Monday Is National Margarita Day

It's a holiday we hold dear: National Margarita Day, on February 22nd. Luckily, there are a plethora of Mexican restaurants in Uptown at which to celebrate. The ones with asterisks after their names actually serve margaritas. We've eaten at most and intend to try them all. Enjoy!
  • Cantina 1910,* 5025 N Clark, open for brunch, lunch and dinner. Throw back a couple margaritas during Happy Hour, 5pm-7pm
  • Carmela's Taqueria, 1206 W Lawrence
  • El Gallo Bravo #51429 W Montrose. In Rayan Plaza, and open until 2am.
  • El Palmar,* 1008 W Irving Park. Another late night stand-by.
  • Fiesta Mexicana,* 4806 N Broadway
  • La Ciudad,* 4515 N Sheridan -- a BYOB, but you can bring your own tequila and they'll whip you up a great pitcher of margaritas. On the wagon? Just order the pitcher.
  • Lindo Guadalajara, 4761 N Clark. No booze, but open 24 hours, and very friendly.
  • Rique's Cocina Mexicana, 5004 N Sheridan -- sadly, not open on Mondays, but show up Tuesday through Sunday and BYOB.
  • Taqueria El Ranchito,* 4651 N Clark, open long hours, cheap food, reasonably priced margaritas, what's not to love?
  • Taqueria Mr. Salsa, 1025 W Montrose
  • Tiztal Cafe, 4631 N Clark -- no liquor license, but great Mexican food for breakfast, brunch and lunch. Try an oatmeal shake
  • Tolotzin Mexican Cuisine,* 4431 N Broadway. Lunch specials 11am-3pm, and delicious dinners. BYOB, so bring your tequila and they'll whip you up some margaritas.
