Margaritas Mexican Restaurant, famous for its eat-all-you can Sunday brunch, is keeping the popular event a main stay activity for its customers in Pasadena.

“We’ve had it (Sunday brunch) forever. We will definitely keep it forever. It is one of our popular events that we have on Sunday brunch and we have a lot of people coming by so we definitely will not take it away,” said Ruby Bugarin, co-owner of Margaritas.

Families can enjoy the Sunday brunch after attending church service or in the afternoon, Bugarin added.

The Champagne Sunday Brunch is available every Sunday from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. and offers “a ton of food.”

The buffet has rice and beans, chicken meat, seafood, chicharrones or fried pork skin, home-made tortillas and an omelet station. Bugarin added that the entrees during the brunch also includes menudo, pozole and one of her favorite stew called frijoles charros that is translated as cowboy beans in English.

“It’s whole beans (pinto beans) added with steak, chorizo and onions. It is like a bucket chili kind of soup, but it’s delicious. It’s a little bit spicy but not too spicy,” Bugarin said describing the frijoles charros.

While there will always be meats, beef, chicken, and seafood, the menus and entrees vary every Sunday, Bugarin said. Although, she said the regular entrees includes marinated chicken and shrimp rancheros. Bugarin said the rancheros is basically shrimp with tomatoes, onions, served in a very simple Mexican style.

For the drinks, diners can choose from a variety of flavored waters or aguas frescas. Margaritas has lemonade or agua de limon, coconut, banana, melon waters and a host of other flavors that vary from week to week. For those who want to enjoy hot drinks, they can try the famous Mexican hot chocolate and coffee.

And the price for the Sunday brunch, $15.99 for adults and $7.99 for children.

James Macpherson: Now, that’s really good. That is a good deal. And with this time, people can do it, yeah, when they get back from church or just anytime in the afternoon. That’s perfect.

For the upcoming Mother’s Day in May, Margaritas will be holding a special Sunday brunch with more special foods and drinks. Bugarin said the restaurant is usually swamped during Mother’s Day and advised clients to book and make reservations in advance to avoid any inconvenience.

She assured however, the Margaritas can accommodate large parties on that special day from eight guests and up. Bugarin recommends reservations for those large parties.

Another big holiday that Margaritas is anticipating is the Cinco de Mayo, although Bugarin said they will not offer a brunch on that holiday because it does not fall on a Sunday.

Margaritas Mexican Restaurant is located at 155 S. Rosemead Blvd. Pasadena. For reservations, please call (626) 449-4193 or check their website at http://www.margaritasmexicanfood.com/index.html.
