Places To Get Margaritas In Memphis

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.

 Molly’s La Casita (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.

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.

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.

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.

Peach Margarita, Los Reyes (3024 Covington Pike)

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.

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

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.

    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 =)
