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 if you like it hot, get some sauce. Chips and mild salsa to start. No... More

La Margarita is located in the heart of Salem and has amazing food. They have an extensive menu and make superb enchiladas. My husband and I shared the one-person trio fajita dish (chicken, steak, and shrimp) and it was still too much food. It is nice that they have different options for the fajitas. If you order the one-person option,... More

We've been going to La Margarita for years. We enjoy the chile rellenos, chicken suiza, chicken mole, pork "Jibarito", shrimp dishes, and the chips and salsa. There's a wide assortment of meals and, unlike some other mexican restaurants we've tried, the meals have fresh taste that is not overpowered by cheese or gravy. It's well worth several visits to try... More
