Located in the former San Jose building off Sams Point Road on Lady’s Island, the new Mucho Margaritas Mexican restaurant lives up to its name.
The newest feature on the drink menu is the formidable Tower of Margaritas. The long, tall tower is filled with ice and their special margarita recipe and brought to the table where the handy spout
makes it easy for you to refill your glass at your leisure. This is
great for a big party or, if you’re like the Lunch Bunch, just a typical Friday afternoon. (Disclaimer: While the margaritas were delicious, we did not attempt to finish the entire tower; we wanted to make sure we got a picture of it for the paper because it certainly has a “Wow” factor.)
The menu offers many of the same items, but we were excited to try a new appetizer called Queso Fundito made with cheese, mushrooms and chorizo. Served hot, it is an ultimate dipping companion to tortilla chips.
After a long week, we were all in the mood for some meat. Kim ordered the piping hot and delicious steak fajitas, while Nikki had a steak quesadilla. I tried a new item called Pollo Super Bonus, served warm with chicken, cheese, peppers and a nice kick to it. David also tried a new item, the Fajita Chihuahua, with shrimp and chicken and cheese, and it was a must-have.
Buck stayed with his favorite lunch combination of a burrito with rice and refried beans, and Elizabeth enjoyed her soft tacos.
Mucho Margaritas is located at 5 Sams Point Road, Lady’s Island, across from Publix.
