We had dinner at the Café Margarita Friday evening. It was a beautiful evening, we sat outside on the patio. We have eaten here at the Margarita for years, it is one of our favorite places. We love the atmosphere, the staff are always friendly and the food is always really good. My all time favorite is the Steak Fajitas.... More

Had a late lunch over the Labor Day weekend after the parade and mine tour. We both had the 'Caramelo'; Carne Asada, cheese and beans grilled inside two flour tortillas served with guacamole, salsa and Mexican rice. The rice, guacamole and salsa was good, but the carne asada was on the rubbery side...... pretty chewey and dry. The restaurant filled... More

While visiting Tombstone, a business acquaintance at Fort Huachuca, AZ recommended that we try this restaurant, which we did that weekend. The service was excellent and the food was good. Surprisingly being in a tourist trap like Tombstone the prices were not too bad. If you are visiting Tombstone and are in a mood for Mexican food, give this restaurant... More

My husband I were starving so we decided to try this place out. Our waitress was super friendly which is always appreciated. The chips and salsa were okay, more of an out of the jar taste though. I ordered the carne asada tacos with corn salsa and black beans. The tacos themselves were bland and tasteless, thank goodness I had... More

This restaurant is in one of the original buildings in Tombstone. Full of history. Aside from that, with the decor and "feel" of this restaurant, the excellent food....this place is a gem! My family has been several times, and the food is excellent. The fish tacos (with soft corn tortillas), are the best I've had. Seriously! The Roasted Corn is... More

I read some mixed reviews about the place but still wanted to try it. I'm really glad our family had dinner at Cafe Margarita. The atomosphere was homey and there was a gentleman playing guitar that was amazing. Dinner was perfect. I had the grilled fish tacos (soft corn tortillas) and they were excellent- fresh, tastey and filling. My husband... More

I have been stopping at the Café Margarita on all of my trips to Tombstone for the 18 months. I have always had outstanding food, great atmosphere, and the service has always been a 10 plus. I would highly recommend the Café Margarita to all that visit Tombstone, AZ.
