Success! Thanks for posting your review of Margaret's Cantina. You’ve done the world some good today.


NO TASTE FOOD! Their ""Mexican"" food has no taste and everything is pretty much out of the can or at least tastes like it. I don't know what these people are talking about, but I think the only reason this resturant is still in business is that they have a fairy nice/continent location. As far as the food goes, I wouldn't give it any stars if i could. I would never go back.

Fresh and Delicious Food

I have been going to Margaret's for years. You can't get better, fresher more unique Tex Mex food anywhere in the surrounding area. They offer alot of vegan and vegetarian selections, which is why I originally tried the restaurant. They buy local when they can and use organic ingredients. Yummy!

Great food

I have eaten here several times since moving to Chapel Hill and the food has been great every time. My favorite are the tacos. Everyone is friendly and helpful. Had a good time.

Great food esp. salsa

After reading the 1-star reviews, I was hesitant to go when a couple friends invited me. However, I am glad I went. Yes, service was a bit slow and our waiter seemed like he would rather be somewhere else. Yes, no free chips and salsa. BUT their chips are really tasty and so is there salsa! I've had plenty authentic salsa, this is one of the best I've had. Huge burrito -- definitely recommend it. Chicken is definitel... view more

Did I Vist the Same Place???

""Authentic""?? ""Fresh Ingredients""?? I can't believe the reviews. We moved here from Denver a year and a half ago, so we do know a little about SW/Mex food. Got off to a bad start, when we ordered a couple of beers, Tecate, ""the working man's beer of Mexico"", and got two Dos Equis instead. Oh, well. Then my chicken enchillada arrived, stuffed with shrimp... oh, well. The ""pico de gallo"" was actually sals... view more

Eh..not impressed

I really want to like Margaret's. I love locally owned businesses and appreciate her commitment to fresh local ingredients, but in the end, the food always tastes like food at an old folks home, under-seasoned and bland, hardly worthy of the southwest heritage implied by the name Cantina.

Fun, Low Key, and Delicious

Margaret's is not your typical greasy tex-mex place. If you want the usual chicken enchiladas for $2, go elsewhere. The great part about Margaret's are the fresh ingredients, the unconventional cooking style, and the delicious drinks. That is why it is more expensive than the corner tex-mex, but it certainly isn't outrageous. Sure, it is crowded on weekends and after movies, but that is because it is good! If you wan... view more

Best Margarita in Chapel Hill

Margaret's is my favorite Mexican restaurant in Chapel Hill. Amazing fresh ingredients, my favorite is the shrimp quesadilla with grilled peppers and guacamole. But the margaritas are to die for, with great fresh juices and good bartenders... gotta check this one out!

Don't go at movie time

Fine place for an out of the way strip commercial location, but avoid the crowds waiting for or coming out of the Chelsea and Timberlyne movies.
