El Tequila is a hidden gem of a Mexican restaurant in Baxter, and it seemed to hide from us the first couple of years after we moved to the Brainerd Lakes Area. I have sampled most of the menu and quite of few of the beverages. They have a great margarita whether you drink them on the rocks or blended. They also have quite a few speicals, and one of the last times we went on a weeknight, we enjoyed one dollar cans of ice cold Tecate with limes.
I have to share my preference to their combination plates, but I have also been known to venture outside the box and have a Molcajete which is a feast fit for royalty.
The quality of their food is great and the prices are reasonable. None of the food on the menu is expensive, and the authentic music and colorful decor make any visit to this place a great and unique experience.
Tonight, I had the #53 combination platter: one taco, one enchilada, and the prince of the plate was the Chile Relleno. The portions are large and the service is impeccable. I would recommend this place as a great Sunday stop after spending the weekend enjoying the lakes or to cure the weekend's hangover. Please add your take on El Tequila to the comments.
