If you like authentic Mexican food as much as we do, we highly recommend you visit the Mexican restaurant Tlaquepaque in Heath, Ohio. The welcoming staff always greet us with a smile. Free WARM nachos that they actually make every day at the restaurant and salsa start-off the meal quickly by the friendly staff. We order our favorite unsweet iced tea, which is perfectly iced and we can actually taste the tea. Our usual meal of choice is the Fajita Burrito with chicken (shrimp or steak are options as well) topped with their in-house queso Mexican cheese dip, which comes with a side of Spanish rice. Sometimes we opt to order a side of freshly made guacamole or a side of queso for those meals on the menu that do not come with the queso already. Bottom line, we never leave without enjoying some of Tlaquepaque’s delicious queso.
The booths are comfortable and the colorful authentic decorations and paintings, most if not all, come from Mexico, fill the room with a fun atmosphere. Some of our favorite paintings depict Lucha libre wrestlers and at least one of them gives off a humorous vibe, which adds to providing a most comfortable environment. Some black and white paintings with pops of red are also striking. Various colored glass globe lights hang above each table and the bar and star light garlands creatively incorporate a genuine ambiance. We have heard and learned about some music for the first time while enjoying many amazing meals here as well; Mexican rap and Mexican Irish music (Irish instrumentals and lyrical sounds sung in Spanish) are a couple of the new musical genres we have picked up on our visits. A couple of times when we stopped in during slower hours, we got a kick out of hearing the kitchen staff sing along with the music.
Every time we have eaten at Tlaquepaque, it is obvious that the staff work hard, are efficient, friendly, and have FUN together while they work. Ordering takeaway is also an option and every time our meals have been ready in 10 minutes from the time we placed the order over the phone! Not one bad meal has crossed our plates and not one bad experience has occurred for us at Tlaquepaque. Not many restaurants offer such quality food and service on a 100% consistent basis as Tlaquepaque; thank you Tlaquepaque for continuing to deliver positive dining experiences for us.
