We at the Denver Omelette are always looking for a good value. And… we may have just found our go-to cheap date deal of the summer. If you’re looking for me or Pepper Lowell, you might just find us on the patio of Wahoo’s Fish Taco sipping one of these bad boys. <———-
Now I know Wahoo’s is nothing new. They’ve been in Colorado for years. But every once in a while, like a fabulous pair of red shoes hiding deep in your closet, you re-discover an old friend. In this case – we’ve rediscovered a super sour, uber-potent, cheap-o buzz in a pint glass kind of friend. My buddy… I’ve missed you.
Now I’m not going to lie – Wahoo’s margaritas are not hand crafted or freshly squeezed. I cannot say what kind of tequila is used in their preparation. It is quite possible there is nary a lime nor real sugar involved in the making of this drink. Rather, I’d say they’re more along the lines of the pre-mixed, spiked with Everclear and sweetened with apple juice variety of margarita (see also: The Rio). Pepper and I can also attest: they’re a sneak up on you, punch you in the face, leave your car in the parking lot because you lost your keys kind of margarita. I do not lie – it takes only 2 to get there.
They’re also only 5 bucks and served in a pint glass people. Add a fish taco plate and you have dinner and big time buzz for $10.
So yeah – if you’re wearing your hoity-toity fancy drinking pants the margs at Wahoo’s might leave something to be desired. But if you’re down to a $10 in your wallet and you want to do some decent people-watching on a patio with your best cartoon gal pal, head to E 20th & Sherman and kick back with this tall cool neon green concoction. Hello old friend… don’t mind if I do!
