Yummy! 5/18/2005

This restaurant is fantastic. The food is unexplainable. I love the Steak tacos, so simple yet so so good. i eat it every time i go and i never get sick of it. I also brought some of my girlfriends with me and they fell in love with the camarones empanizados. They crave them all the time, and beg me to take them again. Its great for having parties as well. I had a party there not to long ago, it was great every one loved the food and the dancing. The service was good too. Try it to see for yourself! Pros: food, service, environment more

Best Food Period. 5/22/2004

Being a mexican, i will easily admit that la estancia has among the best mexican food you can find anywhere. WIthout a doubt - you MUST order the Tamale appetizer. I judge mexican food by the quality of their sauces - and their enchilada is as good as you're gonna get. The Tamale with i think it's called their ""diablo"" sauce is the best food ive ever had. Pros: tamales, enchiladas, fast service Cons: , far from my house :), was freezing inside more

GREAT PLACE 2/21/2003

This restaruant is fantastic! It has changed its name though. It is now La Estancia, but its the same great management and FOOD!LaLos is ok but I always feel rushed because they are so busy, and I never have time to enjoy the food. But its not like that at La Estanica (La Margarita) I can take my time and stay their all day if I wanted and they wouldn't kick me out! I had my Quincenera there and it was so much fun, if you have a party their its great because you can dance to music, they have cd's there or you can bring your own! Even my teen friends loved it, its a place for people of all ages! I just love this place. If you want real mexican food without the imitation with the all too american taste, like TACO BELL, then go to LA ESTANCIA. Pros: Great FOOD!, Wonderful decorations, Decently priced more

False Name 12/15/2002

The food here is HORRIBLE! Me and my Husband tried it out last month and wish we never did. What is with the Margarita's? If you want great mexican food, try Lalo's. more

Overpriced 12/10/2002

Friendly place but the food is not as good as most Mexican places. Terrible salsa. Small p[ortions at high prices. Cons: overpriced, charge for coke refil, bad salsa more

margaritaville 11/5/2002

excellent 8/21/2002

I normally don't like Mexican, but this restaurant had excellent food and service. There is something in the food that makes it great. I am glad I tried this restaurant the other night. I would recommend this restaurant to other people. Pros: Good food, Nice Environment more

YUMMY :O) 8/15/2002

LaMargarita is my favorite Mexican restaurant. I have been in the area for 16 years and still haven't found a better one. I have tried many other's all over but it seems impossible to top. Keep doing what you're doing. Pros: excellent food, excellent service, excellent atmosphere more

Just the best 8/14/2002

It doesn't get better than this. If you haven't tried this place you have to try it. You won't regret it!!! more

Best Salsa Around! 8/14/2002

I've brought friends and co-workers to La Margarita and EVERYONE has commented on the quality of the food, especially the salsa. Great for the salsa-afficionados! I have had them cater our work party and it was great. Very authentic, great bar! Margaritas are great (as you would probably expect from a restaurant called La Margarita!). Hands down, my fav mexican restaurant. Pros: Food Quality, Menu choice, lots of parking Cons: A little hidden more

Arriba La Margarita! 8/13/2002

We were quite surprised by the bar and it's great set up. They had free appetizers, knowledgable staff and wide selection of tequilas. They had D.J. music playing Salsa, Merengue, and American too. Very cool and low key. New place to hang! Pros: price, music, excellent food more

Home-made Tamales! 8/13/2002

Finally, home-made and fresh tamales with an authentic taste. I've heard from the owner that they're changing their name soon-still under the same owners and management but it's all a big surprise and I can't wait for the name changing party! They know how to party! Last time I was there for a Halloween Party, it was the best party ever! Food is always above all others! Pros: Good parking, always a party more


Camarones en Cilantro sauce is my favorite dish and is one of the many! Excellent Carne Asadas, Seafood Enchiladas, Stuffed Avocados! Yummy! No long waits, excellent service and very reasonable prices! Pros: INEXPENSIVE, GOOD PARKING, OPEN LATE more

In the Burbs but well worth the drive! 8/9/2002

Excellent traditional Mexican food made by, served by, greeted by family. The atmosphere is very friendly and the Margaritas are great! Wide variety of tequilas, from exotic to gringo. Everything is made to order and if it's not on the menu, they'll make it for you, as long as it's not pizza! more
