Joe is dead on, as usual.
Sounds like he's had lots of experience :wink:
Personally, I have found that the size of the Margarita will directly effect my judgement as to the quality. I like the ones at Cocos, but let me add that Cocos has some very LARGE margaritas.
I just want to say any margarita will do as long as I'm at the beach!!!!
oh, i realize that many locals prefer the fancy smancy mexican food at Luna's. My pals and I prefer the good basic mexican food at Coco's and the really nice amigos who work there. Did I mention big ass margaritas?
When and where......that sounds like the old days, I remember the block parties that were held at the corner in front of the store (now the Red bar).
SOOOO much Fun.
Hope to be there.
Certainly didn't mean to offend you Coco's loyalists. I simply wanted to offer a different perspective. And as an ex-Texan and Mexico vacationer, I am confident in my ability to discern good Mexican fare. I will say it drives me crazy when businesses close during the off season (or for the afternoon when their owners feel like surfing). However, I've come to accept that if I want to live here and support local business owners, it's just something I have to deal with. For what it's worth...
An ancient but worthwhile thread to bring back. I think Coco's is now Los Ranchero's after it was Jambone? I wonder who has best margaritas now? I vote for Diego's in PCB
I miss the giant double margaritas at Cocos. However I had a large frozen margarita straight out of the machine at Red Fish Taco yesterday for lunch. And it was delicious. Refreshing. And trust me.. You only need one.
Los Ranchero's (formerly CoCo's) has very tasty and adequately strong margaritas. Most deadly margarita, though, at least for me is Red Bar. Maybe it's because I've usually been sipping/gulping something else before I get there, but twice I've had two Red Bar margaritas to finish off a beach afternoon and twice I've had to arrange a ride home and some hot tea.
The Red Bar margarita is indeed a potent cocktail!
I have to agree with this and have been in the same boat on several occasions.
ME: But honey I only had 2 drinks.
HUBBY: Theres NO WAY you got this drunk off 2 drinks.
ME: Ask naenae..She only fixed me 2 drinks AND I got out of there for$20 with tip.
Red Bar margaritas are why my buddy Donna and I call each other "sisra." I posted a picture of us on Facebook and instead of Sista, we sobered up the next day and saw "Sisra." So forever Sisra it is.
It's not a Margarita, but the Pina Colada at Chanticleer is unbelievable. They make it with ice cream. So, it's effectively a heavily spiked milkshake.
