Another Award Winning Margarita
Margarita Texas Mix Debut a Success

During the year, we asked visitor’s to MargaritaTexas.com to vote on their favorite restaurant margarita in Texas for all of 2009.   This was the second year running and a record number of margarita enthusiasts from all over the lone star state chimed in to let us know their favorite.

The restaurant with the most votes received a plaque recognizing this achievement and now has bragging rights for the entire year.  Many delicious margaritas were chosen on the ballot but only one could be named Best Margarita in Texas 2009.

The Top 5 Visitor Voted Margaritas for 2009 Best in Texas are:

1st Gringo’s Mexican Kitchen

cafe-ole-small Cafe Ole – San Antonio
527 River Walk Street,
San Antonio, TX 78205 (map)

Rudy’s Grill and Cantina – Cypress
11760 Grant Rd., Cypress, TX 77429 (map)

Mi Tierra – San Antonio
218 Produce Rd, San Antonio, TX 78207 (map)


Once voting ended, we had to make it out to one of the Gringo’s locations to see what all of the hype was about.  Customers to the restaurant may have a hard time choosing from their lengthy margarita menu but ours was easy with the help of our knowledgeable waiter, Carlos.    After the first few sips, it was apparent why everyone craves their margaritas.   All three variations we consumed were masterfully balanced with fresh ingredients.  You can read our breakdown of each in our review here.   There was no doubt that Gringo’s was deserving of this praise.


There were many positive comments left for most of the entries, including a few that stood out for Gringo’s:

  •  “I don’t drink. Really, I have never found alcohol I like… until I had a Margarita from Gringos”
  • “They make the best Grand Gold Margarita as far as I’m concerned! If you haven’t tried it…your missing something great!”
  • “The gradolupe rita is super smooth and totally unique! I tell everyone about them and they all fall in love with it too!”

Check back early 2010 when we open voting for the Best in Texas 2010 version.   Also, make sure you make it back to your computer safely to place that vote by not drinking and driving.
