Pubelo Solis (5127 Hampton Ave.; 314-351-9000)

The "Cadillac" margaritas at this friendly family-run eatery are, simply, divine: good, tart lime juice; Sauza Gold; Grand Marnier and a little splash of sour mix. They would knock you on your ass if not for the bounty of chips and salsa brought to your table: With chipotle and verde salsas in addition to a just-hot-enough red salsa, you'll scarf down enough to get you through to a second pitcher. Did we say pitcher? Pueblo Solis is that kind of place.

Vida Mexican Kitchen y Cantina (1137 St Louis Galleria; 314-863-1150)

Vida Mexican Kitchen y Cantina opened only last year at St. Louis Galleria, but it's already earned a spot among the area's best margaritas. Even a basic house margarita brings an enjoyable blend of El Jimador blanco tequila, triple sec, freshly squeezed lime juice and cane sugar. And if you don't mind spending the big bucks ($15), you can get the "Millionaire" margarita: Corzo blanco tequila, freshly squeeze lime juice and Grand Marnier.

Lily’s off South Kingshighway concocts some of the best margarita’s in St. Louis. The first time I tried one of their margarita’s, I thought they had accidentally blended up a gleeful unicorn, because my mouth hole exploded with tasty magic and happy rainbows once that sweet nectar touched my lips. To my surprise, turns out it was their margarita, and they can sell you them shits every damn day.

I swear I was about to post a comment about Lily's when I saw yours. Totes agree.
Their margaritas are the best, hands down. And it is always the owner who makes them, so they're guaranteed to taste just as delicious every time!
