    OK there is probably already a thread some where regarding really good margaritas in the Columbus Ohio area but being new I don’t have the time to read through 33,456,000 threads to find it.

    Anyone know of REALLY good margarita in a restaurant setting. I will need a few Friday night after moving here! lol

    Your opinions will help me out!

    I enjoy the El Vaquero margaritas as well, plus they usually have special deals on them on the weekend.

    La Fogata, blood orange margaritas on the rocks. We generally order by the pitcher…usually about 3 or 4 pitchers at a time. :)

    Barrio. On Tuesdays, all tapas are 1/2 price. Drink prices are pretty reasonable.

    There’s a Mexican Restaurant on the North end named Fiesta Jalisco. Fresh baked chips (ask for the salsa burro as well as their house salsa), excellent entrees, huge booths to sink in, and great margaritas. Their margarita night is Thursday ($3.25), but I order mine with Cazadores Tequila. They have a variety of margaritas to choose from as well – like the Cadillac.

    I’m not a huge fan of Fiesta Jalisco’s food (not better than el Vaquero to me to justify the drive) but their salsa and margaritas are exceptional.

    Despite much effort I have yet to find a good Margarita in Columbus.

    A good Margarita does NOT have:
    Crushed ice
    fruit juice (except for lime)
    Does not come in fruity flavors
    Is not churning in some machine
    “Gold Tequila”

    THIS is a good simple margarita:

    1 cup tequila, preferably a young silver or reposado 100% agave tequila–look for widely distributed ones like El Tesoro, Cuervo Tradicional, and Herradura, or search out the distinctive small production tequilas like Chamucos or Suave Patria

    1/2 cup Cointreau or other orange liqueur

    1/3 cup fresh lime juice, plus a little extra for moistening the rim of the glasses

    A little sugar if necessary

    About 1/3 cup coarse (Kosher) salt for crusting the rim of the glasses

    About 3 cups medium ice cubes

    In a small pitcher, combine the tequila, orange liqueur and lime. Taste and decide if you think the mixture needs to be a little sweeter or a little tangier (keep in mind that it will taste a little tangier once it’s been shaken). Add a bit more lime or a touch of sugar, if necessary.

    Pour half of the margarita mixture into a cocktail shaker, add half of the ice cubes. Shake vigorously for about 15 seconds (this is important to achieve the perfect strength–some of the ice needs to melt into the margarita–and the right degree of frostiness). Strain into the prepared glasses, then repeat with the remaining margarita mixture. Relax and enjoy.

    Is that so hard?

    Right under El Vaquero for me.

    Jalisco = A
    El Vaquero = A+

    Sorry Tenzo, but margarita machines are awesome and always a catalyst to great parties. Especially when served by Mr. Barack-a-rita himself.

    MARGARITA ELITIST!!!

    Just had to do it :)

    I think Banana Bean served me the only margarita I’ve ever had in Columbus that used fresh, real lime juice instead of a mix.
