Drink Your Way Through Kentucky On The Margarita Marathon

Kentucky is home to some excellent Mexican restaurants, and nothing pairs better with a platter of enchiladas than a margarita. Whether you enjoy them frozen or on the rocks, these sweet drinks perfectly cool down a spicy meal. We’ve featured some amazing food trips and trails throughout the Bluegrass State (check out our Taco Trail and our Chocolate Shop Road Trip), and we decided it was time to round up some of the best margaritas and Mexican food.

This “Margarita Marathon” is a stretch of places in and around Louisville that could all be visited in a long weekend if you’re dedicated to finding the best in town. Drink your way through Kentucky on the Margarita Marathon and report back with which stop was your favorite.

You can visit these restaurants in any order you like; we’ve organized them into the shortest straight-line route. For a customizable map with driving directions, click here.

While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately.
