El Big Bad
El Big Bad describes itself as a "feisty" cantina and we agree. This downtown tex-mex spot not only has the eats, but also specializes in infused tequilas so you can get your drink on. Come by for happy hour every from 3pm to 7pm when cocktails and margaritas are $3 off.
Margaritas as good these deserve to be enjoyed alongside ample amounts of sunlight, so it’s a good thing this Big Bad boy offers a 2,000-square-foot balcony complete with an ultra-‘grammable “I Love You and Tacos So Much” sign for your imbibing pleasure. Take the totally rad elevator (or the winding stairs) one level up and grab an umbrella-covered table to slurp your cranberry and churro-infused marg and take down some Gulf shrimp tacos and old-school nachos while you’re at it. Festive events from social meetups and salsa dancing to absolutely epic holiday weekends add even more incentive to keep an eye on this joint’s Facebook page.
How to book: Stop by for first come, first served seating.
