My boyfriend and I had stopped in at Margaritas for drinks and snacks a couple of times, and finally got around to going for dinner. It did not disappoint. They serve some of the tastiest Mexican food I've ever had. Everything was sizzling hot and a riot of flavors. The whole place has a friendly atmosphere and service is very... More

Let's get the good out of the way first - great location on the Valpo square. The good ends there. Service is awlful, the food is okay but only when it's hot.... a cold burrito tastes terrible, believe me. I gave it three tries over the last 12 months or so and each time they failed. Last time I didn't... More

I came here for lunch. They have awesome lunch specials. Love the salsa and chips that are served before the meal. I enjoyed a relax atmosphere and music. Servers are attentive and great. I recommend the Lunch Specials.

Margaritas is one of two "go-to" Mexican joints in a town with many options (Serrano's being the other). The Margarita Special and the Gorditas are really great options. The vibe in the little shotgun restaurant is neat, clean, and inviting.

Overnight stay in Valpo and we found our way downtown. There is a cluster of small restaurants on Lincolnway (old US 30), and the town has maintained its charm from the days before interstate highways. We tried Margarita's on a Wednesday night and had a pleasant experience. We ordered the fish tacos and taco dinner w/ground beef and enjoyed the... More

food is ok, typical Mexican type fare, but the drinks are great! Service was very good also. We were there for dinner. Both of us were happy with our choices.

My family does a lot of Mexican cuisine and i have spent time in a non-tourist, rural area in Mexico where I had home cooked food made for me....so I am a Mexican food snob, lol. Margaritas has all your basics...and I can't say it the "best" but it is pretty good as far as Americanized Mexican food goes. The... More

Saturday afternoon, was looking for a quick lunch with family. 1. Off to a bad start- took 10 minutes to be seated in a 75% empty restaurant. 2. Poor service overall and my beer arrived 20 minutes after being seated. Food took another 40 mts to arrive. Was a point to walk away after the beer. 3. The chicken in... More

The food was below average for Mexican. Much better options in Valpo... Casa del Mar, La Cabana, El Salto's all have the food beat. Service was OK. The only pluses are that it's downtown and sometime has live music.
