Restaurant Review: La Margarita

Several weeks ago my friend Ryan was in town.  We were in the mood for Mexican and Ryan came across La Margarita in Fountain Square.  It is a fairly new restaurant that has opened up and had great ratings online.  We decided to give it a try. 

I would call it a more upscale Mexican restaurant.  The service was so amazing.  All the waiters in the restaurant swept the tables, so not one dirty dish was left or glass unfilled. We were both impressed.

They start you out with a basket of chips and 3 salsas.  I enjoyed trying them but liked the one on the top right the best.  And not to worry!  Free refills on chips and salsa.  We both fought over the same salsa.  (Ryan is my brother from another mother.)

Ine mine miney mo, which one do I try first
We started out with the chile con queso.  It wasn't too bad.  Kind of just tasted like pizza sauce to me. Super cheesy.  Nice presentation.

Ryan had the Carne Asada which are steak tacos.  We were both intrigued with the arroz verde which is green rice.  It made for a pretty plate and he said tasted good.

I had the chicken quesadilla.  It again was just okay.  It didn't taste any better than I could make at home.  The guacamole was very fresh tasting.  All ingredients used had a very fresh quality to them.
My meal
I wish I had tried the shrimp tequila instead.  Being that they are a tequila bar and serve over 200 different kinds, that might have been the better choice.  Had I not been between paydays, I would have tried a tequila flight.  And Ryan also might have had to carry me out to the car.

Support your local economy.  EAT LOCAL!!!!!
