Outstanding Service & Food

If you like Italian or Mexican, this is the place in Tombstone. It is a short walk off Allen Street. Our waitress was great. She recommended items based on our likes. Two of our friends had Italian and they raved about the taste. My wife and I ordered from the Mexican side of the menu. Our... read more

While I generally rate Tombstone's restaurants high in everything but food, Cafe Margarita was a wonderful and very welcome surprise. The drinks, the appetizers, the entrees... all were excellent, and the server couldn't have been sweeter! If you are looking for a quiet restaurant with excellent food, try this restaurant. I will definitely return and look forward to doing so!

A refreshing place to eat when visiting Tombstone. The fish tacos are our favorite, but all the entrees and specials are very good. Try the tasty Margaritas for a great addition to your meal. The flan is the best I have ever tasted.

We ate at Cafe Margarita b/c of all the good review. Boy were they off. Either it was a fluke or other people have low expectations, the food was not good. No one even ate half of their food and everyone commented how bad the dinner was. Not to mention the server acted like we were a nuisance to her.

The Café Margarita in downtown Tombstone is the place to visit when you're hungry for great Mexican food. Although the menu has all types of food to satisfy your appetite, the fajitas are their specialty.

Limited menu but reasonable prices and well prepared food. Very pleasant surroundings. Dogs are allowed on the porch. I was surprised. This is a place I would frequent in my home town.

I was so pleased with the food and service. Often when you go to a 'historical' place the food is an afterthought but this was good enough to warrant a drive. Our server was very good at recommending to us the menu items we would like and the drinks were great., Do not miss the Prickly Pear margarita. We will... More

We were a little suspicious of its Mexican & Italian menu but were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the Mexican food. The overall restaurant interior is pleasant and the service was first rate. We'd go back.

The food here was great. They had great kettle chips for those who do not care for Mexican Food. I am always on the hunt for great tamales and there were great. Also, I have a daughter with food allergies and she had a plain hamburger and the kettle chips with no problems at all.
