We were told no reservations for a group of 10. However when we arrived we were told a group had called and made a reservation? Such a great place with poor policies! You lost a long term customer today

Good quality Mexican food with a wide range of local beers. Prices were quite reasonable and the food was authentic.

We're long time fans - I mean LONG time fans - more than twenty-six years. La Margarita became a fixture in Indianapolis among fans of Mexican food in its original location: on 30th Street, at the north edge of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. A lunchtime favorite of downtown businessmen and women, it also developed a passionate following among the Indy... More

Been here many times but every time the margaritas are the same...AMAZING. I had shrimp this time too, it was yummy! The Guac is outstanding and the atmosphere is fun but you can still hear the conversation at your table.

I like La Margarita for lunch. They have a great Chips and salsa offering, and there is always something good on the menu. Their fish tacos are always a good choice. When the weather is nice and their patio is open, this is a great spot for Fountain Square people watching!

I knew this place when it was on the Northside of Indy 30 years ago. They were great then. Now they moved to the gentrifying Fountain Square area and are even better! Their chili con queso is out of this world (literally). They do something to it to give it a tomato base (?) but it works and is incredible.... More

The atmosphere was awesome. A beautiful afternoon and we sat outside. The house margarita was all sour mix and $8 (seriously)... I think the tequila was not added! The guacamole was very good! Chips were tasteless. Chicken quesadilla was unremarkable. Service was poor. The company was awesome. I was with my sisters!

They have an impressive Liquor menu and the service was perfect. Nice location in Fountain Square also. The highlight though is the food quality. Not the franchise Mexican you are used to. Its not greasy and the 3 different salsas w thicker tortilla chips are worth the extra couple bucks we spent here. Highly recommended.
