Flavors of mexico


Tradition is a big thing in Texas,  with flavors and recipes being passed on from generation to generation.

It’s in that vein that Tequila Bar Y Grill, 2150 Tin Top Rd. was opened back in November. While the restaurant prides itself in being more a of a traditional Mexican/Latin restaurant instead of the popular Tex-Mex genre, General Manager Sylvia Elvira says Tequila has a little something for everyone.

“We try to be different and use the flavors of Central Mexico as opposed to Tex-Mex,” Elvira said. “For those that like Tex-Mex, we still offer enchiladas, chimichangas, nachos and tacos al carbon.”

She admits that some of the new customers haven’t been content with the new menu. She has asked them to come back for another try and tells them they will be hooked ... and they have been.

“Our customer base has been very good with about 90 percent of our customers liking the experience and the fact that there’s something in this building after so many years,” Elvira said. “We’ve had a lot of people trying out different things. If they don’t like it, we ask them to come back another time and try something else. We’re always willing to accommodate everyone when we can.”

The building Tequila sits in has been vacant for about seven or eight years and was formerly a Denny’s and a Dixie House diner. Weatherford residents and business owners Dolores and Julie Savage, the latter having lived in Mexico for 14 years, were the brain trust of wanting to bring the flavors of Mexico to town.

With the prime location just off I-20 it took some time to get the facility the way everyone wanted it. Renovations began in June with the addition of a bar, which features 19 different type of tequilas, and a new patio area, which will be heated with air conditioning and misters expected to be added as the weather warms up.
