Texas may be known for BBQ, but we also take pride in our Margaritas and Mexican food. Check out these five restaurants that are serving the best Margaritas around our Springs at Corpus Christi luxury apartment community.
1. Molé 6042 S Padre Island Dr 361.334.6081 3.7 miles away
Molé is named after the iconic Mexican sauce that comes in a number of flavors. The restaurant’s menu features four different styles, including traditional chocolate-and-nut infused and negro, made with pasilla peppers. Can't decide? Order the sampler platter and try all four. Full-size, full-strength Margaritas are only 99 cents, all day and every day. Regulars recommend the unique tamarindo Margarita, shaken and strained without ice and served in a glass with a chile rim.
Water Street's creative signature Margaritas include Blue Marlin, Pineapple-Mango and Boss, but the most popular is the sweet and tangy Texas Peach. The drink starts with Patron Anejo Tequila and Water Street's own Margarita mix, then adds agave nectar, cranberry juice, muddled fresh jalapeños and peaches. Sip leisurely as you dine on fresh seafood from the raw bar or bayou favorites like jambalaya and crawfish-stuffed chicken. Get $2 off cocktails all day long on Top Shelf Tuesdays.
3. On the Border 5117 S Padre Island Dr 361.992.9662 3.8 miles away
You could visit this lively cantina every day for two weeks and still not make your way through the entire list of their amazing Margaritas. Customer favorites include Coronita, finished with an upside-down bottle of Corona, and Blue Lagoon, made with coconut rum and blue curaçao. Have your own "Meltdown" by topping any Margarita with your choice of liqueur. Get special pricing on house and watermelon Margaritas during OTB's Happy Hours, held twice each weekday and once on Saturday and Sunday.
Kiko's has been delighting Corpus Christi residents with their flavorful food and Margaritas for more than 30 years. Many of the recipes on the menu have been passed down from families who have lived in Corpus Christi for generations. Start your day at Kiko's with a traditional breakfast including huevos, chorizo and chicharrones. Enjoy reduced prices on Margaritas and draft beer during Happy Hour from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
Imagine sitting in a seaside cantina filled with warm colors and wood accents as your Margaritas are mixed tableside. That's the experience you'll have when you visit Señor Jaime's. The extensive menu features classic Mexican dishes, including local favorite puffy tacos. And did someone mention dessert Margaritas? The frozen Key Lime Margarita, created personally by Señor Jaime, is made with Cuervo Tequila and Grand Marnier, then topped off with luscious whipped cream.
