You can measure a Mexican restaurant by the quality of the chips and salsa, and the ones at Las margaritas are fantastic! Located in the heart of Kitsilano, at 1999 West 4th Avenue, Las Margaritas feels like a small family restaurant with home cooking.
A number of dishes on the menu stand out, such as a variety of Nachos appetizers (with the same delicious chips), the Fajitas (chicken, beef, shrimp or vegetarian), and the Chiles Relleno. But one of the most noticeable dishes is the Enchilada de Sonora (ask for extra chiles). The average price of a dish is around $14.50.
No Mexican restaurant is complete without a margarita, and one can choose between a range of margaritas on the rocks or frozen with different fruit flavours. And if you prefer, they also serve a tasty virgin version, so you can still get something done after a working lunch.
While the service is usually great, be prepared to wait in line though, as it can get quite busy in the evenings. There is a waiting/bar area that fills up and often crowds over onto the streets, and drinks can be ordered
while you wait. Avoid the rush by going for lunch instead, open starting at 11:30am daily. Reservations are possible from Monday to Thursday: 604-734-7177.
Haven’t gotten enough of the chips and salsa? They are available to go, so you can satisfy that late night craving.
