“So disappointed...”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

Have had lunch here many times and it was good, tried dinner and it was horrible. They had a large party in the back and nobody but them got any service. The food was good - after the 45 min wait, and a reminder for all of it.

“Great local dining”
Reviewed 30 September 2013 via mobile

We met relatives at La Margarita who live in Salem. It is one of those local gems the natives know about. In addition to the standard Mexican menu items, there were a host of dishes one doesn't typically find on the menu. It wad hard to decide what to order! Portions are large. We could have easily shared.

“Different twist on South of the Border Fare”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

What I enjoy about La Margarita is the fact the meat is grilled over an open fire. It adds a nice taste to the food. The Express is quick and good for lunch. The portions are just right to return to work satisfied.

“oil, oil everywhere”
Reviewed 20 December 2012

oil covers EVERYTHING. the tapas taste good but the obsessive amounts of oil detracts from the experience. I want to eat food, not just olive oil
