Drink Your Way Through Nashville On The Margarita Marathon
Nashville may not have an “official” Margarita Marathon, but we definitely think this grand ol’ city needs one of its own. We scoured local restaurants and eateries for insanely good margaritas, and this list is our comprehensive guide to the best in the city. Whether or not you’re a fan of margaritas post or pre-Cinco de Mayo, these incredible cocktails in Nashville may just have you celebrating all year long. How many of them have you tried?
1. Rosepepper Cantina - East Nashville
Rosepepper is not just known around town for their strong margaritas: they're known around town for their PITCHERS of margaritas. This colorful and fun eater in east Nashville is unique with its cheeky letterboard out front and specials that will leave you full straight through 'til morning. Address: 1907 Eastland Avenue, Nashville, TN 37206
2. Bakersfield Nashville - Downtown
Located downtown, Nashville's Bakersfield taco spot has all sorts of taco, torta, tostada and taquito options, rounded out by a whole slew of cocktails and margaritas. We'd recommend the pineapple margarita when you're in the mood for something different, or the premium margarita when it comes to a classic cocktail. Address: 201 3rd Ave S, Nashville, TN, 37201
3. Bartaco - 12 South
Bartaco is known for its streamlined interior and upscale street food fare with specialty cocktails and bottles of beer. The coastal feel makes for a great atmosphere for enjoying a margarita (or two!) made fresh to order. Although Bartaco is a chain, their $2.50 tacos and house-made drinks really take the cake. Address: 2526 12th Ave S, Nashville, TN, 37204.
4. Taco Mamacita Nashville - Edgehill Village
Taco Mamacita can be found in both Chattanooga and Nashville, and is known for having the best TexMex around. Their list of margaritas is massive, from the El Camino as classic, budget-friendly option to the Cadillac made with top-shelf tequila. Address: 1200 Villa Place, Nashville, TN, 37212.
5. Nada - Midtown
Nada is known for its great service, and we recommend everything from their caramelized cauliflower tacos to a plate of wood-grilled steak fajitas. Order a liter of margaritas or perhaps one just to nurse on your own as a true indulgence. Address: 202 21st Ave S, Nashville, TN, 37203
6. Local Taco - Various Locations
Local Taco has two locations here in Nashville, Tennessee, and its a favorite for folks who are looking to indulge in a bit of TexMex cuisine with a bit of Nashville flair. Try out a Nashville hot chicken taco or balance out the heat with a Baja shrimp option. No matter what you order, though, it's the margarita that'll make the meal your own.
7. Butchertown Hall - Germantown
Wait, a non-Mexican restaurant on our list?! Yep, it's true. This meat-centric eatery has a beautiful, streamlined atmosphere that has a great beer garden and a full bar. Those margaritas? The best part of a Germantown summer. Address: 1416 4th Ave N, Nashville, TN, 37208.
