Tequila Grill Redux Redux

Update: This restaurant has closed

Last week our friends Arthur and Eddie suggested that we go out to dinner at Tequila Grill before the kids headed to a show at the library. I’m always in the mood for not cooking (well, that’s not really true, but I thought it sounded cute), so I thought it was a splendid idea. Well, perhaps not splendid as I haven’t been impressed with Tequila Grill in the past, but it’s nice to get out. And alas, it’s good I have that attitude because Tequila Grill failed to impress me yet again.

I had the milanesa sandwich, and the milanesa was nice and tender but not very flavorful. There was also too little meat to bread ratio. The fries it came with were perfectly fine.

I also ordered some guacamole and I did like it a lot, it was fresh and well balanced. Alas – there were no chips to eat it with (I did ask for them, they just never came). I found out that french fries with guacamole sort of work.

Mike had the flautas and he thought they were just OK.

I didn’t ask Arthur and Eddie what they thought of their dishes, but Elektra – who’d come with us along with her kids Orestes and Aegea, didn’t seem very impressed with whatever she ordered. Orestes’ actually found his burrito nauseating, though he couldn’t quite figure out why.

The younger kids seemed fine with their quesadillas (I didn’t try them).

So no, I won’t be rushing back to Tequila Grill, though I imagine I’ll end up there again some time.

    We went again to Tequila Grill Friday night (2/09). It’s a favorite place of one of our friends, so we’ve been there a couple of times since my last review.
    My opinion of the place hasn’t changed – I think it’s mediocre. Once again I had the guacamole (good, well size portion) and the milanesa sandwich (very thin slice of milanesa). Mike had the regular burrito and he thought it was mediocre as well. Our friends, on the other hand, really enjoyed their food (I don’t know what they got), so it may be a matter of differing tastes.
    I did like the chips this time, nice and crispy and the salsa wasn’t bad either.
