Celia!

Food was great... Margaritas were BETTER! Kind of Americanized Mexican, which I'm cool with being American and all... but the best part was our server, Celia! WHAT.... a gem.

The best chips & salsa of any Mexican place within 3 counties!!! Wait staff are always cheery, upbeat and ready to accommodate us. Special seating requests are always granted and we frequently ask to be seated away from small children or large parties, preferring a more peaceful dining time.

This is your run-of-the-mill Mexican restaurant. The quality is good, however, and consistent. You can't go wrong!

Service was slow. As I was waiting for my food I felt a cold draft and wondered, "Where could that be coming from?" as we were seated relatively far from the door. Then I looked up and noticed the gaping hole in the ceiling. First turn off. We ordered the guacamole with bacon (add $1 for bacon) there were about... More

Growing up in the Western US and living in California for a few years, good Mexican food was plentiful. Finding good Mexican food in Maine is not easy. We have tried most of the Mexican places over the years in central and Southern Maine (there aren't that many), and Margaritas is the one we continue to return to. Burritos and... More

Good food, good service at a reasonable price. There are also a few non Mexican food items on the menu.

We've been coming here for years (even at the old location). We've always had good food and service.....however, they changed the menu. Portion sizes are smaller and prices are higher. Tonight my husband and I both ordered combo fajitas. Mine came out sizzling (as they should) but my husband's were barely warm. My daughter ordered the quesadilla extravaganza....not sure what...

The place had decent food but the beans I found were dry and really didn't taste that good. The staff was friendly and the bar tender had a wonderful attitude. Good atmosphere and cool decorations but the food was a little sloppy
