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.

A friend recommended Cafe Margarita and we were not disappointed. The service was great and the food fresh and delicious. I really enjoyed the prickly pear margarita.

We ate at Cafe Margarita on May 8th, 2015! The shrimp tacos were amazing, the salsa was one of the best I've ever had, and our server, Elsa was fabulous! Everyone enjoyed their meal! The place is absolutely beautiful!!!

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 meals were cooked perfectly... 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. The Café Margarita in Tombstone is a local favorite and I can let you know that it lived up to the hype. Café Margarita, like... More
