It is a mecca for all types of food. We separate Margarita’s Cafe from the rest of the pack because of our attention to detail.
From the opening of our first restaurant, we worked to create an atmosphere that takes you away from the mundane.
We have spared no expense in acquiring one of a kind decor to surround our customers as they dine.
Every choice of silverware, item on the menu or drinks we create are designed to give our customers the illusion of dining while on vacation.

Great service and great food at reasonable prices. The place was extremely busy and even with that we had no problems with anything. Highly recommend

Love the food and our waitress was great. Unfortunately the kitchen was very slow because the restaurant was full. We waited over 1/2 hour for the food. We will think twice before we go back on a Saturday night

Food was very good and plentiful. The service lacked. It took a very long time to get food and then the order was wrong.

Fabulous as always! Tuesday nights are so much fun, very festive atmosphere. The bartender, Ligia, is our favorite! She's the BEST !!! She's super fast with refilling your drinks, works very hard, but always has a big smile and greets you with a warm welcome.

Crazy loud and crowded. Music volume high so people had to yell at their tables

Appetizers were good but DINNER NEVER CAME so we left

Food is good as is the service. Dinner was crowded and busy. Service was a bit slow. Food was good as it usually is. However, my wife's chicken was a bit overcooked.

Food was great! Wait staff was also nice but the whole experience felt rushed. They tried to get you in and out. Our drinks weren’t done yet and they brought the check. They said since we paid, there were people waiting for a table and we had to leave but “no pressure”. If there was a dining limit due to covid, please say that from the beginning. We wanted a nice afternoon to enjoy drinks and company without feeling rushed. Would not go back anytime soon for this reason.

Love the food and service at Margaritas Cafe. Love the combo platter, beef taco and cheese enchilada. Very fresh and tasty. Guacamole also is a must as are the frozen Margaritas.

We didn’t even get to eat there. They were over booked and with a reservation the wait was 30 minutes plus. This establishment is poorly run.

Food is good, service is horrible. Went twice, won’t be back. Gauc serviced before drinks and with no chips. We must have waited at least 15 minutes to get chips to eat the Guacamole. No opportunity to order another round of drinks. Had to ask for check twice. Forget paying with credit card, server never came back. We left cash and left.

Our reservation was for 6:45. Upon arrival we were told that it will be another 20-30 wait. That is unacceptable. We were hungry and looked forward to dining here. After waiting 10 minutes I asked the young host to cancel our reservation. We walked down the street to Sangria 71 and had a great meal and drinks.

I don’t want to go into details because I know restaurants are trying to recover from the pandemic so I’ll just say I didn’t have a very good experience.

The food, ambiance and drinks are excellent. My only slight complaint as I felt my chicken dish was a little small. Only three small pieces. Very good though. And the churros dessert very small too.

Aside from the long wait to be seated despite a reservation (half hour) it was really great! I have been to Mexican restaurants that cost twice as much and the food was only half as good as margaritas! This food is excellent and so was the service. After we started our meal we did not mind waiting at all! That’s how good this restaurant is

I’ve been to several Margarita’s cafe locations and my experience is usually very different at each location. Most menu options are great but what I think should improve is portions. At my last dine in experience my plate was served with shrimp in salsa verde , the amount of shrimp was average but the portion of rice and not to mention refried beans was so minuscule it just looked like a decoration on the plate which was a little disappointing. On another note; service was great . Nothing compared to my several experiences at the Freeport location.
