My husband and I have eaten at Margaritas twice recently. The food is good. I'm a creature of habit, so I had the chicken tacos both times. The service was quite good, too. The only downside is that the prices seemed a bit high.

Party of 5 Saturday night Good: place was busy, had reservation. Seated right away. Service was quick Food. All good except steak fajitas. Every piece of meat was small and burnt. It came from the kitchen this way, not from being on a hot platter. Guacamole made at your table excellent. Should have complained, but ate the vegetables and chips... More

Local feel in this casual Mexican restaurant. Staff is always friendly. We go for Sunday lunch and it is very laid back. Food is average.

There were 3 of us celebrating a birthday. The hostess placed us at a large table that was lovely but near the door. I suggest during the cold months avoid the area by the hostess station as it is close to the door and drafty. It is probably one of the many good Mexican restaurants. I had the chicken tacos...

Las Margaritas serves really good northern Mexican food. My husband loves their sopas, the thick tortillas with various fillings. I always go there with the intention of ordering some, but then I never can resist the cheese filled chile rellenos, fried to perfection. The meal always starts off with a cup of chicken vegetable soup, great chicken stock, a good... More

Went with a party of 6 & 1 infant. Everybody said the food was awesome. Best Tostadas I've had in many years. Margaritas are very good as well. Will definitely be back. Waiter also brought out some soup meat and vegetables for our 1 year old.

Not many places around that gives good authentic food and drinks. The food is deliciously authentic and the drinks are literally divine. Nice neighborhood gem. The only bad thing I would like to point out is, the restaurant is in a residential area. If you go on the weekends in the evening, sometimes parking is scarce.

AS a previous reviewer wrote, prices are increasing and food quality is getting bad. Went last evening with friends, and we were disappointed with the service and our food. Nothing came out hot...Luke warm was the order of the day. Service was slow and requests were ignored. Will probably not be back

We loved this place when it was Lalo's. And the new management did okay for a while. But the last two visits have been less than satisfactory. Prices keep going up, food quality keeps going down. Our margaritas were a disappointment, also. They tasted like there was no alcohol in them. Service was okay, but nothing special. We won't spend... More
