The food here is good. They start you off with complimentary chips and salsa. The appetizers and entrees are always yummy. The food is not brillant, but consistently good.

We went here for dinner on a Sunday dinner and enjoyed our Mexican food very much. They offered a wide variety of dishes and even some non-Mexican kids menu items for our picky eaters. The service was a little slow because the restaurant was busy but our server was very friendly. They also have an outstanding selection of margaritas and... More

Margaritas has wonderful food and great service. My husband had the fajitas and I had a side salad and a appetizer. Scrumptious! The restaurant is decorated in the Mexican tradition, with classic music of the region

Stopped by for a quick lunch Saturday afternoon. Place was not real busy, but staff put us right next to the loudest table in the place. Really? Six cackling women drinking and they were so loud! Service was slow, don't know why, due to the slow day. Drinks were wrong when delivered, so took longer than planned. Server appeared to... More

Thanks for the review and the feedback. Sorry to hear about the noisy neighbors. At less busy times,our hosts try to spread out guests so they are not unnecessarily next to each other. Sometimes guests requests booths over tables which makes that a little more difficult, however, the hosts should have been more aware of the situation. We would also... More

Enjoyed a dinner here recently. Our server, Nicole, couldn't have been better or nicer. The menu is varied. Food was very good. They were very busy and the food was a little slow coming out. Since we got the last table this wasn't a surprise. Since we enjoy a drink before dinner and there were chips we were happy. Nicole... More

We visited yesterday for a late lunch/early dinner. The chicken fajitas were delicious. Nicole was a good waitress. Whenever we are in the Portsmouth area and want Mexican food, this is the place to go.

I've been to this restaurant twice before but it seemed ok for bar food. We ordered the main plates of shrimp which was undercooked they took the food back for a replacement ( which I never requested to sit for an extra 35minutes) and I was apparently didn't have a choice! Also the entire order was changed to something different... More

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
