El Gordito Mexican Restaurant – Belleville, IL

It’s Cinco de Mayo so of course I want to find a good Margarita!

El Gordito Mexican Restaurant presents itself at your run of the mill Mexican joint. So I wasn’t expecting much, yet their Margaritas are especially tasty. Now given the flavor they are almost certainly made with a mix. However for a mix the Margaritas are well balanced and very flavorful. I would say that the drinks I had on this day were lacking a little on the tequila flavor. This could be because the sweet and tart flavors were masking the tequila somewhat, or maybe because it was Cinco the restaurant was skimping a bit on the tequila. Regardless, the drink was otherwise very enjoyable. I give the Margaritas at El Gordita’s on this particular Cinco de Mayo an 8.
