The family has been coming here for years and years. The food is always good - the Strawberry Margaritas always refreshing. Some favorites are the Marieta's Chicken and the Carne Asada Quesadilla. Very friendly waiters with quick attentive service.

We visit this restaurant when we see my father-in-law. It always has good authentic food and service. Imagine our collective surprise on a Sunday early afternoon, For an afternoon brunch. A brisk business--good for Marieta's. But the service was lacking. Go enjoy their menu, I do think it us quality food, but expect a wait on Sundays around 1:00 in... More

The food is superior and the service is equally as great. The restaurant is exceptionally well staffed and the happy hour drinks are one of favorite reasons to frequent this location.

Been our family and friends hangout for years. Love it and don't really need others to know about it, but need to give them shout out! Can alter your orders to suit your taste. THE BEST FAJITA'S and MARGARITA'S in the USA!!! If you're new go on the restaurant side as bar doesn't have many tables and locals want them... More

My daughter and her family eat here every Thursday. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is festive. This is not a place for quiet reflection so only go if you want lively conversation with authentic Mexican food (and yummy Margaritas) I plan on becoming a regular on my future visits !

So glad we choose this restraunt. From the time we walked in to the time left every one was so friendly. Food was amazing, had chicken fajitas and they were the best we had ever had. Highly recommend this restraunt and cantina.

Met some family members here for a meal on a Wednesday evening and the place was packed, which I think is usually a good sign. I thoroughly enjoyed my Enchiladas and Margarita!! Chips and Salsa were good too, one of my benchmarks for a Mexican Restaurant (I mean if you can't do good chips?...and some don't!). The food and drinks... More

This place has been around forever! Decent food. Service pretty good. Margaritas were excellent. It's kind of dark. I think the restaurant needs a facelift. But the place is pretty busy and the locals love it here. I'd rather go to the other local Mexican places for Mexican food, but for a casual sit down place, this place is pretty... More
