In Pennsylvania, Eat This, Not That recommends Jose Pistola's in Philadelphia. Enjoy Happy Hour, Monday-Friday 4pm to 6pm, with $10 off select margarita pitchers.

Check out Empellón Al Pastor in New York City. According to the article, "The blend of Azteca Azul blanco tequila with cilantro and pineapple is tangy and the serrano chilies add heat and a touch of smokiness."

Take the drive to Delaware and try Del Pez Mexican Gastropub in Wilmington. It was voted 2023 Best of Delaware. Maybe you're in the mood for a signature or skinny margarita.

Now it's time for New Jersey's best place to go for a margarita.

Eat This, Not That named Orale the BEST place to go in New Jersey with locations in Jersey City, Hoboken and Morristown.

"With a large cocktail lounge boasting a Mexican experience serving signature cocktails full of flavor and with a fiery bite, we will have you coming back for more time and time again." That according to their website.

When it comes to a good margarita, I say the more salt the better. I know not everyone agrees, but I think the salt adds to the deliciousness.
