My family, friends and I like to go here because of the warm atmosphere, the food and the excellent customer service. My only complaint is that you cannot pay the bill at the table. Please add this feature and many people would love your restaurant.

You know what, there will never be a restraunt that is perfect... but this one comes close. Las Margaritas offers 2 for $6 house margarits, great chips and salsa, and it is super afforadable!

I LOVE Mexican food, but this was the blandest, chewiest chicken I've EVER had in any kind of restaurant. Service was good. Chips needed salt. No bueno:(

The fish tacos are outstanding. The place was packed. We had the best waitress and the margaritas weren't bad either.

The kids always love this place when the mariachi band is playing. We recently went there for a family birthday and had good food and lots of fun.

I've eaten at Las Margarita's many times in past years but this week was the lowest point. I ordered enchiladas, one cheese and one with ground beef. The insides were tasty but they were covered with what tasted like barbecue sauce. Sort of like Sonny's in Mexico. The sauce made them taste awful. I nearly burned myself when I tried... More

Our family party of 12+ enjoyed our dinner in this colorful space. My wife was pleased that the mariachi band knew an old song and played it well. Service was friendly and the happy hour was appreciated. Although the restaurant was full when we arrived the crowd thinned out after happy hour. Pescado Jalisco and the carne asada were very...

My wife and I were just leaving Gainesville after a brief visit and were looking for a place to have a late lunch on our way out of town. We pulled into Las Margaritas with no knowledge of the menu, prices, or anything. The timing was good as we were just in time to be able to choose from the... More

We had lunch here recently and were pleasantly surprised. We were promptly seated and enjoyed the bright, festive, colorful decor. The service was excellent and attentive. The chips were not at all greasy- warm and crisp, and the salsa was very mild (too bad for me). We had chimachangas and flautas with rice and beans, both of which were delicious.... More
