Good margaritas in Ffd. Cty.

I'm finding a dearth of decent margaritas in the Stamford area - anyone have any suggestions? The type of restaurant/bar doesn't make a difference - holes-in-the-wall are great, as are more upscale places.

    Just over the border into Port Chester, I've had excellent margaritas at Sonora. Fresh lime juice, Cointreau, and a nice selection of sliver tequilas, served straight up in a martini glass...a real cocktail, not a slushie.

      viva zapata in westport, fonda la paloma in cos cob and boxcar cantina in greenwich all have excellent margiaritas!

        Although I would add that Boxcar, which makes an excellent straight up fresh lime, Cointreau and Centennario Plata margarita (aka, the Texas Tornado, if I recall), has a lot of gall charging $17 per...

          I agree - Vivas has great ones - fresh lime juice, and you can actually taste the tequila. Fonda's, in my experience, have been weak.

          Def. Vivas! And, on a day like today, that sounds like a fantastic idea!
