1900 Ritner St.
On National Margarita Day only, enjoy the Tequila Por Mi Amante margarita for $5 at this South Philly staple. The tequila in this drink is infused with strawberries in-house 30 days before being served, which really takes this margarita over the top.

If frozen margaritas are your thing, Cantina Dos Segundos in Northern Liberties gives you an entire pitcher (classic lime) for $32.

Nosh on some Mexican hot dogs and empanadas.
