It's doubtful that Monica Flin served margaritas when she first opened El Charro in the early 1920s. But times change, and today, margaritas are all part of the scene at this world-famous restaurant. The Court Street site is a great place to take out-of-town guests. The patio at Toma!, El Charro's bar, is enchanting. The drinks here are served up in tall, cool glasses. You have your choice of more than 30 tequilas to choose from (the list is growing). A sweet-and-sour treat, these margaritas are a wonderful respite from a hot day or a kick-start to a cool night. Besides the flagship restaurant downtown, you can now enjoy El Charro food and drink at four other sites around town.
