The desk clerk at the Bristlecone recommended this place. We eat a lot of Mexican food and this place has some of the best. Killer margs and excellent food. What else can you ask for?

Enjoyed lunch with local friends at Margaritas. Menu offered a large range of choices. Service staff were attentive and professional. Food was out promptly and was plentiful and tasty. Will definitely go back!

We have eaten breakfast here before and we did this time. We decided to try the Mexican food for dinner. The nacho plate was great and so were the Margaritas, I also had the enchiladas and they were very good

Margaritas is the in-house restaurant at the Prospector. They offer both Mexican and American choices, but once we looked at the menu, we both went Mexican. The hostess and waitress were excellent, service was pleasant and timely, food was terrific, and we both took leftovers...More

Great chips and salsa, everything else was just ok. We were there on A busy night, so there was some excuse for the lack of attention to service. Our entrees were good, not great. Overall an average meal.

Such a great restaurant. The food and service was amazing. The breakfast menu had something for everyone in my family. And the Margarita potatoes are the best. Great way to start your morning. The do room service as well.

Claudia is the best server! The margaritas are the bomb. We go for breakfast, lunch and dinner. All the staff is kind, friendly and never forgets us.

Family style Mexican restaurant currently located inside Prospector hotel on main street. Nice decor with old model trains displayed. Children's menu is nice touch as my family includes 3 grandchildren. Free chips and salsa (mild and hot) served upon seating. Service was prompt and portions...More

Great Salsa. Ate dinner and breakfast. It was okay. Tables need to be leveled, so was distracting from the experience.
