Superior Service by Alan...Ask For Him by Name !

It made me shiver hearing his story. 3rd visit in 1 year & each time it gets better...the food is superb as... read more

Thanks for the review! We will be sure to thank Alan for doing a great job (like he always does). The Ghost of Tio Juan's does a good job too :) Hope you can come back again soon. More

We have been coming here for years and this is by far the best Margarita location. We always sit in the bar and have incredible service with awesome margarita's. If we bring a "newbie" to the restaurant we always sit in a cell (being a former jail and all) and that's always fun. The food is very good...esp. the guacamole!

This place has great nachos and drinks. Its a little loud but you can ask for a quieter "cell" for an intimate dinner. This is the hangout place for the Concord people. I always see someone that I know there! Great service.

A fun place to go for drinks and meet up with friends. They offer Happy hour food and prices. They have plenty of staff so the service is good. Not a lot of space for big groups.

Thanks for the nice review. We wish we had more room too, but that's one of the charms of being in an old police building. Hope we see you again soon! More

I've had so many happy memories here over the past 14 years and most without alcohol, to boot! Even when we moved away from NH a few years back the quality had started to go downhill, but at our recent visit back we feel it had gotten worse. Though we were instantly seated, service was eh and not 100% accurate,... More

Thanks for the review and for being such a long and loyal guest. We have changed the recipe for our chicken to one that has a little more flavor and stays juicier. We'll pass along your feedback to our team. We still hold true to the same standards of great service and value that we have for almost 30 years.... More

The restaurant is in the old Concord Police Station. Some of the tables are in the jail cells. There are regular booths and tables, but I prefer the privacy and uniqueness of sitting in a cell. I ordered a diet soda with lemon and received the tiniest piece of lemon that wasn't even squeezable. The lemon slices have gotten smaller... More

Went to dinner last night with my family at Margaritas in Concord, formerly Tio Juan's. I know the name has changed but hoped the food hadn't. I ordered the Chicken Chimichanga and was so disappointed. The name was the only thing familiar about it. The tender shredded chicken had been replaced with tough blackened chicken chopped in big pieces. If... More

We had a burger, a burrito and 2 items from the children's menu and everything was well prepared. It was possible to exchange a side of fries for a side salad at no extra charge.

Service is VERY slow. Food is average. Nothing to write home about but it is just ok. CJs in Manchester is much, much better and the service is excellent.

Used to love this place. My daughter and I were regulars since moving to Concord in the fall of 1999. The past few years though, it has gone down hill steadily. The food quality is poor - the chipolte chicken crisp I used to crave tasted as though it was made with canned chicken the last few times I had... More
