Our final stop before naptime was the splash pad in downtown Valparaiso so we wanted to eat lunch somewhere kid friendly and close to the splashpad. We found many pubs and cafes and all of them appeared to welcome children — one even had “Children Welcome” printed on their windows, just to make sure you knew it was okay to stop in. We chose to eat at Margarita’s Bar and Grill  (21 E. Lincolnway, Valparaiso) because mexican food is always a good option!

Margarita’s offered several options for kids meals and many options for fruity flavored margaritas and yummy entrees. Chips and salsa are brought to your table and the salsa is great! It should be since it’s made fresh in the restaurant! The staff was very kind and helpful, refills on drinks and chips and salsa were quick and Lulu called everyone her friend.

I had the chicken fajitas and I’m going to go ahead and say that they were the BEST fajitas I’ve ever had in my life! The chicken was deliciously seasoned and I just couldn’t get enough! Jay had a mango margarita and really enjoyed the quick break from his paleo diet routine. He said that his entree, the Margarita’s special was really good too. As with most toddlers, Lulu did not finish her meal but she did not complain.

Meals were about $10 per person (adult).
