We were taken here as it was our cousins birthday and this was her restaurant of choice. I was shocked by the line and amount of people there were on a Monday night. Certainly a crowd does not lie, unless the food is being given away, so my anticipation was heightened just a bit more. It took awhile to get... More

It's worth it! Cool atmosphere, good food, better prices... you can't go wrong! We like it... only reason we don't go there as much is the waiting time and like I said sometimes it's worth the time. .. we don't wait because sometimes we are just to hungry or lazy to wait. .. all kids menu is less than $5.00...

Great food, atmosphere and staff. There is always a wait, sometimes short sometimes long but it's totally worth it. Great food at great prices

I have been here so many times. They serve the best mexican food. There is always a long wait here no matter what time you go but it's definitely worth waiting. I wouldn't mind going there any day any time.

I have been going to this restaurant for the past couple of years! The food is great, service is good but the folks at the check-in are Racist! Every time I go there or am compelled to go there, the racist courtesy of the front desk folks leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. For my fellow Indians who want... More

Incredibly fresh fish. I had the blackened salmon. Came with black beans and corn. Salmon was perfect in appearance, taste and texture. Tasty margaritas, many flavor options. Salsa is spicy, but complex in flavor. Chips always hot and fresh. Ate at 2pm on a Saturday and the place was packed. I noticed good vegetarian, chicken, pork and steak entrees in... More

This place is packed all the time. The downside I agree with most of the reviewers is the wait time. Its at least 45 mins and hence cannot be recommended for a family outing especially if you have infants or toddlers. The food is good. I ate black chicken fries and it was awesome I must say. Salmon and Beef... More

This is restaurant serves best Maxican cuisine . We have repeated our visit at this place for dinner . The service is excellent. It has variety of Mexican food with great taste . One should definitely enjoy Margritaville when you visit this place for food .

I lived in Santa Cruz, California for a few years, and one of the things I really miss is the fantastic Cal-Mex food served at e.g. the local taqueria at UCSC. I've tried a few Mexican places in other places, that have never quite made the cut. Jose Tejas does! Their pulled beef burrito was just like coming home (if... More
