Dining Guide | 19 Valley Restaurants to Celebrate National Margarita Day

Posted on: February 18th, 2018 by Taryn Jeffries 1 Comment

Taste is subjective, right? While you may not be able to get your friends to agree that a jalapeno margarita is better than the classic version or vice versa, I think that we can all agree that National Margarita Day was a phenomenal idea, and we all have fellow marg lover Todd McCalla to thank for this tart and refreshing food holiday.

Whether you prefer your frozen or on the rocks, with or without salt there is no debating that margaritas are THE most popular tequila-based beverage in the US and your favorite Valley restaurants are all in favor of celebrating all things margaritas on Tuesday, February 22nd.

Phoenix Bites Recommends | A classic is, well, classic and always makes a great choice. My personal favorite (not encompassed in their special promotion) is their hibiscus flower margarita. I mean, I’m a sucker with anything that is made with elderflower and adding in white peach and hibiscus flower I’m done for!
