If you’ve been looking for an excuse to waste away in Margaritaville, I’ll give you two; it’s National Margarita Day and it’s Friday!

Whether you like yours on the rocks or in its slushie form, I find margaritas are best when paired with Mexican food. So I did some research, and below you'll find a list of restaurants the local margarita-loving Yelp community has given the most enthusiastic thumbs up to. Mostly, it seems, because they serve them in giant glasses.

But honestly you don’t need a tequila-based fake “day” to have a margarita or two. Just don’t get too carried away.

Margaritas are the number one cause of blowing out a flip-flop and stepping on a pop top. Or at least that’s what Jimmy Buffet has been telling us for decades.
