Been here many times but every time the margaritas are the same...AMAZING. I had shrimp this time too, it was yummy! The Guac is outstanding and the atmosphere is fun but you can still hear the conversation at your table.

I like La Margarita for lunch. They have a great Chips and salsa offering, and there is always something good on the menu. Their fish tacos are always a good choice. When the weather is nice and their patio is open, this is a great spot for Fountain Square people watching!

I knew this place when it was on the Northside of Indy 30 years ago. They were great then. Now they moved to the gentrifying Fountain Square area and are even better! Their chili con queso is out of this world (literally). They do something to it to give it a tomato base (?) but it works and is incredible.... More

The atmosphere was awesome. A beautiful afternoon and we sat outside. The house margarita was all sour mix and $8 (seriously)... I think the tequila was not added! The guacamole was very good! Chips were tasteless. Chicken quesadilla was unremarkable. Service was poor. The company was awesome. I was with my sisters!

They have an impressive Liquor menu and the service was perfect. Nice location in Fountain Square also. The highlight though is the food quality. Not the franchise Mexican you are used to. Its not greasy and the 3 different salsas w thicker tortilla chips are worth the extra couple bucks we spent here. Highly recommended.

Date night ruined! Only thing good was the chips and salsa, guacamole was tasty. Other than that, shrimp tequila was strange, especially the stained carrot potato mixture. The quesadilla tasted like pizza sauce and bread, would not recommend to anyone. First and last visit all rolled into one!

Last week when we were in Indianapolis we were staying near the Fountain Square area and looking for a place for dinner and we met a couple on the street and they recommended La Margarita. We’re glad we went. We had a great meal. My friend and I started with their beefy queso dip which we liked so much that... More

I think this is the best Mexican restaurant in Indy. Food is always excellent and they are kid-friendly. Margaritas are the best in town; just absolutely delicious! This is a true gem in Fountain Square.
