First, this is not an upper-class establishment. I do not think that was ever their business model of their intentions. It is merely a small restaurant in a small strip mall that tries very hard to offer a variety of food for a decent price. I have not been into the kitchen, nor do I wish to... read more

This place is excellent for authentic Mexican food. The portions are generous and extremely delicious.

Of all the local Mexican restaurants (and there are lots!), this is my go-to spot. The staff recognizes and warmly greets all the guests, to-go boxes are filled with surprisingly generous helpings, and the service is always attentive.

It used to be really good, but unless it was because we had went around 3 in the afternoon, the food was hard, of very poor quality. Not much to select from the buffet.

This is the first time I have ever been to a Mexican lunch buffet. The numerous samples we're all delicious. Good variety. Cute decor.

There are very few Mexican restaurants around here that offer a buffet, and this one does it so well! The buffet is only offered for lunch, but it is quite sizable and offers all the regular menu options plus some unexpected options as well. You have your queso dip, chimichangas, burritos, fajitas, quesadillas, etc., but you also have seafood burritos,... More

I thought I would give this place a try since it's right down the road and I wouldn't have to travel all the way to knoxville to get good food. I was very disappointed at the food and service. The salsa tasted like it came from a can, the burrito was soggy and the chicken inside tasted like the inside... More

My visit to this restaurant was a huge letdown. It had been some time since last dining here and I will never return. The service was fair but not good. The food was bland and just had no taste. I feasted on the buffet, which used to be great but now is no good.

I've enjoyed everything from Margarita's for over a year now. Amid rumors of bad service and deplorable kitchen sanitation, I shook my head at the notions and continued to enjoy many lunch specials and the buffet. I was a supporter of the business! My last trip with an acquaintance was fairly normal. Greeted quickly, ample seating, quick service... no problems... More

Love the food at Margarita's!! The service is excellent. I went with a few friends and we were all very pleased. The chorizo cheese dip is great. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone that likes authentic Mexican food.
