its been said before in many reviews on other boards , the food is about as authentic mexican as i am authentic bangladeshi.

 

the restaurant has a nice feel to it , the decor gives it a nice mexican setting , then the food takes that away.

 

sometimes the service can be very slow too , but it may be what some guys are used to when eating mexican in their own areas , it just doesnt compare in the slightest with the good mexican food i love so much.

 

ive actually been searching pattaya and jomtien for a good mexican food joint , turns out the best by a country mile is sold by big al from a stall , so why cant restaurants with big kitchens deliver what this guy can from a small street cart.

Have to agree with Mulphy.

Some friends and I ate there last November. I'm by no means an expert, but I am from an area overran with Mexican restaurants, as is one other member of our dinner group that evening, so I think we can both say, with some confidence, we know good Mexican food when we taste it. Unfortunately, Tequila Reef was not a positive experience.

I am certainly no expert re Mexican food. But I do like my ribs and IMO the Tequila Reef has the best ribs and chicken in Pattaya.And also the best frozen margaritas.It is my equal most favourite restaurant in Pattaya along with Yamatos Japanese.

If you believe the Tequila Reef has the best chicken and ribs in pattaya then you must not get out much.

 

The best chicken and ribs is at The Great American Rib Company in Theppassit road in Jomtien .

 

Please try it and im sure you will agree and that my friends is THE TRUTH .

THIS ACCOUNT WAS BANNED AS IT WAS FOUND TO BE MULPHY'S SECOND ACCOUNT

I ate there last week & will agree the food was very good.

 

What spoiled it though was the bill

 

17% on top ( 10% service + 7% VAT )

That did not go down to well !!

 

Why do restaurants do that ?

 

You go to these places thinking

" I dont care if its a bit pricey, I just want a quality meal "

Then that happens & it just winds you up.

 

Out of principle I wont be going there again

I didnt make myself clear.

I was talking about The American Rib Company.

 

I have been to Tequila Reef a few times & the food has been very good.

Also the Margeritas where great !

I fully agree mate, a fucking rip-off. There seems to be more and more places in town now doing this. When most people if, given good service, will leave a tip for the staff. I think it is bad for them to add that to the bill AND STILL EXPECT you to leave something on the plate !!!!!! Often the last 100 Baht is split into 20's and 10 Baht coins. It is very much a Septic thing this tipping business, most all of the rest of the world tip when given good service, that is something which very rarely happens in Thailand wherever you eat ( a few of the upper end nosheries exempted ).

I will, and do, tip when i am looked after, but i am fucked if i will tip when given very poor service and/or shite food. I do not like being told that i WILL give 10% regardless. ( i have seen 15% added plus 7% )

I have eaten there 2x, first time was very very average taste wise, plus the air con was dripping on our table, and the staff seemed bothered by the fact that we asked to be moved to another table.

 

The 2nd time I visted was the last, as the food was even worse.

 

Only positive aspect of that dive is that fact it is a great place to people watch up and down the soi

Tequila Reef has the best ribs in town. Even beats my favorite BBQ place (Bob's BBQ). However, I do not like their mexican food. Best mexican is the Blue Parrot in Pattaya land or Big Al's small cart in front of Atlantic Bar.

I had the misfortune of eating at Tequila Reef 3 weeks ago. I had the chilli burrito and spent most of the next 12 hours being sick. Yes, it was the burrito since I had eaten nothing that day.

 

This was my fourth time there and I won't be back. Each time was progressively worse.

I like this place. The big portions kill me as its hard to do a bar crawl after eating one of these meals. Last time I went in I thought I would just order a couple of beef tacos thinking they were small like something from Taco Bell USA. But when they arrived they were huge and stuffed with steak. So much good food in pattaya.

It's interesting to note that Tequila Reef was started by the guy who is now the head chef at Great American Rib. ++ sucks - but you get it at all the chains (not Sizzler) & big hotels.

 

GAR is good food & expensive. They have nice apple pie or cheesecake too.

went there one time, knew the owner from when he would hang out at the Alamo on soi 8 recruiting customers for his place. I asked for a beer chang and the owner smugly said "oh we dont serve that beer here" kinda put me off as it happens to be the beer i like. Also Vat is added to the bill so you get all these coins in your pocket after you pay the bill so i gave the little coins as a tip . Maybe I was having a bad night but there are too many places in Pattaya to earn a second try from me....one other thing a place that has to advertise that much as they do to stay in business has to have something wrong with them...... Also with that much advertising it has to add to the bill..... Just my opinion

I'm very sorry to be negative but i can't let it go. I went to Tequilla Reef because I'm from New Mexico and that IS in the United States.

We cook both Spanish and Mexican food here. Of course its Thailand not Mexico or New Mexico I understand that. I will start with the salsas and chips. They were good. Honestly they were good.

The chili was odd and didn't taste like Chili at all. I saw the menu and was confused. Nothing else looked right. It seemed more American food with a side of salsa. The Margaritas were great too and the young gals were pleasant and very kind. But the food overall just wasn't right.

If you want Mexican there is a restaurant on the same Soi as Classroom and Mistys. Its about 5 businesses up from Beach road on your left if your walking towards Second Street. I was actually impressed by it.

This place is easy to find the bar has photos of US and UK jets and a American Flag, and Brittish Flag on the roof inside.

I promise it was impressive for Thailand.

I had to say something positive so thats why i listed the other restaurant.

 

I just want you all to have good food.

 

Adios Amigos.

This restaurant is on Pattayaland 2, is called the Blue Parrot, and is MUCH (I agree) better than TQ Reef.

Heh heh... I always enjoy going to the Blue Parrot with my evening's companion - the food I find greatly to my taste.

 

And the one time I visited the TQ Reef I did enjoy the meal. However, I could only manage the chilli chips (French fries) starter because the portion was too humongous to allow for anything else. :) Hooray! :D Next time I'll try the ribs.

 

Oddly, the worst Mexican food I ever had was in Mexico. Go figure. :wacko:

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6 
      6th of June - Illuzion
      13th of June - (next bar we have open)

      I look forward to meeting people again.
