Not as good as other Margarita's

Waitstaff was friendly, and the restaurant was clean. There are a number of Margarita's around Maine, and unfortunately the quality of the food felt lacking at this one. I had the black bean enchilada's which in themselves was fine. They came with rice which was pretty un-special, but edible... read more

It's been hit or miss here for a few years now. I have had some good meals in the past but recently (two or three years), the quality is definitely less than it used to be. Not worth the price tag currently. I will be spending my money at other establishments.

Food was what I expect at Margaritas, service was attentive. However, the music from the speaker right over my head was a bit load, perhaps because they weren't that busy.

We came here on a whim Friday night, were quickly seated, which is always a plus when you have 3 kids, and within minutes we had 2 bowls of warm chips and delicious salsa. We all ordered our drinks and food within 10 minutes and had our dinner in all under 30 minutes. My wife and son shared the nachos,... More

Margaritas is a chain restaurant, but at this one I ate at the bar and had great service. The food was the usual of what I expected. Straight Tex-Mex. Nothing inventive, but good. The service was excellent and that makes a big difference.

I love their mexican food, I think its the best mexican food in lewiston/auburn area. Although, their service is inconsistent. Some days you go in and their quick to take your order, bring out food, and other days their really lacking. I've been more times I can count.

We really enjoy the food at Margaritas. It's always busy, but if you can arrive a little early, you can get a good seat and enjoy a "quieter" dining experience. We were a bit put off, however, by the hostess, who greeted us by saying "sit anywhere you like." This wasn't a very impressive start to our visit, but the... More

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.

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.

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