Took my niece and nephew here for the lunch. It was great! They give you nice chips an salsa when you sit We ordered empandas as a appetizer. We were a little disappointed that there were only two but we shared them 4 ways. The empanada itself was good, but the sauce that was on it was amazing. There was... More

Great dining experience. Only downside is parking can be scarce. They do have valet sometimes. But the times they don't finding a spot can be annoying. Restaurant is clean and staff is diligent. Highly recommend the table side guacamole.

I stumbled into this little place because it was Super Bowl Sunday and I had to be in the area for a client early the next day. I was craving Mexican at a bar with a TV. Who would have known this would become such a staple in my routine moving forward. The area sort of has a serious lack... More

Local place with several locations - the one is East Meadow is one of the largest. Great drinks, live mariachi band, superb Mexican food....but don't go wanting to have a conversation with your table mates - noise level is extremely high. Be prepared to wait for a table, especially on weekends, but enjoy a great cocktail and hang out at... More

Very "happening" mexican restaurant in East Meadow.Plenty parking and great bar with pretty bartenders offering excellent Margaritas. Good beer selection. The food is consistent and well prepared. Great fajitas and well design Cheviche. The mariachi band makes the restaurant like a Mexican Fiesta.

I come here several times a year. The food is always excellent and the service is great. The portions are very generous for the price you are paying. Drinks are available in this restaurant and are a little overpriced, but worth it when you want to have a drink with dinner. this place is worth checking out.

Good authentic Mexican food at very reasonable prices. The staff aims to please and is eager to answer questions about the menu. The restaurant is narrow and limited on space but the decor is filled with vibrant lively colors. The table side guacamole can be prepared to your liking, mild, medium or hot. Our guacamole needed to be mixed more... More

We recently went to Margarita Cafe in East Meadow for dinner with friends. We arrived around 5 which was perfect, we had our choice of seats. The restaurant quickly filled up. I had the combination plate and it couldn't have been better. My husband had the Paella which was piled with seafood and seasoned perfectly. Although the restaurant was crowded... More

Fine Mexican cuisine in an elegant and modern environment. Our decorations and food make you feel like you are on vacation. We serve Long Island's best margaritas and have a live Mariachi band Friday thru Sundays. Having a special event? Bring your guests to Margarita's for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries etc.
