Okay, no more idle chit-chat. We know what you're here for. The absolute BEST MARGARITAS IN NEW BRAUNFELS are at Cantina del Rio in Historic Gruene, and that's not just our opinion. For the last 9 years in a row, this hotspot has been voted the best margarita in New Braunfels by readers of the Herald-Zeitung.
