National Margarita Day means all the deals on your favorite margs.


If tacos are your favorite food, then you're bound to enjoy margaritas, too. If that's the case, we've got great news for you. Today, Feb. 22, is National Margarita Day, Taco Tuesday and a twos-day (2/22/22). That means you can get deals on margaritas, discounted tacos and other freebies at several restaurants.

While free margaritas are on this list, they only apply to some people (see below). But don't worry, there are other freebies you can look forward to. Here's where to get the best deals for National Margarita Day. 


Today only, Chili's has house margaritas for as low as $3 each. The Tex-Mex chain also has its $5 Marg of the Month special: For February, it's the Grand Romance 'Rita, made with Grand Marnier, Lunazul Blanco tequila, Monin pomegranate syrup and fresh sour mix. You can also enjoy $6 Presidente margaritas and $7 Premium margaritas.
