Chef Johnny Hernandez is hosting his second annual Margarita Throwdown at his prized La Gloria at the Dominion later this month.

After realizing he needed to update his menu, Hernandez challenged five of his restaurants to create the tastiest margarita, said La Gloria representative Francisco Venegas.

The Fruteria, Burgerteca, Villa Rica and La Gloria’s Dominion and Pearl locations will see who has the best margs on Sunday, August 19. The throwdown will occur roughly five months after Hernandez’s last competition tested his restaurant’s micheladas.

Guests will sample margaritas from all five restaurants as well as enjoy two tacos for only $20. At the end of the night, attendees will receive two tickets to vote for their favorites.

Venegas shared that tickets are already halfway sold out, so make sure you don’t miss out. Tickets can be purchased here. So many restaurants, so little time. Find out the latest San Antonio dining news with our Flavor Friday Newsletter.
