Awesome food, great atmosphere – I love this place! It is definitely a busy restaurant, so if you don't like crowded, happy places this isn't for you. Their bar is half inside and half outside, so it gives the place a lot of positive energy. The bartenders are great and can whip you up any kind of drink that you could imagine. It's definitely not corporate, so it's nice that the employees can show their own personalities while waiting on you. The food is very different and very delicious! Try the New Mexico Adobada and you'll want to come back on a weekly basis. The people who don't like this restaurant would be better suited to go somewhere boring like Jose O'Shea's to get the same old average Tex-Mex experience. The owners are wonderful!
Terrible Experience! Do Not Go Here! Even the President of the Company is a Moron – It was my first visit to Las Margaritas and I did not have a good experience. I wrote an email to the president and his response to me was "It is pointless for me to respond to your email since you will never return or recommend my restaurant, but people like you???" His name is Duane Bowen and he obviously does not care to have my business or anyone elses. Please do not waste your time and money at this restuaruant
disappointing – Alright so me and my brother decided to try this place for lunch. It was around 1:30 so they weren't that busy and we were taken to our seats pretty quickly. After we were there for about 10 minutes someone finally came to our table to ask us what we wanted to drink, the drinks took another 5 minutes to get to the table and all we ordered was tea. Our food got to our table a lot quicker than the drinks and it was pretty much tossed on the table while the waiters quickly rushed off telling us to enjoy our meal. The plates were hot the food was not and it wasn't even that great.
Meh. – Decent food, really different from any Mexican I've ever had. Trying really really hard to be trendy and unique. Nothing is simple or basic, it is all dressed up with something kindof different - a cheese sauce here or an oddly flavored red sauce there, many colors, many flavors all mixed together. It's interesting, but picky people might have issues. There is way better mexican out there. The salsas are really tasty, though. Food will come in a reasonable amount of time, wait won't be horrible - though I've never been there on a Friday or Saturday night. Wait staff is usually good about getting what you need, but are often too busy to check on you much.
Seating is uncomfortably close. You are guaranteed to get a butt or a bag in your face as people squeeze by your table to get to theirs and you are practically sitting on each other. No room to walk. Probably better in the summer time when they can open up the walls and move more tables outside. As is, don't wear a big coat, there will be nowhere to put it that isn't on your neighbor's lap or your own and don't bring a claustrophobe to dinner.
Overpriced, Uncomfortable and Always Packed to the Brim – Every time we go to Las Margaritas the place is packed in an uncomfortable way. I like the food, though I feel it is overpriced for simple Mexican food, but it is almost unbearable to dine there. It's not romantic, quiet, spacious or welcoming. All the waiters are in a rush to tend to their tables, so they come off as merely civil. Their hurried manor makes me feel like I am being pushed forward in the meal as well, as if they are timing me to eat. This is further compounded by the lack of a waiting area, so new customers are watching you eat, glancing at what stage you are at in the meal to try to estimate their own wait time; they do this in the only place to stand (no waiting area), which is directly in front of the main entrance. The last time we went there, this weekend, we ended up being so uncomfortable due to all of the reasons I stated above, that we asked for our food 'to go' and cut our dine in time in half. I told my husband that I never want to go there again. This review is polite compared to the way I felt after several date nights being ruined.
Editorial Review – Mexican restaurant and cantina that features a variety of tequilas.
Love the outside bar – Great new spot located in Belmar. I love going there on Sunday afternoon and hanging on the patio listening to live music and people watching. The food is great and the marg's are fantastic.
Great Food, Great Patio Bar, Great Happy Hour – Las Marg's is your non corporate restaurant bar located in Belmar. Great food and a wonderful staff. I love that they serve good food until 1am everynight and there is a 2-1 happy hour everynight :). The outdoor bar to the patio is my favorite feature. Everthing I have tried has been outstanding. Best free chips and salsa in Denver.
Outdoor Patio Bar, Great Weekend Brunch! – Belmar has some of my favorite Lakewood restaurants but the new Las Margaritas in Belmar is the bomb. The outdoor bar is the place to be for happy hour and the weekend brunch menu is delicious. (Try the brunchiladas) The day bartender Louie makes a really good mojito from scratch or ask for his signiture drink "vodka yummy goodness". Really good people and a very unique restaurant design...
Great Mexican Food!! Great Happy Hour!!! – I love the California Quesadilla with shrimp, everything I have had is great. Great free chips and salsa. They serve food until 1 am and its good food. Great late night happy hour 2 for 1, 10pm to close. Nice people!!
