Frozen Margarita / Mexican

Being new to the Chicago area, we're having a hard time finding "tex-mex" and a good frozen margarita. Not that we don't enjoy all the great Chicago authentic Mexican offerings (mole's, etc), but sometimes you just get a craving for taco's/fajitas and a frozen margarita - Uncle Julio's just isn't cutting it.

We live in West Town, but are more than willing to drive around the city to find what we're looking for.

  1. Haven't been yet but just saw this place on Thrilllist and I am definitely going to check it out. It is Cantina 46 in Rivernorth it says. Here is the link:

    1. You just took me back to my first-ever frozen margarita experience at Trudy's in Austin (more years ago than I care to remember).

      1. Pancho Pistolas in Bridgeport on 31st is great. Good fajitas, good magaritas and some outside seating.

        1. Lalo's on a good day might float your boat.

          Nuevo Leon on 18th st.will prolly quench your Tex Mex needs for food in a big way, but they are byob.

          You WILL find a place. Ask your neighbors too. I'd bet you'll find a great joint tucked away not too far.
