I have been to this resteraunt several times. It is a great place to eat. I have not had any experiences there, but it is always so packed with people. It may be just too busy durring hours of operation. If you check out a book by Norm Gauthier he did an over night in the resteraunt. The story goes a prisoner hung himself. On the overnight watch Mr. Gauthier got some recordings of sounds they later figured out to be the sounds of someone stepping onto a cot and then stepping off ie.. hanging himself. And about a hour before that the got an evp saying “in an hour” The guards used to check the prisoners every hour. Was this the prisnor making plans to hang himself before the next bed check??? This is all to the best of my memory, it has been a while since I read the book. There is rumored to be another ghost as well. check out the book, it is good reading. The title is something like Ghost of New Hampshire by Norm Gauthier. Have fun. Kathy

P.S. I have lived in NH all my life and never heard of the ghost in this place throwing food or consuming it or drinks..I believe in the ghosts,see my above comment, but the food and drink, well, maybe the customers had one too many moss tequilas!!!!!!! Kathy

I think this is mixing up several different stories that I’ve heard in my times in NH. In Keene, NH, right on main street, there is a Margaritas that sits on what used to be the jail. It is the jail Henry David Thoreau spent time in for not paying his taxes. What are the chances of 2 different Margaritas in NH being where jail cells once stood?

well I can tell you that I once had a strange experience, I was only twenty one and had just gotten over serious case of the flu. My best friend wanted to take me out to eat, so off we went to margaritas. the old holding cells are actually were people can eat, away from the bar. towards the end of our meal my friend got up to use the mens room, leaving me by myself.Well as I was sitting there I suddenly became unbelievably cold!!!! but I thought nothing of it, chalking it off to the high fever I had the last 6 days and pulled on my jacket well the waitress walking our table stopped and looked at me. She asks”Is it cold in here or is just me?” NO I replied it is freezing in here. here I am with my back to the table facing the waitress when all of the sudden her eyes became huge as saucers, and at that second I heard from behind me the waterglasses tipping over!! spilling my water and my friends drink as well… From that time on (12 years to be exact I refuse to sit down stairs) I would rather deal with the obnoxious drunks and smoke.

It sounds cool and i will more than likely go there after i get out of iraq. I live in Nashua. The thing is its more likely a hoax. The waiters and waitresses are messing with you to atract more people. The cold probaly ac turned up high in that area. Spilt food/drinks. Waiter sees you leave to goto the bathroom. More than likely if they thought they had a real ghost they would have a video cammera so they could publicaly show they are haunted and have lots of customers and sense they havent. eh not really believable. Im sure they do out of the norm things to atract customers by doing the waiter bit and also maybe paying people to go eat there and act like somthings happening to them.

BOBO BELZINGER, You are wrong, The jail Thoreau was in was in Concord MASS, He was arrested for not paying his poll tax to protest the Mexican war.

Mmmm, before Manchester got its own Magaritas my wife and I frequented the one in Concord for about five years. I always requested one of the cells and never had a problem with this supposed ghost..oh wait that is because there are no ghosts, just peoples overactive imaginations.

I lived in NH several years ago. This was a great place to eat. We never had any strange occurances, even though we would occasionally eat in the “cells”. Still fun to think about the history of the building itself.

Yes, it is the Margarita’s in Concord (Not Keene). It was once the Jail. I worked at the restaurant there for many years. The Discovery Channel came and did a documentary about it. (Never did see the episode, but was there when camera crew came). It doesn’t make sense that the servers would purposely throw a customer’s food. I had never heard about the food throwing before visiting this site. I did hear that the ghost was named George. It was creepy to be there at night when the customers were gone.

I went to this restaurant the other day, and they had a ghost team come in and the ghost was very mad because his name is not Gorge it is Joe. So don’t make him mad =]

I used to work for this company and still know some managers of various NH locations. A few years ago one of them showed me a large envelope marked “Concord ghost pictures”, which had several 8 by 10″ photos of ghosts in that particular restaurant. These pics certainly didn’t look fake, and there were clear characteristics of numerous ghosts within them. I’ve never anything like it in an amatuer photo. Trust me, that place is very haunted; I’ve seen the proof!

I went to eat here and I nearly soiled myself before the meal. I was molested by George in more ways than one. I highly recommend it, the chimichangas are divine!!!!

I’ve eaten at both restaurants and even lived in Keene for more than 20 years. I have never heard that the Margaritas Restaurant in Keene was having any haunting. Now the Concord Margaritas Restaurant I’ve heard a lot of stories about that place. On a busy night or a slow night I have had minor experiences with cold spots, to having my hair stand up on its ends to goosebumps, but never a bad feeling. So if anyone does an actual investigation I would love to hear the findings.
