Tuesday, July 24, is National Tequila Day 2018. And that’s reason enough to have a drink!

To celebrate National Tequila Day, Mexican restaurant chains like On the Border, Chuy’s, and Abuelo’s have some great drink specials featuring (what else?) tequila.

There is no particular reason why National Tequila Day is celebrated on July 24 each year. (It’s not as if there’s a bad day for tequila, right?) The calendar is full of fake holidays like National Tequila Day, which are generally created out of the blue for the purposes of marketing — or just as an excuse for guilt-free enjoyment of that day’s snacks or drinks. And, at some point, it simply became tradition for National Tequila Day to fall on July 24.

Here are all the places you can find cheap margaritas and other drink deals for National Tequila Day 2018.


Abuelo’s premium margaritas, which normally cost roughly $8 to $13, are all available for $6.95 on Tuesday for National Tequila Day 2018.


The National Tequila Day specials at Chuy’s include $1 floaters (small frozen margarita with liquor on top) and $1 off premium margaritas with Patrón tequila. Look for other discounts on drinks and free nachos during happy hour, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., as well.

On the Border

Classic ‘Ritas from On the Border are only $2 each for National Tequila Day 2018. Domestic drafts are $2 each Monday to Friday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. for the regular happy hour too.

$1 Jose Cuervo Shots at Select Bars

At select bars in Chicago, Houston, Orlando, San Diego, and Washington, D.C., a shot of Jose Cuervo Tradicional tequila will cost $1 each for National Tequila Day on Tuesday. The list of participating bars with Jose Cuervo drink specials are listed on the brand’s Facebook event page.


Chili’s has a $5 margarita special throughout the month of July, including National Tequila Day on July 24.
