one of my favorite chains, good food at about $10 a plate. Sometimes a big crowd, think they take call ahead seating which I recommend. 2 sides: bar/lounge side which is usually packed on weekends and restaurant side. In warm times, small eat out area too.

We had driven from Nashua to Portsmouth with 6 other family members in the SUV to enjoy a birthday party for a family member. Upon entering, our waitress Nicole was very friendly, and very attentive. Within the first hour of a three hour dinner party we all were wearing a Mexican sombrero and enjoying the family fun. The food was... More

THIS Margaritas is very customer service oriented! As someone who has a lot of food allergies, it is important that servers understand my needs. The manager here is VERY accomodating and works well with my needs. Even on a busy night! We have to travel a good distance to go here, when we have one less than 5 minutes from... More

Whilst not a fan of Mexican food, my friends were and I tagged along. It was nice enough with a big menu. They love the place and I can see why. It's packaged very well and had good service. We didn't have anything extensive apart from snacks with shrimps and nachos both good. I don't know enough about Mexican food... More

My wife and I had not eaten in a Margaritas in a very long time. We decided to go for lunch at the Portsmouth location and were really pleasantly surprised. We met the manager, Samir, who really made us feel welcome and valued as guests. Our server, Brianna, was very personable, knowledgable and engaged us in conversation. We asked questions... More

I have been going here for years and have always considered it to be the best Margaritas in the state for service,drinks and food. However, on June 30..Monday night, I found the contrary. Service was extremely slow but restaurant was not busy. The food portions were half of what we normally get.This was the worst bartender ever...no alcohol at all... More

Service is good, restaurant is clean, food is good! What more could you ask for?! I recommend the "Original Fish Tacos". Very, very good. The tortilla chips are delicious. Salsa is very tasty.
