I've eaten there a number of times and always had good food. I'm from Chicago and I'm very familiar with good Mexican food and I've never had a bad meal in this place. Sometimes the service could be a little slow but once the food gets there it's always excellent! The best Menudo, tongue and liver prepare Mexican style that... More

The complimentary chips were burnt, the chicken fajitas I ordered were the most bland fajitas I've ever had in my life, as were the refried beans. The rice, and the salsa were the only things worth eating. Prices were what you'd expect but just so not worth how terrible the food was.

As a Mexican, I have to say that I rarely eat at Mexican restaurants outside Mexico since the taste is not even close (for somebody who was born in Mexico and actually ate Mexican food), because of the ingredients, because it is more tex-mex or cooked to have a more US flavor. Having said that, this restaurant is really good,... More

I ordered the chicken enchilada's and they were "just okay". Place could be cleaner in terms of food storage. Chips for the chips and salsa I noticed are kept in a dishpan outside of the kitchen, where anyone can go by and touch, if they'd like. This bothers me...all the food should be in the kitchen until it's served. I... More

This is one of my favorite places. It is very small, but the food is good. Their rice is the best Mexican rice around. We have tried most things on the menu and haven't found anything we don't like. The prices are low too.

When I crave comfort food, I head to Margarita's and order the chicken flautas. They are delicious every time. The service is always warm and hospitable. Many people give Margarita's a hard time because it isn't a fancy restaurant, but that's part of its appeal to me. If you want to pay for the atmosphere, go to Boatwerks. If you... More

We ate at Margaritas a couple of nights ago and had a pretty good meal for a good price. We are from Texas and eat a lot of Mexican food. This restaurant is pretty typical of a working class Mexican restaurant in Houston. The food was not fancy but it was fine. The chips and salsa were not too good.... More

We always try to find a local resturant on our trips. Although small and very limited parking, food was excellent and portions were large. Don't expect updated and fancy, just a place where locals go.
