"Hot!" décor that is authentic and from Mexico meshes beautifully in an old historic New England building. Margaritas was originally the Concord police station and jail. In bygone years it temporarily housed some pretty shady characters; including some of the Charles Manson gang! In the main body of the restaurant the old jail cells have cleverly been converted into private dining chambers. The cell doors still there; a reminder of the buildings past.
"Hot!" menu selection that ALWAYS arrive at the table piping hot! Choices include everything from classic Mexican to salads with a bit of a twist and even a few selections for the less adventurous "Gringo" palate. Even the ice cream is "Hot!"... deep fried.
Seasonal specials début on a separate menu. All of the meal portions are generous. Very fair prices!
Margaritas also has a small, friendly sports lounge and serves much more than just margaritas. (Although that is a favorite!)
And one last "Hot!" tip: Margaritas cares. They give back to the community.

It was a Friday Night and there was a 20 Minute Wait. We Decided to Eat In the Bar Area. The Food was Not that Great, no Spice, bland! Probably would not return.

If you don't have a big, sweet, syruppy alcoholic beverage, the food is mediocre at best. Service is very slow and the burrittos taste like wrapped mush. And still there's often a long wait to get in...so it must be the drinks

This wonderful Mexican restaurant is located in downtown Concord in the former police station. You can eat in a former jail cell! The chips, salsa, and guacamole were delicious. Our entrees of enchiladas and carne asada were great. The margaritas were good too. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for good Mexican food.

I have been going there for years. I have eaten there 2x in the past 6 weeks. The first time, the food seemed "off" and not of its usual quality. Seating us was slow, even though the place seemed half empty. The food was served cold, and we actually mentioned to the mgr that the kitchen was not up to its usual quality. Went again last night, and the food was definitely poor. The server who brought our food didn't know what she was delivering. Refills of water and beverages was very slow. The food was cool and lacked a fresh taste. The bathroom was filthy, and the waste basket was overflowing with trash. Overall, the quality of food and the atmosphere demonstrated a level of neglect that we have not seen over the many years we have visited there.
