The food was awesome. We saw. We came. We were conqured. I could not get another mouthful in, it was so good, filling and tasty. The chips and salsa were as alway, a treat. The margaritas perfect. Our main courses were excellent enchiladas, de carnitas and san blas. A special mention for the green tomatillo sauce--to die for.

We got in early Tuesday evening with a reservation. Outside seating was already taken up when we arrived and 20 minutes later the place really started to quickly fill up (50% full by 18:00) for the inside seats. The only downer, and it was minor, is that the maître d' was a little cold and even thought we said it was our 36th anniversary, he sat us in a less than good location, up against a dark wall while the inside was still 90% empty at the time.

The rest of the staff was cheerful and nice and very helpful.

The price was very reasonable. We came prepared to drop a c-note, but we didn't even break $60!

Although we don't live near the place, we like drop in 4-6 times a year. I heartily recommend Las Margaritas to anyone in the Vancouver area.

The decor, the ambiance, the people, the chips and salsa... On point!

We only had an hour to finish up our convo and dinner at this place, and yet we managed - not the convo part because the food was SO GOOD.

Warm chips and homemade salsa blew our mind even before we had a taste of the mains. Would definitely buy them to take home next time!

It was the ‘usual’ night at Las Margs! Emily was a great server, easy going and kept the drinks flowing! We live in the neighbourhood and bring family when they visit from out of town! Las Margs is always consistent, great food, good price!

We ordered a pitcher of VIRGIN margaritas for us and our children under 12 years old. The kids complained that they did not taste good - tasted “off” ... not as good as before. I asked the waitress if they were indeed virgin drinks. She later came back (after they were half gone) scooped up the drinks and told us she would bring fresh drinks, just in case. When we tried the fresh drinks, it was VERY obvious that the first round did have alcohol in it. We don’t even drink alcohol ourselves, let alone our kids. No apology and we were still charged for the pitcher of drink.

It was my birthday and I wanted some good Mexican food. (2 adults, 1 well behaved 6 yr old). Restaurant was busy which we took as a good sign. Got seated and our waiter, an older guy, seemed disengaged. Not rude just going through the motions. Didn't write our order down and got my granddaughter's wrong. Stuff happens and her meal was replaced. Food was awful, portions small and way overpriced. We've eaten in the Yucatan and Las Margaritas was not even close. I had the chicken loco, the chicken breast was small, overcooked and dry, rather tasteless and came with a small salad and a small portion of black beans for $18.95. I had enchiladas, ate half and brought the rest home for the dog. $7 for a Corona and it didn't even come with a slice of lime, I had to ask for it and the waiter brought it in his hand! Absolutely awful service and food. Will not be returning and cannot recommend.

The strawberry (slush) margarita was soooooo good! The mango margarita wasn’t bad either but a bit sour compared to the strawberry one. Gosh I’m daydreaming about it now!!!

The free nacho was also yum and served warm, and I liked the jalapeño poppers, it had cream cheese inside! The chicken quesadilla tasted like tuna though lol

I’ve always enjoyed Las Margaritas, so it was an easy choice for my birthday celebration. I thought it was odd that the hostess informed me I was early for my reservation, but I was only five minutes early. I then noticed they moved people from a table and re-set it, so I’m assuming they didn’t actually reserve a table for me but had to think fast. I informed the hostess it was my birthday, but, despite another table receiving birthday treatment, I only received regular service.

The food was excellent as always. The drinks were tasty. The meals came out pretty quickly, but the churros seemed to take an extra long time. The server was fine, not extra friendly or attentive but ok.

It’s too bad parking is so difficult and expensive.

Bottom line, I’ll still go to Las Margaritas for the tasty food and drinks, but I certainly won’t expect any particularly good service for a special occasion.

I used to come to Las Margaritas all the time in high school and was in the area and decided to come here for dinner. We were greeted by a lovely host but I felt like our server was there just to do his job. Very monotone. No emotion there was only 2 of us and he could remember what we ordered lol. The food in my opinion has gone down in quality, but it might be amazing for others. Not too sure if I would return

Our service was good, the margaritas where just okay, not worth $11 each! And the salmon tacos were dry and not much flavour. They need to do their research on making a fish taco with the proper ingredients, they were very expensive at $16.75 for 2 tacos!

I hadn't been to Las Margaritas in a few years and was happy to say that it was even better than I had remembered. The food was spectacular, I wish they had more locations closer to me. My boyfriend and I shared the quesadillas, street tacos and nachos...they were all SOOOO good. Can't wait to go there again.

Great food and service. The staff were super busy because one person called in sick, but they were still super accommodating and overall so friendly. Definitely need a reservation for Saturdays! One of my favourite local restaurants. The Bulldogs are phenomenal, and you can't make a wrong choice with the menu.
