Had a great night out watching a UMaine Hockey game with my wife and coworkers. Then it was off to this great restaurant for some diner. Everyone from the young man who set our tables up (table for 10), the cook and our wonderful server were over the top. Our server was MaryElle and she was awesome.

Well, if an eight year old's choice of restaurant means anything, then Margarita's is a great place to go... she's quite the little food critic! You won't be disappointed.

Not good. Meal was stone cold and apparently was noticed when brought out but waitress was not going to say anything but we complained. Kitchen help neglected to turn on heating lamp. I had a 40 bonus card that now has a 5.00 balance that will expire in 2 days and they still charged me 21.60 for alcohol (understandable) but... More

Easy enough to get to and the food was decent. Staff was courteous and attentive. The Margaritas were just okay.

This place has good food, and specially their margarita... The place is very close to the school campus and student housing, so many students visit this place often so it can be crowded at times with waiting time, so be prepared. Overall good experience.

Always good service, food has been consistent over the years. Thursday is lady's night, I think Wednesday is college night, Tuesdays is all you can eat tacos. One of my favorite meals is Chicken fajita salad with tequila lime vinaigrette dressing. This area of Orono has a parking problem.

Spending much of my life in El Paso TX I am really a snob about mexican food. This place as some pretty good mexican with real flavor. Having traveled about this country, this place is worth a try. Though the decor is a bit tacky, the service is great as are the drinks. Though they need to replace the carpet... More

Excellent selection of Tequilas and Margaritas with some creatives twists.The place was busy but the food and drinks came quickly.Enjoyed the free chips and frsh,house-made salsa with a little touch of heat.I suggest the "Fuego" sauce to give it "big kid" spice.

Our family reunion required a new venue on short notice due to last minute guests. Margaritas was very accommodating & agreed to host our very large group downstairs. THEY WERE SO PLEASANT & EFFICIENT & FOOD WAS GOOD & DESPITE INDIVIDUAL ORDERS FOR ALMOST 80 PEOPLE DELIVERED SEAMLESSLY. The challenges were that it required a number of stairs to access... More
