If you are ok with waiting, and waiting....the food here is good, hot and fresh, we were rushed into deciding to sit in the lounge or dining area, rushed to sit and wait.

My husband and I went for lunch. He had the lunch fajita and I had the chicken fajita burrito. Both were OK. The service was quite good, though. This was our first time back in a while and it seemed to us that the food was not as good as it used to be.

Years ago, this used to be the best Mexican food around, but since they changed owners, the food is disappointing. The atmosphere is great, lots of colorful decor and special events in the bar, but you really go for the food. I have been back twice in the last few years and each time I told myself I will never...

A negative past experience a few years ago with margaritas had kept us from visiting over the last few years. They're margaritas used to be amazing, but we had some issues where it appeared they had changed it and it was no longer "an eye rolling" experience. The two or three visits with the sub par margaritas could have been... More

Margarita's is my husband's and my go-to restaurant when we want to go out to eat. I am a good cook, so I am often dissapointed by restaurants, they are either way too expensive or the food is no good. I LOVE this place. In fact, I worked there to put myself through grad school and I STILL eat there.... More

i have been searching for a great Tex/Mex Restaurant on the East Coast and today, we found it right beside Radio Shack and other stores in a small shopping center in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. It was perfect! The manager was certain to visit each and every table and the waiter was quick and extremely efficient. This is a Mexican Restaurant... More

We've eaten here 4 or 5 times over the last few years and have always experienced attentive service and the best mexican food, by far, in the MA/NH Seacoast area. Nice touch serving grapefruit soda from Mexico. Good options for gluten-free folks also, and when you ask about GF they have a good idea what you are saying...always a nice... More

Good food for a chain restaurant. Wait for food was long. Fish taco was delicious, but not spicy.

I've been to several Margaritas in various states as every so often I'm attending with vegetarians who need alternate menu options. I've been to several mexican restaurants in Texas and California so I know how the food is supposed to taste, however the food served up at Margaritas is an insult to mexican cusine. The food comes across as tasteless... More
