National Margarita Day Is February 22: Here Are The Best Margaritas In Memphis

Places To Get Margaritas In Memphis

Here are some of our favorite local spots for margaritas!

Maybe it's National Margarita Day. Maybe it's Cinco de Mayo. Maybe it's a Tuesday. Whatever day it is, here are some of our favorite local spots for margaritas in Memphis.  

UPDATE 3/20: Shelby Co. Health Dept.’s Directive 19 requires tables at least six feet apart, and parties limited to eight people in the same household.  Restaurants and  bars can stay open until 1 a.m. and allow socially-distanced bar seating. Read the directive here. Please follow all health policies and wear a mask—it's required when not eating or drinking. !

OK, Here's your list of where to get margaritas in Memphis.

Frozen Margaritas, Los Comales  

Giant margaritas, multiple locations...and the food and drinks are super affordable? There's a reason Memphians flock to Los Comales. 

Los Comales locations on Madison and Perkins are open on Feb. 21.

Frozen Margarita, El Toro Loco 
(2617 Poplar Avenue)

Frozen margarita from El Toro Loco, Memphis, Tenn.

You can tell this one's going to be good because the restaurant has "crazy" in the name. El Toro Loco is open Feb. 21.

Frozen house margarita, Swanky's Taco Shop
(4770 Poplar Ave./6641 Poplar Ave.)

swankys-margarita I've always found the margaritas at Swanky's to be tart, fresh, and not too sweet. Swanky’s East Memphis and Germantown locations will be open on Feb. 21 for dine-in and takeout—including to-go margaritas. They’re offering a special off-the-menu Watermelon Margarita for a limited time, too.

House Margarita, Hopdoddy

Hopdoddy has big batches of takeout margaritas available anytime, but February 20 - 22 they’ll be $20 each (normally $29.95). The Roadie is a half-gallon of frozen margaritas and The Rocks is 32 ounces of Hopdoddy’s margaritas on the rocks. Or you can get a single serving for $5 for takeout or dine-in.

Juan’s Margarita On The Rocks, Global Cafe

Global Cafe in Crosstown is known for their international cuisine prepared by refugee chefs, but don’t sleep on their amazing cocktails! They offer margaritas from their full bar, and the visually impressive Mango-Rita sometimes. Tuesdays are Taco Tuesdays, when you can get a 20 ounce marg for $2.95 (!!!) with purchase of taco order. It also comes with chips ’n’ salsa. 

Frozen margarita, Las Delicias 
(4002 Park Avenue, 5689 Quince Road)

When I asked for recommendations for the best margaritas in Memphis, I got a ton of recommendations for Las Delicias on Park. Their margaritas are handmade with real lime juice.

Margarita Sampler, Agavos Cocino & Tequila
(2924 Walnut Grove Rd.)

This place is serious about their tequila slushies. Sure, you could get a classic lime margarita, but why not try a rainbow sampling of different "margarita" flavors?

Breakfast Margarita, Staks Pancake Kitchen 

Staks's Germantown location is open today, and for National Margarita Day they’re offering the Breakfast Margarita. 

Peach Margarita, Los Reyes
(7712 TN-3 N, Millington, TN 38053)

Peach margarita from Los Reyes, Memphis, TN

Los Reyes' peach margaritas are the closest thing to a tequila slushie that you can get. If you're not a big tequila fan, this is the margarita for you - the booze's taste is masked by the sweet peach.

Frozen margarita, Cafe Ole
(959 Cooper St.)

When you need a patio and a cold, classic frozen Tex Mex margarita, right now, make haste to Cafe Ole in Cooper Young. 

Babarita, Babalu
(2115 Madison Ave., 6450 Poplar Ave.)

14437618042_31c83f32fe_z (1) Babalu's Babarita is their version of a margarita, served with a splash of pomegranate juice, and it's one of my favorites in town. Delicious and packs a punch.

Babalu is offering $5 Luna Ritas all day on Monday, February 21.

Margarita, La Playita Mexicana
(6194 Macon Road, Bartlett)

The little beach in Bartlett offers margaritas in small, medium, and Absolutely Enormous, depending on how thirsty you are after you enjoy a heaping plate of their hot Tex Mex menu items. 

Margarita, La Hacienda
(1760 N. Germantown Pkwy)

A Germantown favorite for more than 20 years, La Hacienda, aka "La Ha" is a classic Mexican restaurant with some twists. 

Margarita, Frida's Memphis - temporarily closed
(1718 Madison Ave.)

Frida's two locations in midtown and Collierville offer your classic Tex Mex operation, including house and top shelf margaritas.  Both Frida's locations are closed due to water and weather issues, as of Feb. 22. Call for updates.

Half and Half Margarita, Molly's La Casita  - temporarily closed
(2006 Madison Ave) 

Half and half margarita from Molly's La Casita

The half-and-half margarita is exactly what it sounds like: a glass filled with half frozen margarita and half rocks margarita. It was hands-down the most popular answer on Facebook and Twitter when I asked for your favorite margaritas in the Memphis area. Sadly, Molly's is temporarily closed at the moment. 

Margarita, Margaritas
(multiple locations)

You’ve seen their giant colorful Tex Mex signing at their many locations—Margaritas is your standard Tex Mex restaurant, a regional chain with about 20 locations in the Mid-South. What you see is what you get. I give them extra props for calling their Whitehaven location “Margaritas of Elvis”!

Margarita, Crazy Cactus

Crazy Cactus on Summer is open for dine-in and takeout food and margaritas on February 21, 2021.

El Mezcal

I actually went to Agave Maria for the first time tonight with a friend to celebrate National Margarita Day with their 2 for 1 margarita special but I do LOVE Los Compadres (this is my best bang for your buck place). Babalu and Molly's are also two of our favorites, but Tugs (on Mud Island) has pretty great Margaritas for 5.50$ 3-7pm every day PLUS a whole host of cheap apps! When the weather is nice you can't beat a margarita and some fried pickles on their patio =)
