Hussong's Cantina at Mandalay Bay almost feels like you're on Spring Break: live music, plenty of great beer and some terrific food. It's a casual, easy-going atmosphere with dishes like tacos, fajitas, carne asada, flautas, burritos and chimichangas. One of the most interesting things about Hussong's is its history. This location was the first franchise of the original Hussong's Cantina, which was established in 1892 in Baja, Mexico--the same place that bills itself as the place where the Margarita was invented. Naturally, this means that Hussong's Las Vegas has a selection of specialty Margaritas, like the Cadillac Margarita (Hornitos Reposado and Grand Marnier), or the Blackberry Splash Margarita, with freshly muddled blackberries and ginger liqueur.
- Lunch on the Strip: "Hussong's is serious about being the birthplace of the Margarita, and their Original Margarita stays true to that first version's recipe: Sauza Blue Reposado tequila, agave nectar and freshly squeezed lime juice."
- Mexican: "Happy Hour at Hussong's is Monday through Thursday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., with half off grilled corn, nachos, quesadillas, tacos, draft beers, well cocktails and original Sauza Margaritas."
