I've been to most of the restaurants in the Margaritas chain, and they're all good, although my favorite is the one in nearby Portsmouth. The food, service, and margaritas are very good here, and it has a nice ambience.

We love traveling to Mexico and this is a little taste of the sounds, colors, furniture. The server was attentive and pleasant. Taco chips and salsa are complementary and delicious. A mid-afternoon lunch for 10 was pleasant and relaxing. The 4 children were happy with the kids choices and food. The 6 adults enjoyed their entrees.

Okay, I visited this place with my family. It was empty so we were helped immediately. Our staff member was great. The food a bit higher than what it should be for the quality. Also there is a weird stinch that makes it awkward to enjoy your meal. I even went back a second time in hopes that it may... More

You may be familiar with this chain Mexican restaurant and at the behest of my adult children we eat there from time to time. Standard Mexican fare is found at this convenient and popular restaurant in Exeter. I was pleased to find more vegetarian choices than the last time we were there but vegan choices are still sparse. The staff... More

I go here from time to time. I like the chicken enchiladas. The chips and salsa are great. They also have a good bar crowd.

Very nice place, parking lot is small for the size of the restaurant so don't be fooled if it looks full they will still have room inside and you can be seated rather quickly! Great food good service and drinks, nice upbeat atmosphere!.
