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

Brittany served us and was lovely. It is great to have people who chat about themselves and share experiences, makes you feel at home and welcome. I had my first fish tacos! not feeling terribly hungry I decided to share with my daughter, so she chose our food. They were really good. Well done Cafe Margarita…..I would chose them again.

We were really disappointed after having a great day on the square with the reenactments. Chicken Fajitas were made with chicken thigh meat. No taste. Worst tamales and enchiladas my husband ever had. We should've ran when we saw Mexican and Italian on the sign. Don't go here...

The service was excellent and friendly. I had a frozen strawberry margarita but it didn't have much taste. Our queso fundito app was amazing. I had cheese enchiladas and they were solid, not melted. It had a little rice and small portion of beans. One of my sons had a very large plain chicken quesadilla he liked a lot but... More

Just stopped in for a prickly pear margarita. Delicious. But was required to buy chips and salsa even though we just wanted a mid afternoon drink.

What a find! I had a plain burger that was so tasty I could've eaten two. No French fries but warm kettle chips were delicious. My husband had bolognese. I also had two of the biggest margaritas I've ever seen. Great value and service too.
