While visiting my mother in Holland, I knew I had to find a good Mexican restaurant to take her to since she had just moved there from Arizona and absolutely loves Mexican food. We love it as well. I looked through Trip Advisor and found 2 in the area that were higher in the ratings. Even though there was one... More

We arrived at about 6:45 PM Thursday evening. There was a sign posted please see yourselves and we found a seat quickly because the restaurant was only about half-full. As we waited for our server to come to the table we surveyed the decor of the restaurant. I would describe the interior of the restaurant as one that is a... More

For a start the chips and salsa are good. The menu is wild and good. Service is fast and friendly. It's a busy place for the locals...

The food is consistently good. Always tastes fresh and homemade. The atmosphere is comfortable and welcoming. Prices are appropriate for what you get. Don't expect this is going to be another typical Tex-Mex kind of place of beers and tacos, boring. This is going to my abuela's house to eat. Its very good Mexican food (chicken flautas are my favorite)... More

My wife and I went there for breakfast for the first time based on all the favorable comments on Trip Advisor. The interior of the restaurant is very plain - one of those places that are one big room with a bunch of tables, chairs and some booths by the windows. For those people who like to have a cold...

My wife and I have now been to Margarita's twice. The food is excellent, and exactly the right flavors and spices. The service is quick, friendly and the staff is very welcoming. Prices are reasonable. The atmosphere is quite comfortable. This is not a fancy, high end restaurant. It is not meant to be. But it is a worthwhile destination... More

Other reviewers have said it well - great good, great service, great price. My in-laws took us here recently and it was what I expected. Not much in the way of fancy or upscale atmosphere, just really good Mexican food, very friendly staff, and great prices. Go and enjoy!

I did not know what to expect when we went here. The inside is rather shabby and I wouldn't say it was the cleanest but the service was great and the food was very tasty. You do not get traditional Spanish Rice, which I don't like, but it is a Mexican rice and very good. I had the senior burrito... More
