Among the tales that make up Hussong's more than 125-year history are colorful stories about the invention of the margarita, motorcycle batteries, and a fleeing wife. Known as, “the bar that built a town” and frequented by gunslingers, movie stars, and revolutionaries, one of their claims to fame stems from the hotly-debated creation of the margarita by bartender Don Carlos Orozco back in 1941, concocted with equal parts tequila, Damiana, and lime, served to the daughter of the German ambassador to Mexico, which is still serviced hand-shaken with fresh ingredients. While they're yarns of varying believability, one thing's for certain: Hussong's, established in 1892, has evolved from a cantina into a restaurant serving up a mean menu of Mexican cuisine in varying locations. Hungry travelers will find delectable mounds of chicken, steak, and carnitas stuffed inside tortillas, alongside dishes such as chiles rellenos and fajitas. Vegan and gluten-free options are also available.
