We needed a quick light lunch after playing tourist in Tombstone, Cafe Margarita was just perfect. The margaritas are tasty and the wait staff are pleasant. A distinct bonus was that they had an outdoor patio where we could bring our dog with us.

Nice atmosphere on the outdoor patio. Food was good, although better enchiladas exist. They seemed a bit light on the cheese. The salsa served with the tortilla chips was exceptional. Sonoran hot dog was good - nice to have variety.

We ended up going to lunch here even though my group and I hadn't planned to eat there. The day we were in Tombstone it was raining and quite cold outside so we ducked in to get coffee and drinks, then decided on the spur of the moment to eat because it smelled so good. They seated us quickly considering... More

We should've known better when they have Mexican, Italian, and burgers on their menu. I had the chicken chimichanga , it tasted like they opened a can of chunked chicken and threw it in a tortilla. The upside was the wait staff. Our waitress was very kind and cutely dressed.
