The tamales at Danals Mexican Restaurant are so popular that some regulars place bulk orders days in advance. But the tender, husk-wrapped snacks aren't the only reason to visit this 25-year-old Irving eatery. The restaurant's cooks are experts when it comes to crafting Michoacan-style carnitas, seafood ceviches, and other Mexican staples. Specialty margaritas and micheladas pair beautifully with each fresh, piquant dish, and desserts such as flan give folks a way to get rid of the bitter taste that comes from saying "Beetlejuice" three times. To nail down the authenticity, brightly colored walls and murals line the restaurant's interior, creating a colorful, happy ambience.

Veins of sangria run through sheets of frozen margarita in the Mod-Mex Swirl, a cocktail that epitomizes La Margarita’s core philosophy. Owners Gabriel and Adrian DeLeon, sons of founder Juan, carry on their father’s tradition of fresh Tex-Mex, updating family recipes with a modern twist—“Mod-Mex.” This marriage of classic and contemporary emerges not only in their signature margaritas, but also in their fare. Similar to the swearing-in of a matador, each meal begins with the traditional house-made chips and salsa served warm, but forays into the unusual as soon as customers crack a menu. Amid tacos and burritos, innovative dishes such as salmon swaddled in banana leaves and chipotle-slathered ribs jump out at eaters—even if a flight of top-shelf tequilas has dulled their senses a bit.
