We didn’t even get to eat there. They were over booked and with a reservation the wait was 30 minutes plus. This establishment is poorly run.

Always a good time at Margaritas, food was delicious as always, and the bartender on Tuesday nights is the best! Their house Margaritas never disappoint!

Food is good, service is horrible. Went twice, won’t be back. Gauc serviced before drinks and with no chips. We must have waited at least 15 minutes to get chips to eat the Guacamole. No opportunity to order another round of drinks. Had to ask for check twice. Forget paying with credit card, server never came back. We left cash and left.

Our reservation was for 6:45. Upon arrival we were told that it will be another 20-30 wait. That is unacceptable. We were hungry and looked forward to dining here. After waiting 10 minutes I asked the young host to cancel our reservation. We walked down the street to Sangria 71 and had a great meal and drinks.

I don’t want to go into details because I know restaurants are trying to recover from the pandemic so I’ll just say I didn’t have a very good experience.

The food, ambiance and drinks are excellent. My only slight complaint as I felt my chicken dish was a little small. Only three small pieces. Very good though. And the churros dessert very small too.

Aside from the long wait to be seated despite a reservation (half hour) it was really great! I have been to Mexican restaurants that cost twice as much and the food was only half as good as margaritas! This food is excellent and so was the service. After we started our meal we did not mind waiting at all! That’s how good this restaurant is

I’ve been to several Margarita’s cafe locations and my experience is usually very different at each location. Most menu options are great but what I think should improve is portions. At my last dine in experience my plate was served with shrimp in salsa verde , the amount of shrimp was average but the portion of rice and not to mention refried beans was so minuscule it just looked like a decoration on the plate which was a little disappointing. On another note; service was great . Nothing compared to my several experiences at the Freeport location.

I had heard great things about Margarita’s Cafe and had been wanting to go for a long time. I truly enjoyed my time there! The mango margarita was delicious! We had gotten fajitas and they were very fresh and tasty. Our waiter was very friendly as well. The mariachi band was a fun touch! When the band isn’t playing they are playing music so it is a lively place. Also the decor was cute!

Last min reservation as the venue we were looking at (Cuban) had no availability. Margaritas appears to be a great place for a group of friends/family looking to have an energetic evening, not so much for a family with teens and kids just wanting a nice dinner. Booked table for 8:30 however they were so busy there wasn't even a host/hostess, stood around for some time before grabbing a waiter and waitress to ask about getting seated. After 15 mins, they had to slide a group of 2 down already dining to seat our group of 5, right at the entrance and into the aisle. The staff really tried, but they did seem unorganized with a waitress asking if anyone had take our order - seems like there's no assigned tables. Had 2 older mariachis singing Happy B'day, serenading tables.. that was entertaining though our kid/teens were embarassed.
Drinks, appetizers, and entrees were fair to good (steak and chops were overcooked), dessert was much better though I doubt it was made in house - was just happy to have dinner that late. Would I revisit - prob just as a couple looking for a lively place for drinks, but 1st experience left some to be desired

The food must be good because it was packed and the line was out the door. Unfortunately they took too many reservations on a Saturday night. We had 8:00 reservation, waited 45 minutes outside and then decided to go down the street to Sangria. At 8:55, they called and said our table was ready but it was too late.

I made a reservation here for a party of 3 and it was not honored. I even called ahead of time to confirm and they said there was a table available for me. But when I got there, there were no tables and they didn’t seem to care that I had made the reservation. In fact they pretended that they didn’t have the reservation even though I had called to confirm. They also must have known about my reservation because they verified that I showed up in OpenTable. There was at least a 20 minute wait for a table and the restaurant does not have spacious waiting room so I had to leave which was a disappointment because I enjoy the food there and have been looking forward to a fun dinner. Luckily there are nice restaurants right across the street that could accommodate us last minute.

I love this restaurant. I always enjoy the food. I gave the food 3 stars because I didn’t like my dinner. I ordered the steak and shrimp tacos. The steak didn’t taste like real steak and it wasn’t seasoned. The shrimp were very small with no taste. The guacamole was delicious. This was my first time at this restaurant and I didn’t like the food. I would advise to go and try the food, it’s usually very good. Just don’t get the tacos.

They served me undercooked chicken and I got a stomach bug from it. I could've took further action but I dont want to get anyone in trouble. I just expected better because I had a good experience the first time I came here.

Such a cute place. Ended up going for a valentines day lunch and it was great! The ambiance was so adorable and decorated for valentines, but looked like it would have a good vibe on other night. Food was super delicious and the drinks were perfect! Service was also great and attentive. Definitely recommend this place for some yummy margaritas and food!
