Business Information


Message from the Business

The original Margaret's Cantina opened in 1993, moved in 1996, and has grown substantially since. As the restaurant has grown, it has changed to reflect owner and chief Margaret's heritage, philosophy and taste based around experiences growing up in Southern Arizona. At Margaret's find a blend of authentic border flavors with a lighter, healthier cooking style. All dishes are made from scratch with the freshest ingredients. None of the sauces and vegetable dishes contain meat or meat stocks. In addition to our regular menu for both lunch and dinner, weekend dinner specials are also available.

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... (more)

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... (more)

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. (more)

The good news is that it is a quaint little setting and less greasy than most mexican places. However, the prices are quite high, and the flavors are really nothing to get excited about. We had the nachos ($7), the... (more)

I will never go back! I was so excited to try Margaret's and it was a huge disapointment. Its really over priced. You have to pay for chips & salsa. The tables are too small. The service was terrible. We showed up at 5:00 on... (more)
