The bar at Tony's Mexican Restaurant stays busy serving up margaritas and mojitos, but its clientele is mainly families. It has the three main requirements for a happy family dinner: good food, low prices and a kid-friendly staff. Tony's offers kid's plates including ­quesadillas, tacos, hamburgers, enchiladas and fried shrimp. (Adults who want smaller portions can order a child's plate for a small fee.) The atmosphere at Tony's is like a large family kitchen, so noise from fussy toddlers or crying babies is usually lost in the sea of conversation and music. There's also an outdoor patio (fenced to keep the kids from wandering) that can withstand a fair amount of yelping.

When they first opened up years ago, it was very good. I don't know what happened, but the food now is not worth the wait or the money. To my and my family it's not even real mexican food anymore. It reminds of a place that sounds like "PANCHO'S". If you might as well eat at Pancho's and save some money.

Place is always packed with a bunch of gringos who wouldnt know the difference in good mexican food or a good margarita.

Maybe they have the everclear margaritas BECAUSE of the kids.

Blech! Horrible. Not only is the food not good, but you're seriously recommending a place with everclear margaritas to take your kids? Are you alcoholics?

REALLY?? I simply don't understand why this place is popular. I live not too far from this restaurant and have given it a few tries. It is VERY ordinary and bland. The queso was very bland. I just don't get it. The only positives are the service and the margaritas.
