National Tequila Day
With National Tequila Day coming up (July 24th – that’s tomorrow), we realized we were letting you guys down… Even with our plethora of Houston guides, we had not yet given you what you probably want most – a guide to the best margaritas in Houston! Now, we certainly don’t need it to be National Tequila Day to enjoy a good margarita. Particularly with this summer Houston heat and humidity, we find ourselves craving margaritas on the regular. Frozen or on the rocks, we don’t discriminate!
Of course, given the abundance of Tex-Mex and Mexican restaurants in Houston, it’s no surprise we are blessed with amazing margarita options here! Indeed, there is no shortage of good margaritas here in Houston. In fact, we had to narrow our list down because we had so many we wanted to include. But that means we’ve compiled a list of the very best of the best!
In terms of our criteria for picking the best, a few things came into play:
(1) the taste, of course,
(2) the strength of it – not too weak and not too strong – though if it was too strong, we didn’t necessarily complain!
(3) the presentation – I mean, are you surprised with this one? Insta-worthy, please!
(4) The ambience of the environment in which we were enjoying the margarita. Details matter and we definitely took into account the restaurants and bars, not just the actual margarita.
By the way, creating these guides is always a fun team effort for us! Doing the research (aka tastings) for this guide wasn’t such a bad job. Anyway, we hope you enjoy the commentary from various members of the team.
Now, keep on reading for the eight best margaritas in Houston, in alphabetical order. As well, at the very bottom we’ve included a handy map so you can locate each spot easily. ¡Salud!
