Margaritas, Tacos and Beer in Mt. Washington Valley, NH

Food & Drink

We just have to let you in on some of the Mt. Washington Valley’s best spots for the creative takes on classic tequila drinks, ice cold beer and out of the world tacos.

Restaurants in Mt. Washington Valley, NH all offer a great twist on these refreshing classics.

They’re a great option for when you’ve spent all day at Story Land, just finished tubing the Saco River, or are looking for something spicy and fresh to mix up your midweek dinner routine with!

Below are five ways to get your tacos and margaritas fix! But these aren't the only restaurants serving up great food! Click here for a list of all restaurants in Mt. Washington Valley!

1) If you’re looking for a fantastic, but lighter version of the Classic Margarita, Black Cap Grille in North Conway, makes a flavorful “Skinny Rita.” It will hit the spot and keep you refreshed, but it won’t leave you feeling uncomfortable. If you want the real thing, don’t worry, Black Cap has you covered there as well.

2) You’ll definitely want to bookmark Fiesta Jalisco’s as a must-stop. Located in North Conway, it offers indoor and outdoor seating. Mentioning seating is important, because Fiesta Jalisco’s margarita’s will knock you off your feet, they’re so delicious. An insider tip would be to order their “Skinny Margarita” in pitcher form. It has a splash of freshly squeezed orange juice, sliced lemon and lime and is bursting with flavor. A pitcher serves four, but no one says you have to share!

3) We might get a few odd looks at this next statement, but one of the best drinks you can have in the valley isn’t a margarita at all. It’s the Mexican Mule, made with tequila, hand-made chile liquor and spicy ginger beer, served at The Oxford House Inn, in Fryeburg, Maine. The Oxford House Inn has a speakeasy in its basement that serves casual fine dining and every Tuesday, seasonally, it offers a Taco Trio night.

4) On the other side of the state line, about thirty minutes north, Matty B’s is slinging some really good tacos. Like really, really good. Located at the base of Attitash Mountain, Matty B’s vibe is super chill, super relaxed and it serves up awesome food and ice cold beer. Plus any one of its bartenders can throw down a margarita worthy of the tacos it serves.

5) Barley and Salt may be a tap-house with thirty-plus beers on tap, but it's also a restaurant focused on street food favorites! You'll find a trio of tacos that highlight the flavors of Korean BBQ or Thai Coconut, as well as Chimichurri chicken sandwiches, and Southwestern Chicken Soup.
