We come to this restaurant for the great tasting Mexican food. We come whenever one of our group has a birthday, have plenty space to sit together and eat wonderful food for hours. Great for parties.

My wife and I had dinner at La Margarita on a Tuesday. The table service was very pleasant. Upon ordering our meal was in front of us in 5 minutes! I've waited longer at "fast food" restaurants. Food was good. Very mild in spice. So...More
