Best Local Mexican Food

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

Hi all - We were in Holland for a long getaway weekend. Stayed at the Inn at Old Orchard Road. We decided a picnic lunch in the park would be perfect. Power in downtown went out, just as we entered a deli shop to order carry out. We came upon Margarita's as a fluke and ordered take-out there. Splending food... More

Complimentary basket of chips were unexpected but okay tasting. Salsa was fine. My friend got the liver which everyone said tasted bad, but I liked it. I had the ham torta which was very good, $7.41 out the door. The sandwich, though american looking had ham, avocado, tomato, beans, sour cream, lettuce and onion. It was very filling.I would go...

Went there on date night with my wife and another couple. Not much ambiance, more like a dive bar without the bar. First issue was the house salsa. It tasted like ketchup with onions in it. The chips were totally generic too. Food was okay. I had fajitas rancheros. Meat was tough and greasy, which is the exact opposite of... More
