“Great tasting resturant...”
Reviewed February 15, 2009

Great tasting resturant, good atmosphere and the deals if your a college student are great, where else can you go with a college ID buy one entree and get the second one for free? ( all people in the group need a college id for the discount ) the service is ok but thats what you get when you hire highschool? / college students.

“Our favorite place in Mystic!”
Reviewed December 1, 2008

We love going to Margaritas for dinners. It has a great atmosphere for dates (good lighting and cozy seating) and hanging out with friends (they move tables for large groups).

We love:
the view from the third floor in the winter (you can see downtown)
warm chips and salsa (not served during lunch)
variety of the menu
being able to share an entree with no hassle
second floor is very kid friendly


Things we don't love:
third floor gets busy on game nights (you will wait for food)
parking - you either pay to park in the downtown lot or cross your fingers for street parking

“OK until the other nacho fell!”
Reviewed November 27, 2008

My husband and I were looking for a quiet place for dinner when we decided to try Tio Juan's Margaritas. We ate on the first floor and ordered their Nachos, Shrimp and Avacado salad, and steak fajitas. The atmosphere was festive but not overbearing. The food itself was not anything spectacular. It was comparable to other American chains. The waitress seemed friendly but she was hard to find for refills. The restaurant was not full so we were puzzled as to why she would often disappear from sight. We were satisfied with the overall experience until the middle of the night. My husband and I likely got food poisoining from the nachos since it was the only dish we both shared. We alternated between suffering from bouts of diarrhea and vomiting. As I write this, we're having to extend our stay in Mystic because we are too ill to drive this morning. I would not go to this place again!

“Went here on my B-day!!”
Reviewed November 18, 2008

Ok facts first. The party size I was with was 6 people. Now unless your new to dining out , like most places parties of that size get charged automatically 18% tip on the bill. Now Service , where do I start , our waitress must have been more than aware of her tip being included automatically because we really hardly saw her at all. We were ther for 2 hours and had 2 drinks. Normally we have many more than that!!! The food was sub par at best, we got the chimichanga's they were ok , we have had better, and we all got what looked like a mexican pizza, it was pretty average. We did finally get the waitress as she was serving all the tables around us, This visit was on a Saturday night and the place was not even at half capacity. So the bill came and her $40 tip was included, although I would have rather given her $1.00 because of her horrid service. It was unfortunate because we won't go back anytime soon, and they really had the oppurtunity to make alot more money had the waitress done her job.
