Success! Thanks for posting your review of La Margenal Restaurant. You’ve done the world some good today.

just awesome!

went here with a friend and now I stop by every chance I get. I always get the buffet they have going on from 11 to 3 pm and even if it's the same, I could never get tired of it! ^_^ love this food!

If you are looking for authentic Puerto Rican food, this is not the restaurant for you!! I am Puerto Rican, raised in Chicago. Their Jibarito had roast pork on it, they would not make it with steak. Their accapurias were horrible and they charged $2.50 for one. In NY or Chicago one is $.75. Their prices are way too high! These are simple dishes they are serving. The rice had little flavor I could tell they didn't use... view more

Just Great!

I'm Puerto Rican and this food is soooo good! The staff speak spanish so I have to translate for my boyfriend ha. Although, every time I go, they don't have tres leches cake. Best time to go is around lunchtime or a little after. Nighttime gets really packed. I prefer to call ahead of time and pick up the food.

Great food

OK, let me put in my two cents! I've been to this restaurant 4 times, and two out of four they were out of my favorite dish ""Mofongo relleno de mariscos"" and believe it or not they were out of the ingredients to make my favorite drink ""Mojito"", so having said that which may sound negative, I still recommended it, the food is very tasty, the prices are decent and the servers are friendly. So my plan is to call ahe... view more

Went once.... I won't come again... Not what I expected...

I'm puertorican, and my family own a restaurant back in PR, so, basically we know pretty much about latin caribean cusine... I went to this restaurant because we moved to San Antonio a year ago and I was looking for a good place to eat a good quality and tasty puertorican food, mostly a good mofongo... We heard about this restaurant and we decided to try it. When we arrived to the restaurant guided by our GPS, the fi... view more

more than expected

I went for lunch, and there were a lot people there. The buffet was fresh, and the price was good. The chicken and the rice was just great (easy to accept the taste. The taste was ""different"" at the first bit, but you will find the delightness of the taste after you try for the second bit!---good good!) the iced tea (sweet one) was just good! different than the regular iced tea you got anywhere else. And the desser... view more

The waiter was really nice and the restaurant stayed open after hours to feed me and my husband. The live music was great and set the mood. I loved it so much I have told all my friends about it. The food was cooked perfectly and very tasty.

La Marginal lives up to its translation "" marginal""

After the build up of Puerto Rican cuisine from the allegedly great La Marginal. I am sad to say that my dinner there rivaled one of the worst meals I have ever had from Mc Donald's. The prices' seemed fair, and the description of the plates seemed to be authentic. When we received our meal the high light to me should have been the maduros, unfortunately what should have been sweet plantains were no more than cold to... view more
