The frozen house margarita at On the Border are just $1 on Saturday.

This is my kind of week.

Tuesday, apparently, was National Drink Wine Day. (I tend not to celebrate that one, though, because EVERY DAY is National Drink Wine Day at my house.)

And Saturday is National Margarita Day. Now that one I can celebrate.

Mexican chain On the Border, which has Wichita locations at 1930 N. Rock Road and 2347 N. Maize Road, will observe the day by offering $1 house margaritas all day. Customers can order the 12 oz. house margaritas either frozen or on the rocks, and the restaurants also will offer their CoronaRitas, which are dramatically served with a beer turned upside down inside of them, for $5.

When I do go to On the Border, I’m usually lured by the restaurant’s giant frozen swirl margaritas served in glass that reminds me of a fish bowl, and I’ve also been known to visit Jose Pepper’s and Ziggy’s Pizza¬†on its discount margarita nights. Don’t even get me started on those Carlos O’ Kelly’s margaritas in a plastic yellow cup that always tempts me at Intrust Bank Arena concerts.

Who has Wichita’s best margarita, in your opinion?
