18 Best Margaritas in Austin

I recently took my mother-in-law, who also enjoyed her frozen mango marg and described it as “subtle, delicious, yet powerful.” That’s a good testament to the quality of their margaritas.  

Fonda San Miguel

Maudie’s Tex-Mex

This “clean, bright, and perfectly simple” beverage consists of Don Julio’s Blanco Tequila, Cointreau, and freshly squeezed lime juice with a salted rim, which meets all the requirements for an excellent margarita.  

The Top Shelf Margarita at Eldorado is just that– top shelf. Guests can order their Tequila of choice mixed with freshly squeezed lime juice Cointreau and add a fruit flavor if preferred. Enjoy it served on the rocks with a salt or tajin rim. 

Eldorado Cafe

An Austin institute since 1977, Trudy’s Mexican Cafe has been serving some great Tex-Mex for a while, but their Mexican Martini is one for the books.  


Everything on the drinks menu at DeNada is exceptional, but their frozen margaritas in the notably collectible pink cups are considered by many to be the best margaritas in Austin.
