So delicious!” Lauren Zografakis, Trinity: “Besa Grill in Clearwater!” Melissa Rodriguez-Luna, Tampa: “The Green Lemon …I have to say they had a great margarita. It was mixed perfectly.” Katherine Humphreys, Tierra Verde: “Agave, St. Pete Beach!” Sue Gardner, Spring Hill: “Carmelita's.” Sally Chambless: “Z Grille in St. Pete has the best!” Aimee Charbeneau, Lutz: “I don't know about BEST, but Elsa's in Lutz is the strongest.” Rosa Mercado, Tampa: “The margarita I had at Red Mesa Cantina in St Pete was awesome.” Kristen Goldie Hasara, Tampa: Mekenita in Lutz has a fabulous homemade one. (So many other places just use a standard mix so they all taste the same). Ted Byrd, Tampa: “Grillsmith surprisingly makes good ones.” Who makes your favorite local margarita?
