We simply aren’t in Texas anymore

A couple of weeks ago Justin and I decided we needed to celebrate the end of a successful move with margaritas! Happy hour is a fairly common occurrence for us and in Austin margaritas are a pretty solid choice.

Justin has been here since August and has been not found a margarita worthy of the calories. So, began the hunt over the next two years (and the blog!)

Our first stop:

Nacho Daddy’s

The name, funny as it was, seemed promising. We found the restaurant from a quick google search. It was very well rated on Urban Spoon, so we thought we’d give it a try!

We opted to have dinner as well. The food was pretty good for Winston Salem mexican food and the salsa was DELICIOUS

The margarita:

To me it tasted somewhat watered down, which was  a little strange! I think what freaked me out most about this margarita was the blue salt. It didn’t taste like salt; it was very strange. Overall, I would say the margarita was decent

However, it is the best margarita I have had at a local Winston Salem Mexican restaurant. I’ve had a couple of really TERRIBLE ones (that I will refrain from writing about). Nacho Daddy’s was relatively inexpensive and has 99 cent Shiner Beer, which is Justin’s favorite!

  2. Oh dear – apparently, we’re not the only pilgrims laboring on the fruitless quest for a decent margarita in Winston-Salem. It’s tragic. I mean, I think I make them better at home with a bottle of some random green, sugary substance and a mediocre tequila. So, we’ll give this Nacho Daddy’s place a try. And no worries on the blue ‘salt,’ we both take ’em with sugar. If you come across a better marg, keep us posted. If not, we need to host a margarita party and just go all out. Cook’s Illustrated has a cool recipe that needs trying out….
