The name Teela comes from the Native American word for strength, and such is the inspiration behind the menu and the restaurant. Arte and Nik have created a menu with strong, bold tastes such as the Southern BLT Tacos with fried green tomatoes and the Crab and Shrimp taco, while offering traditional samplers like roasted chicken enchiladas and fajita steak nachos.
The greatest strength of Teela Taqueria comes in choice – the ability to design a lunch or dinner plate complimentary to one’s personal palate. Tacos may be served on traditional soft flour tortillas or corn tortillas upon request. Entire meals may be created by mixing and matching from the specialty tacos, traditional favorites, enchiladas, nachos, quesadillas, soups and salads. And with prices not exceeding $12 for the most expensive item (the Teela Protein Plate with two sides), wallets remain strong as stomachs becomes fully sated.
