Tex Mex in NB: The 10 Best Places to Grab a Margarita | Keller Williams New Braunfels

What's your favorite spot to grab tacos and tequila in New Braunfels? Here are a few of ours!

1. Adobe Cafe (124 S Business I-35)

Tex Mex at its best, Adobe Cafe ranks at the top of the list for a reason! To taste-and-see for yourself, we recommend ordering their novelty “Big Red Margarita” along with an order of beef fajita nachos, stuffed jalapenos, or seafood tacos. Plus, they keep the chips and salsa coming!

2. Cantina del Rio (1299 Gruene Rd)

Cantina del Rio is a must for any serious margarita drinker. Why? This local establishment recently won the coveted title of Best Margarita in New Braunfels! Try it for yourself, and order a plate of shrimp tacos while you’re at it. Plus, Cantina del Rio is right next to Gruene Hall, so you are primed and ready to pregame for the free Shawn Pittman show happening on Thursday night!

3. Adobe Verde (1724 Hunter Rd)

Just when you thought the margarita couldn’t get any better, Adobe Verde dared to dream. In a stroke of pure agave genius, Verde set about fusing two of our favorite words in the exotic-food vocabulary: “sangria” and “margarita”. Stop by this local favorite and enjoy a sangria margarita! And don’t skip on stopping in for lunch, you can get a great meal every weekday between 11:00-3:00 for under $10!

4. Casa Garcias (1691 State Hwy 46W)

Featuring everything from Carne Guisada to chorizo to migas and more, Casa Garcias serves breakfast all day, every day…meaning you can combine your love of breakfast tacos with your love of tequila.

5. Los Cucos (1310 Common St)

Looking for a tried-and-true classic? Head to Los Cucos and order the fried avocados, the queso flameado, and the enchiladas for a meal (along with a margarita or a nice sangria). Be bold this week and try the strawberry pineapple margarita!

6. Herberts (1440 N Walnut Ave)

When it comes to Mexican food in New Braunfels, Herbert’s tops the list…or at least, that’s what they claim on their website! Herberts offers some pretty knockout menu items, from enchiladas to tamales. And when it comes to margaritas, Herberts offers a pretty unique one: the Bob-a-Rita. This margarita comes with a bottle of Big Red placed upside down in the glass. Feel like a kid again when you order this marg!

7. Dos Rios (1281 N Academy Ave)

Offering unbeatable deals throughout the week, Dos Rios is the spot for a thrifty margarita fan. Enjoy half off chicken fajitas every Wednesday night, and lunch specials every day. Plus, Dos Rios offers a massive happy hour from 11:00-6:30 every day. Grab a lunch marg or get off work and head straight to Dos Rios an indulge. Try the prickly pear marg!

8. Cancun (636 S Seguin Ave)

Some of the best Tex Mex places are what some call a “hole in the wall”. Cancun is a place you should keep on your radar for its happy hour and authentic food. Expect a bill for one to be under $10, so go ahead and get a second margarita. You deserve it, after all!canva photo editor (5) copy

9. Las Fontanas (1551 N Walnut Ave)

Another great hole-in-the-wall joint in New Braunfels, Las Fontanas offers their award-winning Haus Margarita for just $5! Add mango or strawberries or spring for their top-shelf marg “The Fontanarita” if you’re feeling indulgent. And, if you’re staying past happy hour, we recommend the steak stuffed avocado.

10. Mamacitas (505 Business I-35)

Perfect for National Margarita Day, Mamacitas boasts a margarita menu that rivals any other in town! Try a standard margarita with different tequilas for distinct flavors, or try something crazy like the Dos XX Rita (which has a Dos Equis beer turned upside down in the glass) or a Mexican Mama-tini (a Mexican martini garnished with olives). Of course, they also have sangria margs and pina coladas for fans of the fruitier drinks.
