Margaritas is always a fun place to dine. Lime in the Coconut Margaritas are my fav and the food is always good.

I have eaten here a dozen times over the last 10 years. The food is traditional and predictable Mexican restaurant fare and is pretty consistent with the other restaurants in this chain. The staff and servers are generally very friendly and I think are what makes this a good place to visit. The food is tasty but doesn't impress me.... More

I've tried the different Margarita locations and I find the food isn't that good. I've tried the location in Portland, the one in Hanover NH and this one in Exeter. I try to like it, but it's just not as good as other Mexican restaurants. I think I'm going to stop eating at Margaritas in the future. I travel a... More

Margarita's is a fun place to go. Colorful and vibrant. Its great for couples, families and very large groups. I've never come and had a bad meal or bad service, ever!

Good service,good portions,good prices and good hot food. I could not finish my dish. The inside of this place was clean and had a nice decor. My server was Matt who was excellent. He was always checking for our needs without bothering us. The only suggestion I have is that they should clean the outside windows and brighten the outside... More

This is a poor excuse for a Mexican Cuisine restaurant. It is another typical example of a chain eatery that goes by the thought process "If you add enough salt anything will taste OK". No por lo que mis amigos!!!! This place is destined for the long list of places that hang on too long and finally go the way... More

I'm glad that someone likes the food and drinks here but it's about the quality of Taco Bell, once you get past the eagerness of the staff to tell you how much you are enjoying yourself. Ironically for the name of the place, the Margaritas do not taste homemade. I guess the locals have not eaten really authentic Mexican or... More

In the area, hungry, & a quick Mexican for lunch sounded good to us. Chips & salsa were quite good, fish tacos were OK, service a bit slow.
