my family in I were searching for an open restaurant on 12/26 and much to our amazement found this excellent restaurant ..the menu is extensive, the prices are reasonable (especially for bar items) and the service was nothing short of great..make a point of discovering this restaurant just south of 1-80 on 72 nd and you wont be disappointed.

I give this 5 stars for the value. If you are looking for fine dining, this isn't the place. If you are looking for a simple mexican meal and a margarita, this is definately the place! Great tasting margarita's (who'd of thought?!? lol) Good food at a good price with good service. No complaints here.

Go ahead and try the pineapple with a top shelf. Fresh beef flauntas dish is delicious (preferred the beef more than chicken) if you like taquitos try and add a flaunta. Complimentary chips and salsa upon arrival. Bar, Table, and booth seating areas.

We've passed by Margarita's across from Menards on 72nd Street over and over. We were looking for a new place on the way home to Papillion from Baxter Arena, and decided to do a u-turn and try Margarita's. The first thing you notice is the nice cantina atmosphere, adorned with nice paintings and colorful booths. The service was very prompt... More

The foods great but do not order a pitcher of Margaritas. They fill and pack the pitcher so full of ice that if you took all the ice out of it, you may have a half a glass of the actual margarita. And for the price of a pitcher, which is around $15, don't bother. The funny thing is, I... More

Very authentic Mexican food. They seat you and bring you warm chips with home made salsa which is very very good. The wait time between ordering and getting the food is pretty quick and the food is always hot and consistently pleasing. The wait staff could be a little friendlier and smile. They sort of act like they have to... More

The service and atmosphere were nice. Having a late lunch, we were not surprised that the restaurant was nearly empty. I ordered a tamale, an enchilada, and a taco. The waiter brought us warm tortilla chips and delicious salsa prior to our food being served. Good food at a decent price. Definitely a place I'll return to.

Nice atmosphere, authentic. Bean and cheese dip was great. Chimichanga was full of chicken. Enchiladas with mole sauce were a hit. Good rice and beans. We will be back!

We liked Margarita's because it was conveniently close to us, and because they had OK chicken mole and flan. But I will not go back after tonight. We had a coupon good through May 30th (today is May 27th). I showed the coupon to the server and he looked worried and said he had to check with the manager. The... More
