For our third night in the area, this was our choice for dinner. I was quite impressed with the tacos carnitas. The pork was so juicy and good.

Like my previous review states we eat here quite often. The last two visits have been extremely disappointing. Not sure if it the server or the kitchen but it definitely is not the place it used to be! Last time we were there the service was extremely slow, waited 20 minutes to get our order taken. Waited another 30 minutes... More

First time staying in Peru, my hotel was right next to (walking distance) to a Mexican Restaurant named Jalapeno's but when I walked in it didn't have a bar (eating single on the road) so I went down the street to Mi Margarita. I was there on Margarita night ($3 margarita's), service was very good, salsa was delicious and so... More

We went around the 6pm dinner hour and there were several people in the restaurant. Not overcrowded. The food was good and the service was good. I thought there margaritas were tasty. The salsa was a bit runny for my liking. Overall it is a good place to eat.

The staff and service alone keeps you going back!! Great people and the food is delicious!! My only advice is to not over eat the chips and salsa because the food portions are huge! You will leave stuffed! Oh ya by the way there margaritas are hands down the best around!

I've been going to Mi Margaritas for about 20 years. The wait staff are consistently friendly and efficient. The food is always good and served in a timely manner.
