Golden Margarita Bar & Grill
Cuisines: Mexican
Restaurant details
Reviewed 23 April 2013

They (The Golden Margarita) offered the worst semblance of Mexican food I had ever had. The place is now called Bistro 31. Another dining dining experiment on Big Pine that is destined to fail also unless they get their act together soon.

after taking 20 minutes to get served (10 of which the table was not even bussed), we finally ordered 4 tacos from the waitress who could not even speak english. the yuengling draft was stale (keg lines not cleaned). a bum out of the mangroves came up and hassled me while as i paid my hard-earned money for -at best- lower end - mediocre food - the quality of which could be found in any monroe county public school lunchroom . i left disgusted and no attempt was even made to give me a discount or something to came back (they really do not care about the customer- they just want the money in the winter season as nobody goes there in the summer). i am a local and live, own property , and own a business right here in big pine key. i will NEVER - under ANY circumstance, set foot in that place again! i will got to boondocks, etc. they CONSTANTLY REFUSE TO HIRE ANY HELP OUTSIDE OF THEIR FAMILY and hence, THEIR SERVICE SUX!

p.s. the 3 am trip to the toilet after the meal further solidify all of the aforementioned.

Really average, but not bad if you are in the mood for Mexican food. The owners are very nice. Service good, food good, prices good.

We didn't think it was possible to mess up mexican food, but this has to be the worst mexican food we ever had...The place is dirty, the benches are all torn with stuffing coming out, I won't even mention the trip to the restroom or the peek in the kitchen! We can't figure out how this place even stays in business, unless they ply people with really cheap liquor and they don't notice the tasteless food! Ugh! Don't bother...if you want good tacos, drive a little further south to KW and go to Amigos or Rum Barrel!

This restaurant started out good......then it seemed like everything changed. When they first opened I was never charged for chips and salsa,......now, you are charged - and I always order an entree. The guacamole, cheese and sour cream servings on the fajita order used to be enough for a little on each fajita, now you get about 1/2 teaspoon of each - barely enough for half of your order. If you ask for more, you are charged. The prices have gone up and the portions have gone way down. Not sure what is going on but I won't be back. The food doesn't have traditional Mexican flavor. It's just not that good!!!
