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.

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

Terrible food. Rubbish. I asked for Carnitas.. They gave me two tortillas with small pieces of bacon and some burn fat pork. The need to go BJs in Aurburn and see the Carnitas by Aragon Sanches. I mentioned this because is closer to them. Mainer probably do not know too much about Mexican food. They are robbing you. I have... 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

We stop at the Auburn Margaritas at least 3x a year, the last time was June. We love the atmosphere! It's clean, bright, with inlaid tile tables with a cheerful feel. Our servers have been friendly and we cant recall a bad meal. We usually get a taco salad and enchiladas or fajitas. The margarita menu is extensive as you... More
