As one of the attractions of Detroit’s Mexicantown, Armando’s Mexican Cuisine not only sports a menu of delectable tacos, burritos, shrimp fajitas, quesadillas, flaming cheese appetizers and much more, it also has margaritas that some have said are to die for. Their Original Margarita comes frozen or on the rocks, but they also have strawberry, melon or peach fruit margaritas. If you want to kick things up a notch (and who wouldn’t?) try the Sante Fe Margarita, made with gold tequila, triple sec, sweet and sour, cranberry juice and served on the rocks.
Established in 1946 by John & Elizabeth Stephenson, then known as “The Nibble Nook,” the Stephensons prepared home cooked meals at affordable prices. After making a tradition out of closing the restaurant for the cold Michigan winters and retreating to Mexico for the season, they became close friends with a local family that operated a retreat there called Motel Gloria. The Stephensons were inspired by the family’s cooking and decided to bring that flavor to southeast Michigan.
With locations in Livonia and Bloomfield, El Nibble Nook serves delicious margaritas as individual drinks or as pitchers for the whole table. So, grab a friend or your whole family and enjoy some margaritas this Cinco de Mayo.
