Since 1981

Jorge Cortez traveled Mexico, exploring Monterrey, Laredo and Guadalajara in search of unique and different cuisine to bring to San Antonio. Coming upon a regional specialty that was once only familiar to vaqueros, butchers and their families, Jorge thought a dish of sizzling skirt-steak served on cast-iron plates would be popular. Although skeptical at first of the now-famous “Sizzling Fajitas”, Pedro was extremely proud to see his sons taking initiative and expanding the family business. In 1981, Jorge created and opened La Margarita Restaurant & Oyster Bar, offering Sizzling Fajitas and Seafood.
