Best mexican with a bar

We're 8 guys flying in for golf and to celebrate some birthdays. Staying in the Chandler area (don't ask) and looking for a good Mexican joint that has full bar. gotta have the Margaritas. Any suggestions would be appreciated

  1. Personally, I think Chandler is one of the better places to stay for good, diverse food choices. Unfortunately, I can't offer any first-hand experience with margaritas. My friends like ZTejas, which is a chain I find tolerable. I think the following thread has a pretty good list of Chandler options.

    Also, be careful, AZ DUI laws are strict and heavily enforced.

    1. If you get up to Scottsdale, The Mission has awesome margaritas and a very cool bar and great food.

      1. Where will you be staying?

        1. Los Dos Molinos is just north of Chandler and meets your requirements, though the bar area isn't large. Its New Mexican style, which means uber-spicy, but you can either order one of the dishes that isn't as hot (all marked on the menu) or just get the hot elements on the side. Pair the good food with pitchers of the "Kick-Ass" margaritas, and all should be right with the world.

            I'll second the Los Dos margaritas, especially the "kick-ass" part. If you're not careful they will put you right on your ads..

          2. I love El Zocalo in downtown Chandler. Great bar. Great outdoor patio but get there early to make sure you get a seat out there (by 6pm on weekends). Food is fantastic. Some of the best that I've had in Phoenix. Added bonus is Murphy's Law (Irish Pub) and San Tan Brewery, both of which are in the same complex. Enjoy.
