“Favorite continental Mexican restaurant”
Reviewed November 1, 2011

La Margarita is tucked away in a strip shopping center only 2 miles from DFW International Airport. We go there almost every Friday night for the dinner special created by the owner's son - a chef who is also opening a new restaurant farther West in a much more exclusive area. We can find Tex-Mex here along with the weekend special that may include beef or pork tenderloin with fresh grilled vegetables and chipotle mashed potatoes. So satisfying and beautifully presented. A great neighborhood favorite, you can often find the family birthday celebration, or the romantic tete-a-tete at nearby tables. Reservations accepted for large parties only. The bar at the back of the restaurant serves amazing drinks including sangria made with Spanish wine, brandy, and fresh fruit slices. Dining here is like going home whether or not you're Latin.
