This is a fun take on Mexican food- it's definitely Mexican (they've got all the standards: burritos, enchiladas, etc. etc.) but you've definitely not landed at an authentic Mexican eatery. Great place for kids!

We love Marinitas!! Awesome mini tacos. Excellent margaritas. Fun, upbeat environment. It can get really busy so go early or make a reservation.

Great menu choices and the fish tacos were the best tacos I've ever eaten. Soft shelled tacos filled with cod and coleslaw. Looks great inside and the seating is soooo comfortable! I'd definitely eat there again!

Marinitas features a menu inspired by dishes found throughout Mexico and Latin America using local and seasonal products. Through the collaboration of Heidi Krahling and Frank Villa, Marinitas delivers Latin focused lusciousness that is an exciting blend of the new and the familiar. The wine list mainly draws from the expansive selections of the best wine makers from Argentina and Chile. Cocktails focus on the silver and gold liquors of Central and South America. The bar is dedicated to classic cocktail preparations including citrus juice squeezed to order, house made sweet and sour made from unrefined cane sugars, along with the highest quality mixers. Beers include a full Mexican selection from light Lagers to dark regional Latin micro-brewed Ales.
