That headline is ridiculous, because of course Dallas doesn't make better margaritas than Houston. I mean really, the suggestion is laughable.
Yet here we are, with just one week left of a Margarita Madness bracket presented by our parent company, Voice Media Group. We hadn't yet reported on it because it's a marketing department venture somewhat separate from editorial, but today we noticed that it's come down to Houston versus Dallas for the better margarita.
The Original Ninfa's on Navigation in Houston versus Mariano's Hacienda Ranch in Dallas.

So here's what you need to do: Go to the website for Margarita Madness USA. Click on Texas. Register to vote by creating an account or connecting with Facebook. Click on "Play Game," and then scroll down until you see one poll still open: Houston versus Dallas.
And then, for the love of agave, vote for Houston. We are despicably behind Dallas right now, and this JUST. CAN'T. HAPPEN.
Then go to Ninfa's and treat yourself to a margarita, because after doing your duty as a Houstonian, you deserve it!
