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.

It was my birthday and I wanted some good Mexican food. (2 adults, 1 well behaved 6 yr old). Restaurant was busy which we took as a good sign. Got seated and our waiter, an older guy, seemed disengaged. Not rude just going through the motions. Didn't write our order down and got my granddaughter's wrong. Stuff happens and her meal was replaced. Food was awful, portions small and way overpriced. We've eaten in the Yucatan and Las Margaritas was not even close. I had the chicken loco, the chicken breast was small, overcooked and dry, rather tasteless and came with a small salad and a small portion of black beans for $18.95. I had enchiladas, ate half and brought the rest home for the dog. $7 for a Corona and it didn't even come with a slice of lime, I had to ask for it and the waiter brought it in his hand! Absolutely awful service and food. Will not be returning and cannot recommend.

The strawberry (slush) margarita was soooooo good! The mango margarita wasn’t bad either but a bit sour compared to the strawberry one. Gosh I’m daydreaming about it now!!!

The free nacho was also yum and served warm, and I liked the jalapeño poppers, it had cream cheese inside! The chicken quesadilla tasted like tuna though lol

I hadn’t been there in many years so it was good to return. I enjoyed my meal while I was catching up with an old friend. The food, service, and ambiance was great. I will definitely go back there again, and hopefully sooner next time!

I’ve always enjoyed Las Margaritas, so it was an easy choice for my birthday celebration. I thought it was odd that the hostess informed me I was early for my reservation, but I was only five minutes early. I then noticed they moved people from a table and re-set it, so I’m assuming they didn’t actually reserve a table for me but had to think fast. I informed the hostess it was my birthday, but, despite another table receiving birthday treatment, I only received regular service.

The food was excellent as always. The drinks were tasty. The meals came out pretty quickly, but the churros seemed to take an extra long time. The server was fine, not extra friendly or attentive but ok.

It’s too bad parking is so difficult and expensive.

Bottom line, I’ll still go to Las Margaritas for the tasty food and drinks, but I certainly won’t expect any particularly good service for a special occasion.

I used to come to Las Margaritas all the time in high school and was in the area and decided to come here for dinner. We were greeted by a lovely host but I felt like our server was there just to do his job. Very monotone. No emotion there was only 2 of us and he could remember what we ordered lol. The food in my opinion has gone down in quality, but it might be amazing for others. Not too sure if I would return

Our service was good, the margaritas where just okay, not worth $11 each! And the salmon tacos were dry and not much flavour. They need to do their research on making a fish taco with the proper ingredients, they were very expensive at $16.75 for 2 tacos!

I hadn't been to Las Margaritas in a few years and was happy to say that it was even better than I had remembered. The food was spectacular, I wish they had more locations closer to me. My boyfriend and I shared the quesadillas, street tacos and nachos...they were all SOOOO good. Can't wait to go there again.

We booked this for my fiancee's 5oth Birthday, it was not acknowledged AT ALL!
...we had to wait too long for our server, who was very rushed and impatient...the food was ok, nothing spectacular....we used to go here years ago and thought we would come back to see if it was just as good, but we were disappointed.

Great food and service. The staff were super busy because one person called in sick, but they were still super accommodating and overall so friendly. Definitely need a reservation for Saturdays! One of my favourite local restaurants. The Bulldogs are phenomenal, and you can't make a wrong choice with the menu.

Went to Las Margaritas as one of our favourite restaurants, this time to celebrate the 70th birthday of my brother. The visit didn't disappoint - food was good, they were able to provide me with a meal that was gluten free (essential as I have Celiac Disease), the cocktails great, and the ambiance was delightful. Busy, buzzing with joyful sounds. Later, after we'd eaten, a Mariachi Band came in and played excellent music. Very much reminded us of Mexico. The band played traditional Mexican tunes (a highlight for me) as well as more contemporary music. They were loved by all and got huge applause. This occurs, we were told, only every second Monday. Worth the extra tip money for the band! We will be back again.

Overall a good experience. Staff seemed to be a little too busy - surprising since the restaurant wasn't at all busy given the empty tables...so I'm going to attribute that, perhaps, to under-staffing. Given the reservation, we weren't much impressed when we found one of the seats at our table dripping with water - would've hoped that the place would ensure a clean table before taking us in. It took us a few minutes to get anyone's attention - it was odd for us as we stood at the table waiting for someone to show up so we could get the chair situation addressed but no one really bothered - in fact, one staff member in a colorful shirt waltzed by us a couple of times but didn't bother making eye-contact so we could ask him to address the wet chair. In any case, the food is good here - I wouldn't go here with high hopes for 'quality' service... :)
