The Perfect Margarita is Waiting for You in Marana!

Chill out with some of the best places to grab margaritas in Marana!

It’s a cultural staple of the Southwest – Tequila, triple sec, and lime combining to make the perfect, refreshing margarita. These four Marana restaurants and bars put their own, creative, locally-inspired twist on the classic drink – some of them have even been awarded for their creations! 

Nana's Kitchen - The World's Best Margaritas!

Why not start off with Marana’s most famous margarita? It’s not just us saying that – their Mango Tamarindo and Sonoran Passion Margaritas won Best Overall in both the People’s Choice and Judge’s Choice categories at the 2022 and 2023 World Margarita Championships, respectively! Nana’s Kitchen is known for their excellent Sonoran-style Mexican dishes prepared from family recipes, excellent, friendly service that makes you feel like family, and wide selection of limited-run and hard-to-find spirits of all types at their bar.


Alejandro Serious Mexican, Mariscos, and Fusion Food - Every Margarita You Could Imagine! 

A newcomer that has become a well-loved part of Marana’s food scene, Alejandro Serious Mexican, Mariscos, and Fusion Food is famous for its variety of dishes inspired by and named after owner Alejandro Diaz’s family members (including Carne Machaca – it’s the only restaurant in Marana to serve it), and of course, its extensive selection of margaritas! At any one time, there’s over a dozen you can chose from, plus various seasonal specialties throughout the year! Each of their margaritas is made with real fruit puree!
