I was hoping to find it here. Unfortunately, this is just another decent but not great neighborhood restaurant. Service was good, atmosphere was nice, but the food is just OK, not great. Satisfying but not memorable. The search continues.

This food is so fresh that every dish is amazing. I took a grad student of mine there a couple years ago and he exclaimed, "These beans are fresh!" I said "How do you know?" He said, "I'm Mexican!" He was living in Pasadena and...More

Group of 4 came here for dinner. Nice looking restaurant with bar area and tv's. Friendly and attentive service. Patron Margaritas went down smooth. Good selection of beverages. Chili verde plate was good, nothing out of this world, but good. Shrimp fajitas was very tasty....More

Nice casual local restaurant with good Mexican food. Nothing fancy just the usual burritos, tacos, fajitas, enchiladas etc. Good for kids and families. Fast and friendly service. Lots of parking available. A go to if hungry and want it casual and quick.

Food was fine, typical Mexican menu. Frozen margarita was good. Dined with five other people and the noise level was terrible. Could not hear without shouting. Parking is limited. Ok for dining, but not for meeting or socializing.

We ate a late dinner after the Rose Bowl. We found Margarita's very quiet, authentic, and friendly. Service was great!!! Chips were freshly made and HOT......also great salsa.

We’ve been going to Margaritas since 1981, but had not been there in a long time. I ordered the cheese enchilada with beans and rice $9.29 which I do in many Mexican restaurants. I’m in a rut. The beans were very bland; the rice had...More

Margarita's is no better or worse than the handful of non-chain Mexican restaurants in the immediate area. It lacks the noise and gambling/horse-race crowd of Pepper's in Arcadia, and the limited convenient parking that Sierra Madre's Casa del Rey has to live with, so that...More

There were many large groups there, so your party of 8 shouldn't be a problem. Have no idea about air conditioning.....we were there in January.
