This restaurant is alive with a Mexican influence - the wall art, the bar tiles, the overall decor is wonderfully authentic - most of it comes from south of the border. The food is very fresh and prepared fresh on the premises - down to...More

Don't quite understand the bad reviews, the food is fresh and filling and the quality is decent for the price. We had some custom Margaritas made and the quality was excellent .Atmosphere was nice and lively at around 4 pm, would recommend. Order the Enchiladas!

People flock here but I think it is for the bar not the food. The food is overpriced slop. Try Agave instead.

All the margaritas have similar and good Mexican food and service. This location had a better interior decor than most. They created a more upbeat feeling than many of the other locations that have very predictable, over used Mexican designs. This was a welcome change.

Margaritas is a small chain located mainly in New Hampshire, as far as I know. Most have a similar layout with a very Mexican ambiance. They also support artists form Mexico and do some educational programs. I would give the restaurant high marks for cleanliness....More

The food is pretty much 1 star, but the atmosphere brought it up a small notch. I have eaten Mexican food in many states, many in the southwest and even in Mexico. I don't think I have ever such bad food in any of them,...More

I ordered a veggie burrito and guacamole. The quac was some of the best I've had! The veggie burrito was delish but way too big so now I have supper for tonight! Plus the waiter was friendly and quick. I'll be back here, for sure.
