Dallas' Margarita Mile


As a Dallas Real Estate Agent, I enjoy being able to recommend different restaurants to my clients. As an adopted Texas, I know how important a good margarita is.

Known as the Margarita Mile, this list features the best and brightest margaritas that Dallas has to offer. Local Chef Julian Rodarte and Visit Dallas invite you to take this tequila experience to savor and discover energizing drinks throughout some of Dallas’ best neighborhoods. From a classic frozen margarita to hand-crafted creations, Dallas has staked their claim as the Home of the Frozen Margarita.  

So, raise a glass to a refreshing experience and start making plans to try as many creations as possible.
