TEQUILA CHITO’S MEXICAN BAR & GRILL
Tequila Chito’s, born with the name of Tequila’s Bar & Grill, was first located at 245 W. 14th St. It became famous for its rich Mexican food and friendly atmosphere, and was there for 22 years, serving the community. Then we moved to where we are today—and with our same philosophy of serving our clients Mexican food of the highest possible taste and quality.
We are a family-owned Mexican restaurant rich in history and flavor. All meals are prepared the old-fashioned way, with an emphasis on fresh ingredients and authenticity. We celebrate parties (birthdays, christenings, anniversaries, baby showers, graduations and more), and offer a buffet or a special menu, according to your needs.
