Three Margaritas Restaurant

3-Margaritas restaurant is an example of the American Dream, which includes financial success as well as a chance to go back home and help those left behind. The nine Morales kids, six girls and three boys, slept on straw mats on the floor of a two-bedroom house at their small ranch. After school the worked in the fields. Today, all of them own at least one restaurant. After crossing the border, Nicolas Morales ended up in Seattle where his brother Manuel lived. The Morales brothers saved all they could knowing they wanted to open their own restaurant. They knew they were now in a new country, so they decided they’d better adapt if they wanted to make it. So, Nicolas learned to cook. They invested all their savings in their first restaurant, Las Margaritas, a six table place in Seattle. For six months they couldn’t even pay the rent and had to ask friends to loan them money. Their fortunes changed when a food critic from the Seattle Times paid them a visit and published a review that called Las Margaritas the best Mexican restaurant in the state. If you are looking for first-class service, great taste and value, you have come to the right place! We are here to serve you and when you are here, you are a part of our family.

    My parents love this place! We decided to go out for dinner here on Friday night and it didn't disappoint.  I really like their large booths that fit an entire family. Customer service is good and friendly also their dishes are all super large.

    I went here for lunch a couple of days ago and had a great chicken chimichanga! The salsa was also really good with fresh cilantro- could have ate chips and salad as my main meal :). The service was decent-- a little slow, but they were going through the lunch time rush. I will definitely be back for happy hour at some point to try their margaritas because they looked fantastic.

    I've been to several of the Three Margaritas around town and this one is the best! The place is huge so there is never a wait to be seated. The food is authentic mexican fare and the drinks are not weak. I've been a regular since 1999.

    Very nice quant restaurant. The food came out pretty quick. Drinks were even faster! My wife enjoyed the pork enchilada. The crispy Chile rellano was interesting, compared to the traditional, but was good. The beans are nicely flavored. Chips and salsa are good to. Probably your shredded meats are the best bet rather than ground beef. All and all a good meal.

    Was invited to a get  together with a REALLY big group of cousins and their families here this evening. Didn't care where we were meeting (more about the company than the food, after all ) but I was dreading the meal as was here once before some years ago  and it was a terrible one-star experience .Happy to report light-years better tonight First , have to say there were no foul odors. The Men's room was clean. Our waitress was very sweet and accommodating ( and was sure to check with the kitchen as I wanted to be sure there weren't raw onions in my order. If there were any order errors am unaware of them. That's something in a group this size. Did see some orders of seriously sizzling fajitas delivered. Food did take awhile , but then again, there  were at least 30 of us. I got the seafood soup which was about 20 $. Worth it as it turned out. Maybe a little salty for some but delicious, moderately spicy ( like my Thai food med to Thai hot )  and a huge bowl  packed  with seafood . There were two big crab legs, fish, octopi and about a dozen med large sea       ( not bay ) scallops that , astonishingly were NOT overcooked. Most of the food here is Mex/American. True . But the soup was very much like the Sopa de Marisco  I've had in MX and that a friend from MX has shared with me since.  Thinking back....no shrimp, which would be cheaper than scallops. My only complaints would have to be that was never asked if I wanted something besides water. Would probably have polished of a couple of margaritas . Probably for the best for me but the restaurant lost some $  :-)   Also agree the salsa recipe is weak.  ( And ,really my problem, a fair amount of raw onion ! )Just so surprised that they didn't live down to my expectations . Will be back .

    Can't say enough about the food. It was great! The lady that waited on us wasn't smiling at all. Kinda put a downer on the visit, but the food made us forget.
