Best Carne Asada

I went on a Saturday night with my husband. I love the eclectic decor. There was a classical guitarist playing western music for tips. We enjoyed him very much. The carne aside is well seasoned and juicy! They have many different varieties of beers and margaritas. Elsa was wonderful. The flan was... read more

We were the only customers for a good hour on a Thursday afternoon. Both my sister and I had the Carmelo and the meat had no flavor. The beans were mixed inside with the meat and it had a slimy texture. My husband had a chicken burrito and he said it tasted like microwave food. Ibam sure the good would... More

Based on what I'd read from other TripAdvisor members, I selected Cafe Margarita for lunch with friends from England who were visiting. The restaurant did not disappoint. We stuck to Mexican food (though they also offer Italian and a few simple American dishes), and it was fresh, well-prepared and delicious. And our server could not have been more welcoming, polite,... More

We had lunch here while we were visiting Tombstone. It was very nice, the staff was friendly, the prices were reasonable and the food was good. Especially liked the sangria. We would definitely eat here again if we're ever back in the area.

He was very polite and interested in what we did. Went to the Bird Cage and got some very interesting EVP's. that saloon is really... More

Cafe Margarita is easy to access and has both indoor and outdoor patio dining. The food choices are American, Italian, Mexican choices and all of it is good. The prices are very reasonable, service is friendly and professional. Very nice decor, comfortable atmosphere. There is an area where artists' work is displayed for sale and the cafe sits at the...

We were looking for Mexican food and the staff at our motel recommend it to us. The food was fresh, hot, large portions and tasted great. Our waitress Josephina was great she helped with our deciding what we wanted. We liked it so much we ate dinner here twice. Highly recommended.
