Nice place, very serene court yard / patio, which allowed us to bring in our dog... I had a hamburger, which was excellent, and my wife had their taco plate, and she claims it was excellent as well....

Went into this place starving, and left satisfied. Fast, friendly service. Enjoyed burritos and chimichangas and beer. Good sized portions, too.

Having grown up in Arizona, my family and I visited Tombstone a couple of times a year. Now that I live in California we come back once a year and typically hit the same shops and restaurants. This year was different as friends introduced us to a little spot off the main path and it was fabulous! What place serves... More

While in Tombstone we stopped in to Cafe Margarita. It was nice and clean with a welcoming fireplace. The red pepper, gouda bisque was the soup of the day...we tried it and it was delicious. I had a shredded beef chimichanga (it was stuffed with tender seasoned beef) for lunch with roasted corn and black beans, my husband had the... More

Pluses are that the Mexican entrees are fair to good and the service is fairly good. They say they offer both Mexican and Italian cuisine, but there are only a very limited number of Italian offerings, and on some days, there are none at all. My carne asada burrito was very dry and our chile relleno was coated with thick... More

My boyfriend and I had lunch here the past weekend. We ordered a chicken quesadilla and a caramelo. The food was tasty, only the portion was quite large. It was an excellent solution for a big appetite.

My wife and I had lunch here. Very good food. Reasonable prices. Other places on the Main Street we're very crowded. We got right in here even at the lunch hour. Very good service. Will return here again.

Most all restaurants on the main drag were so crowded we could not get in for dinner....we went down the street to a place that used to be Nellie Cashman's Restaurant, and is now Cafe Margarita. Not crowded like the restaurants on the main street. Good food, excellent margaritas, and friendly waiters. Enjoyed it so much, we went back the... More
