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