Hussong's is a little bit of history. The margaritas, which were invented here, are strong and tasty. We had them on the rocks, but they make blended ones as well. 3 margaritas were USD 7.10. The bar is non-smoking.

We went on a Saturday night, unintentionally through the back door. The place was very alive with locals. Musicians everywhere. So packed we couldn't even get to the bar. Recommend visiting on a non weekend night.
