Mariano's Hacienda Ranch Dallas
Dallas-Fort Worth’s Best Mexican Restaurants for Cinco de Mayo and Beyond
People the world over have the eponymous Mariano Martinez to thank for the smoothest, frostiest frozen margaritas ever made, because he’s the genius who invented the frozen margarita machine 50 years ago this May. You can still sometimes catch him at the restaurant—in addition to one of the first ever machines (the original lives at the Smithsonian)—but you can always order up one of the icy concoctions that put him and his Dallas outpost on the margarita map. Luckily, the food here is just as delicious as the cocktails.
