Best Tequila Selections in St. Louis
(35 North Gore Avenue, Webster Groves; 314-968-3256)
With an extensive tequila list including plata (silver), reposado ("rested" but not aged), anejo (aged) and even extra anejo (extra super aged), it's hard to know where to start. You could go big and order a 1942 Don Julio Blanco for $26, or you could order one of its simple yet perfect margaritas made with Sauza Hornitos Plata tequila, Cointreau, fresh lime juice and agave nectar. Just like our abuela used to make!
Just some of La Chata's tequila selection.
(2027 Highway K, O'Fallon; 636-978-5329)
La Chata's bar isn't just called the bar. It's referred to as the "Tequila Bar." Like Diablitos, La Chata claims to have the largest tequila selection in St. Louis (also more than 100 varieties) of premium and super premium bottles. But honestly, anyone who has more than 100 types of tequila is a god among restaurants in our opinion. La Chata is a little off the beaten path in O'Fallon, but we think we might have to go there soon anyway. You know, just to count all of the tequilas. And maybe taste them while we're counting.
