People toasting over a table with fruit-themed margaritas.

La Hacienda Chandler

Abuelo’s Mexican Restaurant

The hacienda-style setting at this Texas-based chain instantly invites you in to sit back, relax and enjoy a cold one. The hand-crafted margaritas at Abuelo’s pack a punch and come in various flavors — on the rocks or frozen. Do you want to save on calories?

Barrio Queen

This hip Mexican street-influenced eatery turns out tacos and cocktails amidst a Day of the Dead decor theme — yeah, it’s that good. Barrio Queen takes its margarita-making business seriously, with over a dozen different margs to choose from. The “Who’s Your Daddy” is a favorite with jalapeno-infused tequila, grapefruit juice, lime juice, agave, prickly pear syrup, and pomegranate juice. And if you want to go all out, order the “Death’s Door,” which is noted as “not for the faint of heart” on their menu.
