Have ordered carryout twice in the last month or so. The first time they were not at all busy, but was told over the phone that they did not do curbside pickup, I would have to come in and get it. The staff was not...at all busy when I went in. Seemed a little odd that they wouldn't bring it out- like pretty much everybody else does now. Second time, I was told I had to order online if I wanted curbside pickup. So I did. Was displeased to find out that there is a surcharge for "to-go packaging." I went ahead with the order. The estimated time was about 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, I pulled in, called and told them what I was driving. The man on the line told me it would be right out. 20 minutes later, I called again. They brought it right out, and the guy told me "the pork looked a little sketchy, so we re-did it. I would have called to tell you but I we didn't have your number." Which was complete male bovine manure, as I was req'd to enter my number when I placed the order. Also, my order was done when I called the 2nd time, as they brought it right out. Not sure what was going on, but i got the distinct feeling I was getting the runaround. Felt like my business was not very valued. Not the Margarita's I've gone to for almost 30 years. Not likely to be back.More

Busy place on a Saturday night but such good food. My husband had the chimichanga and I had tacos-both were amazing.

Chips, queso and salsa came out quickly and service was excellent. Margarita was not stirred or shaken so first drink was warm. Puffy tacos were amazing and (ground beef) and shredded chicken tacos were very cheesy. Shrimp and grilled tilapia tacos were excellent with cilantro...and onion. Portions were good and we didn’t even get rice or beans but had more than enough to eat. An order of sopapillas includes six medium triangles with whipped cream and honey. Yum! Definitely a good experience and would go back!More

My first love is their Beef Enchiladas but the ground beef tacos and the cheese dip our wonderful as well. Most of the staff has been there a while and even though they are always busy the staff is very attentive.

We were really surprised to find such excellent Mexican food in Kansas City. Were from Oklahoma and we have a lot of fine Mexican restaurants to choose from and Margaritas was better than any of them. Would love to come back.

I grew up eating puffy tacos in Des Moines so I was happy to see them on the menu. The puffy tacos at Margarita's were better than I remember eating previously. So good! And then to have Margarita's salsa to dip the tacos. A really...good combo. Everything was good, hostess, service, and atmosphere.More

We had a fabulous dinner at Margaritas. The margaritas were perfect and the Cozumel enchiladas with chicken were outstanding. Service was equally outstanding. We will definitely go back.

First time to this location and it won't be the last. Food was hot and delicious. Service was excellent! Entire establishment was very clean and welcoming. Four of us all agreed if you want lots of great Mexican food at a reasonable price this is...the place to eat.More

This is pretty typical Tex/Mex but I still like it, and the service was nothing less than outstanding. We were here for a busy lunch. We were served by Server 7332 and she deserves the best tables on the best shift and the busiest days....Three of us were there for lunch last week. Our orders were taken promptly, the food came out when it was ready and not all at once. The chips and salsa were refilled without having to ask, as were our waters. Truly, some of the best service I've had in any restaurant in the world. We had a half order of the Margarita dip, which was good, though we really didn't need more. The chips are on the thicker side - not my favorite - and the salsa is thick and smooth, with a slight kick. Not my favorite salsa in town, but not my least favorite, either. I had the lunch enchilada with ground beef and beans in lieu of rice. It was very good with plenty of cheese and ground beef. Others in my party had the two lunch tacos (plenty of ground beef) and the small chichen chimi. The others like their meals as well. I haven't been here in over 10 years and was happy that it was still very good. Thanks for reading. I’ll appreciate a thumbs up below if you’ve found this helpful.
