First time staying in Peru, my hotel was right next to (walking distance) to a Mexican Restaurant named Jalapeno's but when I walked in it didn't have a bar (eating single on the road) so I went down the street to Mi Margarita.

Thanks for the positive review, we appreciate your business. We are so happy that you stopped in while you were traveling. I am sorry that there was a bit more enchilada sauce than necessary, we will take this under advisement and remember it for next time. I hope that you stop by again if you are in the area! More

We went around the 6pm dinner hour and there were several people in the restaurant. Not overcrowded. The food was good and the service was good. I thought there margaritas were tasty. The salsa was a bit runny for my liking. Overall it is a good place to eat.

The staff and service alone keeps you going back!! Great people and the food is delicious!! My only advice is to not over eat the chips and salsa because the food portions are huge! You will leave stuffed! Oh ya by the way there margaritas are hands down the best around!

I've been going to Mi Margaritas for about 20 years. The wait staff are consistently friendly and efficient. The food is always good and served in a timely manner. I would recommend the fajitas, but all of it is good. The fried ice cream is delicious. The margaritas are very tasty and come in a variety of flavors. It is... More
