📍Dallas, tx - website Here

To sum it up - $5 lunch time mini margaritas won our hearts. I mean what’s more perfect than the perfectly portioned marg for you to still be able to function at work after? If instagrammable spaces are your thing, they have stunning and inviting patio, with a covered section so you can still enjoy a outdoor ambiance while it rains and plenty of fans and heaters when needed too. The food was delish and we recommend starting with the trio to try their queso, guac and cilantro ranch dip. *extra emphasis on the cilantro ranch dip*.
