Readers' Choice: El Tiempo

An unlikely location on the ground floor of a medical building in the Museum District hasn't stopped the young Bodega's Taco Shop from making a splash in the already crowded Tex-Mex market. The food itself (think upscale Chipotle) is good, but people flock here for the dazzling array of delicious fresh-fruit margaritas. All the margaritas (the ones on the rocks, that is) are made to order with only three ingredients: a freshly squeezed orange, two freshly squeezed limes and your choice of more than 80 different tequilas. And while the margaritas are amazing on their own, adding one of a dozen other available fruit juices for only 20 cents more pushes Bodega's to the top of the list. Although the mango and guava margaritas are easy choices, the surprisingly good tamarind flavor is not to be missed.

Ahhh...I don't think so. The claim to the best margarita in town should be base on taste on all not just the ones on the rocks and what fruit juices can be added.


We love the Margaritas and the Pablano Soup! My girlfriends and I slurp them up every week on Thursday Happy Hour.


The frozen margaritas here are waaaaay too sweet. I attempted to order one on the rocks, but the bartender got it wrong and gave me a frozen one instead and I was too lazy to correct it. So I've yet to try them. However, avoid the frozen ones unless you want something sickeningly sweet.


This is comical! Reminds me of the Cafe Adobe ads that say they have the best margarita.
