There’s no shortage of margaritas in Austin, which is why a great one stands out so much. Maybe the team at Lulu’s nailed a scientifically precise ratio of tequila, Jalisco orange liqueur, lime, and agave, or maybe it’s the vibrant and lively Mexico City-inspired space that makes the margaritas taste that much better. Whatever you end up ordering, you’ll find yourself in a bright and airy room packed full of plants, wooden tables, and benches that make the whole space feel like it was plucked right out of Roma Norte and placed onto Menchaca Road. If you’re hungry while you’re there, grab some tacos and gorditas (all served on excellent blue corn tortillas) from the trailer La Taquicardia on the patio.
