When you're craving Mexican, head to Margaritas Mexican Restaurant
When you’re craving Mexican while in Dover, there’s only one place to go: Margaritas. The expansive menu includes, of course, margaritas, and if you can’t quite decide which margarita will be right for you, you can order a margarita flight, so you can try a few different options. Each margarita starts with just tequila and fruit. Seasonal margaritas are always on tap, such as the fall-ready cinnamon apple margarita.
Of course, you can’t just visit Margaritas and not try the food, too. Favorites include the chicken chimichangas, quesadillas, stuffed poblanos and the tasting platter that comes with a little bit of everything. The best part? If you fall in love with Margaritas on your first visit, you can find this regional chain all around New England.
