Some of the best, out of the four places we visited this one was the most flavorful, just the right amount of heat and yummy okra, olives and celery!

Went with friends and got some different drinks. The jalapeño margarita was awesome! The outdoor patio was pleasant and after a while, the bartender came outside to add a little mist action to the fans which was nice because it was hot. I would definitely return.

Loved Rio Rita's - fab cocktails many unique recipes. Good prices and nice atmosphere with a friendly crowd. Think they do snacks but we just went for the cocktails. Loved the outdoor seating area.

Love this little dive on the east side of Austin. The inside is decorated with unique vintage furniture, the drinks are amazing, and the back area is great for lounging around all afternoon, working from "home," having a cup of coffee, or drinks at night under the strings of lights with friends.

Of all the great specialty drinks served here, I still like their margarita the best. They tell me it's just agave nectar and lime juice, but it's delicious. If you're wondering around on east 6th, you should definitely stop here for a cocktail... or two.

Thank DannyMac13
