The food was very good with a fantastic waitress. The mexican food is REAL Mexican food...not anything al all like a fast food place. I had nachos and they were very good. I ate everything except the plate.

The menu is diverse- burgers and some Italian entrees so it should satisfy a. range of tastes. Very reasonable prices. Our dinner with a drink each was $35. I would recommend... More

Previously traveling to Tombstone on numerous occasions I found a place which had the original décor and ambiance of the 1880's at this location which just happened to offer fantastic traditional home cooking one would expect, so I was a little disappointed this place had closed and been recently transformed into an Italian/Mexican diner. Finally on the last day we... More

This is one of the better places to eat in Tombstone. The menu is varied and alittle strange, but everything I had was excellent. My meal was just spicey enough to be enjoyable without being overly hot. The chips and salsa were very good.The service was very quick and the server was very helpful and extremely friendly.

Excellent patio and food. We always use the patio listening to the fountain drinking Prickly Pear Margaritas and enjoying a meal. Great restaurant on the corner of 5th and Toughnut.

We had one of our most delightful meals at Cafe Margarita due to the charming hostess, delicious Mexican food, and ability to have our Vizsla puppy with us on the patio. We are Mexican food experts having been raised on it and this was authentic, tasty Mexican cuisine with fresh salsa and multiple choices of side dishes (more than your... More
