Enjoyed lunch with local friends at Margaritas. Menu offered a large range of choices. Service staff were attentive and professional. Food was out promptly and was plentiful and tasty. Will definitely go back!

We have eaten breakfast here before and we did this time. We decided to try the Mexican food for dinner. The nacho plate was great and so were the Margaritas, I also had the enchiladas and they were very good

Margaritas is the in-house restaurant at the Prospector. They offer both Mexican and American choices, but once we looked at the menu, we both went Mexican. The hostess and waitress were excellent, service was pleasant and timely, food was terrific, and we both took leftovers back to the room. Onc

Great chips and salsa, everything else was just ok. We were there on A busy night, so there was some excuse for the lack of attention to service. Our entrees were good, not great. Overall an average meal.

On our first night in town, we visited the Prospector Hotel and Casino, with the purpose of eating in Margaritas. Service was very very good, and the food was very good as well. Portions were good sized. We will def come back for another meal. Lunch perhaps.

Claudia is the best server! The margaritas are the bomb. We go for breakfast, lunch and dinner. All the staff is kind, friendly and never forgets us.

Family style Mexican restaurant currently located inside Prospector hotel on main street. Nice decor with old model trains displayed. Children's menu is nice touch as my family includes 3 grandchildren. Free chips and salsa (mild and hot) served upon seating. Service was prompt and portions large. I found the food bland but maybe it's intended that way. Would recommend to... More

Great Salsa. Ate dinner and breakfast. It was okay. Tables need to be leveled, so was distracting from the experience.
