Okay so I do not usually drink but I was waiting for takeout. I asked for a good drink that was fruity and was given a Loco Coco drink made strictly by the bartender as a whatever you would like to make. OMG this was so good. Atmosphere is great, Food is fresh and YUMMY.

Thanks for the review and for trying our drink. The Coco Loco is really tasty - but especially good when the bartender makes it special for you. Come back again soon. More

My children and I come here about once every three months. Katie, 8 years old and Hunter,9 years old, always find something they like one the kids menu. This time I tried the chicken tostada. It was very good and the portion size was just right. I would have liked to see a few more pieces of chicken in this... More

I have been coming here for a while and it's always great, I'm not sure why it took me so long to write a review. I'm a very picky eater so it's great to find a place where I like more than one thing on the menu ( even though I almost always get the same thing haha). First off... More

My fiancee and I recently came to Maine on vacation and went out with another couple to this establishment. The food was ok,, except we did not get our food accurately. However the service was ridiculous. We waited over 25 minutes to get our drinks. Once we got our drinks we were clearly ready to order and the waitress told... More

If you are looking for a pleasant night out at an authentic Italian restaurant this is it. The food is very good. The service is attentive and the cheesecake is to die for. Don't expect Olive Garden style food. This restaurant is not a chain but is locally owned. I love eating at the local restaurants around town and this... More

We went to Margaritas looking for Spanish people to interact with. A friend laughed saying, "You won't find any." When I specifically asked in Spanish to speak with someone in Spanish, they did send a wonderful young man who conversed with us in Spanish. He also took my card to share it with a Latino group that come there twice... More

Went for a simple solo dinner within walking distance from my hotel. Disappointing. Waitress was pleasant, but the side salad and entree came together within 5 minutes of my order and both were marginal. The salad was too cold and wilted, signifying that it must have been prepped hours ago then shoved into the fridge. The entree was wrapped in... More

Dear Craig, My name is Mark Lakeman, General Manager of the Augusta Margaritas. I saw your review on Trip Advisor and wanted to apologize for your experience. The server should have asked if you wanted your salad before your meal. The handheld burritos are served warm not hot, so we have the server’s letting the guests know how it is... More

We went to Margarita's to celebrate a 3-year old's birthday. What a disappointment! It took over 2 hours to get our entrees, and although I had asked for my steak "as rare as the kitchen can cook it", my meal came out waaaaay past well done. It was inedible. I have rated this restaurant higher in the past, but I... More
