We had meals here both nights we were in Ely - and we all enjoyed the food. It was good value - and the service was always friendly. I probably should leave a more detailed review, but the simple fact is we all walked away...More

Very good to excellent Mexican cuisine. Very friendly and helpful staff. Salsa basic, but tasty. Typical menu items. Decoration includes a wonderful assortment of wall plates from Mexico. Restaurant is located inside the Prospector Hotel and Casino

This place is very over-rated. I had breakfast and the dish was not very good. Even in this small town, there are better places to eat.

We returned to Margaritas for a great lunch. Service is very good and the food is yummy. This is among our favorite places in Ely.

We ordered from the Mexican menu not the steak menu. Food was fresh and good but not remarkable. Decor is nice but not fancy. Service was good and food arrived quickly. I would eat here again.

The name Margaritas is right on because the Margaritas there are excellent. The service and the food was also excellent. They serve "regular" breakfasts, lunch and dinner.
