Not much to right home about. Food is fair, Prices could be better for what you get. Heavy smell of smoke

We are from Southern CA, so we are admittedly spoiled when it comes to Mexican food. The food here was pretty good. The Cadillac margarita I ordered was excellent! It's a good thing...if you are going to name your restaurant Margaritas, your margaritas better be awesome! Service was excellent!

If you are staying in the hotel, Margaritas is very convenient as it is in the hotel. The food is average. The staff is very friendly and service is good. I am not sure I would go there if I was not staying in the hotel.

Along with the good food and large portions, the staff here was very friendly and welcoming. I had a creamy shrimp dish that was recommended by the waitress. It was so rich and delicious! Great recommendation.

Fajitas were great! The service was slow but nice and the margaritas were yummy! And the prices were good. For a really run down town this was the best spot.

Perfect size servings and a good kid's menu. I loved the decor and the service was friendly. Huevos Rancheros were great and the beanswere authentic, not from a can.

Usually the farther from the border the less authentic is the food. We eat here every year traveling from So Cal to Idaho. IT IS GOOD!! It is priced right with a lot of gringo food choices for those that are not adventurous. Try it. You'll like it.
