Out of all the tequila joints in the Southwest, the judges for the Sante Awards picked Dallas’ Blue Mesa Grill as numero uno. Surprised? Not me. They offer at least 100 (I quit counting at 40) tequilas and each month they feature a well-known tequila or one from a boutique distillery. Owners Jim and Liz “Baroness” Baron (left) are also dedicated locavores: starting in 2009, the fresh fruit for all of their cocktails will be sourced from Texas farms. Oh, did I forget to mention the complimentary quesadilla bar they feature during happy hours? Good times, we love free food.
