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.

If your looking for a great place for fun, cocktails and finger food with a Mexican twist. This is it in Portsmouth as well as their other locations. Meal menu items can run from fair to very good. I especially like their grilled vegetable salad. But for fun times with cocktails and appetizers. Two thumbs up. Ole'

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...
