Ate at La Margarita for the first time on Friday night and can't wait to go back. The chips and salsa and margaritas were good, but the dinners were excellent. We had Suiza enchilada combination, and a two cheese enchilada dinner and flautas, with their Mexican-style cream sauce which was a treat for the taste buds. They had a choice... More

Stopped in with friends for drinks and a snack instead of dinner. We had the nachos which came with yummy shredded beef. Great drinks and food!

Stopped in for dinner to try the Chili Verde and I was pretty happy with my choice. The food was good and the service was very fast.

We've been going to La Margarita for years. We enjoy the chile rellenos, chicken suiza, chicken mole, pork "Jibarito", shrimp dishes, and the chips and salsa. There's a wide assortment of meals and, unlike some other mexican restaurants we've tried, the meals have fresh taste that is not overpowered by cheese or gravy. It's well worth several visits to try... More

Great for singles, couples, and groups. The food selection was good and the taste was way above average. The chips and salsa were hot and fresh... More

Chips and salsa came very quickly - good salsa! My son got the Burrito Grande which looks like the Mexican flag. The flavor of the 3 different fillings and sauces was very different - each unique and all very delicious. My sister and I split the chicken fajitas for one and it was plenty. Very fresh and tasty tortillas. My... More

Our favorite Mexican dish is chicken enchiladas in creme sauce and La Margarita's version is the BEST we've eaten in Oregon! Actually, the best anywhere! The chicken has a delicate smokey flavor, the thin tender tortillas are bathed a light very tasty creme sauce.
