A word from Las Margaritas
At Las Margaritas you'll find what's been called the city's best salsa and margaritas, as well as the largest tequila selection in B.C. Las Margaritas serves up hearty portions and the price range is hard to beat.

Owner Dan Rodriguez and general manager Rolando Guardia serve food more from the north of Mexico, Baja and California. Rodriguez frequently visits Mexico, Southern California and the Baja to make sure his restaurant keeps up with current trends in Mexican food and drinks.

Diner Reviews
  • "All our food was cold and dry. The kids food was good but the rest of the food was dry, stale, and unseasoned. They have all these best food awards on the wall but didn't taste it. Have had better food and service at Taco Bell!!! Will not be returning here for the cold food or warm beer."

  • "Absolutely LOVE the Prawn Tacos and Summer Salad (worth the $1 substitution charge). Don't make the mistake of ordering the regular margarita - you're going to want the large or monster!"

  • "Service was slow. Food was just below ordinary. Nice location; atmosphere and decor were great. Will not be returning anytime soon."

  • "Nice place -- we wanted to sit outside and it was the reason we went there--it has a nice patio--even though it had stopped raining earlier the patio was still closed. It was busy and noisy inside but overall nice restaurant. Good pomegranate margarita."

  • "Three of us dined here on a Wednesday evening. The patio was packed! Just a 'heads up', Open Table reservations are for INSIDE ONLY. It doesn't say that; you just find out when you arrive. We were told if we wanted patio seating, it would be a 20 minute wait. We had tickets to a show (which I included in the comment of the reservation along with the fact we were celebrating two birthdays - no mention of either) so waiting was not an option, hence the reservation! Anyway, margaritas and food were delicious. Enjoyed the Prawn Tacos, subbed the standard salad for the Summer Salad for an additional $1. One friend had a chicken taco salad while the other enjoyed her favorite, Quattro. Margaritas all around, virgin for our driver and we were set"

  • "The only thing that my friend had asked was to get the same meat in the taco as you used to serve with a past favorite "taco's for two". Unfortunately the waitress thought it was the same, but it was not. In any case the food is alway good."

  • "My husband and I went for dinner on Sat eve...I had been many years ago but my husband had never been there. Took a little bit of coaxing as we live in Surrey, but it was well worth the drive!! The servers were very friendly and service was quick despite the restaurant being really busy. Food was hot and so yummy! Husband had combo 2 and i had chicken chimichanga....Portions were large and I was upset that I wasnt able to finish my dinner because it was so good! They will pack up a doggie bag with your leftovers if you like. I have nothing bad to say about our experience or the food....we even found out they have a kids menu so will be taking the kids with us next time!"

  • "We had made reservations earlier that day for 530pm. When we got there there was a huge line to get in & even though we told them we had a reso we weren't seated for 10 min. The waitress was speedy enough but our drinks/food took a very long time & the main sounds we heard while we were there were Waitresses calling for people who were waiting. I order the vegetarian fajita burrito & asked for it to be dairy-free but when she brought my meal the side salad had cheese on it... Didn't quite think through that. Didn't bother returning it because I knew it would take a very long time to get it back. Not the place for vegans for sure but I can't at all speak for meat eaters... My boyfriend seemed to enjoy his, but the side dishes were lacking."

  • "We love Mexican food and are always on the hunt for great / somewhat authentic Mexican restaurant. We enjoyed our enchiladas and the classic margaritas. The Chile Rellenos were poor. They were mushy and tasted like a freezer. Our waitress was nice but had no knowledge of the menu. We would have sat much longer and ordered a second drink or dessert but neither were offered. "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "The four of us enjoy coming here; the food, service and ambience are something we can count on. Though, the one problem we had was their credit card network crashed, after which they could only accept cash in payment. While we don't expect the problem to reoccur when we next visit; I'd like to think the owners respond to this wake-up call proactively. "

  • "A great local Mexican food hangout. More "North American expected Mexican" than authentic Mexican, but it's been around forever and the approach and food still work just fine. Cheerful, friendly, noisy, with great Margaritas (try the Rosarita), as one would expect!!"
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Four of us went out for dinner together, we were hoping for an authentic Mexican cuisine, this was not the case. All of our food was very bland and tasteless and two of us only ate half of our meals because of this. The service was descent and the margaritas were good, but we will never dine their again."

  • "It had been years since our last visit and we were happy to discover the food and service were great and exactly how we remembered it! Recommend reservations."

