WHAT CUSTOMERS SAY
I have followed Margaret’s Cantina for a long time. I discovered their food when they were on East Franklin Street. And even thought Margaret “has left building”, Young, the new owner, continues the focus on good food and a sense of community. The new specials add a different flavor to the cuisine. And whether you come to the restaurant alone or with four or more, you can enjoy a home-cooked meal!
We love coming to Margaret’s Cantina. Margaret’s is our favorite Southwestern Restaurant in the Triangle. The food is always fresh with a focus on local ingredientsand at a great price! Also, the margaritas are excellent!!
My family and I took on a self-imposed mission: to find the most authentic Mexican food since we relocated to Chapel Hill from Southern California. We found it: Margaret’s Cantina. From the first bite the freshness of the ingredients, knowledge of preparation and the spirit of baja was evident. The service is grade A and the location at Timberlyne Shopping Center just off I-40 is perfect. There is literally something for everyone on the menu and it will leave no one disappointed. Love this place!
I have been a “regular” at Margaret’s for over 21 years and have introduced many friends and family members to their great food and staff over those 2+ decades. I have shared many meals and conversations there! One of my favorite memories was when my co-workers treated me to dinner as my “going away” party before I started my freshman year at UNC. Now I am a professor at UNC and still love Margaret’s as much now as then. I have never been disappointed with a meal there – my go to is the tempeh taco plate and my husband’s is the enchillada style burrito and we both love the nachos. Margaret’s is the best!
