Boy, this town closes down early. Went for dinner and had the burrito with chicken. Too much tortilla and the chicken lacked fkavor. Had the sauce on the side just incase I didn't like it, a good idea. Used the chip salsa instead. Server was very good and patient as we were there just past closing.

We had a very good meal here. The server was friendly and courteous. The chips and salsa were so delicious . I just wish that you didn't have to pay for a second basket of chips and salsa. The food was good, but seemed more American than what I would have expected. It was a bit different to see Mexican... More

Everything was great! From Barb's welcoming grace to every customer to the carefully prepared dishes and excellent Margaritas - my husband enjoyed the Shrimp Tacos with Avocado and I had a Chimichanga, which was delicious and had a flaky pastry crust - the side rice and roasted corn was a perfect compliment - Wonderful! One of the best restaurants in... More

Warm and coloured location! Short menù, but with every plate of Mexican tradition. Sometimes mixes mexican and american cuisine. Good quality, quick service and very kind staff. We thought that being in the centre of a touristic destination as Tombstone the prices were high, but we paid as much as a fast food!

One of the only places in town that offers traditional Mexican food, Café Margarita is always a good choice. The restaurant is clean and festive. Their menu offers a large variety of delicious meals. They have both indoor and outdoor seating available and can generally seat a larger family without much of a wait. (Busy weekends can be an exception).... More

Although we have visited TOMBSTONE , many times over the past few years, we never had a shot at trying out this wonderful little place. The reasons were, it seemed , whenever we did wander down this side of town, this place was always busy and packed with bussiness!!!! So, because we had planned a trip there for halloween, we...

This place was recommended by a shop owner. It's off the main drag in a cute little building with outdoor patio, too cold while we were there to eat outside. Salsa was great and meal was very good. Not a large place, but they probably could have used a third person helping out. But we did get refills without having... More

We were relieved to walk in on Friday afternoon & only have to wait 15 minutes or so for a table. We finally got drinks, then 10 minutes later, chips & salsa. (Very good salsa) then we waited to order, finally saw our waitress again. Ordered & waited & waited & waited. With empty glasses. We waited over an hour... More
