Have been here two times in the last year, lousy each time. There will not be a third. Chimichanga tonight was horribly greasy and bland, wife's tacos were not bad. Chips seemed old and stale to me. We were only ones in restaurant. Hannah, our server did a good job. Food is really bad, many more choices in town that... More

My girlfriend and I decided to give Margaritas a shot despite some negative reviews on here due to our desire to eat outside around the square on a beautiful Saturday evening. As some others have said, the location is the best thing about the restaurant. Everything else is average or below average. The place was not busy but the service... More

This place is centrally located downtown on the square, which is the high point of this restaurant. There just isn't any consistency. I used to go every week for lunch with some of my coworkers and while the service wasn't perfect, the food was pretty good. Recently they got rid of their lunch menu and started trying to charge for... More

The food was just ok, a little disappointing that we had to pay for chips and salsa, they do not offer them to you. Food was a little bland, but the staff was very nice and the atmosphere was friendly..

I wanted to like this place. Great location, neat decor. But......i was not impressed. I have never had such bland food. I was desperately looking for something to add some flavor. Server seemed clueless.Even the salsa was bland. Will not be back

There is nothing to report that is good inthis place. Disorganized, messy, un-clean and service that consists of takin your order and delivering it ...with much delay. This is what the web site tells you about the place "Margaritas Bar & Grill is focused on providing a high quality dine-in experience and customer satisfaction" High quality? come on it is... More

My boyfriend and I had stopped in at Margaritas for drinks and snacks a couple of times, and finally got around to going for dinner. It did not disappoint. They serve some of the tastiest Mexican food I've ever had. Everything was sizzling hot and a riot of flavors. The whole place has a friendly atmosphere and service is very... More

Let's get the good out of the way first - great location on the Valpo square. The good ends there. Service is awlful, the food is okay but only when it's hot.... a cold burrito tastes terrible, believe me. I gave it three tries over the last 12 months or so and each time they failed. Last time I didn't... More

I came here for lunch. They have awesome lunch specials. Love the salsa and chips that are served before the meal. I enjoyed a relax atmosphere and music. Servers are attentive and great. I recommend the Lunch Specials.
