They are getting ready to move (late May 2017) so there might be a little shake-out, but the change should allow for more seating and parking options. Food is consistently good and reasonably priced. Hoping they get a full liquor license so they can make "real" Margie's. If you have not given them a try get by there in June,... More

Last day in the old place. Can't wait to see the new digs down the street. Will be bigger, hopefully won't lose its charm.

We stumbled upon this restaurant after we planned to go to one up the street and no one waited on us. Our waitress could not have been any nicer or more attentive. She was very sweet and happy. I noticed the same exemplary service as another waiter attended the table beside us. Loved the chips and salsa! I had the... More

Very small and extremely busy on Cinco de Mayo, however, they did take a reservation which meant we were seated almost immediately! Service was outstanding - very efficient and pleasant, even on such a busy night! Food overall was good & they serve wine and beer, including a "margarita" made with wine which was surprisingly tasty!

Small restaurant in a strip mall. We arrived and were asked if we had reservations... Caught me off guard because of it's location. Even though we didn't, they found room for us :) When we went inside I understood why. Almost every table was full. The staff were friendly and the food was good. Glad we went!

Had dinner here recently on the recommendation of a frequent visitor. We wisely made reservations. Our food was served quickly and while still hot. All our meals were delicious. Outstanding service. Looking forward to returning when in Sarasota again.

I joined together with my husband, some friends and relatives for a birthday celebration for a woman who loved authentic Mexican food. Our food was delicious and the service was exceptional, with Pedro as our server and other staff. I don't think we needed to ask for refills on drinks/water or chips as this was overseen with care. Our only... More

We visited this restaurant for the first time for Cinco de Mayo 2017. We were greeted by the owner at the front door. The restaurant is charming and the food was amazing. Our server Lisa was friendly and helpful. We were happy we arrived when the restaurant opened at 11am because it quickly filled up. I had a wonderful shrimp... More
