Our waitress was friendly and nice but the restaurant was dark and the lamp above our table didn't look like it had been cleaned - ever. I ordered basic cheese enchilada, rice and beans and the food was barely lukewarm, rice stale, cheese in enchiladas was not melted, clumpy. I wish I could uneat the picking I did of my... More

The food here was very good, as was the service. The restaurant and the restrooms were clean. We enjoyed the home town atmosphere and decor. The tables had ads and business cards for local places embedded in Lucite and the walls had photos of famous (Clint Eastwood, Sandra Locke) and not-as-famous (a former Miss USA from NM) on the walls.

Good things first; plenty of food, good price, fresh chicken in my enchilada con queso, good rice, fresh tea. Very efficient waitress. We also saw people eating American food (fried chicken and French fries) and it looked great. Bad things; my husband did not like his chimichanga, and his beans were dry. Biggest complaint was the salsa...unless you like extra... More

We were in town to see White Sands National Monument. We had dinner here. We were early so the place was not crowded, just us. I had the tamale dinner and my wife the enchaladas. Both of us enjoyed our dinners. Our waitress was polite and attentive. Also, Margos seems to be a sponsor of several juvenile sports teams. There... More

We had not been here in a few years so my husband and I thought we would give it another try. Frozen chile rellenos, canned beans and runny chicken taco. Not good and way overpriced. Still disappointed.

Nothing overly special about it other that the food was very good and the service was good with the people being friendly and pleasant. A good place to eat.

We went there for a lunch on a Monday. The restaurant is so dark inside. No windows and the atmosphere was like a graveyard or the waiting room of my dentist. The place was full of people but really quiet. We ordered of the lunch menu and the food was so bland. I was really disappointed. Apparently Clint Eastwood visited... More

When I travel, I like to seek out local restaurants and support the local economy. We passed a number of restaurant chains before we found Margo's tucked away on a side street. We arrived at the restaurant at 10:55. I asked what time lunch would be served. I was told lunch began at 11AM therefore I asked to see the... More

Margo's is a very friendly and clean . It has the atmosphere of being family friendly and is very welcoming. The salsa and chips are out of bounds awesome! The heat was perfect (for me). I highly recommend the #1 Margo Special either the green sauce. The chili rellano was awesome! I'm very pleased with the service and the pricing... More
