Asada Order a pitcher of margaritas at this easygoing, Southwestern newcomer and you'll depart extra happy (if a bit cross-eyed). We're a sucker for the upsell on tequilas, and servers are quick to ask if you'd like to upgrade your drink with a brand called Penjamo Reposado, which indeed imbues a vivid, smooth edge to your drink.

SalaMargarita connoisseurs, welcome to your Holy Grail. Sala serves the most precisely and seductively engineered margaritas in town. We're perpetually jonesing for the Longhorn, Sala's not-too-sweet take on a Texas margarita. They ain't cheap, and you can spend a small fortune here, but they're worth every sip.

Zocalo The vivacious, breezy rooms of these Midtown and Decatur Mexican joints are ideal for whiling away a lazy summer afternoon or evening. The margaritas are strong and gimmick-free. Servers are prone to upselling better brands of tequila (they've got rainbows of bottles on display). Take them up on it once in a while - the subtle differences between Cuervo Gold and, say, El Jimador Anejo will surprise.

Always great to see new concepts in Atlanta, especially the pay-an-arm-and-a-leg-for-finger-food-and-overrated-cocktails variety.
