Reviews for La Margarita Express

I was really excited to try this place when the regular la margarita closed because of COVID. Sadly it was tasteless. No salt. No pepper. No seasoning of any kind. The pinto beans tasted like nothing and (according to my parents) the meat was also tasteless. I really wish I could recommend this place. The rice was okay.

This is one of our go to spots. They have red bean and cheese pupusas that are great for a toddler (and an adult). We usually do get the El Salvadorian food off the menu and it is always good. When you eat there they are very kid friendly and, now that we are in a pandemic, they are doing easy deliveries.

My husband and I have been here twice and we both really enjoyed our food. Chips and salsa are very good. The salsa has just the perfect amount of heat for me and is flavorful. Only complaint was waiting a way longer than I wanted for refills both times. Most likely would have been a 5 star review if not for that.
