If you’re looking for outstanding Mexican food in Angeles City, Tequila Reef is a must-try. Top notch cleanliness, a fun and perky Mexican atmosphere and upbeat music will immediately set the mood. I dropped in on a not-so-busy evening with a friend after an eventful day and we were not disappointed.
We found the waitresses to be friendly and food service was quick (less than 15 minutes). The menu selection was wide and includes Mexican cuisine, American steaks, burgers and sandwiches, barbeque specialties, seafood, random international favorites and also Filipino dishes. A few Australians were also dining when we arrived, and it looked like they were having a few laughs with several of waitresses.
My girl enjoyed the barbeque ribs and BBQ sauce. I gave one of their “pregnant” burritos a try and wasn’t disappointed either. The portions are huge and plating is very attractive I even took a few pictures before devouring my burrito.
A must-try in this restaurant is their Hand Shaken Margarita, personally shaken to lively music by a waitress before served. The “shake show” definitely adds fun to the dining experience. Also worth mentioning is the fact that the bar has the biggest tequila labels. I guess the restaurant wouldn’t be named Tequila Reef if they didn’t stock up on Patron, Herradura and the rest of the gang.
Also, I heard from a waitress that we just barely missed Tequila Reef’s All You Can Eat Buffet that they hold every month. The buffet serves at least 10 of the restaurant’s most popular dishes plus salads, desserts and more! Buffet costs around $15 US per person, or $20 per couple, and includes 1 free hand shaken margarita. The next scheduled buffet, the Annual American Independence Day Buffet, will be held on the 4th of July from 5pm onwards (Manila time). Booking is required.
To sum it up, Tequila Reef was a pleasurable dining Mexican experience. I enjoyed my Hand Shaken Margarita and was made a happy customer! It’s perfect for friends, dates, even families with children. Highly recommended to anyone, really. I’ll definitely go back!
