“Good serviceable Mexican”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Good food, excellent margaritas, corn kitchen type Mexican with service that's a little overaggressive in the waiter's desire to please. But, for a town like Exeter, what a surprise.

“popular Tex-Mex”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

The menu seems a bit limited but the food was tasty, nothing spectacular. We eat here because its convenient and generally consistent. Service has always been very good. No complaints.

“Love Margarita's BUT ...”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

First of all I have been going to Margarita's ( first in Portsmouth, now in Exeter ) for over 20 years, still go and will continue to go. Nice place, very pleasant staff, lively bar, great drinks.
Food is good, not great but I like it. Problem being that it is very expensive for the food quality :
$ 13.49 for 2 Enchiladas, $ 9.00 for so-so tacos, $ 12 for Chile Relleno ( good not great ) etc.
Maybe they have to charge these prices to cover the overhead, hey I'm not in the restaurant
business so what do I know ? Anyway I still like it and will keep coming back.

“Very Good Food...Starting to Skimp”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

We've been going to this Margarita's for years. It is comfortable, clean, and the people are nice to deal with. The food has always been great, and until recently there was nothing to complain about.

The food is still awesome. Very flavorful. But it has become obvious in recent months that there is a concerted effort to scale back on just about everything. Our daughter used to get a balloon when she left, and those seem to be gone. The kids used to get Wiki Stix to play with, and it was always a hit, but those are gone, too. The portion sizes are WAY smaller than they used to be. Our daughter's meal came with seven french fries. Seven.

Also, they have stopped offering sour cream. How do you NOT offer sour cream at a Mexican restaurant? Instead, they have a sour cream "sauce" -- which is a nasty liquid form of something very far removed from real sour cream.

I would not put Margarita's on par with Taco Bell (as others have written), but it's headed in that direction.

“Really Great Food”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

We happened upon Margarita's during a short stay in Exeter. We were extremely pleased with the food, atmosphere and service. Of the 4 different meals on our table, not one was a disappointment. The salsa was a bit on the salty side, but otherwise, the meal was very enjoyable, including the white sangria! Portions were sizable and prices were reasonable. Our server was very helpful with ensuring that our dietary restrictions were accommodated. Should we find ourselves in the Exeter area again (which is likely) - we will definitely make Margarita's one of our stops.
