05 of 05If you like your margaritas cheap and strong, mosey on over to Rodeo Bar & Grill. This inexpensive Tex-Mex proves great margaritas dont have to be pricey. Choose from lime, melon, or prickly pear flavors. Youll find the food pretty tasty, too, though I dont recommend mixing margaritas with Rodeos famous Fat Elvis (deep fried banana chimichanga with vanilla ice cream).
