Our family party of 12+ enjoyed our dinner in this colorful space. My wife was pleased that the mariachi band knew an old song and played it well. Service was friendly and the happy hour was appreciated. Although the restaurant was full when we arrived the crowd thinned out after happy hour. Pescado Jalisco and the carne asada were very...

My wife and I were just leaving Gainesville after a brief visit and were looking for a place to have a late lunch on our way out of town. We pulled into Las Margaritas with no knowledge of the menu, prices, or anything. The timing was good as we were just in time to be able to choose from the... More

We had lunch here recently and were pleasantly surprised. We were promptly seated and enjoyed the bright, festive, colorful decor. The service was excellent and attentive. The chips were not at all greasy- warm and crisp, and the salsa was very mild (too bad for me). We had chimachangas and flautas with rice and beans, both of which were delicious.... More

Birthday dinner at Las Margaritas. Despite a large Saturday night crowd, we (party of two) got in quickly, had chips and salsa right away, house margaritas 2 for $6, and our fajitas for two within 20 minutes after ordering. I will not try to grade the food according to my Colorado and New Mexico standards but the portions were yuge... More

Staff is always nice, food is always fast and great, and price is right. I come here often and have never been disappointed. They can handle large groups with some advance notice. They serve several drinks for all tastes.

Very festive décor (would look good in a whimsy backyard garden) Excellent Quesadillas. Plenty of food, and condiments. Owner even stopped by, very personable. Mango Daiquri was so good

On 39th Avenue with limited parking. Most employees are Mexican descent and know the food. This is in my opinion Gainesville's best Mexican restaurant. Great marguerites (order from the top shelf selection).

Slow night, so the immature staff (other than the servers) spent 95% of their time clustered in a group of 5-6 over their cellphones at the front of the restaurant. Our server was good. Everything about the food was VERY good, except for a major deal-breaker: literally every dish we ordered was horribly salty. We are people who normally find... More

I ate here last Thursday and was really disappointed. The service was poor and it took 30 minutes for the food to be served after I ordered and then the food was luke warm as if it had sat for 15-20 minutes. I have eaten here several times and it seems to get worse every time we go. Probably will... More

Our kids were visiting their friends and a cousin from UF and we decided to join them there at this restaurant. I was impressed by the layout and the decor. There were lot of choices, some familiar and some not so much. I like the pick 2 or 3 choices as a combo. I decided to go with the "... More
