Ladies and Gentlemen: Bow down to beverage royalty… reining at the throne as the most popular cocktail, the Margarita is a total classic. Its refreshing blend of salt, lime, orange liqueur, and thirst-quenching tequila make it most deserving of devotion.
While the cocktail-martini hybrid basics may scream simplicity, we like to think of the marg as the perfect base to experiment, blending new tropical tastes and flavors… one of its best qualities!
In its purest form, the classic Margarita (whether on the rocks or frozen) is the quintessential cocktail to accompany any Mexican plate. Cause sometimes, less really is more. But if you’re feeling bold, we offer a multitude of margs that pack a punch.
Try out our Chamoy Margarita. Salty, sweet, sour, and spicy, it’s an absolute flavor knockout! This margarita is refreshingly citrusy, subtly chile-spiced, seriously delicious, and perfect for these hot summer days! (East Ridge, TN location only)
While everyone has their own idea of what the perfect margarita tastes like, all our amigos agree, our margs can’t be beat! Frozen or on the rocks, flavors include: Margarona, Mango, Peach, Passionfruit, Strawberry, and Raspberry. Cool off with a 12oz. Texas Margarita, 27oz. Jumbo, or grab a 60oz. Pitcher for sharing!
Our summer recommendation? A sweet and spicy, Tajin-rimmed (Chili Lime) Frozen Mango Margarita! Tajin is a unique blend made of world-class chilies, lime, and sea salt.
Sip down 2 for the price of 1 during Happy Hour (daily). East Ridge, Brainerd, Hixson from 3-9pm and 4-8pm at Johnson City and Elizabethton locations. See you soon!
What Makes a Salad a "Salad"?
If you're on a diet, Mexican food may seem definitely off menu – however, you don't have to give it up! It's all in the fresh ingredients, as salads come in all shapes, sizes, and flavors! Let's start with the basics: greens, fruits, veggies, and toppings. With the majority of salads, lettuce is used as the base ingredient, however, these leafy layers do not wholly define what it means to be "salad." Here are 8 Summer "Salads" that defy the salad standard.
TACO SALAD A fried flour tortilla bowl filled with ground beef, refried beans, lettuce, shredded cheese, sour cream, guacamole and tomatoes.
ENSALADA FRESCA Fresh romaine hearts topped with your choice of meat, fresh onions, tomatoes, bell peppers, two slices of avocado and shredded white cheese. Served with your choice of Grilled Chicken, Grilled Steak, Grilled Shrimp, and dressing.
AMIGO SALAD A fried flour tortilla bowl filled with layers of rice, lettuce and your choice of meat. Covered with grilled onions, bell peppers and mushrooms, topped with our famous white cheese sauce. Served with your choice of Grilled Chicken, Grilled Carnitas, Grilled Steak, Grilled Shrimp, Texas-Style Chicken, or Steak and Shrimp.
TACOS FLACOS A healthier take on our traditional-style tacos. Three lettuce wraps are filled with strips of grilled steak or chicken, topped with fresh cilantro and onions. Served with your choice of Grilled Chicken or Grilled Steak and a side of salsa verde.
DE LA CASA SALAD Fresh romaine hearts topped with Amigo’s homemade avocado sauce, sour cream and tomatoes.
LA TAPATIA Your choice of meat sautéed with zucchini, onions, mushrooms and soy sauce topped with our delicious white cheese sauce. Served with rice and three flour tortillas. Garnished with lettuce, sour cream and mango pineapple sauce to give it the final touch. Served with your choice of Grilled Chicken, Grilled Carnitas, Grilled Steak, Grilled Shrimp.
CRISPY CHICKEN SALAD Fresh romaine hearts topped with premium crispy chicken, fresh onions, tomatoes, bell peppers, two slices of avocado and shredded white cheese. Served with your choice of dressing.
TOSSED SALAD Fresh romaine hearts topped with fresh bell peppers, onions, tomatoes and shredded cheese.
And technically, you can make anything a salad, right? As long your Amigo entrée is accompanied with our Guacamole Salad, or Sour Cream Salad, including fresh lettuce, and tomatoes. (Nachos, Burritos, and and Enchiladas, we're talking to you!)
So, what's your definition of a salad? What you choose to make a salad out of it 100% up to you!
