The food was acceptable but not fantastic by any means. With all the other Mexican restaurants to choose from in the area that are much better I won't be back. The margaritas were absolutely horrible.

Lunch selections are LARGE, and inexpensive...lunch fajitas definitely enough for two, unless you're starving! Clean, quiet restaurant, with prompt friendly service - try it you'll like it (and GREAT Margaritas by the way!!)

We have been to Las Margaritas many times, and the food is always wonderful. The service is hit or miss, but it's never been too bad. The bathroom does not smell the best, but it doesn't stop me from returning. I recommend the pollo a...More
