  1. I agree with your most loyal and intelligent readers! I have loved LaPaz since a Hood student waaayyy back in the day. It isn’t exactly Mexican, or Tex-Mex, or Spanish…..it’s LaPaz! Best margaritas, plain and simple, in my humble opinion. Also love Cacique’s Cranberry Margarita – mmmmmm….Any way you slice it, we are so spoiled here in Frederick. Fajita Grande is another favorite of mine as well, for affordability, fast, friendly service, and great food. So, no matter where you love to go, support our local non-chain mexican/spanish/tex mex places and get your margaritas on!
