“Disappointing experience”

Margarita Loca Bar & Grill
Ranked #102 of 175 Restaurants in Gulf Shores
Restaurant details
Reviewed February 5, 2018

We actually opted for carry-out from Margarita Loca and were not too impressed with the service or the food. Being Tex Mex fans, most all the dished were lacking in taste and flavor. The chips and salsa were just okay. The soft chicken tacos came with grilled peppers and onions but were not well-seasoned or tasty. They actually needed sour cream, pico de gallo, or guacamole for taste but we did not receive any. The quesadillas were okay but the tortillas were overly browned to a "crunchy" state. The beans and rice were blah and extremely bland. They need to step up the flavors and taste!!

Bleu's Burgers, across the street, was closed on a Monday, so after a movie we found Margarita Loca. They have a gigantic menu, but we settled on sharing Grill Loco Nachos, 12.95. It's a large plate of grilled steak, chicken and shrimp on tortilla chips topped with cheese dip, Pico de Gallo, jalapenos and sour cream. Very good!! and more than the two of us could eat. We ordered queso dip, 3.50, also good. A yummy Loca Margarita, small, was 7.45 and a medium Loca Margarita was 10.50. Karen was our friendly and efficient server. We will go back for the nachos!

Tucked away in the Pelican Place shopping center. Worth finding. Great tasting food. Great weekly specials. Friendly service. Try the carnitas. Yummy!

We were excited to see a new Mexican place come to Gulf Shores, so we did take out from there just to give it a shot. We were highly disappointed in the food and portion size. We ordered a chicken dish with rice, and it was over 3/4 rice and just a little chicken. For the prices they charge, and the not so great portions, this place will not last.

Because we have such great Mexican food in our home town, my family is pretty picky about Mexican food when we travel. We are so often disappointed that we hate to take chances. But this little place had good reviews so we decided to give it a try. We had a really good meal. Went Sunday for lunch. Prices were good, portions were generous and the salsa, guacamole, cheese dip were very good. Our server was super attentive and pleasant. We will be happy to return here in the future when traveling through this area.
