Meals commence with one of Senor Tequila's zesty appetizers, such as four flautas topped with sour cream and guacamole and filled with a choice of chicken or beef ($5.95) or deep-fried taquitos Mexicanos stuffed with seasoned chicken ($5.95). A house specialty, the El Amigo ($14.95) invites diners to show off their culinary creativity by rolling up grilled steak, chicken, mexican sausage, and shrimp into flour tortillas to make tacos or avant garde paintbrushes.

With more than 20 combination plates, diners can pick and choose their favorites to eat or cast in a literal interpretation of Shakespeare's As You Like It. Lunchtime unveils its own tasteful showcase with dishes such as pollo a la chipotle—grilled chicken strips slathered in a tangy chipotle sauce and flanked by rice, refried beans, and three flour tortillas ($7.50).
The chefs at Senor Tequilas pay homage to traditional Mexican fare, crafting satisfying dishes such as mole-topped chicken enchiladas and crispy chimichangas.

Staffers deliver lunch plates filled with the likes of pollo a la chipotle, which features grilled chicken simmered in a piquant chipotle sauce. The menu also offers more than 20 combination platters for diners who prefer to sample several items or test whether or not a taco will fit inside a chile relleno.
