This WeHo Perennial Never Disappoints

Around for the better part of 25 years, Marix never lets down on quality. Some of the wait staff have been there since the beginning and it's always a fun place. On mild evenings the tarp roof is rolled back and you can dine under the stars while you keep an eye on the hottie at the next table.

I've been going to Marix for nearly 28 years. Always a traditional to fly into LAX and straight to Marix for their fabulous Strawberry Margeritas and Chicken Fajitas. I am a creature of habitat but sometimes get a Chicken Burrito.. My friend swears by the Shrimp Tacos. Great atmosphere, sometimes have to wait for a table as they do not... More

Lived on Flores for a couple years next door to Merix and ate there about 5 times a week. Fajitas are the best thing on the menu, especially if you ask for the veggies caramelized (don't forget). Best inexpensive (relatively) margaritas in town. It's a WeHo staple in the community as it's been there FOREVER.

My son and I just loved the meal we had here. It a cozy open air contemporary setting. The service was friendly and prompt and the restaurant was very busy. We had the very tasty cheese dip. Then I had a half order of chicken fajitas which was more than enough for 2 people. The portions are very generous. I... More

I always thought Marix was a better than average Ted-Mex restaurant, until I had occasion to eat there without any margaritas. That was a rude awakening! Solution? Mas margaritas por favor.

This tucked away gem in West Hollywood has been serving the best Margaritas and Tex Mex food for longer than I can remember. The staff are friendly and very skilled. We ate there last Friday for my wife's birthday and even the covert request for a birthday desert went flawlessly.

Parking was difficult as valet-only parking available at site, and very limited on street parking. Food was good and as expected. Service was good, but a bit slow, but we had a very large group and they wanted to get all the orders out at the same time.

I lived in LA when this restaurant first opened. It was THE happening place to eat back then. That was 30 years ago. It was typical to wait an hour to be seated. But it didn't matter. It was worth it. People watching was great. Hung out one night with Calvin Klein and his models one evening waiting for a... More

I have been a patron of Marix for almost 16 years. It has great energy, a fun crowd and fantastic service. It is the place to go for a margarita on a Sunday afternoon (restaurant has a retractable roof) or a fajita dinner with friends. The menu ranges from salads and lighter fare appetizers to enormous burritos, etc. From time... More

We've been there all of our 6 Night in WeHo, because they do have the best mexican food we've ever had. And the magaritas... Oh wow, they are so great. The staff is so lovely. It is an absolutely cool place. They make a to-die-for guacamole and Salsa and the fajitas are so delicious. And you have to try the... More
