meat quesadillas. The oyster bisque was not bad, but not a show stopper. I was told the owner gets his crab fresh, flown in from Maryland. Staff is really friendly and cool, and they've got great happy hour specials.
The food is fantastic - enchiladas pacificas (seafood enchiladas) were outstanding - as are the margaritas and the prices. I've been there a half-dozen times: the food has been consistently good; the service has been inconsistent. The prices are very reasonable. The restaurant appears clean and well kept.
This place is the place to go on Tuesdays and Thursdays. That's when their 46 oz. margaritas are only $2.99. Their blue crab dishes are all fantastic and the shrimp is very good as well. Very good food at very reasonable prices.
