Rank Independent Margaritas Chain Margaritas Your Favorites
1 Matteo's Salsa Loco, Fenwick Island, DE Three years in a row, and we can't find a better margarita then "The Tresarita", a combination of Tres Generaciones and Salsa's mix. We've suggested it to a lot of customers this year and everyone left with a smile Tommy Bahama We visited heaven this year, TB's store in NYC. A bar downstairs with tequila in white oak barrels and a restaurant upstairs with knockout margaritas. The margaritas did some damage to our brains and also to our wallets, but who said heaven was free? The Lime, San Diego, CA "Enjoying the best at the Lime!"
2 Los Sarapes, Chalfont, PA Los Sarapes expanded to Horsham but maintained the quality. Their Top Shelf Margarita is made with Sauza Hornitos, Gala or Patron Citronage, and fresh lemon juice. A top notch bar staff who can create your speciality and knows their tequila. PF Changs Fourth year in a row, this sweet and light drink remains a welcome favorite at the chain. It's due to the "Organic Agave Margarita", made with agave nectar. Consistently well made in the many PF Chang's we visited.  South of the Border, Westminster, MD "It's simple, tasty, and you actually taste the tequila"
3 The Lime, San Diego, CA. Back up to the #3 spot, we get more emails telling us how anmazing the margaritas are than from any other bar. Order the Super Premuim Margarita, made with Casa Vieja Premium Silver and Grand Monarch Orange Liqueur. We guarentee a fun evening here. Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville. Solid, dependable and a fun night, you can't go wrong here. We enjoyed the "Living it Up" with Tres Generaciones Anejo, Solerno Blood Orange Liqueur, Finest Call Agave Syrup, and Lime Juice. And, once in your life, you need to do the group singalong to "Margaritaville". Agave, Rehobeth Beach, DE "They informed me a lot about tequila. Go check them out".
4 Consuelos, San Jose, CA. Sit outside in El Jardin or sit inside at Consuelos, and get treated to a top quality margarita. We prefer the Margarita Cazadores using the Blanco. But we actually like to simply ask the bartenders what they are in the mood to make. Chilis. A chain that is committed to the margarita, Chilis continues to deliver. With the Platinum Presidente Margarita featuring Tres Generaciones® Añejo Tequila, Cointreau, Presidente Brandy, Fresh Lime Juice & Agave they have a winning formula.  Los Sarapes, Horsham. "We picked our tequila from the wall for our margarita"
5 Temazcal Tequila, Boston, MA. We enjoyed a margarita made with casa noble reposado, O3 Orange liquor, agave nectar and lime juice that knocked us back a little. Add to that a great environment and the first tequila bar to provide an ipad to pick your tequila and we are sold. Chevy's. Family Mexican restaurant. A quick, cheap meal that keeps the kids happy. But Mom and Dad know a little secret, they can get great margaritas that help take the edge off of a long day at the soccer field or ballpark. Get their Cadillac Margarita™ 1800 Reposado Tequila, triple sec, sweet & sour and a side shot of Grand Marnier. More chips kids? Epazote's, Del Mar, CA "Awesome and with so many to choose from it's a great night for everyone."
6 Nuevo Laredo Cantina, Atlanta, GA. You dream of finding that real Mexican family owned restaurant where they serve great food and margaritas. Nuevo Laredo isn't quite authentic, but it feels real enough. House margaitas are served no nonense and they taste great. Ritz Carlton. Okay, you are sitting in a Ritz drinking a margarita - life must be good. Their bartenders know how to make a very good margarita. Because we like to travel in style, we love the Ritz. Matteo's Salsa Loco, Fenwick Island, DE. "ABSOLUTELY the best margarita I have EVER had!!!
7 Bar Americain, NY, NY. In the heart of the theater district stands an old school bar with classic bartending skills. Just order a top shelf margarita and enjoy. On the Border. Solid, dependable margaritas. With the "OTB Meltdown" you can upgrade your margarita. And our favorite option, the "Grande size" (and we love the line "except where prohibited by law" - an outrage!). Beanies Mexican Restaurant, Port Washington, WI "You wouldn't believe such a great margarita could be found in a small town in Wisconsin."
8 Tres, San Francisco, CA. Formerly "Tres Agaves" the restaurant shortened their name with the launch of a tequila by the same call sign.  There is always something happening here for tequila lovers so check out their website. We prefer a margarita made with Casa Noble. Truluck's. A seafood and steak place, Truluck's pays attention to the old school requirement of a good bar staff. Strong margaritas compliment the upscale atmosphere. Margaritas, Waltham, Mass "I just love their mix"
9 El Vez, Philadelphia, PA.  Back in our top 10, El Vez remains a fun night out. We'd prefer they drop Jose Cuervo as the house margarita, but upgrading to la Flaquita, made with Espolon blanco, agave nectar and lime juice does the trick.  TGIF Fridays. Apparently aiming their sights at Chili's, Friday's has launched a "BFM - Best Fridays Margarita". It's a major upgrade over their previous and anything that improves margarita quality we say "let the war begin". Pocos, Doylestown, PA "Great margaritas!"
10 The Buscena Terrace, Nago, Okinawa. Second year in a row, and our only winning entry from Japan, this bar is located in a fabulous upscale resort that is truly stunning. We enjoyed a margarita made from 1800 Reposado with lime juice.  Tequileria. Let's face it, air travel has become massively stressful. Tequilerias are an oasis in the airports they serve, providing good margaritas that take the stress level down one notch. Los Sarapes, Chalfont, PA "These are the best margaritas I have ever had."
