Good Local Mexican in San Antonio Dec 03, 2012
Of course one of the big draws to San Antonio, Texas, is the food, more specifically Tex/Mex, steaks and BBQ. If you ask any local for a list of the best Tex/Mex restaurants in the city, La Margarita will repeatedly be in the top 3. Supposedly the birthplace of sizzling fajitas (not sure what evidence they have to back up the claim), this place is located in one of the larger tourist shopping districts in north San Antonio, Market Square. With a beautiful traditional Mexican facade, there is plenty of seating outside, although from May to September, its probably brutally hot to sit out there unless you are from the area and used to the heat. Another signature of this restaurant (as well as most of the other Tex/Mex places in SA, is the jumbo Margarita with a beer tipped over inside of it. This is great fun (see pictures). As a piece of advice if you should ever order this or simply try it on your own, make sure you continuously raise the beer to allow air to enter the bottle which provides the right Margarita/beer mix as opposed to simply drawing from your straw which drains the Margarita then drains the beer in sequence instead of together! I thought the ambiance was nice - very typical of the genre. The menu was also typical of border Mexican food and the quality was above average but certainly not qualified as excellent in my book. Portion sizes were also OK but not overly large, so you will want to order an app along with your entree if you're hungry. Overall, I'm probably being tough on La Margarita as I would definitely go back.
