Ricardo's Mexican Restaurant
To celebrate 30 years in business, the owners of Ricardo's Mexican Restaurant made a single margarita. Of course, it was a 7,627-gallon margarita that happened to earn the eatery a Guinness World Record. Five years later, Ricardo's is still known for its (much smaller) margaritas. The 24-hour restaurant and gaming cantina welcomes guests around the clock, whether it's for a drink or for one of the chef's famous burritos or tacos. And if your party is too big to squeeze into the 100-person party room? Ricardo's can cater, delivering food and festivities in the form of margarita machines, musicians, and spirited games of pin the tail on the enchilada.
