Claudia is the best server! The margaritas are the bomb. We go for breakfast, lunch and dinner. All the staff is kind, friendly and never forgets us.

Family style Mexican restaurant currently located inside Prospector hotel on main street. Nice decor with old model trains displayed. Children's menu is nice touch as my family includes 3 grandchildren. Free chips and salsa (mild and hot) served upon seating. Service was prompt and portions large. I found the food bland but maybe it's intended that way. Would recommend to... More

Great Salsa. Ate dinner and breakfast. It was okay. Tables need to be leveled, so was distracting from the experience.

We ate here twice while staying at the Prospector Hotel. We tried their Mexican food for dinner and was one of the worst meals we have had. Food was very bland and undercooked. Went back for breakfast and that was good.

We enjoyed the food at Margaritas twice while travelling! We had dinner while driving to Idaho and then spent the night at the Prospector Hotel on the way home! Had breakfast at Margaritas which is located inside the hotel/casino. Excellent food. Very large portions so we shared meals!

Not keen on Mexican food but they do have a limited "American" menu and food was good and reasonably priced

Not much to right home about. Food is fair, Prices could be better for what you get. Heavy smell of smoke

We are from Southern CA, so we are admittedly spoiled when it comes to Mexican food. The food here was pretty good. The Cadillac margarita I ordered was excellent! It's a good thing...if you are going to name your restaurant Margaritas, your margaritas better be awesome! Service was excellent!

Thank Jill H
