Today, February 22, is national margarita day. You don’t need more of a reason than that to head out and grab a drink.

Based out of Dallas, Texas, we here at the Place’s team have some top spots for margaritas. Dallas is, after all, the birthplace of the frozen margarita.

Here are your insider picks for the best places to grab a margarita in Dallas. Cheers!

The rooftop patio has an outstanding view (and it is warm enough to sit outside right now in Dallas). The margaritas are handmade and delicious, the atmosphere is just right and the view is Instagram-worthy.

The tacos are perfection and the margaritas are $2 all day for national margarita day. You can’t ask for more.

A little more upscale, José cultivates a trendy crowd and fresh takes on Mexican cuisine. The margaritas match the menu, with new twists on the classic, and the atmosphere is perfect for date night or a night out with friends. And, like almost everywhere in Dallas, there’s patio dining.

Gloria’s Latin Cusine

Gloria’s is the place to go for the perfect classic three ingredient Mexican margarita. Gloria’s is also a prime people-watching spot. And the food is good to boot.

Mariano’s Hacienda

The home of the first-ever frozen margarita, Mariano’s is a must. 47 years ago, Mariano Martinez got a slushy from 7-Eleven and inspiration struck. He got the idea to make frozen margarita’s and the rest is history.
