What I enjoy about La Margarita is the fact the meat is grilled over an open fire. It adds a nice taste to the food. The Express is quick and good for lunch. The portions are just right to return to work satisfied.

oil covers EVERYTHING. the tapas taste good but the obsessive amounts of oil detracts from the experience. I want to eat food, not just olive oil

We've been going here for years. Food is always fresh, as are the drinks. They have a great selection of tequila, and also have tastings.
We both had a Relleno combination this time and it was excellent.
They have very good Huevos Rancheros, but they are not on the menu.
Correct address is 545 Ferry St. SE...Salem

When the restaurant opened under new management the food quality wasn't that great. Now the restaurant has found it's way again and the food quality is great, the prices are good, and the service is consistently good. Peak lunch rush will get you in and out in about 40 minutes, so try to go before 12 or after 1 to get in and out. Also open for dinner too, but not crowded for dinner.
