    Favorite restaurant on Earth. Authentic Mexican and Cajun food in NJ! It's cheap to eat, around $25 per person including drinks. No dessert on the menu except birthday cake because you won't want it.

    This is the best meal there (at least thats my opinion) but the sauce is perfect and they get the type of meat you like very well and it comes with the side of either rice or French fries.

    Great atmosphere. Great food! The Chimichurri Steak is excellent. Swordfish Taco is great. Blackened Chicken Fingers are THE BEST! Sides are great, too (Jambalaya Rice). Great service & reasonable $.

    Margaritas are excellent and not overpriced. The chicken Guadalajara is my favorite but never had a bad experience with anything else on the menu. Been coming here for 20 years and still love it.

    Absolutely the best Mexican food in town. They are always busy and have a giant line but the line moves quick and the food is worth the wait! Grab one of their awesome margaritas too!

    Awesome food, most meals are under $10, you get plenty, enough for leftovers. Sangria is the bomb!! Chips and salsa are fresh, if your lucky your chips will be smoking hot at your table.

    Everything is good, good food and service at reasonable prices. No reservations are accepted and always busy regardless of day and time so be prepared to wait for a table.

    Sad to say the place sucks. Very limited menu, loud, slow and this was 4:30 on a Wednesday. It does a great business and seems a good place to hang at the bar but for dinner it's just not good

    The best authentic Mexican restaurant out there! You have to try their margaritas, guacamole, fajitas and steak. No regrets! Great prices! No deserts tho, but no need for it

    Well known for Cinco De Mayo and margaritas. Their food is delicious especially their enchiladas and fajitas. Tip: Call or reserve a spot bc the place gets packed quickly.

    Been going here since they opened in the 90's. The best fajitas you'll ever have. Don't bother getting them anywhere else. You'll just end up disappointed! (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Chicken guadalahara - absolutely my favorite. And they have an appetizer that we never miss - something flambado. Chorizo maybe. Cheese and fresh soft fluffy tortillas. Mmm.

    It's kind of like Chevy's. Tex-Mex, good margaritas, tasty and fresh tortilla chips. Good vegetarian options on the back of the menu. The empanadas were good.

    Delicious. Portion sizes are ridiculously large for the price, I was not prepared for that and ordered an appetizer and an entrée. Now I have food for a week!

    Better Mexican restaurants in Jersey. Good Swordfish Tacos, yummy Corn & Black Bean Empanadas, & insanely good Margaritas.

    The Tejas Chicken appetizer elevates traditional wings by lightly frying and putting them on skewers - SO, SO, SO good! The chicken burro never disappoints either.

    Apps: Pastelitos, Queso, Blackened Chix Fingers, and Camptown Shrimp. For entree I get blackened chix fajita. Their fries are also pretty good.

    Best cheese quesadillas. Good everything and good prices. However order guacamole with chips bc it's bigger then the side they give you with quesadillas

    Excellent for groups and families. The wait for a table is ridiculous but the frozen margaritas and free chips w salsa help to ease that pain. :-)

    Ignore the tip for frozen sangria, it's tastes like cheap wine. Go for the Gold margarita they use patrons for all their margaritas

    Get the Tejas Chicken app. For main courses get the fish tacos,the shrimp fajitas, and the gaucho chicken. Fresh made chips and salsa is the best! Read more

    If you come to Tejas on a night or weekend, don't come hungry, come "almost hungry". The wait will mitigate your hunger.

    You must get here before 5 at night unless you like loooong waiting. But it's so worth it. Just the tenas chicken alone.

    Don't order at the bar if you already have a table. You will get yelled at. Derek from Adalitas way was scolded by the bar tender.

    The few vegetarian options aren't flexible. However the margaritas and chips/salsa make up for everything

    You HAVE to get the margarita. But be prepared for the long wait. Head to the bar for a drink to kill the time.

    Good food, but they are getting silly with the rules. We wanted to take some dip home but they don't allow getting something extra to take home any longer.
