We went for lunch and had our Scottish Terrier with us, so we asked for patio seating even though the day was cool. They opened up the patio and seated us quickly. Our server did a wonderful job of providing really great service even though we were remote to her work station. The chips were warm and the salsa delightful.... More

This restaurant should not be rated # 50 in Palm Springs. Service is slow; decor is dated; food, frankly, sucks; and drinks are ooverpriced .

I visit Palm Springs from time to time and when I do I always visit margaritas. The food and service are excellent. Ernesto and his crew make all the customers feel welcome and the ambiance is warm and welcoming. I've tried several items and I always go back to the chile rellenos. Full of flavor and the chile isn't over... More

Our third time here, once a year for a group of eleven. Yes, this place is great for large groups, but, alas, we find the food pretty average. Drinks are very good as is,the service. Bit we have had better Mexican food.

We ate our first dinner in Palm Springs at Margarita's Restaurant, which was two blocks from our rental condo. We both had pork fajitas and margaritas. Both were tasty and well presented. The atmosphere was pleasant; however, the rock music being played on the speakers was loud and seemed out of place at a Mexican themed restaurant.

Was very disappointed by Margaritas, I had been here before and it was nice and suggested it as a place to eat out. This time however was not a pleasant experience. We chose to order from the Mexican menu and when the food came it had just been slopped on the plate with no care, beans were over 'microwaved' and... More

We came here last week as part of a group of 70-80 gathering in their party and patio area in the back. We don't usually expect much at such gatherings, but here the buffet was constantly fresh with great Mexican food coming out of the kitchen as quickly as it was eaten up. Fabulous margaritas and daiquiris on a lovely... More

We came into the restaurant shortly after 3 p.m. for an early dinner/late lunch. Half an hour later, we were still waiting for our drink order. As we were leaving, a waiter brought HALF of our drinks. Miserable service. The waiter seemed confused about where he was and what he was supposed to do. If there was a manager, he... More

dined at Margarita's while staying at the nearby Courtyard. The margaritas were very good! An interesting menu with many mexican dishes but also a number of asian dishes as well. Food was very tasty and nicely presented in generous portions. Service was friendly and efficient. Recommend Margarita's if you are in Palm Springs

We were here some days ago after reading so many good reviews about this place, we were really disappointed. The food is nothing special, the same Kind of variety you can have at any other "mexican" restaurant. After waiting moré than 30 minutes for a simple Burrito my husband wanted to order another drink,, but no waiter around, they ignore... More
