Not looking forward to Valentine's Day? Well, maybe you should be! It's the start of something special.
It seems like February can be a tough month in Florida, the weather is far from predictable and it’s in between New Year's and Spring Break so not much really going on. As you may be aware it has been cold and overcast recently with a flash of warm weather every so often. So, we were looking forward to finding something solid to look forward to and even celebrate. As it turns out there is a plethora of “national holidays” and not the type you officially get off from work for. This one you may want to take off after please allow us to re-introduce National Margarita Day! Mark your calendars; it’s a Tuesday, more specifically 2/22/22 and – as if that date isn’t already TWO good to be true, we have found a great place to sample the flavors and take advantage of some drink specials in the process.
One of our favorite places to raise up a glass at a decent price and enjoy great food is Chuy’s Tex Mex conveniently located at 7913 W Irlo Bronson Memorial Hwy, Kissimmee, FL 34747.
Chuy’s is based out of Austin, Texas and has been delivering scratch food since 1982. There are now four Orlando area restaurants and if you are on the road, one can be found in 17 different states. They will all look different but stay true to the King - Elvis. Don’t forget to ask for an Elvis Chicken – you will love it!
Chuy’s will always have a couple frozen margaritas ready and often feature a seasonal flavor. So without further ado, let’s talk about the specials. There is a small $2 upcharge to make any regular House Rocks or Frozen ‘Rita into a Grande and you get to pocket the commemorative cup.
For $1 they will top off your favorite margarita with an extra pour of tequila.
Can’t wait until 2/22/22 to start the party? Great news is that starting February 14th, you will find Tito's Frozen Lemonade on the menu. The star of the show is an Austin original as well Tito’s Handmade Vodka, mixed with triple sec and lemon juice. If you already have a favorite frozen margarita flavor, no worries they will do the swirl! You may want to ask for the Strawberry/Tito’s swirl for a nice pre-dinner treat. Talk about love on Valentine’s day!
Also new on the Happy Hour specials is the return of $5 Queso appetizers weekdays only from 3-6pm. For Chuy’s veterans you may remember the “trunk” being a staple happy hour offering but since Covid has started, it’s been retired. Curious about the trunk? Just ask the bartenders I am sure they love talking about it. No word on a planned return at this time. So to complete your Queso don’t forget the seasoned ground beef, guacamole and pico de gallo for just $1 more. Chuy’s does also feature Monday – Friday drink specials as well, sounds like it’s time to order another drink!
Not to worry if you are unable to make the party this year, National Margarita day will return on 02/22/23!
