In 1971, Mariano Martinez imagined a unique Mexican cuisine restaurant concept in Dallas which he opened with $500 and an SBA loan.
The restaurant was so popular that Mariano had to reimagine how to keep up with the demand for blender-made frozen margaritas. This led to his invention of the Frozen Margarita Machine, which is such a part of our culture that it now resides in the Smithsonian National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C.
Mariano’s imagination is still evolving America’s margaritas to this day, recently creating a new handcrafted margarita on the rocks collection.
Also operating as Mariano's at other locations, this restaurant offers classic Tex-Mex food such as fajitas, tacos, and desserts.
