Looking for a restaurant or lounge south of Boston that serves a good Margarita on the rocks...South Boston, Quincy, Randolph. It's been difficult...searching every weekend. Please any suggestions would be appreciated!

    Enjoy your search and be sure to try La Paloma in North Qunicy. They have great magaritas!!

        Yeah, I'd get a margarita and maybe an app at La Paloma, then go elsewhere. I was not happy with my meal there.

        Exactly, have a drink, but for your own sake don't eat there!

        haven't tried it there but possibly Franklin Southie (S Boston)? like most places, though, they don't measure, so consistency could be an issue

          Surprisingly, the "Fat Cat" in Quincy Center does a very good Margarita. Jimmy, Bobby and Gina know how to execute this very well. It works for me since we don't do LaPaloma anymore. Goes real well with their BBQ'd menu items. Great on a hot Summer day when they were here. Might just have one tonight before the weather really changes to Winter.

            This is easy. El Sarape in Weymouth. They have a whole menu of margaritas on the rocks or frozen. Food is good too. Try the pork caseros.

              Nitpicking, I know, but El Sarape is actually in Braintree, albeit a stone's throw (maybe literally) from the Weymouth line. On top of which, the neighborhood's called Weymouth Landing!

              The food is terrific, I agree.

                I've been there more in the past five years than to any other restaurant. Always a satisfying meal. rarely extrodinary but always very good.

                  My first visit came a week or so after my first (and hopefully last) meal at Acupulco's in Norwood. Needless to say, the comparison made El Sarape taste even better!

                I'll 2nd (3rd??) El Sarape in Weymouth Landing. The town also just redid the free municiple lot behind El Serape so there is plenty of FREE well-lit parking available.

                I haven't been to El Sarape since I've had my baby and have been craving their chicken livers and a magarita something crazy.

                  it was the first place my wife wanted to go after our daughter was born. There was no denying her Margarita and Chile Relleno craving.
