Who doesn’t love a tangy, cold margarita? Whether you’re celebrating a special event or simply reveling the end of the work week, there’s little else that feels as celebratory and refreshing. Do you like yours rimmed with salt? Frozen versus shaken? No matter how you like your margaritas, the following places in the Bay State will serve you the best around.

1. The Painted Burro, Somerville, MA

An “upscale casual Mexican Kitchen and Tequila Bar,” the Painted Burro makes a might margarita. With more than 100 tequila options from which to choose, you simply can’t go wrong when stopping in for a drink.

2. El Centro Mexican Restaurant, Multiple locations

The bar at El Centro Mexican Restaurant has an impressive selection of beer, but they make an even more impressive margarita. Stop in after work for one or two, and be sure to sample the nachos while you’re sipping. Find locations in the South End, Brookline, Belmont, and Dedham. 

3. Oleโ€™, Cambridge, MA

Featuring California-Mexican cuisine, Ole’ mixes up magnificent margaritas. Some are even made with tequila’s cousin, mescal.

Maybe you’ll find your new favorite drink!

4. MIJA Cantina & Tequila Bar, Boston, MA

Prepare for a potent—and potentially primo—margarita!
