You've signed up to take on the Margarita Mile, scoped out all the coolest drinks and added some sightseeing to your margarita inspired adventures in Dallas. But don't forget about all the tasty food! Here's a sample of the best flavors to savor on the Margarita Mile.



You can't beat the OG. Home to the world's first frozen margarita machine, Mariano's churns out fajitas and 'ritas like it's going out of style. Their mesquite grilled fajitas are a must if you're looking to chow down. The sizzle and the crack of grilled shrimp, steak or chicken as it arrives to your table will make you swoon. Pair it with one of their famous margaritas and you'll be set! Add one of the three homemade dipping sauces, including herb garlic butter, Mariano's special BBQ or the extra spicy serrano salsa to your meal for an extra kick.

The Rustic

In the heart of Uptown, The Rustic brings an elevated yet approachable the farm to table experience to the Margarita Mile. Think of it as elevated southern comfort food. Grab a picnic table out back and treat yourself to the Drunk Chick beer can hen, Triple Chop bone-in pork chop or sides of wood-grilled portobellos or broccolini. Pair that with the Legendary Rustic 'Rita then finish off the experience with Peanut Butter Pie that tastes like momma used to make. Don't miss out on the family-style brunch every weekend featuring hot chicken and smoked cheddar grits for the table.


Beto & Son

Just a stone's throw from the west side of the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, Beto & Son has become one of the hottest spots in Dallas. Their menu is stacked high full of options for even the most discerning palates. They're also vegan friendly - the vegan nachos, tacos and portobello mushroom fajitas are solid choices that are packed with flavor. Add Chef Beto's tableside guacamology for a little tasty entertainment. And yes, it's extra – but oh so worth it. Ask your friendly bartender to whip up their infamous liquid nitrogen margs. You'll marvel as they're crafted right before your eyes, with your choice of fun flavors like mango or strawberry. The sorbet-like texture is the perfect choice for those that want to enjoy a sweet treat.

Terry Black's Barbecue

Woah, barbecue?! This place is not your average margarita stop. While many margs are synonymous with mexican flavors, Terry Black's bring a new twist with their very own Black Margarita. While what makes the drink black is a secret, how delicious their food is a not a secret in Texas. Take a break from the chips and queso and join the line to order fall-off-the-bone ribs or brisket by the pound. 



¡Say Olé at Jose! Jose on Lovers is a Guadalajara-inspired restaurant that features bold flavors and exquisite drinks.  Take our word for it – you could order the seafood enchiladas every time and be as happy as a clam. Sautéed shrimp and bay scallops fill this dish that's served with love just the way Abuela would have wanted it. The pozole verde will warm your soul all year long. Soak up every drop of this traditional pozole verde from Guadalajara with pulled chicken breast, white hominy and green tomatillo and poblano broth.
