They (The Golden Margarita) offered the worst semblance of Mexican food I had ever had. The place is now called Bistro 31. Another dining dining experiment on Big Pine that is destined to fail also unless they get their act together soon.

Really average, but not bad if you are in the mood for Mexican food. The owners are very nice. Service good, food good, prices good.

We didn't think it was possible to mess up mexican food, but this has to be the worst mexican food we ever had...The place is dirty, the benches are all torn with stuffing coming out, I won't even mention the trip to the restroom or the peek in the kitchen! We can't figure out how this place even stays in... More

This restaurant started out good......then it seemed like everything changed. When they first opened I was never charged for chips and salsa,......now, you are charged - and I always order an entree. The guacamole, cheese and sour cream servings on the fajita order used to be enough for a little on each fajita, now you get about 1/2 teaspoon of... More

As others have noted a Mexican restaurant owned/operated (my guess) by Asians. The food was so-so. The price so-so. The BIG misleading "specials" sign irked me the most. You had to sit at the bar to get those specials. There was a small sign far to the left of the entrance doors that noted this which we didn't notice coming... More

Have you ever had a taco that tasted like it came off a Chinese buffet? Waste of good real estate. It's just not possible that anyone would give this place 5 stars. The only explanation is that the owners are writing those reviews or more Chinese families are visiting. The food is just not good and I really don't like... More
