Dinner with a side of rats – I use to eat here all the time for lunch. However, I will never eat here again. Never. One night I came here for dinner with a couple girlfriends and the place was fairly empty.. until we had some unexpected company.. as we were joined by two rats. Gross! They were running around the restaurant and when we told our server she didnt even seem to care.. as if they were her regular customers!
Dreadful. – I'm sooooooooo disappointed. My boyfriend and I went to this restaurant this evening with high hopes. He was really craving mexican --- and I was so horribly disappointed, I wanted to write this review TONIGHT before I forgot. We walked in and were greeted by the hostess pretty quickly ... we sat next to the juke box --- We had our menus for (no joke) 20 minutes before anyone came over. Then - the young woman that did, barely spoke english - (why is she waiting tables?!) Turns out she was the bartender too... We'd both ordered margaritas and we didn't get them until we got our meals. (They were SOOOOOOOOOOO bad, neither of us finished). The food - well, it speaks for itself, gross gross gross. The only thing we got that we liked were the salsa and chips and even at that, we got those WITH our meal too. Seriously!?!?
He ordered beef tacos of some sort, but the beef was so disgusting he couldn't even stomach it. Let me assure you - that NEVER happens. I had chicken taquilos of some sort and it was fatty, dark meat chicken that wasn't even cut -just a big slab of dark meat wrapped in the tortilla. My knife couldn't even cut it.
I wanted to cry when the $50 bill came and we both left hungry. Good thing there was a festival on Broadway, we had funnel cakes and pina coladas that were FAR better than this place. I'm so sorry, but please please please don't go there unless you're ready for more of the same. We'll NEVER be back.
Astoria's best mexican restaurant – This use to be a nice mexican spot, but since the new owners took over, it has been getting better and better. Food is great, servers are very friendly, and margaritas are SO very good. The decor can use a lot of help, but once you get to know this place well, you'll get hooked. No mariachis and low prices are just a bonus.
Excellent Margaritas – I love margaritas and this place knows how to make them. We had chips and really good salsa at the bar with our margaritas. We did not eat, went just to drink. Not a wonderful social scene but if you want a margarita with a friend go here!
wanna have a horrible time go here – we sit ourselves and a waiter comes over to take our order we then tell him may we have some menus please. mmm This should be a hint huh?we go over menus and decide what we'll be ordering. I asked if chips are set on table & our waiter says no this only comes with main food selections.margaritas arrive & they arent horrible but Ive had better at Applebees. We then notice that everyone else in restaurant is noshing on bowls of chips that their waitress has supplied.SO we have to remind him to give us some We put a $1 in a video jukebox & have to ask the waiter to activate it & find out its really not a video jukebox simply an hyped up jukebox where you can see photos of the album & commercials GREAT! The large group who arrived after us have now recieved their appetizers NOTHING FOR US THO & the SMELL oF DAMP MOP IS NOW SICKENING Our appetizers arrive with the meal so we call for the manger Things we didnt order come & we complain that we had to ask for complimentary chips. I NEVER get a spoon for my soup that night & we're so fed up we ask that they forget what hasn't yet been served.For a soup, salad & 2 margaritas & a kids meal the bill was up to 33$ already TOO EXPENSIVE FOR THIS SMELLY BADLY ORGANIZED ESTABLISHMENT I was going to ask the manager to please comp something but he began to explain to us that everybody makes mistakes & he was being more than accomodating. My mouth hung open when he said we should have communicated to our waiters that there was a problem I was amazed at this.He felt I needed to explain soup needs a spoon & an established worker needs to be reminded appetizers come before the meal or complimentary noshes are given so customers may make their decisions and peruse the menu. MY GOSH PLEASE!! Astoria in my opinion is an incredibly ethnicly diverse place so ignore this one restaurant & enjoy any of the others.Remember for great mexican 1 can always get back on train ito the city

Amazing! – I've lived in the neighborhood for over 24 years and never realized what an amazing Mexican restaurant was within walking distance. Highly recommend the Ceviche and the frozen margaritas. The fajita and the seafood soup are also delicious. Do not let the dark windows dissuade you...once you open the door you step in to a fiesta! Great food, good prices, and they are open late (2am) on the weekends.
A Great Dining Surprise – My husband, myself and another couple discovered Las Margaritas purely by accident after walking around Astoria Saturday night looking for a place to eat. We were very pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food; the ceviche was the best I've had and the other dishes we tried we also wonderful. The mariachi band added a very festive air and we felt transported to Mexico again. The ait staff and bartender were the best. You MUST try this restaurant. You won't be disappointed. Get the sangria but try the Margaritas too. OLE!!
Some of the best Mexican out there! – After having enchiladas suizas in Mexico City a couple years ago, I was saddened to find that NONE of the Mexican restaurants in New York make anything remotely resembling them...until I went to Las Margaritas! The decor is a little odd (black-light murals of Mexican history??) but the food really is the best I've had since coming back from Mexico--including fancy overpriced Manhattan places. Definitely worth the trip! I love it!!!
GREAT PLACE – This place is amazing... It's been in my neighborhood for a couple of years, went there for dinner one night... The best Mexican in Astoria, for a reasonable price. The margueritas were fruity and the mariachi band just added to the already wonderful ambiance...
Their brunch is out of this world, too.
Im hear to spead the word as to how great this place is... I think it just needs more business.
