First time staying in Peru, my hotel was right next to (walking distance) to a Mexican Restaurant named Jalapeno's but when I walked in it didn't have a bar (eating single on the road) so I went down the street to Mi Margarita. I was there on Margarita night ($3 margarita's), service was very good, salsa was delicious and so... More

We went around the 6pm dinner hour and there were several people in the restaurant. Not overcrowded. The food was good and the service was good. I thought there margaritas were tasty. The salsa was a bit runny for my liking. Overall it is a good place to eat.

The staff and service alone keeps you going back!! Great people and the food is delicious!! My only advice is to not over eat the chips and salsa because the food portions are huge! You will leave stuffed! Oh ya by the way there margaritas are hands down the best around!

I've been going to Mi Margaritas for about 20 years. The wait staff are consistently friendly and efficient. The food is always good and served in a timely manner. I would recommend the fajitas, but all of it is good. The fried ice cream is delicious. The margaritas are very tasty and come in a variety of flavors. It is... More

Back in Peru with another chance for a good Mexican meal and we just happen to go on Tuesday when the margaritas were just $3.00. I had the Mole Enchilada with chicken. Best mole sauce. Husband had Carne Asada Tampiquena. Delicious. Friendly staff. Local hangout.
