Great atmosphere; music was our Era & we were probably oldest in the restaurant. Loved the art on the walls. Our waitress maybe with a Canadian accent was very friendly and accommodating. The dip platter was great , the Buffalo wings succulent and the indulgent Margarita shared by all was delicious. I ordered the pork unfortunately so dry & the... More

Awesome Mexican food in a chill environment. Great service and very friendly staff (especially Joe?). Try Thursday tacos but don't miss the beef nachos!!

These guys are amazing. They accommodated a small but slightly raucous group, were happy to put up with our silly games and were super obliging all round. The salsa was hot, the margaritas were cold and delightful, and the smoked jalapeno cheese dip was by far the best thing ever. All round delicious... Every one of the guests said they... More

The staff and atmosphere really make this restaurant a totally fun place to visit, the food is casual Mexican of course and it's excellent!! The beer on tap was a great food match, the shots and cocktails capped the evening off nicely, and if you want to enjoy yourselves this place should delight!

Went for all you can eat tacos and I was SO IMPRESSED! As a vegetarian I never expect too much, but I was so happy when I was offered a different vegetarian taco with each round that came out. They were all delicious and my carnivore friends were in agreement that their fish, chicken, pork, and beef tacos were all... More

Everything about my experience at Tequila Joe's was on point. Delicious food, super friendly staff and a great atmosphere! We went on all you can eat Taco Tuesday and the tacos were so tasty and there was such a variety! Along with the tacos we got fries. These weren't you ordinary fries either, they had this special seasoning on them... More

Always good at Tequila Joe's. All you can eat tostadas on Thursday nights, pork beef and chicken, with a bowl of fries and fresh sauces for the table. The food is always fresh and not too spicy (though easily made hotter if needed). Don't forget to have some quality margaritas on the rocks or great sangria to wash it down.

Tequila Joes is epic! The food is all outrageously good - would particularly recommend the Baja Chicken Quesadilla (got it after asking the people behind us what they were currently eating as it looked too good to miss), and the Cowboy Cowgirl Fries, which are pretty much life changing. Margaritas are great, staff are lovely. It's well worth the walk,... More

Needed something quick before getting on ferry and had heard good things about Tequila Joe's. Was not disappointed just had a platter and cheesy fries but all very good. Even better washed down with a couple of pints. Staff were friendly service was quick. Would highly recommend will return to try more from the menu.

Tequila Joe's Mexican Food and Cocktail Bar. A Great place to see and be seen in Te Aro, the Capital City's Entertainment District. Tequila Joe's is all about fun - not your average dining experience. A great place to gather with friends for hours over cocktail jugs, platters, and mains. Hit the Town for a Dance just 1 block away afterwards.

Our food is Mexican-American Classics, modernly presented using fresh ingredients - and full of flavour. No need for salt, pepper, or dozens of hot sauces. It's ready to go! The food is authentic, with no substitute ingredients used. If you miss the Mexican that you had in America, look no further. We also over BYO Wine on Sat/Sun for dinner guests only.

Probably the best deal in town for throwing a Function! Whether it's a Birthday, 21st, Stag Do, Hen's Party, Engagement Party, Corporate Cocktail Function, or Leaving Party. Our Sound System Cranks, our lights can go way down, and the smoking area out front is very convenient.

Keep on Rockin' in the Free World.
