Tequila Real

/ Updated on December 14, 2019

After about a year of renovations, stops, starts and the like, the old Goodfellas Pizza spot at 122 Mulberry St. in Milton has finally lit up as Tequila Real, a Mexican-themed tequila-centric restaurant! The owner is related to a family that runs Plaza Tolteca in California, Maryland. If you live near Lexington Park and the Patuxent Naval Air Station you probably know this place.

We were quite pleased with our first visit. We were lucky enough to be waited on by none other than Maggie Acevedo, so whatever service issues that might have been (they’ve only been open for a couple of days) were not apparent. They did not roll back any of the flavor of their food. There are several Mexican places that have opened over the last couple of years where the food looks great on the plate, but has no taste. That is not the case at Tequila Real. The flavors are up front and work together nicely. It’s a Mexican restaurant, for goodness’ sakes, and it should taste like one.

Scroll through the gallery to get a sneak peek at a few of the dishes and the menu!

We especially liked the guac. It’s chunky (a good thing) and obviously made fresh. The hint of lime (to keep it bright green and fresh) was a value added. The interior has been completely transformed from when it was the rather ramshackle Goodfellas. Regulars tell me they did not recognize the place.

Special Thanks to my friend Jerry Pirrung for the menu shots!

    The handicap parking is on a slope far away from the front door. Too far away for me to be able to visit restaurant. Also there are two huge trucks blocking the front door view by the handicap ramp. They are there everyday. They are most forbidding for a restaurant entrance, looks like a biker dive. Since I could not walk in, I had my friend go in for takeout, food was just ok. After all the wait, extremely disappointing.

    We are anxiously awaiting its arrival. We love Mexican food, and Tequila Real sounds so interesting. I’ll have a margarita and guacamole….all other foods just are a plus!!
