Located in a shopping center. Entrance is nondescript and may be difficult to locate. Inside is a nice family restaurant. Service was good and the food was good. Very pleasant place to eat.

Wonderful family owned restaurant which is a mainstay in Irving for over 20 years. I especially love the minimalist decor, mural and of course the wonderful food. Their charro beans are the best I have ever had anywhere & I'm from San Antonio! Also love the gorditas and chicken enchiladas.

Well... the front of the restaurant was absolutely hideous and felt like driving into the ghetto when seeing it. But when you walk inside, it's actually well decorated (possibly a new renovation? Because it definitely does not match the exterior). I tried not to let my first impression get in the way of my experience here. Let's put it this... More

Based on trip advisor we decided to give the restaurant a try. It was really good and priced well. The decor was nice and the service was awesome. Rambo was our waiter and he was excellent. We had the white queso with chorizo which was very tasty. My husband and I had the beef fajitas with bacon which were delicious.... More

This is quintessential Tex-Mex. I got the table side guac, and the avocados were perfect. Also, the enchiladas were very tasty. The interior is upscale lunch-y, so it's not first date night. Maybe 4th or 5th date night. Service was very enjoyable. The people are engaging and upbeat, with good suggestions and able to deal with changing orders. The only... More

I went to LaMMM on a Wednesday night. I was quickly seated and the chips and salsa arrived promptly. I started my dinner with a very strong margarita and guacamole. For dinner I had the pick three which consisted of a pork tamale, soft chicken taco, and chicken enchilada. I wrapped up my meal with an order of sopapillas (with... More

We tried La Margarita based on the trip advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. This was a really great meal. The only disappointment of the whole meal was the salsa was boring. Great margarita, big portions and good prices. The menu was really unique and each plate was tasty. Shrimp pesto enchiladas were perfectly cooked, the sauce was creamy... More

We were there for the 1st time last year during a visit to the area and it was good. Went again this year and it was REALLY good. All 4 of us give it high marks. The chips and salsa were muy tasty. I had the ox eyes stacked enchiladas which were outstanding. Great service.

We had a wonderful dinner. Full of tex mex flavors and cooked perfectly. I had the chili relleno, which was just spicy enough and 2 different sauces to provide a burst of flavor. The hubby had a wonderful skirt steak top with an egg. The dish was cooked perfectly with extraordinary flavor. The service was fabulous and the energy from... More

While in the Dallas area for a week, I ate here twice because it was that good. First, the salsa is the best I have ever had. It didn't look like any salsa I have ever had and certainly didn't taste like any other. It looked like the salsa was slightly pureed, but there were plenty pepper chunks. The salsa... More
