Good food, large portions

I've been here a few times with my elderly mother and on my own. I like the happy hour and the ambiance is nice in the restaurant. If you're in the mood to be a little outside of the main street scene, this is a good choice as it has good food and convenient parking. The only negative - and... read more

It's an option of mexican food in Palm Springs, but once I had a lunch that wasn't so good. I think there are another good options at downtown.

I had a margarita and enchiladas verdes. The drink was OK. The food was mediocre Tex-Mex. It came out quickly, so I guessed that it had been waiting in a refrigerator until it was showtime, then dashed off to the oven or microwave. The tortilla was so tough in places I needed a knife. The two enchiladas were not just... More

margarita's has become one of our favorite restaurants in palm springs, the drinks, the food, the staff - especially dianna, our favorite waitress! the owner aphrodite is also a delight. and the fact that it is so big means you can always get in without a wait - even on cinco de mayo!!!

This was a very disappointing restaurant. From the food to the service, very lacklustre and there are so many great choices for Mexican food in the area, keep looking…..

After I go home and change my clothes. I noticed it was reeking as if I worked in KFC's kitchen. Their exhaust system over fryers doesn't seem to work well. It's been going on for few years now. I'm visiting the place less because of stinky clothes.

Ate here with a group of fellow convention goers for lunch. One would think that a restaurant across the street from the convention center would be used to handling large groups more speedily and efficiently. Waitress came back four times with a single pitcher of drinks each time to refill coke, diet, tea, and water for our group of 10.... More

Great Happy Hour! Unlike most restaurants they actually give you a good pour Margarita during Happy Hour! The food is good and you do not have to worry over stack service, excellent!! Will go back time and time again when in town.
