TripAdvisor remove this listing - they are out of business! This WAS an excellent Mexican restaurant - hadn't been there in a while but was in N.B. and thought we'd grab a bite to eat. I hope they resurface.

This is always been a decent Mexican restaurant. They served the standard fare of Mexican dishes. The prices were reasonable and they also had kid meals. I recently passed by and I noticed that they were closed and all the furniture was gone. I guess another casualty in this tough economy.

The have a very good dessert menu. The DJ is pretty good as well. The drink menu is decently prized as well. The food isn't anything too amazing, but the ambiance is usually very nice. I would say that this is one of the best locations in New Brunswick, because it is in the heart of New Brunswick. I used... More

Love the location of this place, perfect for people watching across from the train station during the day. Love the sangria! Have to go back and have a full meal.

Visited the Bar about 6 months ago and could not believe how outdated the technology was. Now everywhere you look is a flat screen. It seems like Marita's has really been cleaned up. Last time I visited, I was forced to drink Corona because the beer selection was all mainstream boring beers. I was pleasantly surprised to find a whole... More

Not very good food, not very cheap, not very authentic and i went late and apparently it turns into a night club at night. Not going back.

I went to Marita's with the hope of finding some great Mexican food in New Brunswick. Such a disappointment. My partner and I tried two different dishes with the same result: bland. I'd rather go to some chain place like Qdoba or much better yet, one of those authentic hole-in-the-wall places down French Street. Don't waste your time on this... More
