Best Margaritas....

A colleague of mine is graduating with her 2nd Masters this summer, and is eager to celebrate with her drink of choice-Margaritas. Im on the task of suggesting a place with excellent margaritas (im thinking fresh ingredients, not out of a bottle). The food should probably be decent, too.
Watertown, Belmont, Cambridge, Waltham, Lexington, Arlington....

thanks chowhounders.

    1. I like the drinks at Rudy's in Teel Sq. in Somerville. The horny toad there is really nice and not too sweet. The food is not great, though, aside from the chips and salsa. So I usually get a drink or two there and then cross the street to eat at House of Tibet.

        I really dislike Rudy's.
        Ole is quite good. Really any good cocktail-oriented bar should be able to make you a good margarita.

      2. I like the margaritas at Lone Star Taco bar in Allston. Had some yesterday, in fact. Yummy! I also like the food there, especially the chili con queso, and corn.

        2. While not a traditional margarita (or Mexican restaurant for that matter) I really like the blood orange margarita at Scampo in the Liberty Hotel. Right on the other side of the bridge from Cambridge.
