This place has good food, and specially their margarita... The place is very close to the school campus and student housing, so many students visit this place often so it can be crowded at times with waiting time, so be prepared. Overall good experience.

Always good service, food has been consistent over the years. Thursday is lady's night, I think Wednesday is college night, Tuesdays is all you can eat tacos. One of my favorite meals is Chicken fajita salad with tequila lime vinaigrette dressing. This area of Orono has a parking problem.

Spending much of my life in El Paso TX I am really a snob about mexican food. This place as some pretty good mexican with real flavor. Having traveled about this country, this place is worth a try. Though the decor is a bit tacky, the service is great as are the drinks. Though they need to replace the carpet... More

Excellent selection of Tequilas and Margaritas with some creatives twists.The place was busy but the food and drinks came quickly.Enjoyed the free chips and frsh,house-made salsa with a little touch of heat.I suggest the "Fuego" sauce to give it "big kid" spice.

Our family reunion required a new venue on short notice due to last minute guests. Margaritas was very accommodating & agreed to host our very large group downstairs. THEY WERE SO PLEASANT & EFFICIENT & FOOD WAS GOOD & DESPITE INDIVIDUAL ORDERS FOR ALMOST 80 PEOPLE DELIVERED SEAMLESSLY. The challenges were that it required a number of stairs to access... More

My husband and i have frequented Margaritas for many years; however, something seems to have gone awry. Recently this spring we stopped by for dinner on a slower evening and were very disappointed wit the food once again. The quality of the food has been going down hill the last few visits. Especially the dishes with chicken. They used to... More

The drinks are yummy but the food is less than thrilling. I dont care for pureed style salsa and the guac tasted like it had been left out all day. Seems like the food comes frozen and is microwaved when ordered. Did not meet the mexican standards I was looking for.

Having lived in Bangor for many years, this was always a favorite place to got. The frozen Margaritas were excellent as was the food. I always ordered the super Burrito as I found it very very good. But the last few visits I noticed some decline both in the drinks and food. I must say the service has always been... More

True to Margarita's chain. Great fish tacos! Very clean, service was great. This is very easy to find right downtown Orono.