  • "I was going to order the beef fajitas but decided to try some a bit more traditional, the Mole Oaxaqueño. The accompanying dark sauce was a bit heavy on the chocolate, the menu indicated it was supposedly to be prepared with two chicken breasts, instead received one that was attached to a small drum. My partner's vegetarian fajitas were good though, the side dishes the came with both meals, the Mexican rice and refried beans were good as well. We ordered the traditional white cake for desert as take out that we could share, surprisingly very small piece given the price."

  • "We had a wonderful time! The food was good the service was great and fun was had by all! I would go again in a heartbeat."

  • "We have been going to Las Margarita's for many years and we are never disappointed with the food or the service. The food is always fresh and flavourful. The service is fast, but they don't make you feel like they just want to turn the table. The best Mexican Food restaurant in Vancouver."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "When I made this reservation online, I couldn't reserve a table at the disired time at 6:00 pm or 6:30 pm. I phoned the restaurant, and the staff who answered the call said he couldn't change the time because all the tables were reserved at that time period. It'd be nice if he offere me the option of calling me later on if someone has cancelled 6:00 pm to 6:30 pm dinner reservation. When we arrived, the staff was courteous and asked us if we'd like a Dine Out Vancouver menu or a regular menu. When we were being sitted, I notieced right away that the tables weren't full, and there weren't that many patrons checking in after 6:00 pm as a few tables were empty. Our waiter was prompt and courteous, and the food was delicioius."

  • "We first attended Las Margaritas in 1983 when we were in Vancouver on our honeymoon. After all these years we still enjoyed the restaurant and would definitely go back again!"
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "When we arrived we were told Dine Out didn't start till 5 yet we had booked through Dine Out so they brought the menu. Food was quick, plentiful and tasty and our waitress was very attentive. Tables are close together so a different waiter knocked my chair every time he went by which became annoying."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "The best part of the dineout experience were the chops and salsa. We didn't know that additional chips and salsa cost extra but it was worth it because it was really good - just wish that the server notified us about this as a courtesy. Overall, the dine-out menu was average, the dessert (churros) tasted stale and the cake was quite sweet. The service was non-existent and we were quite disappointed because other times have been better"
    Dined on 1/28/2014
  • "We had a great meal here, like we always do. We've been a few times always with great food. We participated in DineOut and so tried some new dishes that we'd never had before and are really glad we did. We always just get our favourites but now we know we've been missing a lot of other great options. We look forward to returning and trying out some other new dishes!"

  • "I thought the Dine Out Vancouver menu food was very good. However, I think the food I usually order (enchiladas and burritos) is excellent!"

  • "A hectic Friday night slowed service initially, but the waitress proved to be efficient and personable once the salsa and chips arrived. The DOV menu is the same as last year's; but that's a good thing, as it is totally enjoyable. All four of us ordered differently and wed all loved everything. Wish the main courses were available on the regular menu. This is a favourite haunt of ours because the food is great and affordable."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "It's been few years since I last came here, needless to say our experience was a dismal dissapointment.It was the first night of Dine Out Vancouver so it was full house and the waiter although was polite we had to wait a long time for him, every time. The food tasted very bland / too fried. It was very loud, but comes with the ambience I guess. Looking forward to the desert (Milk Cake) but when we ordered it, the waiter said they were out of them, and could get the Churros if we wished. It seemed he didnt care either way. They definetely gone down in quality of Mexican food, and we will probably never come back again. We came from outside the area-felt it wasnt worth the trip for the service and food. They need to value their new customers"

  • "I ordered the sope and asked if it could be made without meat. The waitress sighed and said, "Nope. No substitutions." I questioned her, she said she would check to see if it was okay. She never did return to let me know if it was or not, but it came out without meat on it. Sope was definitely good. I had the roasted vegetable enchilada with tomatillo sauce, rice, and refried black beans. The enchilada was okay - vegetables were unevenly roasted, so some were squishy and some were crunchy, which made for an unpleasant mouthfeel. Sauce was great. Rice was white rice with corn in it and the refried beans were just hot beans with cotija sprinkled on top. We also didn't get hot sauce."

  • "This eatery is has a fun environment fit for a bunch of friends to go for some drinks and laughter. However, the food was just okay. I've been here a few times, the most recent visit was for Dine Out Vancouver. The restaurant was almost at capacity. It definitely has a good vibe and it's a great place to go for drinks, especially margaritas, but I wish the food was better."
