1. Mad Taco
This Bryan College Station original has become a local favorite in recent years for several reasons, but their Margarita Flights are definitely at the top of that list! From the Classic with tequila, triple-sec, and lime, to unique creations like Vanilla Bean, Pineapple Basil, and even Beet– Mad Taco's "Mad Ritas" will not disappoint!
What The Locals Get: "You can't go wrong at Mad Taco, but I always get a Margarita Flight with the Cham-Mango, Pineapple Basil, Vanilla Bean, and Classic. Don't forget your order of GQ & some Par-Gar fries for the table (or yourself), and a Mahi-Mahi taco and a Cubano." - Chris R.
2. Taco Crave
This no-frills taqueria in Historic Downtown Bryan is the perfect spot for authentic street tacos and delicious classic margaritas. The build-your-own taco options include timeless favorites like pastor, carnitas, and fajita, as well some Taco Crave creations like "Crave Chicken," which includes a savory mix of chicken, spinach, mushrooms, and more. All of this with a side of rice and charro beans adds up to one of our favorite places to treat ourselves.
What The Locals Get: "Spicy Carnitas, Fajita Chicken, Fajita Beef, and a house margarita!" - Sammi T.
In the spirit of Downtown Bryan's Margarita Mayhem, May's #cocktailofthemonth is a Strawberry-Mango Rita - Camarena Reposado Tequila, strawberry Liqueur, triple-sec, lime juice, mango nectar, fresh strawberry and sweet and sour chili rim. #margaritamayhem #rxpizzadtb #rxpizzacs
A local pizza joint may seem like an unlikely spot for a quality margarita, but just trust us– RX makes a mean "Tropical Heat Margarita" featuring Dulce Vida Pineapple Jalapeño Tequila, pineapple juice, and jalapeño simple syrup among other ingredients. RX also continuously raises the bar with their monthly featured cocktails & pizzas.
What The Locals Get: "My favorite pizza is always The Rosie, but add spinach, and I love the Tropical Heat Margarita. It's got just the right mix of spicy and sweet." - Chris S.
Chuy's is a Texas-original, and has made quite a home for itself in Bryan College Station over the years. It's not uncommon to find a line out the front door for a table, but for good reason! Their Tex-Mex classics and amazing margaritas are hard to beat.
What The Locals Get: "They make a custom margarita that I love! It’s Casamigos tequila with fresh lime juice and a light wave of agave. I’ve suggested they call it the Sophie, but that hasn’t stuck---yet. I would be fine with Sophia if they want to make it more Latina…" - Sophie C.
Conveniently located right on Northgate, Chimy's is a favorite among Texas A&M students, local residents, and visitors alike. Come for the margaritas, stay for the lively atmosphere and good music.
What The Locals Get: "The margs taste great and are pretty cheap, and the tacos are good, too! It's usually the first stop on a Northgate bar crawl." - Rachel A.
Fuzzy's is a great place to catch Aggie sports, hang out with friends around a table full of "trashcan nachos", and enjoy some of the best margaritas in town.
What The Locals Get: "My favorite from Fuzzy's is the Aggie Razz marg (a maroon & white, A&M-themed marg)." - Bishop T.
Hopdoddy is located right in the heart of Century Square, so it's the perfect place to relax after a day of shopping, or grab a drink on the patio and enjoy some live tunes. This is another spot you might not expect to have a great margarita, but trust us, they've got quite the selection, and they're all amazing!
What The Locals Get: "I love the Doble Fina Margarita at Hopdoddy, they are on the sweeter side but SO good!" - Kayla D.
