Great little restaurant, chips and salsa and margaritas were amazing. Our family had mixed reviews on the food, but we all agreed on those 3 things. People are dressed in traditional clothing and very friendly. I recommend this place for food and drink.

The food, drinks, and atmosphere were great at Cafe Margarita. We had dinner there before we left town and were not disappointed! The prickly pear margarita was fabulous!

We can't believe that it has a 4 star rating. There were four of us for dinner on Saturday night and the consensus was that the food was some of the worst Mexican food we all ever had. Simply not much else can be said.

We all ate lunch here at this restaurant and I was disappointed that we thought it was strictly a Mexican restaurant and it was not. Us all kinds of food on the menu. It was pricey and the food wasn’t that good

We live in Tucson and drive down occasionally and usually have a meal here. I haven't tried anything that I haven't enjoyed and the staff is always friendly.

One block off Adam street. Nice decor. Good food. Sat on patio in courtyard with fire blazing. Cool desert night. Not too many local places can have fire going. This place is replica adobe style.
