Nice casual local restaurant with good Mexican food. Nothing fancy just the usual burritos, tacos, fajitas, enchiladas etc. Good for kids and families. Fast and friendly service. Lots of parking available. A go to if hungry and want it casual and quick.

What a surprise! We were delighted with the excellent service, but the food was remarkable. I had the enchilada, chili releno combination plate with Mexican rice and refried beans. The serving size if ample for two, and it was very authentic. They have a good choice in beers and mixed drinks. We were there for dinner on the recommendation of... More

Food was fine, typical Mexican menu. Frozen margarita was good. Dined with five other people and the noise level was terrible. Could not hear without shouting. Parking is limited. Ok for dining, but not for meeting or socializing.

We’ve been going to Margaritas since 1981, but had not been there in a long time. I ordered the cheese enchilada with beans and rice $9.29 which I do in many Mexican restaurants. I’m in a rut. The beans were very bland; the rice had no flavor and the cheese was not melted well in the enchilada. They could have... More

Margarita's is no better or worse than the handful of non-chain Mexican restaurants in the immediate area. It lacks the noise and gambling/horse-race crowd of Pepper's in Arcadia, and the limited convenient parking that Sierra Madre's Casa del Rey has to live with, so that may give it a leg up. The weekday buffet is a good deal, and the... More

We used to go to Margarita's all the time. Then we moved and went elsewhere. After that restaurant moved, went back to Margarita's. They serve really good margaritas, chips, and salsa. But the food is really good too. I like chile rellenos and soft tacos and usually order a la carte. It is our new favorite Mexican restaurant in Pasadena.

Good Mexican food and great Margaritas. I love coming to this restaurant for Taco Tuesdays, only $1.60 each of most any kind. The service is good. The waitresses are pleasant, if not too attentive, but the busboys are great, always checking for refills of chips and salsa and soft drinks. It can get crowded at dinner, but large enough seating...
