“Excellent does not even describe the food & service”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

Every bite was truly a delightful culinary experience. The salsa is unlike any other we've ever had and the queso had such flavor. I ordered the sample plate which included their tomatillo sauce. I was sold on the first bite & I'm not a tomatillo fan! Every bite was filled with delicious flavors. We completed the meal with an exquisite flan. This is definitely on the must go to restaurant list!

“Upscale Gourmet Mexican Cuisine in a Trendy, Stylish Mexican Decorated Restaurant-Muy Deliciouso!”
Reviewed May 13, 2012 via mobile

Small, restaurant in a strip center but everything about the place is first class. Not your typical Mexican food (but great traditional favorites are readily available). Sometimes the food is so pretty on the plate, you hate to eat it! I've never had anything on the menu that wasn't "above and beyond" any Mexican food restaurant in the DFW area. Beware, Margaritas aren't typical either. Keep a cab number handy if you plan to have a few.

“Great lunch spot!”
Reviewed December 7, 2011

We arrived around 11:30AM and the place was packed within 30 mins. The salsa is delicious! I had the tortilla soup with salad and was quite full... Give this place a try!

“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.
