If you’ve been looking for an excuse to waste away in Margaritaville, I’ll give you two; Cinco de Mayo and Cinco de Mayo falls on a weekend!

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 fake Mexican “holiday” to have a margarita or cinco. Just don’t get too carried away with the tequila-infused drink or you might have to start a new life elsewhere depending on what shows up on social media.

Have fun celebrating Mexican Independence Day, Mexican-American culture in general  the anniversary of Mexico's victory over France in The Battle of Puebla, and remember to drink and ogle others responsibly.
