How's Margarita's in Hanover, NH?

Going on the 4th. Looking for someplace near medical center - casual, reasonable prices, AND good food. Any ideas?

    Mostly, I find Margarita's so-so. The salsa is good, and the margaritas are decent, but the food is just pretty run-of-the-mill Americanized Mexican food. But if you're looking to stay near the medical center, it's probably a good option.

    If it's lunch, Jesse's isn't too bad, either.

    If you're looking for Mexican Food, do Gusanoz on the Miracle Mile off of Exit 19. Much better Mexican Food.

      Yes I agree with Kaszeta........I used the words pretty good.......
      Kaszeta said so-so.......probably about the same. Jesse's would be
      OK too.
      As far as Gusanoz.....the food IS better but the service is really poor.
      And the margaritas are better but they are way more expensive and
      really small for the price. I have been to both places many times.
      I really do prefer Gusanoz but have given them a rest after getting
      really bad, slow service several times in a row. I guess it didn't help
      that we were sat in the far back corner of the original restaurant.
      It seemed that every time we went we got stuck back there.

        I'll have to agree with JOronte's comment on the service, in that the two times recently I've been seated in the "original" part of the Lebanon restaurant, the service tends not to notice you.

      The Margarita's Restaurant in actually in Lebanon NH. It is on Rt. 120.
      The food there is usually pretty good. The salsa is nice and spicy.
      The assortment of margaritas is good. You can upgrade the house
      margarita by having them make it with the more expensive top shelf
      Tequilas. I love the fish tacos. I also like the enchiladas.
