- The Margaritas were delicious and the service was very nice. – Rebecca S., Yelp, 8/23/2010
Against the backdrop of seaside murals, Casa Margarita's indoor waterfalls and bubbling fountains transport diners to the shores of Cabo San Lucas. The restaurant, which has been in business for 18 years, features festive decor, live plants, a cacophony of colors. and authentic arches. Cooks tantalize tongues with plates full of authentic Mexican eats, such as carne asada, shrimp fajitas, and enchiladas, though, the star of this eatery is their margaritas. They come in a variety of experimental flavors, including mango, raspberry, and peach, or in the traditional style of lime juice and tequila on the rocks—a phrase that was first coined by cavemen mixologists.
