Obviously everyone wants to spend Thursday, February 22—National Margarita Day—with their shaker of salt, but where in the world should you go for the ultimate margarita (especially if you don't want to make one yourself)? No need to Google, "Good margaritas near me." We asked our Facebook followers to list their favorite margarita spots, and their answers did not disappoint!

You’ll find a whopping 11 different kinds of margaritas at Jalapenos, which can be server either frozen, on the rocks, or straight. Margarita lovers will enjoy the multitude of drink options, from the Sour Apple Margarita to the Black Gold Margarita featuring raspberry liqueur.

It wouldn’t be right if we went through the best margaritas in the nation without at least mentioning Margaritaville! Named after Jimmy Buffet’s iconic song, the restaurant has 10 different margaritas on their menu with fun names and unique ingredients like moonshine and sweet tea vodka.

Self-described as the “best margaritas in motown,” this hot spot is so popular that is has six locations in the state!

Amanda Meidl wrote on our Facebook page, “Their homemade margarita flights change regularly, are made with quality ingredients, and are absolutely stellar.”

With locations in Plano and Lindale, Texas, this restaurant proves that everything is in fact bigger in Texas, offering a huge menu of beloved Texan dishes (including corn bread shaped like the state itself), live country music, and four different margaritas, from Beer Ritas to Skinny Margaritas and classics in between.

Though their website doesn’t seem to hype up their margarita offerings, patrons of this popular Colorado watering hole have taken to Instagram to share their love of The Morrison Inn’s margaritas—which are served in giant beer steins!

This Latin restaurant is so popular with locals, they have two locations in Scottsdale! Both the Old Town and Kierland locations have 9 margaritas on the menu that are as unique as they are delicious, with flavors like Elder Flower and Cucumber Jalapeno.
