Best Margaritas?

ChicagoKat Aug 25, 2008 05:04 AM

I have a cousin coming in from out of town who is a HUGE fan of margaritas (she's on her way to San Diego to get some after a few days in Chicago). Where can she get her fix while here? I thought the margaritas at Adobo Grill were awesome, and probably the best I've had. Canyou recommend anywhere else??

    GO TO LALO'S-don't get the premium ones, get the run-of-the-mill everyday ones, and ON THE ROCKS please, not brain-freeze world.

      I'm a fan of adobo grill. They have a great tequila selection (for me the margarita is all about the tequila). their house margarita is w/ herradura silver and hand squeezed lime.

      If you liked adobo and want to explore tequila some more, try Salud or Salpicon.
      (I don't actually live in Chicago but I do drink tequila pretty much any city I travel to :)

        The margaritas at Adobo Grill are indeed very good - but I also love the ones at Frontera Grill - particularly the one with mezcal. I also think the atmosphere in the bar at Frontera is more fun, and you can eat at the bar as well.

            El Jardin on Clark St. 1 1/2 blocks from Wrigley Field or in Glenview in the section called the Glen. The best Margaritas around!
