Cinco de Mayo: Michiana’s favorite margaritas, plus Cinco specials

It’s almost time for Cinco de Mayo, and in honor of the May 5 celebration, we asked our readers to let us know which Michiana margaritas they think are the best.

Keep reading for look at Cinco de Mayo specials being offered around the area.

1. Hacienda

The restaurant that got by far the most votes from readers around Michiana was Hacienda. The chain offers a wide variety of margaritas, as well as tequila, that customers can choose from. Several readers who voted for Hacienda mentioned they enjoyed being able to pick and choose their flavor and tequila from a large number of options.  

“I always order the Arriba Margarita from here,” Shelbie Tyler, who voted for Hacienda, said. “They let you choose what you want in it and serve it to you in a shaker with a rocks glass. It’s pretty much a ”build-a-rita“ with a delicious end result. I recommend it to people who don’t like the slushy ones and want a real taste of Mexico, like me.”

2. La Esperanza

This Mexican restaurant, located at 601 E. Jackson Blvd. in Elkhart, got the second-most votes from our readers. La Esperanza’s operators have more than 20 years of experience in the restaurant business and a menu full of family recipes, the city of Elkhart’s website says. The location offers both lime and strawberry margaritas, frozen or on the rocks.

3. La Troje

La Troje, a Mexican restaurant located at 115 S Buffalo St. in Warsaw, was our readers’ third choice for Michiana’s best margarita. In addition to serving up a wide variety of margarita flavors – including traditional lime, mango, peach, strawberry, raspberry and piña colada – the restaurant offers 13 tequila selections.
