Have been to this restaurant a few different times. Twice the food and service were good. But then the last time we were in, everything was beyond terrible. They didn't have half the things we tried to order (as a party of three) and when we did finally find something to order that they had, it was not very good.... More

Went in on a Saturday night for dinner with another couple. The restaurant was practically empty. The food tasted like frozen Mexican out of the freezer aisle. The service was slow. Ordered drinks and they never showed up. GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!

Have been here two times in the last year, lousy each time. There will not be a third. Chimichanga tonight was horribly greasy and bland, wife's tacos were not bad. Chips seemed old and stale to me. We were only ones in restaurant. Hannah, our server did a good job. Food is really bad, many more choices in town that... More

My girlfriend and I decided to give Margaritas a shot despite some negative reviews on here due to our desire to eat outside around the square on a beautiful Saturday evening. As some others have said, the location is the best thing about the restaurant. Everything else is average or below average. The place was not busy but the service... More

This place is centrally located downtown on the square, which is the high point of this restaurant. There just isn't any consistency. I used to go every week for lunch with some of my coworkers and while the service wasn't perfect, the food was pretty good. Recently they got rid of their lunch menu and started trying to charge for... More

The food was just ok, a little disappointing that we had to pay for chips and salsa, they do not offer them to you. Food was a little bland, but the staff was very nice and the atmosphere was friendly..

I wanted to like this place. Great location, neat decor. But......i was not impressed. I have never had such bland food. I was desperately looking for something to add some flavor. Server seemed clueless.Even the salsa was bland. Will not be back

There is nothing to report that is good inthis place. Disorganized, messy, un-clean and service that consists of takin your order and delivering it ...with much delay. This is what the web site tells you about the place "Margaritas Bar & Grill is focused on providing a high quality dine-in experience and customer satisfaction" High quality? come on it is... More
