Margarita’s @ Dempsey

Family was in the mood for Mexicaaaan. Decided to try somewhere new, but I don’t think we’ll be back here any time soon. I personally felt that the owner was a bit snobby and overly pushy, which I do not like. Dining is supposed to be a fun and enjoyable experience! Oh well maybe it’s just me.

A short 2-page menu that basically consists of appetizers, various burritos, different meats and a few desserts. We ordered a few things to share, which I always think is a good idea! You get to try lots of stuff and you don’t get sick of your own course.

Kitchen Sink Burrito ($20)

Chicken, beef, refried beans, rice, salsa, cheese, guacamole, sour cream etc etc… really everything that you might find in a burrito. It’s humongous and very filling!

Pardon the very bad photo, my brothers were very hungry.

Enchiladas with Breen in Ranchera Sauce ($18)

Shredded beef rolled in soft corn tortillas, topped with red sauce of ranchera. According to the menu, this is a very traditional way of doing enchiladas. Love the red sauce, it’s slightly sweet and slightly tangy. The brown mess in the background is mushroooooms! Almost a paste but not quite so. Very tasty! This was the most unique dish of the night, imo!

Fajitas ($32 for chicken, beef or veggies, $34 for chicken and beef). The above is beef!

Can you feel the heat of my fajitas from the photo??? 😀 This place prides themselves on using freshly air-flown meat that’s marinated and grilled to perfection. They’re served with sautéed onions, lemon, 5 tortillas, guacamole, shredded cheese and red salsa. These were rather tough though, I think Chili’s does a better job at fajitas. Also not extremely tasty.

One thing great about Dempsey is the abundance of space. Everywhere’s nice and spacious, with really high ceilings! So comfortable.

Owner says all her furniture/ decorations are from Mexico. Although the food is nothing to shout about, it’s done up like a nice cosy Mexican home. Check out how elaborate the painting on the chair is!
I think prices are rather reasonable, especially if you get the burritos! Also quite a comfortable place to be in. Saw lots of groups of young people, as well as a few couples! Can check it out if you’re in Dempsey and wondering what there is to eat.
