$5 Jumbo Margaritas are Back!

We’re going BIG again this year for National Margarita Day! On Thursday, February 22nd, better known as National Margarita Day, we’re offering Houston’s Original Jumbo Margarita for just $5 when you purchase an entree. That’s the same price we had way back in 1978 when we were the first to introduce the jumbo margarita to Houston!

Throwback pricing on our famous jumbo house margarita is the perfect way to celebrate your favorite, quintessentially Texan, cocktail. Our time-tested secret recipe is refreshing and strong, just like our founder, the famous Wrestler, Cyclone Anaya! Did you know when we came up with the idea for the jumbo that we had to serve them in giant beer goblets, because the glassware didn’t even exist yet? We still serve them in similar glasses today!

You can take advantage of this special all-day, so plan your lunch, dinner, snack breaks, and anything else you can think of accordingly! All six of our Houston-area locations, including The Woodlands, will be participating. The promotion only applies to our Jumbo House Margarita after you’ve ordered an entree. No one should dive into jumbo margaritas on an empty stomach, right?

Now that we’ve taken care of your Margarita Day plans, the only thing you need to worry about is “Frozen or Rocks?” and “Salt or No Salt?”!

Be safe and enjoy it!



Top 5 Cinco de Mayo Cocktails

Cinco de Mayo is just one week away, which has us dreaming of festive libations of all shapes and sizes. At Cyclone Anaya’s, we have a whole host of options for anyone celebrating, with flavors that will please palates that like them sweet, spicy, strong, or anything in between.

Here are our top picks, including old favorites and fresh features, that will put you in the perfect mood for an all day all night Cinco de Mayo party!

  1. Anaya’s Spicy Strawberry Margarita

Do you like a little fire with your firewater? Then the perfect blend of sweet and spice in this margarita is for you. It consists of Corazon Blanco tequila, Grand Marnier, fresh lime juice, strawberry puree, and fiery habañero. Bearing our founder’s name, it’s just as big and bold as he was; indulge at your own risk!

  1. The Skinny Margarita

As the weather heats up, many folks are hitting the gym trying to get back in shape for the beach this Summer. If you don’t want to let Cinco de Mayo get in the way of your fitness goals, give our skinny margarita a go. It’s a margarita stripped down to the basics: 1800 Silver or Reposado tequila, fresh lime juice, and Splenda. Amazing!

  1. Fronnie’s Cuervo Bomb

If you really want to have a blast this Cinco de Mayo, this margarita is a must try. Simple, yet powerful, you should have a ride lined up before placing your order. It’s our famous house margarita in either the regular or jumbo size, frozen or on the rocks, with a shot of Jose Cuervo dropped in. Pro Tip: The shot drop into a jumbo rocks margarita is dramatic and magical!

  1. Texas Peach

It wouldn’t be Cinco de Mayo without at least one tequila shot, right? Showcasing 1800 Silver Tequila, made from 100% blue agave, this shooter also includes peach puree, orange juice, and pineapple juice. The fruit flavors complement the premium smooth tequila well, making this shot go down maybe a little too easy…

  1. Houston’s Original Jumbo Margarita

The margarita is a Cinco de Mayo staple, and of course, bigger is better! That’s why we invented the now widespread jumbo margarita back in 1978. The ingredients are still a closely guarded secret, but anyone who’s tried it knows the medley of flavor, strength, smoothness make this the perfect margarita. It’s a must-have for any Cinco de Mayo celebration; and while you’re enjoying it, read more about its story here:
