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!.

Have been to Margaritas several times with my family. I would say this is just an average place that offers average food. The Mexican food is OK, but nothing like the real stuff. The service has been mixed on different visits, but for the most part they try to get the food out and hot. A couple of times, the... More

The meal was served on time and it was very good. The atmosphere had an authentic feel as well. The manager asked us how our meal was and the server did a very good job. We would definitely eat here again even though there are multiple Mexican food establishments in the vicinity.

There are lots of better Tex-Mex options in this area. Food is pricey for what it is, and not very special. Wait staff is distracted and more focused on pushing drinks than getting food out of the kitchen. There appears to be more folks drinking than eating on most occasions we've been here.

Well. It's a chain restaurant. And although they specialize in Mexican food, it's lacks the flavor and spices of real Mexican food. The service was okay, even though our waitstaff had us flagging her down for forgetting utensils and napkins. Hope you have a better experience than we did.

Thank Yvonne S
