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

Hi Peter, 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 last Sunday. This is not how Margaritas treat our guest and waiting for 2hrs for food is not our normal routine. I hope this was from the time you walked in to the... More

Family favorite location - with a couple of not so good reviews - still decided to try. Visit was about 5:30 pm on Thursday night. Host was very friendly. We were seated right away. Waitress came - right to the table- took our drink orders, brought chips and salsa. She came back - took our orders; admitting it was her... More

I've been to this location a handful of times over the last four years. My wife and I live closer to Auburn, so we tend to frequent that location more often and really enjoy it. But this location in Augusta has just consistently gone down hill. I went there on a Friday with a friend just before lunch started, the... More

Myself and a coworker went here for lunch. Despite not being very busy, we waited close to 45 minutes for our meals. When they put my plate down I was shocked. I ordered the "Margarita's Tasters" plate and it looked like hot dog food. I regret not taking a picture because it was a pretty awful sight, not something I... More

Came here after an event and was starving. The waitress was very friendly and brought chips and salsa as we sat and took our drink order right away. Then we ordered tacos and chicken tostados and they were delicious. The drinks were actually really tasty and you could taste the alcohol and not the sour mix which is always nice.... More
