“Worth the mile walk from downtown.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

This restaurant is in an area in Downtown called Fountain Square. There are a couple of small boutiques, cafes, restaurants, and the Film Forum in this area. I walked from the Monument Circle and it was just a tad over a mile. But La Margarita was worth the walk. The margaritas are made with fresh lime and are outstanding! I also had taquitos and a chicken fajita salad. All ingredients were very fresh and tasty! The atmosphere is very laid back. Great for an afternoon snack.

“Great food and drinks and fun atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

My husband and I love to sit at the bar when eating at La Margarita. The bartender is fantastic and quite entertaining and the food is awesome. I especially like the shrimp in chipolte sauce. La Margarita attracts a good crowd and it is always fun to walk around Fountain Square afterwards and listen to music, window show or just people watch. We eat here about once a month or more and highly recommend it.

“Better than the run of the mill mexican”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

The offering of three different types of salsa with the obligatory chips was a nice touch. All three options tasted quite fresh. I opted for one of the burritos and was surprised when the waiter asked how hot I wanted it on a 1 to 10 scale. I opted for a #7. From what I could tell, a greater portion of hot sauce was added towards the middle of the burrito, giving it a lot more kick. The lunch crowd was rather large on the day I visited. I'm not sure how the dinner crowd is doing.

“Better than expected”

Once we found the entrance we were pleasantly surprised with the restaurant. Very eclectic decor and wonderful wait staff. Food was awesome and so were the margaritas. Definitely would go back. The guys loved the beer menu.

“Best Mexican Food in Indy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

My husband and I tried La Margarita in Fountain Square about a year ago. After the first encounter, we both agreed that their food is very delicious. I love the homemade salsa...the green salsa, and the fresh one with avocado are great. The shrimp and grouper chipotle are also fantastic. You can't beat the price for the amount of food that is served. It is a bargain. There service is great as well. Can't wait to go back for more!
