No matter where you go to school, there’s only one thing college students love more than going out for drinks; going out for cheap drinks. 

Not the bitter, watered down kind of drinks, but the really good, drink-more-than-one-and-you-won’t-remember-anything kind of drinks.

It’s no secret that Dallas is expensive, but if you know where to go, you and your friends can have a great night without putting a dent in your (or your parent’s) bank account.

Down on Greenville, past OT and Gloria’s, lies one of the best Tex-Mex restaurants in Dallas - Blue Goose Cantina.

Like any Tex-Mex joint, they have your standard food and drink menus (with amazing queso) accompanied with extremely fast service and home to some cheap margaritas in Dallas. Every Tuesday, Blue Goose has $2 margaritas.

Two. Dollar. Margs.

No need to go to Mi Cocina or Gloria’s for one expensive drink when you can have multiple margaritas for the exact same price! Not to mention that unlike other fancy restaurants, these margaritas are not made in small glasses. Instead, they are brought out in big Irish-style pub steins.

The Experience:

My first experience with trying a $2 Blue Goose frozen margarita was a fantastic one.

It was crowded but we didn’t have to wait for a table and the atmosphere was fun and casual. We ordered some queso, and before long we were on our third round. They were delicious. Fairly sugary but matched with the chips and queso it was easy to finish one off without even realizing it.

Blue Goose should 100% become a staple in the SMU community of best drinking spots around campus. I don't know where else you could possibly find such a good marg for such a good price.

So the next time you and your friends want to go out or make plans, think of Blue Goose Cantina as your next go-to spot!
